    If spending money for endangered animals means less care for people, I don’t agree with that at all. Of course, for the ecosystem, we have to save endangered species. But, we, human, also have many serious problems like hunger, unemployment and problems of aging…
    We have to pay attention to these matters first. We must concentrate on the problems in human society. Preserving the ecosystem is the next problem. Because, it is human who conserve nature. So we need to do our best to keep human society healthy, first.

    I firmly believe that the government should spend money to preserve animal habitats even if this means less money for humans because of these reasons below.
    First and foremost, we don’t own this planet, and every species deserve to prosper as they are living creatures. In fact, what we did in the past was taking away animal’s habitats by the name of modernization, though we don’t have the rights to remove their homes. Therefore, as a gift of apology for our past actions, I insist we spend efforts on preserving and restoring animal habitats. Moreover, we need animals for various purposes. Nowadays, we are using animals for food, research, and even for love. As you can see, animals had become an essential part of our lives, so we need to maintain their population by saving animal habitats. Last but not least, we have to preserve animal habitats because we are a part of the ecosystem. As a part of nature, we need to respect other species living on the planet because we are not the only one in the vast circle of life.

    Today, people are developing environment to build comforts just for their convenience. However, this situation brings about destruction of animal habitats. Decreasing animal habitats is not just a one problem. It can cause many other poor executions to human. For example, less animals will cause shortage of food and it directly affect to human. Also, if people build roads or hospitals instead of protection animal habitats, it means people cut trees, pollute soil. Because of these construction, global warming will get faster than before. Finally, extinction of human may come earlier. Therefore, I think the government should spend money to save animal habitats even if this means less money for roads or hospitals.

    I think the government should spend money to animal habitats more than to roads or hospitals.There are two reasons why I thought like this. First of all, we are responsible for animals’s habitats because we made the environment contaminated by building a factory, chopping down a tree and so on. We’re living in the Earth destroyed natural environment these days. So, It’ll be totally hard for animals to make their own natural habitats. As Humans who are mostly responsible for this situation, We must put some money to animals’s habitats.
    Secondly we have to keep natural ecosystem. There are lots of animals of endangered species like Panda, tigers and something else. If endangered animals keep increasing, the ecosystem must be break down. And this will bring the extinction of humankind.
    Therefore, according to these two reasons, I think we have to put more money to animals’s habitats.

    The government have to provide funds to protect endangered animals. Animals must be protected because they are a precious lives. Humans have hunted many animals and destroyed their habitats to get meat, fur, sport(like fun), medicine, and to work. These activities have caused a significant number of animals to be extinct and endangered. Even now we have to protect endangered animals because of the greed of human. Also, we have to protect animals to conserve the ecosystem of the nature. If the number of specific species decreases and disappears, the ecosystem becomes unbalanced. Therefore, investment in endangered animals is not just saving a specific animals, but protecting the ecosystem of our planet. As a result, the government have to provide funds in the protection of endangered animals even if it reduces investment for the increases of human’s conveniences.

    As is written since the beginning of our existence, animals and also vegetation are fundamental for us, as humans, to exist and live, well they were the first thing alive on this earth. Seeing this from a cruel side, humans need animals so they can eat. We can become vegan or vegetarian but it’s not the same, protein is so important to our bodies and because human is so used to do it and live this way, we need to consume constantly to be healthy. So my answer is yes, government should put more effort in saving any kind of animal to keep the world in peace and abundant in species; plus we already know some medicine can be made from nature and sometimes is more effective in my own experience, so with this and for the not so worrisome diseases you won’t need to go to a hospital around the corner because there are already too many anyways.

    I think the government should spend money to save animal habitat even if they spend less money for roads and hospitals. Honestly, I think we are now using animal’s habitat because of one reason that we are stronger than them. If animals could talk, we are already kicked out by them. We freely use and pollute their habitats for development purposes. So far, nature has withstood our destruction, but from now on we have to take care about does ecosystem works well. Without animals and animal habitat, we can’t live normally. We can feel this by looking at how animals affect our daily lives. Such as clothes, foods, sports, and so on. In these reason roads and hospitals are a matter to consider later. We can build convenient facilities only when the environment exists first.

    I think this is a matter depending on which side you value more. Those who think that humans are more important than animals will prioritize the construction of roads and hospitals, and those who think that humans and animals are equal will work harder to protect animals. I think animal protection should come before building roads and hospitals because I share a similar position with the latter. Protecting the animals is keeping the environment and ecosystem healthy, and it greatly affects the survival of both animals and humans. On the other hand, building roads and hospitals is a secondary act to bring convenience to humans and to improve the quality of life. In conclusion, I think the fundamental respect for life should come before the convenience of human beings. Accordingly, the government should invest more money to protect animal habitats.

    I think It’s necessary for governments to balance the money for both saving animal habitats and facilities for human. Because human destroyed so many animal habitats, lots of animals are endangered. If the number of animal species decrease, our ecosystem will be messed up and even human will be in danger. So government must spend money to save animal habitats not for only animals but for human as well. Also living without facilities such as roads or hospital is impossible for us. So I think government should keep balance between these two options. Not too much or too small on one side or the other.

    First, my answer for this question is that government should spend money to save animal habitats.
    I think this question well expresses two opposing views in protecting animal habitats. Some people might think building social facilities is just for human and helping animal habitats is just for animals. But I think saving animal habitats is equal to saving human habitats. Our ecosystem is all connected, so all species influence each other. If just only one species dies out, human also can have damage. And this land is not just ours, so we can’t use all country land just for our convenience and shouldn’t be selfish. Also, saving animal habitats is about animal life, so I think animal life has more value than constructing roads or hospitals. Therefore, I think government’s first priority is to save animal habitats.

    Sure! I think the government should spend more money to save habitats in which animal lives even if it causes less money for roads or hospital. Asiatic Black Bear
    is one of the endangered species. In 1980s, Asiatic Black Bear became almost extinct because human destroyed their habitats and hunt them for medicine. But then Korean government raises awareness to protect endangered animals. So they started project to save Asiatic Black Bear. They are still endangered, but they weren’t extinct. If the government ignored bear’s danger, there would be no that bears in Korea. We can develop roads or hospital later, but there’s no ‘next time’ to save endangered animals. If we hesitate or put human’s interest before any other animal’s life, we cannot see them anymore.

    I think there already exist lots of roads and various hospitals. Also I understand that these are more needed for a better human life. However, this convenient facilities are only to humans but not for animals. In the process of construction, humans have destroyed not only ecosystem but animal habitats. As a result, some animals are now endangered because there are no more their homes to live and prey to eat. The world cannot sustain without coexistence of humans and animals. Then, we have to protect their habitats for all creatures’ peaceful lives. The government is worth protecting animals for harmony with everything like humans and nature. In conclusion, I agree on the government have to spend money to save animal habitats.

    I think we have to spend money to save animal habitats. First, animals are also members of our society. Animals have been living closely with humans for a long time. Animals have enabled people to enjoy material affluence and build emotional connection. As saving animal habitats is one of the basic rights to them, we need to spend money to save animal habitats. Also, animal welfare is related to our health. Overcrowded breeding causes lots of diseases and increases the possibility of infection. It led people to become interested in improving livestock-environment and the government started make policy to ease the problem. Though this kind of movement can bring positive results, the most important thing is promoting animal welfare including saving animal habitats.

    I think the government have to spend money to protect animal habitats in spite of reduce money for facilities. People destroy the nature which animal habitats up to now for human convenience. As a result, lots of animals are endangered or extinct therefore ecosystem collapse terribly fast. If that crumble away we can’t enjoy goods from earth something like meat, fruit, grain etc. Of course, we can feel comfortable when make facilities but many of advantages that we can enjoy wait us when we preserve our nature like as stroll through the woods, create strong bond with animals. Thus, the government should spend money to keep nature just like animal habitats.

    I think it is essential for the government to spend money on saving animal habitats even if they need that money for modern conveniences. There are several reasons for this. First of all, humans are responsible for animal extinctions and endangered species. During the process of rapid industrialization, people destroyed natural environment and used many chemicals. This means we are one of the biggest causes of animals’ habitat loss. In addition, we have already got most facilities that we need through industrialization, so I think it is time to pay for the protection of animals. Secondly, the government should save animal habitats to maintain the ecosystem. If we don’t protect animal habitats, it will lead to animal extinctions. Continued extinction of many species can result the destruction of the food chain. To maintain biodiversity, the government should protect animal habitats rather than invest in convenient facilities for human beings. In conclusion, I believe that the government have to save animal habitats even if it leads to less facilities for these two reasons.

    I think the government should spend more money to save animal habitats than roads or hospitals. For a long time, we destroyed animal’s habitat just for our advancement and convenience. We chop down many trees to build factories, keep throwing chemicals away in to river and discharge co2 that the main reason of global warming. As a result, many species of animals loose their habitat and become endangered. Stronger than animals doesn’t mean the we can conquer them. We do not have any right to destroy animals’ habitat and disturb their lives. The Earth is not only human’s own, so we need to coexist with animals. In other words, destroyed animals’ habitat is not only their problem, in few days, it will become humans’ problem. Before the problem becomes bigger, the government and also people in the world should put more effort to regain animals’ habitat and make peace in the earth.

    Yes! I think the government should spend money to save animal habitats. Let us think about how the animal habitats were destroyed. of course, they were destroyed naturally. but most of those were destroyed by humans. For examples, Humans cut down so many trees for their profit. also Humans make dam in animals’ habitats. Humans do cruelly to natural environment or animal system for thier welfare. Therefore we have to protect animal habitats cause we destroyed them! Roads and hospitals are already provided for us. and I know that the more roads and hospitals exist, the more convenience we enjoy. But that’s enough. We just have to try to restore animal habitats feeling sorry.

    In my personal opinion, I think the government should spent money for animal habitats even if this means less money for human things because of some reasons. First of all, Human have ruled the whole world for a long time only because we are more intelligent creature than any other animals. In this process, Human have destroyed the natural environment for our benefits. This caused many animals to lose their habitats. It is too late to recover their all habitats, but at least we have to take responsibility to take care of them. Next, Human can’t live without animals. We can easily find out how important animals are in our daily life such as food, clothes, in medical science and etc so we should try to make animals alive not only for the survival of the animals but for the survival of the mankind. For these reasons, I think the government should spend moeny for animal habitats.

    Sure. I think the government should spend more money to save animal habitats than to build roads or hospitals. First, people cannot live without animals. Animals are all necessary to our life. They give people meat, coat, medicine, tea and etc. However, if we do not preserve animal habitats, endangered species will be extinct soon. Furthermore, if animals become extinct in the world, the ecosystem will be destroyed and disordered. The plants will also become extinct if the animals do. So the Earth will get confused. Plus many people may argue that developing the area is more reasonable than protecting animal habitats. Developing the area can create more profit than protecting it in the short-term. But in the long-term, protecting animal habitats and coexisting with animals are more desirable.

    In this question, I cannot say that I agree with one side. Of course I agree that government should spend money for saving animal habitats. Because humans have destroyed animal’s home by cutting trees and making human’s apartments or companies. If we consistently ruin animal’s places to live, our life can be also ruined. People need animals for food, clothes, bags or shoes and pet. So I can’t imagine humans life without animals. But on the other side, I think government should spend money for human’s hospitals if spending money for saving animal habitats means less money for roads or hospitals. That’s because hospitals are very important place that we cannot ignore and also we can use money more economically. So I cannot choose which side is wise one. I think government should take care of both sides with making balance.

    I think that government not necessarily spend money to save animal. because we are human, so we more invest people not animal. but I don’t advocate those who destroy animal habitat and nature. These people’s activity damage another people.(For example economics, ecosystem). Thus if we protect animal , that reason is it benefit people .
    we should talk saving animal for people not only animal. Goverment should balance policy for people and animal. Eventually for people.

    In my opinion, The government should spend money to save animal habitats even if this meas less money for roads or hospitals.
    People have developed many animals’ habitats. And The government has built lots of roads or hospitals that are needed for only people. Because of selfissness of people, More and more animals are endagered or extinct every year. Both people and animals are part of earth. Both have rights that live in this earth. But now people controll animals and for their benefit, People vilolate animals’ right that They can also live freely in this earth such people. From now on, We should save animal habitats instead of development. And even a little the goverment has to restore habitats that People indiscriminately have developed. People are not owner of the Earth. So, People and animals should live together with maintaing balance in earth.

    I think goverment spend money to save animal habitats. Because I think animals and people are equally important. And I think so bacause animals and humans interact. So they coexist for each other. Also, we should find appropriate standards that do not harm each other. Humans must not harm or collapse the habitats of animals. And animals should not harm human beings.

    I don’t agree that the government should spend less money for roads or hospital. Roads and hospital are important for human life in the aspect of convenience and healthy. I think the government should provide appropriate fund for human secure rather than spend money to save animal. If the government spend less money to caring for human, people couldn’t solve many problems such as low quality of medical service, underdevelopment of some districts, unemployment crisis, and so on. In conclusion, I think spending money to endangered animal is important too but spending money to services and facilities that are directly related to human life and survival is more important.
