Notably, some species are endangered. In the past, the focus has always been on protecting such organisms from extinction, which resulted in the neglect of other plant and animal species. Consequently, the unprotected species are currently susceptible to this risk as well. Furthermore, according to Hong, (2016), a wide variety of species in an ecosystem can cope with threats compared to a limited number of them existing in a large population. These justifications stimulate the need for advocating for biodiversity; hence, conservation should encompass the entire ecosystem, rather than an individual endangered species.
