But I also learned that the poaching of elephants has become very serious in eastern region of Africa ranging between 419,000 and 650,000 elephants. One of my favorite places we stayed at was called Elephant Watch and the also own an amazing orginization called Save The Elephants. You can learn a lot more at
The Most Extraordinary Organism- Giraffa Camelopardalis rothschildi Red List, Red List read all about it! Tallest endangered species in the world are the Rothschild Giraffes and there are only about 670 of this species left. (Giraffe on endangered list ) These beautiful graceful organisms are classified under Animalia, Chordata, Mammalia, Cetartioactyla, Giraffidae, Giraffa, Camelopardalis Rothschildi. The Rothschild Giraffe has found protection from man-made environment changes such as, the clearing of land for farming or the paid prize to hunt them down for sport, they now dwell protected in Kenya or Uganda, Africa. (Brennemann) The Rothschild Giraffe weighs about 2,500 lbs and can grow to be 20 feet tall, their height and great eye sight can be very beneficial in trying to observe any predators coming or when trying to eat from trees.
Emperor penguins have to live in very cold conditions ranging from -60 to 0. While living in these harsh conditions the Emperor Penguin must maintain a constant internal body temperature of 35-40. Penguins have a narrow temperature range in which their body functions most effectively so their body must adapt according to the season and habitat. The Emperor Penguin’s body is covered in overlapping feathers which act as an insulator to prevent heat loss. Also to retain heat the Emperor Penguins huddle.The process of maintaining core temperature is called thermoregulation.
Many countries are working on changing this and hopefully conserving the Asian elephants we have left. Asian elephants have many different qualities making them very special animals, however, these qualities make them targets for hunters and victims of habitat loss; but, luckily there are different projects countries are doing to help these innocent elephants. According to Smithsonian 's National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute Staff, the characteristics of the Asian elephant, including their diet, body structure, and trunks, is what makes them a very special and unique animal. Asian elephants are classified as herbivores. They eat things including bark, roots, grass, and fruit.
Many people over the world like to explore or visit Antarctica for many reasons. For example tourist come to research the wildlife (penguins, seals, krill and other different animals), sienceticet come to investigate the features of the animals how they live what kind of environment they are living in is it safe for them or unsafe for them and learn how they survive. People also come to investigate the climate change. Climate change is when we have to much heat in our atmosphere. People should be allowed to use Antarctica as it has the largest store of fresh water in the world.
In the article “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?”, the author states “A wild animal is never 100 percent predictable. An animal that has behaved one way for many years cannot suddenly change. Domestication is not something that happens in one or two generations: it takes hundreds or thousands of years (Lewis).” Exotic pets have a specific environment and climate that they are supposed to adapt to instead of living as a caged animal inside of someone’s home. Many may argue that exotic animals should be allowed as pet because people find them controllable when they are immature. According to “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?”, “Most people who own exotic pets find them irresistible-and manageable-when they are small (Lewis).” However, soon enough an adorable cub becomes a powerful adult.
This is true because in the text he says "Some examples are well known-- the 400 species of birds that migrate at night in North America, the sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs--and some are not, such as the bats that save American farmers billions in pest control and the moths that pollinate 80% of the world's pollution." He uses this to explain on how even creatures depend on the darkness at night, they migrate, they do their "job" as a creature, and help nature. With no darkness around to help them, they wouldn't be able to do any of these things. He also states that "Computer images of the United States at night, based on NASA photographs, show that what was very dark country as recently as the 1950's is now nearly covered with a blanket of light." This explains on how over the years the world has been losing more and more sunlight in most of the world, and that some of the world either doesn't get sunlight, or barely gets enough darkness.
The roads would make migrating much easier and more efficient for animals. An example of animals adapting would be elephants breaking out of zoos in cities, where they would adapt to life in urban areas instead of their normal habitat. The video mentioned that the elephants could break out of the zoo, but I personally believe that it would be quite hard for the elephants to
The first disadvantage is, animal glue is not easy to use. Marquetry centre, said this on the disadvantages of animal based glue. “Animal glue is not easy to use. It can only be used warm and must be kept at a constant temperature of 60-70˚C.”(Chastang 39-42). What this is about is that animal glue is hard to use and contain.
Giant Squid, a database, and Deep-Sea Vents, an informational article by Amy Bliss, describe the anatomical adaptations that allow giant squids and yeti crabs to survive in extreme environments. Zombie Worms Drill Whales Bones with Acid, science article by Martha Ennis, and Trip into Blackness, field notes by marine biologist Mariana trench, present the chemical adaptations that allow worms and jellyfish to also survive in extreme environments. The adaptations that each of these organisms represents is what make them so unique. Deep-sea creatures depend on chemistry to survive develop defense or survival mechanisms. According to Martha Ennis, “Skin cells of these structures [zombie worm’s root-like structures] produce an acid, which dissolves the bone, allowing the worm to extract the nutrients.” This chemical function allows zombie worms to acquire food without being dependent on other
For example, the Kruger National Park in South Africa is a protected area especially for the elephant population. The CAO team was able to use LiDAR sensors to image large areas and analyze treefall rates and patterns. An increase in elephant density leads to an increase in the treefall rate. Asner and his team were able to share these findings with park officials so that conservation strategies could be improved to manage the increasing elephant population while also maintaining the ecosystems functionality. The technology in the CAO is also able to digitally remove certain components from images such as trees and entire canopies.
Outside of modern day Beijing, a very similar looking fossil had surfaced, and it was dubbed: The Peking Man. The excavations at the Zhoukoudian were so numerous that a prominent evolutionary biologist at the time Ernst Mayr could see similarities between them and the Java Man. Mayr was able to compare the cranial capacities of the braincases from each site in the drawing of his conclusions. The average braincase capacity of the Javanese findings was 1,085 cc, and the average of the Chinese findings was 1,058 cc (Bruner 82). These numbers are shockingly close and with such a large volume of findings, hard to refute.
Literatures, especially creative writings possess moments when the truth changes perspective. A good example is from the piece by Dr. Seuss. This story is about how Horton the elephant make efforts to save small organisms called the Who’s from other animals who believe that the Who’s don’t exist. Who’s shout out loud to prove that they exist, and the animals hear
