  2. Write a clear opinion.

1. Opponents of current conservation initiatives argue they are an unnecessary waste of valuable resources. 2. The natural development of ecosystems involves animals going extinct and fighting for survival. 3. Human intervention can therefore be seen as unnatural to a certain degree as animals that adapt will flourish and others will become obsolete. 4. Added to this is the economic burden. 5. The majority of endangered animals are in developing nations in Africa, Southeast Asia, and South America. 6. National governments in these countries have a variety of other concerns related to healthcare, education, employment, and so on that take precedence over animal populations.
