Since the beginning of time, wildlife has faced the grim possibility of extinction. Many species, like the saber-toothed tiger, mammoth, went extinct several thousands of years ago. Other species like the Po 'ouli, West African Black Rhinoceros, and Pyrenean ibex, went extinct within the past hundred years. With the rapid increase in wildlife extinction, it is important that the necessary steps are followed to ensure a future for species world-wide. Within the United States, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service and the NOAA Fisheries (collectively referred to as “the Services”) work hard to provide care for the flora and fauna of their country.
Should extinct species be brought back to earth? In my opinion I think that de-extinction is a bad idea. Take the wooly mammoth for example, if scientists were to bring it back they could be taking resources away from other species causing them to disappear, humans might try to harm other animals that aren’t extinct, and scientists would have to successfully re-introduce this animal back into the lifestyle they used to have. Although some people believe that de-extinction is a good thing, I strongly disagree because of those three reasons.
Poaching is defined as illegally capturing, injuring, or killing an animal that is not on your land. The motive to commit this crime over the years has shifted from simply from individuals illegally hunting game to large organizations slaughtering animals to gain profit. Many are aware of this issue, but underestimate the sheer enormity of it. According to The Fish and Wildlife Service, there is an estimated $15-20 billion global market generated from poaching and trafficking of animals and their body parts. They have also reported that over 8,000 endangered species do not receive any federal protection.
In recent years, the topic of saving the Earth from Humans has shown itself in many conversations amongst the people of the public. Saving the World will be an issue we must solve in the near future because we are causing a mass extinction for animals, and we are harming and killing humans, but we can resolve it by using technology to reduce global warming and setting aside reserves. The most important thing humans must do in regards to this topic is begin to educate themselves and others on how drastic we must be in regards to it. The first major issue that must be made clear is the great peril animals are in, and what this means for the planet and humans.
Why should endangered species be protected by humans? People should know that animals and plants are creature that have the right to live in peace. Endangered species are animals and plants that will be extinct because of human activities such as hunting. Some people would use many kind of animals to take their leather and use to it as clothes, bags, and shoes. Also, humans are cutting plants in a suspicious way without thinking about this act and how it may affect nature.
A human being is depend on a multi species which whose have a complex interactions within a functioning ecosystems such as purify water, pollinate flowers, decompose wastes, soil fertility, buffer water flows, weather extremes, and also fulfil the social and cultural needs. About past two centuries, the humankind has become of one of the major extinction events on the Earth. This is including appropriating the major parts of the energy flow through the food web to favour the species before the extinction on Earth. Plus, in the past few decades, human which is also known as people have become aware of their impacts on the biodiversity and the threats of those impacts. Most countries have the biodiversity protection programs of varying
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated,” (Mahatma Gandhi). People should understand that animal extinction can be slowed, even climate change deniers. By looking at pollution, habitat degradation, global warming/climate change, and solution, animal extinction can be helped and decrease. Firstly, to mention that animals are being hurt with human products because people leave their trash in the environment. Under many circumstances, pollution has caused an immense problem in the world.
Every human brain is wired the same: to fear short-term threats. As a result, long-term problems such as climate change and world hunger are neglected by the U.S. until they pose a major threatーusually by then it is too late. Many scholars, understanding this disconnect, try to demonstrate the importance of investing in the future by instilling fear. Most prevalent today, it is repeated that if humans continue to release greenhouse gases, Earth will not be able to sustain human life and everyone will die. In response, people tend to comment, “not in my lifetime” or “scientists are dramatizing environmental observation for research money.”
Sabah is one of the states in East Malaysia that is a stakeholder to wildlife. When it comes to wildlife need I proudly say that about two thirds of Malaysia is covered in rain forest and the largest bed lies in Sabah. To quote… the lowland rain forest supports approximately 10,000 plant species, 380 bird species and several mammal species. The many diverse species of animals in Sabah, heralds a symphony of sounds in the forest which vary from day to night as different combinations of these birds and animals are given the right to roam and feed freely. Having this heritage in our own back yard, I am deeply concerned and am of the opinion that it is my profound duty to help endangered wildlife in Sabah.
Biological diversity defines according to article two of The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) which entered into force on 29 December 1993 as the variability among living organisms from all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part; this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems. Many studies try to estimate the number of living species in the earth starting from 15,000 describe species and 500,000 estimated species (Poinar, 1983) then from 3–5 million (Tangley 1997) and 50 million (May 1998) then last but not least 11 million with around 18000 species described each year (Chapman 2009) .but all studies gives an estimation
Annotated Bibliography: How Climate Change Is Affecting Our Planet Controversy statement: Climate change is been debated for over centuries now. People all around the world are taking action and reducing burning fossils to minimize the gasses in the atmosphere. Many people believe that climate change doesn't exists. But there are a lot of controversial topics that proves that climate change is real. In my opinion, climate change is slowly killing us and destroying our planet.
