    Wild life

    Stop killing animals to save their lives
    I think here "wild life'' is better to say in spite of ''their lives''


    • '' Stop killing animals to save wild life''

    Is it right?

    Yes, you are right. Otherwise the phrase sounds like a tautology. But spell wildlife as one word.

    When you repeat the same idea in other words, and as a result of that the sentence sounds ridiculous and thus becomes defective.

    E.g. Yesterday I talked to my mother-in-law who is my wife's mother.
