Everyone should respect wild animals as the living, breathing, sentient beings they are. We should leave them in the wild and let them live naturally without human intervention, predation, or destruction of their habitat. Hunting and fishing for sport are brutal means of showing dominance over wildlife and exotic animals. Mounted heads or bodies in homes do not show the respect we should all have for the wild animals in our environment. We can learn to co-exist with native wildlife and exotic animals if we simply acknowledge that they too have a right to live.
Living with Wildlife
From the birds at our feeder, to the deer in our local park, wildlife is everywhere.
Wildlife conservation is the practice of protecting animal species and their habitat.
Among NHES’ 12 guiding principles is a goal to discourage hunting, especially for sport.
