Saving Our Endangered SpeciesWe must protect our endangered species from becoming extinct, because when one becomes extinct, the food web is broken. Because of this, a lot of other living organisms that depended on that species for survival needs will also become extinct. We are fortunate today because we have people that care. For example, organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, World Wildlife Fund, and the Audubon Society are saving our endangered species. Also, the federal Endangered Species Act was passed by Congress to protect all Endangered Species in the United States. If we want our next generation to see and enjoy them, we should try our best to keep Hawaii's unique ecosystems in BALANCE.
