Ola Z., class 1b, Poland
The big problem is a destruction of rainforests and killing animals for their skin, horns, fins and tusks. People destroy natural habitats of many species and it often causes the extinction of some animals. There are charity organizations like WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) in which people protect endangered species. WWF started in Britain in 1961 but now it is active in many another countries for example in Poland. Polish WWF protect bears from the Tatra Mountains and everyone who wants to help can give money for this aim.
