However, they became excessively hunted by man, once discovered, and preyed by the animals brought onto the island by humans. This ultimately resulted in a drastic decrease in the numbers of dodo birds, which eventually led to their extinction. Much to the ignorance of man, and their disrespect towards other species at that time, the Dodo bird was last sighted in 1662. (Dodo bird, 2012-2015) In recent decades however, humans have developed a new and passionate appreciation towards the importance of protecting all creatures that roam the earth. In other words, we have discovered the importance of biodiversity.
Killing animals for food, making trophies out of their own flesh, laws that are not forceful enough. This is the world of endangered animals in China. In 1981 chinese laws to protect or hurt animals began. There are individual animals in china who are endangered and all have specific problems about their habitat. Animals have been getting extinct and endangered because of human privileges.
It matters how animals are treated before being slaughtered; they are living things with conscience and pain receptors. Animals experience fear, shock, stress and despair; they deserve a dignified death (Foer, 2009). Factory farming impacts on the environment and affects all humans. It is an earthly problem, and affects every life on earth. It can be argued that water, air and land pollution only affect a group of people, but it affects all humans using these natural resources (Foer, 2009).
The poultry industry is a major cause of environmental degradation in United States for last hundred years. It’s not only harmful to chickens and humans, but other species like fish and land mammals. In nature, chickens in small flocks over wide areas contribute to health and beauty of land. However, thousands of chickens are crammed unnaturally into small areas. This causes heavy disease to spread around the environment due to unwholesome and unnatural confinement of living creatures.
Although, the conservation of wildlife exists, they are often not very effective and the illegal trading of wildlife still continues. I believe wildlife trafficking is an unsuitable practice that leads to the extinction of wildlife and the destruction of ecosystems. At the same time, the trade of wildlife does provide a source of income for some people. The threat of wildlife trafficking isn’t just the deficiency of species; it also causes accidental killings of non-targeted species, interruption of nature and then causing habitat loss. This issue affects me since I live in a country where wildlife trading is quite popular and not many people notice this area of wildlife trading and how it has an impact on the environment around us.
The main problem of all of these issues are the same. They start with the people. The people continue to ruin the environment, from gas to littering, and these animals can’t survive like this. The zoos and aquariums can help them survive though. Most zoos and aquariums can provide these animals with food, water and a save environment.
not many people are aware and know how important the aquatic environment. many are more concerned about illegal logging in the forest while the animals in the water also need protection and care in ensuring the wildlife and their habitat is maintained. Widespread waste disposal is a problem that cannot be overestimated. this is because, the attitude of some people who throw garbage into the sea will have an impact and the effect is very large. Among the main effect of the disposal of waste into the sea is, waste such as plastic, water bottles, straws and so we all know these materials cannot be digested and can cause the animals in the sea died.
The Earth has changed, and over the years the course of human events has done a great deal to the environment’s conditions in many ways. Many countries have not been excluded in the changes in Earth, and all suffer a great deal from human settlements. Amid the human events committed, one of them would be human settlement across the Earth. Human settlement has affected our ecosystem in various ways, among those are light pollution, deforestation, and the disruption of animal life. Light pollution is often overlooked by people when observing pollution, but it is as dangerous to the environment as any other form of pollution; light pollution is the excessive artificial brightening of the sky and there are three types of light pollution; glare,
A wide variety of the many places around the world are heavily polluted with trash and oil. Places like the beach, parks, and even the streets occasionally are polluted. Most people are aware of how harmful the results of pollution are, but do nothing to help the situation. All the trash, oil, and gas have taken over several areas around the Earth and many of its beaches. Pollution has many terrible consequences that affect the environment, the animals, and even ourselves, the people who cause pollution.
Zoos have been a major concern for years and animal rights activists are not giving up on the poor imprisoned animals. The aim of this report is to show how animals in captivity do not have enough space to function normally and how they get sick has a result. In the zoo industry breeding is very looked down upon. Zoos have taken the initiative of breeding animals and trying to repopulate some of the species this is very wrong and must be ended immediately. Also more effort must be put in to save the surplus animals in zoos because they are getting killed off.
