Ecuador, The First Nation To Give Legal Rights To Wild Animals
A great deal of beauty, richness & fulfillment can be found within nature, but a number of animals regularly face serious challenges.
Human activities have contributed to most of these issues
One of the challenges is also the rapidly growing human population, which, over the past few decades, has crossed a billion.
Over consumption of natural resources endangers the habitats of numerous wild flora and fauna.
A large number of species have started declining; some have also faced extinction.
However, despite acknowledging that improving the welfare of wild animals is a challenge itself, our society remains responsible for most of the environmental degradation.
To protect wildlife species, a historic decision has been made in Ecuador, which is the first country to give legal rights to animals.
This decision came after the case of a wooly monkey named Estrellita surfaced.
She was taken illegally from the wild by a librarian named Ana Beatriz Burbano Proaño and her family when Estrella was just a month old.
