Every species plays an important role in maintaining an ecological balance among the living systems of the earth. These systems must continue to function if life is to survive. Loss of any species threatens the survival of several species inclusive of man. Manâ€™s own survival depends on his willingness and ability to cooperate with the living environment. Human beings turn to nature and wildlife for spiritual, psychological, physical and cultural benefits. Why-should we care about disappearing animals?

This will equip the readers with fundamental knowledge in the field.
