Transcript of Save the Platypus!

Conclusion We should save the Platypus for Nature! The Platypus Save the Platypus for the Population!

When the platypus was endangered, the population started to retreat. In their only home, Australia, they started to decline. At some point, there is only platypuses in East Australia.
Save the Platypus We Should Save the Platypus for its Beauty! In my conclusion, we should save the platypus for its beauty, decline, and for this world. In fact, this should go with any endangered animal. It is mankind that has done and is doing this . Make a change in this world!!! Nathan Valdez
A2 02/27/13 The platypus is a mammal that lives in Australia. It has a beaver's tail and fur, and a duck's bill and feet. It used to be endangered, but was successfully saved. What is a Platypus? Thanks to laws, platypuses could be kept so we can enjoy these creatures, even though it is declining. Their reproduction rate is 18-80% that females will breed, and only a small portion (about 30-40%) of those offspring will survive. The platypus balances the circle of life. It helps the food chain, because there would always be a predator and a prey. This is important because without a prey, the predator would starve. Without predator, the prey will overpopulate the environment. Save the platypus for its population, nature, and its beauty! It is a beautiful, rare creature. Its features amaze me. Imagine an animal with combinations such as a duck and a beaver. It is one of the 3 animals that lay eggs (monotreme) We should try to preserve this animal. What if someone is born without seeing or knowing what a platypus is? That would be horrible! Counter Argument You might be a mean person who doesn't like animals. You might reconsider after reading this paragraph! You might think you have nothing to do with it. As humans, we dominate over animals so we should protect them. You might not like animals because they are dangerous or smelly. Who cares, it is OUR fault. "What is a fish without a river? What is a bird without a tree to nest in? What is an Endangered Species Act without any enforcement mechanism to ensure their habitat is protected? It is nothing."
