This includes forests or ecosystems that are presumed to be of 'high conservation value' are protected from palm oil plantations, potential timer industries or deforestation. Collaborating with timber organisations in North Sumatra, specifically the rain-forests which are located on Lake Toba and the town of Medan, to reduce potential negative effects on habitats and the specific Sumatran Orangutan population. For instance, various studies suggest that orangutans can survive in cleared forests if the extent of damage and impact is mitigated and diminished through actions such as selective logging, such as ensuring that a number of trees are left for this species to thrive as well as ensuring that fruit trees are still available. Mitigating human and orangutan interaction. Working with local governments, various timber, palm oil and logging organisations on practical methods to ensure that orangutans are kept out of these plantations.
Throughout the past several decades, the black footed ferret (mustela nigripes) remains at the near top of the endangered species list. These small mammals are one of the most endangered species in North America. The black footed ferret has little visibility compared to other endangered species. With a population of only 370, the black footed ferret’s chances of survival appear slim. Total elimination of the black footed ferret would negatively impact other species in its ecosystem.
In my area there has an escalated amount of pollution. The amount of pollution has affected the protected wildlife areas and parks. Polluted rivers are killing the wildlife, and animals are in danger because of the heavy amounts of pollution. A lot of people aren 't properly recycling their waste and that affects the environment, and the wildlife living in it, greatly. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has been trying to raise awareness around pollution since 1967.
Climate change is a public health concern that has significant impacts on the environmental ecosystem, agriculture infrastructure, and individual health outcomes today. It plays a paramount role in shaping our environmental atmosphere daily. With the rapid technological and environmental advancements in the 20th century, climate change has had negative impacts on the ecosystem holistically. From increasing sea levels to air pollution, climate change has affected all living organisms and evidence is visually perceived throughout changes in environmental outcomes. However, climate change is not solely due to natural causes alone; infrastructure and human contributions play a vital part in this growing concern.
Invasive species affect biodiversity as well as habitat eco structure in the environment. The highest threat invasive species pose to biodiversity is the threat on endangered species. Nearly 50 percent of the 1,900 endangered species are endangered because of invasive species and the ways in which it can alter an ecosystem. Invasive species are currently the second leading threat to biodiversity. Invasive species alone, have a stronger negative affect on biodiversity than forest clearing, disease and pollution combined.
Biodiversity Biodiversity is the variety of all living organisms in a specific habitat, it is made up with abiotic and biotic factors. Biodiversity gets used to measure the health in a ecosystem. Humans have, over several years, created threats to biodiversity, one of them is overexploitation. Under the impact of biodiversity changes and overfishing by humans, many species have become extinct, which, in the end influences the biodiversity again. Many solutions have been attempted to be created over time, though there are still many pros and cons for each of them.
The reading assignments for this week has been very educative about the environment and making it a better place for living. In this written assignment, I will examine some of the ethical issues related to population growth and their effect to the environment. Also, I will propose solutions to these problems base on the reading material available for this Unit. But before I continue, I wish to introduce us to environmental ethics and its definition which I think it is very important for us to understand so as to know our role to play in this beautiful planet. Environmental ethics is the discipline in philosophy that studies the moral relationship of human beings to, and also the value and moral status of, the environment and its non-human contents
Using organic fertilizers instead of harmful chemicals can keep the coral’s water fresh from the dangerous pesticides. If everybody follows pesticide regulations and follows the laws, it mill make a difference for the coral reef. With everyone 's help, we can all conserve and replenish the Great Barrier
To help contribute to these human-induced changes we can start by helping reduce dredging. This can be done by signing a petition to help reduce dredging and destroying the Great Barrier Reef this is easily done and can make a huge difference. We can help become more sustainable for the reef following the sustainability plan in the Great Barrier Reef we can do this by reducing household energy use, eating locally, recycle and save water. We can also help for reducing the poor water quality in the Great Barrier Reef. We can help as individuals by keeping paved surfaces clean, wash vehicles on your lawn, reduce fertilizer use.
They need to be able to find food or they will starve. After all global warming is also helping to kill hummingbirds, but there are many things that are killing off this species of birds. On the other hand hummingbirds have a very large range of
