Why are salamanders important? Salamanders perform various jobs that are beneficial to humankind. These jobs include feasting upon insects that we call pests, and maintaining the health of forests all over the world. Perhaps the most important role that salamanders play in the world is that they help prevent global warming.
The simplest job that salamanders perform for humankind is ingesting insects. By feasting upon various insects salamanders help limit diseases that certain insects spread. If salamanders didn't exist, then the world would be overrun by bugs, and humankind would be suffering from agonizing bug bites and deadly diseases. By ingesting insects salamanders also maintain the delicate balance of their habitat. If there were no salamanders to eat all the insects then the salamanders' habitat would wither away. However, the most important thing that salamanders accomplish by devouring insects is that they slow down the release of carbon into the world. You see, when the insects eat the decaying leaf litter on the forest floor they release carbon, but by preying on insects salamanders limit the amount of carbon that is released. Why is the release of carbon important? It is important because if there is too much carbon, nature doesn't have time to disperse the carbon into the world. This is dangerous because too much carbon in the world leads to erratic changes in the current environment. These changes have been labeled as global warming. Although salamanders cannot stop global warming, they can hinder it's progress, and is this is what makes salamanders so valuable.
Salamanders are remarkable creatures that are worth saving. They perform necessary jobs that are beneficial to us and the world, and never once have they asked for anything in return for completing these tasks. However, now the salamanders are suffering greatly for their kindness towards humanity. We releases so much poisonous chemicals into our streams and rivers that the salamanders are now dying from it. These creatures, who help limit global warming, a problem we caused are dying. It's time for us to help them as they have helped us.
