Animals are our younger brothers. That’s why we should:
Protect them and their homes;
Keep the forests, reservoirs;
Reduce the hunting as much as possible;
Shouldn’t shout where animals live;
Create more parks;
Do our best to help animals survive.;
If we don’t do anything, one million species that are alive today will have become extinct 20 years from now.
