That resulted in the loss of Nationalism among the people as they started identifying themselves based on their ethnicity or religion.

7 Intelligence Milestones", 2011). Gorillas exhibit this intelligence potential in their ability to communicate, be self-aware, and make and use tools ("History & Milestones,", 2016). Intelligence, as it is used in this paper, means the capacity of a mind to understand what is happening around to acquire knowledge and apply it in practice. The gorillas this paper refers to are in captivity, and their intelligence compared to humans’ intelligence is being tested by scientists who raise the gorillas from very young ages ("History & Milestones,", 2016). Gorillas have exceptional communication skills.
Before the incident the apes lived in harmony with their environment and their fellow creatures. Soon after the contact they start to exhibit the origins of complex thought by inventing the first technology, primitive tools. Using bones they realize they can intimidate and even kill their rivals, but also kill small mammals for food. Consuming a flesh diet allows their brains to develop rapidly and become the top species on Earth. The film skips ahead to 2001 and portrays humans at the zenith of evolution and also the speedy pace technology has developed with us.
Brettell and Sargent open their book Gender in Cross Cultural Perspectives with a question: What is the role of biology in human behaviour (Brettell and Sargent, 2009, 1). Ward and Edelstein approach this question using cross-species analysis. They compare chimpanzee biology and behaviour to humans. There are four reasons that Ward uses comparisons to chimpanzees. First, because chimpanzees represent our closest genetic relative and second, the social activities and behaviours may be reflective of human ancestors.
Study of the orangutan began in earnest in the 70s, when Louis Leakey dispatched Birutė Galdikas to join Jane Goodall and Diane Fossey in their study of the great apes (de Waal, 1995). While Goodall’s work with chimpanzees brought extensive public awareness to the animal (Quammen, 2003) and Fossey’s groundbreaking study of gorillas was so prominent a Hollywood film was based on her work (“The Gorilla King,” 2008), Birutė Galdikas and her orangutans didn’t capture the hearts of the public in quite the same way (Schwartz, 1987). That disregard is a shame, as there is much the orangutan can show us. One aspect is their place in relation to their family members in Hominidae; are the two species that make up the orangutan closer to humans than chimpanzees? Another topic worthy of further examination is their social organization, characterized by a complex social network with mostly solitary lifestyles (Strier, 2000).
Scientist studied chimpanzees in the Nimbia Mountains of Guinea, Africa the chimps were seeing using the rocks and wooden cleavers to break hard nuts into smaller proportions eat. There have been many instances where a scientists have seen chimps use sharp rocks to kill other animals when they’re on the hunt. The rocks are used as defense weapons when they’re under attack and the chimpanzees use male dominance to show who’s responsible. Chimpanzees in the captive have to find new ways to use the tools that are made. Chimpanzees in captivity ... ... middle of paper ... ...ps making tools on the wild.
So, the food gets transported from other countries the food prices increases every day. Many people in the country are poverty that means that they can’t buy enough food to feed themselves because it is too expensive. The second hungriest country in the world is Haiti. Some problem it faces that leads to hunger is 80 percent of people live in poverty. Most of their natural resources were destroyed by hurricanes, floods, and tropical storms.
The Need for World Development There is a need for world development because the countries known as Less Developed Countries are still poverty stricken because of Global Inequality. This means that the wealth and the resources amongst the worlds population is not evenly spread meaning that the average Bangladeshi has a GDP of $160 a year whereas an average Briton has a GDP of $8460. The worrying thing is that this Gap between the rich and the poor is increasing not decreasing. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, stopping developing countries. Reasons for lack of development and global inequality is due to the many wars that have taken place in places like Sudan in Africa which has killed 4 million southerners, many fled the country for better living standards as most of them were starved and malnourished as they could not earn enough money to feed themselves or buy crops.
Even the White Rhino population was hit hard because of poachers seeking their priceless horns. The Los Angeles Times reported that,” The world’s largest surviving population of white rhinos suffered its heaviest toll on record last year when poachers killed more than one- thousand of the threatened animals to feed an international market for trinkets and potions made from their horns” (Williams 1). According to the WWF, The population of the White Rhino has diminished to a mere twenty- thousand. The worst part is the rare tusks are being used for the most unbelievably useless products. The number of White Rhinos are so scarce that even the killing of one- thousand is a huge blow to the delicate and slowly increasing population.
