Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

Now a days a lot of different animal species have disappeared and continue in danger of disappearing due to our lack of interest in other lives, lives that are not ours and that can’t express what they think or feel. We need to start thinking about our future in order to keep balance in our planet. It is important to take care of every living being on Earth, and a good example of an animal that suffers from our actions is the red wolf.

The red wolf is an endangered species of wolf that is native to the eastern United States. This species once occupied range throughout the south-eastern US but currently, its range is highly reduced, and only 50 of this species remain in the wild. Several factors have been responsible for the extermination of red wolf populations such as persecutions, environmental diseases, parasite infestations, competition for food and other resources. Several actions have been taken in order to avoid their extinction, one of them is breeding them and after that spread the animal in places where it was thought to have disappeared.

It is important for every human being to be conscious and to understand that all lives matter and it is important to support any movement or organization in favor of animals, either to stop making clothes with their fur or to keep them away from experiments where scientists try different products in order to see the possible result it might have on a human.



  • Lack: Not having any or enough of something that is needed.
  • Throughout: In every part.
  • Wild: Independent of people.
  • Breeding: To produce young animals, reproduce.
