In recent times, many species have passed out of existence sooner than they would have naturally.The problem is that animals are getting extinct faster that we thought and we are running out of time to save them. In order to solve this problem we need to create habitat preservation, habitat restoration, anti-poaching measures, wildlife corridors, and laws and policies. This is what we owe back to the animals of the world for making their lives harder to survive by changing their way of life, from global warming to destroying forests to build skyscrapers, to bad energy resources. Now the
As much attention as this subject gets from environmental groups and agencies, it gets just as much ignoring by the general public. Many people feel compelled to help or contribute, yet few seldom do carry out their intentions. This is a very serious subject that needs to receive immediate and full attention from the general public. Only they can truly make a difference. The concept of extinction just doesnt seem to be fully understood by many people.
Introduction More and more species are becoming endangered every day and around 6000 are already endangered. Species endangerment is causing major issues, in our ecosystems and biosphere, as well as many other big problems that not many people realize and/or do anything to change. Even though there are many causes for extinction, the impact of habitat loss is the major reason that animals are becoming endangered and it is all our fault, the habitats being harvested for human consumption. Why Does Extinction Matter? Merriam-Webster defines extinction as the state or situation that results when something such as a plant or animal species has died out completely.
Many people have different ideas about what an endangered species is, but the definition of endangered species is a type of animals and plant which is in danger for extinction by different reason . In this modern time, we see a lot of animals disappearing because of humans. This action is made with no or indifferent care about life and existence of biodiversity species and there contribution to the ecosystem of the world. In addition the uncontrolled humans developing is causing serious damage to the habitat in which species can't sustain their life's generating a very prolonged list of endangers species as a result. When globalization spread over each part of the world, it influences several aspects of the habitat where we live.
In the early days people lived in fear of plagues because in those days plagues would kill hundreds of thousands of people. Nowadays we have epidemics, HIV/AIDS, killer Flu H1N1, and STDS. And as the world gets older we continue to have more and more of these deadly diseases. The sad thing is we have to hope that along the path of our life’s we do not fall victim to one of these diseases, and live our days in the best heath as we can. Living a 100% healthy life is not likely to happen because in one way or another you are bound to get something even if it is not deadly.
This complex development disability, autism is an extremely heavy-hearted disease and it can take a huge toll on the patient as well as his/her family. ("What is Autism? What Causes Autism?") As years have passed, millions of people have devoted their lives to researching autism and trying to finding a cure. To this day, they still have yet to find the cure for the poor people suffering from the terrible disease.
Initially, the United States Government has to show a keen interest in endangered species in order to provide sufficient support. However, they are not demonstrating much interest, resulting in downgraded support for these critically endangered species. For instance, the United States Government recently had their citizens take part in a mandatory and important survey to determine what the public is most apprehensive about regarding the government. The results show that the citizen’s are more concerned about political issues (su... ... middle of paper ... ...knowledge, motivation and organization skills that are needed to recover these species. As a result, they encounter many troubles and are unable to continuously and successfully recover species.
Endangered Species Endangered species are living things whose population is so reduced that they are threatened with extinction. Thousands of species are included in this category. The International Union for the Conservation of nature and Natural Resources publishes a list of threatened mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and (many people donÕt consider them) plants. CAUSES OF EXTINCTION Millions of years before humans, extinction of living things was linked to geological and climate, the effects of which were translated into major alternation of the environment. Environmental change is still the primary cause of the extinction of animals, but now the changes are greatly accelerated by humans activity.
As humans our population is increasing at a very rapid pace. Human interference with the natural wildlife is skyrocketing the rate of extinction for the animals that we coexist with. As more and more humans are born the more territory is required in order to live a comfortable life, but it seems that we are not aware of how our expansions throughout the world is affecting the lives of the native species. We jeopardize the lives of these animals when we recklessly flatten the surrounding land and drive the living animals out of their natural habitats. When we feel the need to acquire more territory in order to create a suitable place to live on, we destroy the already occupied land of the native species thus driving the rate of extinction to increase.
The main reason animals are becoming extinct is due to direct human causes and environmental issues. Some of these include: • Habitat deprivation • Human use • Entertainment purposes • Environmental causes such as climate change, rising sea levels and global warming • Exotic organisms • Pollution • Over fishing and poaching Habitat Deprivation Habitat loss is one of the main reasons why some species of animals are considered endangered. For example, the population of Africa doubles every twenty-four years. This means forests are destroyed to create space for people, to live and to grow crops, with the wood fro... ... middle of paper ... ...ustralias-most-endangered-species>. Dugong, n.d.
