Why You Should Respect the Space of Wild Animals

Wild animals are inherent elements within nature. Truth be told, humans are as much animals as elephants, apes, and zebras, but more civilized and intelligent in some ways. With that said, all animals should be respected. But some humans get caught up in being at the top of the food chain, making them cocky and uncaring of wild animal matters. Unfortunately, this kind of disconnected, backwards thinking leads to species extinctions and habitat losses. So, to save the world with all of the animals in it, here are several reasons why you should respect the space of wild animals.

They Were There First

Most animal lineages go back for eons, with evolution leading the way in their development. The same can be said of humans, of course, but the wild animals that remained wild animals were here long before modern humans. So, if you want to base your respect on superiority of a position or premises, animals were there first. You should respect them because this was their home before it was yours. It’s highly unlikely that a wild pack of lemurs would ever wander into your home and set up shop. So, why should you do that to them by building a home in their natural habitat?

Wild Animals are Stronger, Faster, and More Instinctive

While humans have evolved in what is considered civilization, thousands of species of wild animals have become stronger, faster, and more instinctive. They follow their natures, letting their true selves lead the way in their decisions and thought processes. Wild animals should be respected because they are nature incarnate. They embody everything that humans aren’t, in all of their civilized wisdom.

You Could Be Destroying an Entire Ecosystem

When you disrespect animals with littering or slaughtering them or their habitats, you could be destroying an entire ecosystem. It’s the equivalent of pouring molten lead into an ant hill just to see the cool effects. You are, in reality, destroying a smooth-run, well-oiled ecosystem in the name of your own entertainment and fun. It’s wrong. Live and let live. It’s gotten to the point where animal protection officials and preserves have to take out animal life insurance to ensure the continuation of a species after an endangered animal dies.

Despite views to the contrary, humans are not the kings of the world. They are merely inhabitants—the same as any other animal. Respect of wild animals should be a given. And an appreciation for nature should be a passed down trait. Teach your kids that wild animals deserve to live and thrive as much as you do, because compassion will go a long way towards a good life.

Things you can do to keep your car running smoothly

Our cars are incredible machines, designed to take us anywhere we want to go in almost any type of weather condition. As a result, it’s important that we take care of our cars by performing the routine maintenance when it’s due. All cars have a few general areas that should be checked at specific time intervals. Keeping up with the routine maintenance on your vehicle will keep it running in optimal condition and extend the life and performance of your car.

Change Your Oil
Oil is considered liquid gold for your car. It can’t run without it. This is why it’s a good idea to change your oil at the recommended mileage checkpoints. Clean oil and a new oil filter will keep your car performing as it should. Typically, your oil should be changed every 3,000 miles, if you drive an older vehicle. However, modern technology has made it possible to go longer periods of time before requiring an oil change on newer cars. The suggested schedule for newer cars is every 7,5000 to 10,000 miles. However, between oil changes, you still need to consistently check your oil levels to ensure that they are adequate, and add oil as needed. You can even check your gas to make sure it’s burning at an optimal level with the flue gas analyzer.

Check Your Brakes
Lots of driving and frequent stopping can wear on your brakes over time. When it’s time to service them, more often than not there are tell-tell signs. You may notice loud squeaking noises when you apply the brakes, grinding signs, slower stopping, and pulling to one side. These are all signs that your car is trying to tell you that it needs new brakes. If you notice any of these symptoms, have them checked right away. If you continue to drive your car when it needs new brake pads you run the risk of ruining your rotors which are even more costly to replace.

Keep an Eye on Your Tires
Your tires are shoes for your car. As a result, it’s important that your car wears shoes that are in good condition, if you want it to continue to take you everywhere you want to go. Worn tires perform poorly in inclement weather conditions and don’t provide enough traction for abrupt stopping. As a result, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your tire’s tread and pressure and make sure that they are at the right levels. This will ensure that your car can do what it needs to do when it comes to your tires.

As a car owner, there are several things that you can do to ensure that your car runs well and is safe to drive. Get familiar with your cars manual to find out when you should have the scheduled maintenance done. It will keep you safe and boost the performance of your car.
