If deer go extinct, we will earn failing ratings for our environmental care. All deer require is a clean natural environment, water, and food. If deer are unable to locate proper habitat due to human overpopulation, we live in a terrible world! Animal populations can become seriously threatened at any time. When animals become endangered, so too may their genes disappear forever.
Animals play an important role in the environment, without them life as we know it could not exist. Animals influence the environment in many ways such as by removing pests, spreading seeds, and decomposing dead organisms which can be used as nutrients by other plants or decomposed further. Changes to animal habitats usually result in changes to its surrounding environment. For example, when animals are removed from an area of land they often cause the extinction of species that depend on them for survival because there's no longer a niche available for these species to fill.
Extinction is defined as the loss of an organism or group of organisms from the world's fauna or flora. Scientists have estimated that since the dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago, up to 99% of all living species have gone extinct. The main causes of extinction are humans, mammals, and insects.
Extinctions happen all the time. It is one of the mechanisms by which biodiversity arises and decreases every day. Biodiversity is the variety of life on earth, and it has been greatly reduced by humans.
If you mean a deer population, it may disrupt the local environment for a while until another organism evolves into that niche. When conditions are terrible enough for a population to become extinct, the ecosystem is typically in horrible health, and many other species are also becoming extinct. If the deer population decreases but isn't low enough to cause an extinction event, then they will likely be replaced by other organisms that can survive in these conditions.
Deer play an important role in the ecology of many forests around the world. Without them, these forests would be severely damaged or even destroyed. By eating the more fragile plants before they have a chance to grow, deer help promote growth of larger, more durable plants which would not be able to grow in this type of environment otherwise. Also, deer poop is very useful material for fertilizing soil, so removing them from these environments would significantly reduce the ability of these forests to sustain life.
Another important role deer play in these ecosystems is as a source of food for other animals. Deer eat some plants that are harmful when eaten in large quantities (such as berries during their peak season), so they can serve as "self-limiting" crops. That means they won't harm the environment if left alone, but cannot produce enough seeds to support much life outside of themselves. This allows more delicate plants to grow up after each generation, instead of being consumed entirely.
"If we cease hunting, the deer population will not continue to expand indefinitely and take over the planet." Another issue with leaving the deer population alone is that there will almost certainly be overgrazing. As more deer compete for the same food, crops, gardens, and woodlands will all suffer significant harm. Invasive species would also become a problem as humans retreat from populated areas.
Hunting is therefore essential to preserving wildlife and their habitats. It also has many other benefits for humans too, such as providing recreation, teaching people self-sufficiency, connecting people with nature, etc. There are many reasons why hunting should be allowed at all times of the year, not just during season.
The main argument against legal hunting is that it's inhumane to kill animals for pleasure. But this argument doesn't hold much weight since we allow animals to be killed in other important ways, such as when necessary for survival. For example, farmers need to kill animals who attack their crops so they don't eat them all up themselves. This form of killing is acceptable because it's done in the name of agriculture which has significant benefits for humanity.
Another argument against legal hunting is that it's cruel to leave animals suffering after they have been shot. But this issue also doesn't apply to real life situations where animals are killed in other ways, such as when necessary for survival.
