Kurtcu stated that informative articles have been published about the benefits of animals, feeding, care and living conditions in almost every country in the world because of 4th October World Animal Protection Day.

Kurtcu expressed that today, 7 billion people live on the earth, and in 2050, this figure is going to be about 10 billion.

Rapidly growing population, destruction of landscapes, destruction of natural areas, illegal hunting and trade are disturbing the balance of wildlife." Academician Gizem Kurtcu attracted attention that animals become extinct progressively under the bad living conditions. She said that "In short, while we are multplying, the number of other living things that we share at our planet is rapidly decreasing."

 

Underlining that there are many undiscovered varieties of our planet's, Kurtcu continued: But there is something obvious. We are rapidly losing our current values. For this reason, the Day of the World Animal Protection on 4th October is very important not only to remember the animals we see, but also to remember that all animals exist on earth that also have the right to live.
