Reptiles & other animals play a critical role in a healthy and diverse ecosystem. Without them, many of these delicate systems could become unbalanced and crash.
Deforestation, pollutants, and over-exploitation by hunting and collection in the pet trade have had negative impacts on animal species across the globe. It is up to us to ensure that these animals and their habitat remain undisturbed by human activity.
Check with your local wildlife department for ways that you can participate in protecting habitats for wildlife.
