Drilling for oil at the rainforest will cause so many problems like environmental effects and health effects on Indigenous Communities. Further, hunting animals is another major problem. The hunters hunt animals for money or food. They also are destroying the biographical habitat of the animals. In addition, the deforestation of the rainforest will destroy the animals’ homes and potentially kill hundreds of them.
Also the water pollution dirtied many pure lakes and rivers which leaded to some extinction of the marine animals. The destruction and the degradation are really killers that threaten a lot of individuals of some species. The second major cause of endangered species is the illegal wild animal trades. In spite of some laws passing to be against these trades, there are still many illegal trades all over the world in order to gain some benefits. Sometimes people hunt the wild animals for food.
Over half of the forests in the world have already been destroyed and this nu... ... middle of paper ... ...eir skin and bones (“Poaching”) However, many other types of animals are the victim of poaching, including bears, big-horned sheep, alligators, and even birds (The Humane Society of The United States). While poaching is illegal, the significant profits from illegal wildlife trade draw many people to it (“Poaching”). The easiest way to decrease the amount of poaching is to enforce existing laws, create stricter laws, and increase the sentences for convicted poachers. It is impossible to ignore the devastating effects of deforestation, water pollution, and poaching. However, through wildlife conservation efforts, these effects can be reduced, or even stopped.
The following factors are responsible for their decline. Hunting, loss of habitat, and just plain apathy on part of the public to preserve the bio diversity of our land. During 1994/95, a total of 19,430 bear hunting licenses were issued to both residential and non-residential people. There were 3,790 so-called legal bear kills in BC alone. It is estimated that out of every one legally killed bear be it grizzly or black two are killed illegally by poachers primarily just for their paws, head, gall bladder, and reproductive organs.
Water pollution, air pollution and noise pollution have adversely affected the wild life. c) Population growth:- Population growth is a major threat to conservation efforts in many developing nations. The population pressures threaten parks and protected land. The impoverished peasantry is forced to depend on a dwindling natural resource base. The people with traditional rights on forests continue to destroy flora and fauna and thus affect the wild life.
Deforestation should be banned Deforestation is an issue all over the world. It harmfully affects everything in a way or other, including the ecosystem, human beings, and the animals that live in the forests. The outcomes of cutting down thousands of trees increases as human beings increase in their population, and the long-term results can be shocking as more and more species of animals become endangered. I have three reasons why deforestation should be banned. Firstly, Deforestation cause loss of habitat for millions of species.
A main aspect of this issue is that it destroys habitats for important species, causing extinction and endangerment. The Golden Lion Tamarin, one of the most endangered species in the world, is in jeopardy of disappearing with the rainforest. Their habitats have been fragmented into small, unconnected areas and their food sources limited (Lang). Once the golden lion tamarins disappear, it can no longer fulfill its niche and the entire system is threatened. For thousands of years, humans have cut forests for agricultural purposes like planting crops, raising livestock and obtaining essential goods.
this is disrupted in many ways like natural selection, natural disasters and poaching, poaching bing the biggest contributor to animal endangerment. if we lose one type of species we will lose diversity and complexity that is a necessity for a healthy ecosystem. for every animal that is killed legally one is killed illegally in the united states in other parts of the world the problem is far more devastating. Poachers usually target animals of value like the african elephant,spotted leopard, black rhino for their horns or fur. The illicit animal and plant trade is slowing the population growth of endangered animals furthering their path to extinction making an unbalanced ecosystem.
One of the most compelling problems we face today is the degradation of the Environment. Though nature does contribute to the degradation of the environment through natural disasters and wildfires, the most apparent and controllable contribution of harmful acts to the environment are humans. Some factors that cause this degradation are overpopulation, pollution, deforestation, human interference, and government corruption, landfills and land disturbance. These then go on to affect loss of biodiversity, impact on human health, ozone layer depletion and of course loss of tourism industry. Growing up I was able to go farming with my grandmother and as I walked through the pastures of green leaved trees, I enjoyed the kind breeze that kissed
The environment may also affect animals. Drought affects the animals water supply and plants. People cut down trees for wood, and most people don't know that are cutting down an animal's home. Wildfires also cause the loss of habitat for animals. Poaching and smuggling are main causes of an animal becoming endangered.
