On May 28, 1892, John Muir, a famous environmentalist at the time, founded the Sierra Club in hopes of helping and protecting America’s wildlife and land. The same year of the Club’s founding, Sierra Club protested over federal action that would decrease the size of Yosemite National Park (Sierra). This action could’ve been a leading factor in establishing the foundation. In the years following the Club’s establishment, they have spread across the United States, finding themselves in local neighborhoods fighting to keep the environment safe for children and generations to follow. Along with expanding across the US, Sierra Club has also had to adapt to changes in the economy, such as a rise in demand for factory goods, or government efforts to change natural parks or other areas of land.
1. 90-100 million tons are killed and wiped off the planet each year. Consisting of some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. Fish are a primary food source to 3.5 billion people worldwide and the depletion of the species is leaving millions of people hungry. Over fishing is a huge problem that needs to be stopped.
Between 1850 and 1900, trophy hunting by early settlers in North America was largely uncontrolled with negative consequences for wildlife populations. Over one million were killed. Wolves nearly became extinct due to over-hunting and poaching. By the late 19th century, following the devastating impact of hunting by early settlers, there was recognition among some hunters for the need to protect the remaining population. During the early 20th century, conservation groups such as the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) and the Wildlife Conservation Society played key roles in the establishment of protected areas in North America.
“ That means tigers and lions have around 18,000 times less space in the zoo then in the wild”.Zoos are becoming more dangerous for animals. 3,000 to 5,000 stressed animals are killed each year in zoos. Do you believe that over 400 animals are killed a month, 13 a day,1 every 2 hour all killed in zoos. That why we should ban zoos. The animals in the
An Elephant Never Forgets Have any species gone extinct in your lifetime? Imagine an animal you see every day, gone, forgotten. That is a real possibility for elephants over the next 15 years. It may not seem like a pressing issue, but elephants are dying at an alarming rate. According to Melissa Sciacca, Executive Director of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT), one elephant is killed approximately every 25 minutes.
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
In the United States of America certain regulations are definitely necessary for public safety. The regulations are there to better the nation and not further control it. The government can not get rid of everyone 's right to own and keep a gun but, they can simply control the amount of guns able to be purchased. Therefore, the government is not taking away peoples guns but, simply regulating those who can or cant not own them to better protect the citizens of America. And thus any remarks about the government taking away peoples guns are untrue, the government is doing this for everyone 's well
It is essential to take actions to protect wildlife from extinction. By doing so, we do not only ensure their survival, but also ensure the diversity of the ecosystem. If wildlife is eliminated from its natural habitat, the delicate balance of the ecosystem will be disturbed, which will impact the entire food chain. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, “one lost plant species can lead to the loss of 30 other insects, plant, and other animal species found in the higher levels of the food chain.
Over hundred million animals die from testing and animals die more from testing than hunting. This also led to the sixth mass extinction in the world. Over seventeen thousand in to a hundred thousand animals are dying and we are the ones causing it. About a hundred million animals die from tests and some scientists run the same test everyday and if the tests are deadly they could be killing animals quicker. About ninety percent of animals are in laboratories living in terrible conditions.
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. Firstly, wild life is facing extinction because of rampant deforestation. Numerous habitats are destroyed daily causing wildlife to be orphaned or killed. In states like Tawau, Sandakan and Lahad Datu, the forest is cleared to make way for oil palm cultivation. I agree that the economic reserves of the country need to be doubled, but, not by abusing the land indiscriminately.
Many of the extinct animals listed people did not know were Iowans. Blue Pike (Sander Vitreus Glaucus). Many of the Blue Pike fish lived in the Great Lakes as recently as the 1950’s. This fish was representing as much as 50% of the commercial catch out of Lake Erie. But, overfishing, pollution, and belated recovery efforts led to their extinction in 1976.
Fish and Wildlife has listed the Lynx as threatened in Colorado. (IUNC Red List, 2015). The reintroduction of the Canadian Lynx (Lynx canadensis) back into Colorado is important because the Lynx has the most southern historical natural population in the United States. (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) Not being able to keep that habitat border for this animal would be an unpleasant poke in the eye for the state that is suppose to be on the rise in environmental and ecological
The 14th Amendment right to equal protection as recognized under Baker v Carr designed on the surface to ensure fair participation in the democratic process, however, it is more so a check on the majority. As Baker v Carr introduces, the 14th Amendment does not cover all types of discrimination. For example, discrimination by the means of improper districting of a state, intentional or not, is not covered by the Constitution. However, what the 14th Amendment does do effectively is put a check on the majority will through rights. The majority rules and the only way to prevent this is through rights, which dictate what people are and are not allowed to do.
The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures (Hall, 2014). In the scenario, it is important to remember that the employer is a government entity and the Fourth Amendment was originally designed to limit government authority as it applies to unreasonable searches and seizures (Hall, 2014). You would not be able to make a strong argument that the government violated the Fourth Amendment in this scenario. The property, whether it is a laptop, cell phone, or tablet, belongs to the government. Government entities have policies that employees must read and sign specifically acknowledging there is no expectation of privacy on these devices owned by the government.
Georgios Kepertis Earth 102-6: Death of the Dinosaurs Paper 4: Permian-Triassic Extinction 12-7-2015 The Permian-Triassic Extinction Event: When Life on Earth Almost Ended An event that marked a great transition, an event so overwhelming that most creatures on Earth could not handle it; its power so immense that even plants and insects were almost eradicated from the face our planet. If it were to happen today, humans would most certainly be defenseless against the brute forces of nature, and even though it happened roughly 252 million years ago, it is still the most catastrophic period in time known to man. Colloquially known as the “Great Dying”, its scientific name is not quite as terrifying, “The Permian-Triassic Extinction Event”. As
