Some people think that a huge amount of time and money is spent on the protection of wild animals, and that this money could be better spent on the human population. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

In recent decades, there is little doubt that a lot of time and money has been spent on protecting
wildlife
. Some people argue that it is higher important to allocate these resources to the human population.
However
, I strongly disagree with
this
view for some reasons.
First
of all, it is undeniable that
wildlife
extinction could result in ecological crisis, which definitely affects human survival.
For example
, if the practice of whaling is not halted, the ecosystems of our oceans will be altered forever, and
this
might have a negative impact on fish stocks that many communities depend on for a living.
Secondly
, protecting wild animals means preserving our habitats in which we are living,
such
as rainforests and wetlands. If the habitat destruction is permitted, climate change would impact our capacity of producing food to sustain the growing human population.
Furthermore
, the protection of wild animals can
also
bring several benefits to human communities thanks to the formation of
wildlife
reserves. In order to generate revenue for their management, responsible
ecotourism
to observe animals in the wild could be developed
further
.
This
,
consequently
, will help create jobs for local people and attract more visitors to the reserves. The result is increased prosperity when local communities, especially in developing countries, are involved in running
wildlife
safaris.
Thus
, the application of intelligent strategies not only beneficial to humans but
also
wildlife
. In conclusion, I would maintain that it is still worth spending an enormous amount of time and money on the protection of wild animals because of its great advantages for both human communities and
wildlife
.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
