If animals are becoming endangered there will be a smaller amount to learn new interesting facts. This shows that when animals become endangered there is a negative chain reaction. Next, the testing can have negative results. Humans can react differently to the chemical than animals. The vaccines tested, may have worked on the animals but humans can have a different response. If humans get sick from the vaccine that disease could become contagious. That illness can spread to various places in the world. Having an illness going around the world will cause chaos.
