There are some people who believe that the United States' strictly forced endangered species laws seriously hamper our economy. I on the other hand must disagree. The endangered species laws were created for an important reason: to protect our earth's biological diversity. Whenever humanity interferes with the ecosystem for the purpose of economic growth it tears it apart piece by piece. It is for reasons like these we must have such tough laws, as in the Endangered Species Act.
In April, little flecks of green accented the pink blossoms and slowly pushed out the pink until a fresh, vibrant green blanketed the crown of the tree. During this transition, the lawn became a carpet of pink. Then slowly th... ... middle of paper ... ... the old tree was producing only a few runt-sized fruit. One winter my parents cut down the tree. It left a scar on the lawn and a barren space in the yard.

As indicated by the chart on the right, the forests of the world have been greatly reduced through the actions of man. The various companies of the United States must assume some responsibility for the problems of the Earth's Rain forests. When we kill the Rain forest it is not just the plants and animals that we are killing, though they are reason enough to save it. From a selfish point-of-view, the Rain forest represents yet untapped resources that may be useful to us as we contract more and more diseases.
Kichiro explained that he was making the hole he dug the day before into a room. His mother laughed and returned to her flowers. ... ... middle of paper ... ...Kichiro took his sons hand and walked to the field where his hole had been dug many years ago. The father and son had arrived at the cherry blossom tree that was just starting to drop its fiery pink petals. Kichiro said to Kohaku, “My son, I built this many years ago, and there is something very special about it.
Unlike most kids my age, I did not have the typical summer vacation. Even though the idea of sleeping in, enjoying the hot sun, and watching TV all day seemed desirable, I always knew that was not my reality. Every summer since the age of 7, I worked in the fields with my parents. I would wake up at 4 am, pack my lunch, and help my mom get my younger siblings ready for the day. To this day, my family and I pick various fruits from apples, cherries, pears, blueberries, and grapes in the scorching sun.
Near the loose clothes line in the back yard, there are four rose bushes that need water. Dead daises and pansies from the previous summer are the main attraction in the front yard along with a five foot high metal windmill stuck in the middle of a flower garden that needs grease. The two car garage houses a huge '78 black Buick. The ol' Buick hasn't been driven in a while, but my Grandpa claims that it is still in top shape. I guess my Grandpa just keeps it around to remind him of my Grandma.
Chris Park Senior lecturer in the Department of Geographer at Lancaster University states, "The available statistics are impressive and... the rainforest's claim to fame as the richest ecological zone on earth"(26). In order to efficiently restore and protect the damaged land, animals, and people environmental agencies' must be valued. By destroying the forest, we are creating an open-door policy for disease. For example, the S.Amerindians have long adopted to endemic disease and have prevented them, in large part, by their adaptation to conditions of life over the 20,000 years they h have inhabited the tropical forest. With the lumber companies invading these towns and villages, their western germs are exposing isolated, once-contained people.
Since our ancestors are responsible for the extinction, it’s our duty to fix what our ancestors have destroyed (Donlan 2005). Moreover, according to Donlan (2005) most megafauna species in Africa and Asia are endangered or under threat. Hence, relocating them to North American is a best way of conserving them because the country carries “Global conservation implications” and contrary to that Africa and Asia practice poor conservation strategies (Donlan 2005). He further argues that N... ... middle of paper ... ...rupt native species and ecosystem hence making the restoration of both evolutional and ecological potential almost impossible. Whereas Donlan (2005) concluded that re-wilding North American is the best conservation strategy to the African and Asian threatened megafauna, meanwhile re-wilding will restores the evolutionary and ecological potentials in the process.
Natural habitats used by man or tampered with tend to become unsatisfactory or unsuitable for the native wild species. As I learned in class, habitat loss is the number one threat to modern primates. Not only do primates suffer, but habitat loss is the greatest threat to various parts of life on this planet that humans have caused. Simply speaking, along with habitat destruction, ties in the extinction of diverse species. “Biodiversity as a whole forms a shield protecting each of the species that together compose it, ourselves included.
The Earth has been through worse disasters than just pollution, and extinction of species and plants. Roderick Nash, an environmentalist and activist, says otherwise. In Nash published an essay, Island Civilization: A Vision For Human Occupancy of Earth in the Fourth Millennium, that clearly shows his negative view in humanity. He discusses the history between humans and nature and how humans have been biased against nature. He elaborates by talking about how when people explore the world, they are destroying it in one way or another.
