Scientists are calling for urgent actions to save parasites before they become extinct. These creatures are still essential for the environment.

According to the Daily Mail report, leading parasite ecologists recently published a study on the “ambitious global conservation plan” for the parasites.

Parasites survive as they love on another organism. While the continue to have bad reputation, only 4% of identified parasites can infect humans. Majority of the said critters serve critical ecological roles.

Chelsea Wood, co-author of the study, said they are a diverse group of species. However, people do not recognize them as valuable in the environment.

In the study, researchers propose 12 steps for conserving parasites that do not threaten human health or the domesticated “host” species on which they rely on. They seek to implement the conservation plan within the next 10 years.

Most of them are not harmful to humans. Mistletoe is part of the species that does not make all its own food. Having no roots of its own, it grows on other trees and sucks food and water directly from their trunk.      

Meanwhile, the researchers said only about 10% were identified, making it harder to conduct conservation efforts for existing parasites.

”If species don’t have a name, we can’t save them,” said study co-author Colin Carlson.
