Based on the findings of the recent survey, scientists urge humans to change their vicious hunting habits to prevent powerful disruption of the global food chains. It turns out many extinctions of species are caused by the reckless hunting techniques that humans use. Read the full article to understand why.
Researchers at the University of Victoria in Canada have paid closer attention to the methods and tools that human hunters use to catch their preys. Based on the information that has been gathered by analyzing the habits of 2,125 hunters, it was observed that humans are the cruelest super-predators.
Humans have long overcome that period of time when they needed to hunt to survive. These habits are now practiced to prove other people that they are fit to survive in all circumstances or that they are heartless killing machines.
Their hunting abilities are not generally acknowledged unless they manage to capture the largest prey possible. This explains why they fish the largest species of marine or land creature, thus causing them to run the risk of going extinct. In addition, the killing of adult exemplars has negative consequences on the perpetuation of the respective species because animals can no longer reproduce themselves.
Unlike the human super-predator, the rest of the hunting species follow the unwritten laws of nature and kill only smaller fish or land animals. This way, they ensure their food resources without affecting the ecosystem.
Chris Darimont, a well-reputed researcher at the aforementioned university, has been surprised by the recent results of his survey. He confessed that he never expected humans to be such merciless predators. In his opinion, humans’ deeds should be all the more condemned given that they have the ability to change their hunting habits, but they choose not to do so.
Using highly advanced tools to kill larger amounts of marine and land creature has further strengthened scientists’ belief that humans are the meanest hunters in the entire ecosystem. They are the only ones, who have used their intellect to develop deadly weapons against other helpless species.
Given the findings of the recent study, Darimont urges humans to change their vicious hunting habits. He believes they can enjoy the same wellbeing without necessarily killing other species. On the contrary, promoting eco-tourism could be much more advantageous both spiritually and financially.
