If we do not get the oxygen we need we will not be able to breath the people will get sick and die. Then when people start to die the population will start to decrease in the rainforest . The animals are in the rainforest are in danger by other animals that they see them as a threat and try to attack to keep themselves alive. There are major threats to the rainforest such as mining, agriculture, hunting, fishing, ranching, and smuggling. Some animals keep themselves safe by camouflaging there surroundings.
Rainforests are home to thousands of plant and animal species and is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. The consequences of deforestation, if left uncontrolled, will mean extinction for some species – with the animals lost to date in Brazil’s rainforest region representing just 20 percent of those that will eventually die out due to loss of habitat. In fact, over the last three decades, deforestation has reduced living and breeding spaces, forcing 38 species to regional extinction ( ). Scientists at the Imperial College in London refer to the number of species headed for extinction as the result of deforestation as “extinction debt.” Without forest regeneration and conservation on private lands – not just reductions in deforestation, scientists fear that the damage done to the Amazon’s biodiversity may not reversible and that roughly 90 mammals will lose more than 40% of their forest habitat (Silveira Soares-Filho et al.
If we, people, are the ones who made all of these species go extinct, now we have to to bring them back. De-extinction could be a big step forward for genetic engineering and a bunch of other things. De-extinction could offer insights into evolution and natural resources that are currently unavailable to us. It would be very interesting to see a real mammoth in a zoo. Cons: De-extinction is wrong and strange.
In honors biology, we watched a film called Racing Extinction. In this film, we learned that humans are the main reason that species of plants and animals all over the Earth are becoming extinct at a rapidly fast speed. The men in the film showed statistics and images that were mind blowing, that I had absolutely no idea about. Humans are more destructive than we think, and we need to do something about it before it is too late. When most people think of the word “extinct”, they relate it to animals, instead of plants.
It ruin a lot of living environments, and cause a lot of damage to the living creature. Forests cover around 30% of the Earth’s land. Every year, massive spaces of forests are lost. Location: Deforestation happen all around the world, but tropical rainforests are mostly directed and pointed. Scientists believe that if the rate of deforestation increased, Earth would be in danger, as deforestation cause many major problems.
But still, I think that’s how it works...) Still speaking of what Marlo said,--I know, maybe you don’t entirely agree with what she presented, but you two were on the same side--she asked us “What if humans went extinct?” I personally think that then all the animals and the whole world, frankly, would be better off. After all, we are the main cause for the extinction of many species. Over time the Earth would fix all of the havoc and damage caused by people, and it would be an almost perfect haven, with a balanced ecosystem. Animal activists may think that it would beneficial to the animals. However, you also have to think about the animal itself.
Deforestation has a lot of negative effects on the Amazon Rainforest. Every time a tree falls down, there are fears that tribes won't be heard. Deforestation has led to decrease of native tribes. The Amazon Rainforest is a home to many native tribes and provides all they need. They fear that their tradition and culture might also disappear.
Humans have been around for a while and they are known to change and adapt to their surroundings. Many different groups over the course of history have been affected by deforestation because of the resources the rainforest provide. The rain forest is used as a supply of resources for people not only in South America but around the world as well. As the forest has been cleared away, species have been cleared with it. This is problematic for the indigenous people whose lives depend upon the on the resources the rainforest provides.
INTRODUCTION “The greatness of a nation is judged by the way it treats its animals” - Mahatma Gandhi Whether at home, on the farm, or at the dining table, animals play an important role in day-to-day life in the society. They happen to be companions, a source of livelihood, entertainment, inspiration, and of course food and clothing to people all over the world. Yet animals can and do exist independent from people and, as living beings, they arguably have certain interests separate from their utility to humanity. As such, the society is increasingly faced with legal, economic, and ethical dilemmas about the proper status for animals and the extent to which their interests should be respected, even when these conflict with what is best for humans. These aspects have resulted in a new
An extinction of one species could threaten many other populations. It's too late for some breeds, but with enough action to combat wildlife crime, poaching can be eliminated. It is our job as the human race to reverse the severe damage we have caused in order to sustain the balance of Earth's delicate
