David Andrews, Everglades National Park director states, “this program is what has paid for all of the pythons to be removed from the Everglades National Park area. Without the funding, the pythons would continue to over populate and decrease the mammal population even further. It would also allow the pythons to continue preying on the endangered species in the area until they could possibly become extinct.” Scientist are especially worried about the overpopulation of these snakes because of the diminishing population of animals. All of which led to the decrease of native trees, plants and fish-eating birds. It is also feared by local officials that it is only a matter of time before the snakes harm a visitor at the Everglades National Park.
Not only serious, but cruel and unnecessary. Every day, the number of animal casualties continue to escalate while the remaining population dwindles down to extinction. It's easy to dismiss this since we don't directly rely on some of these organisms. However, all aspects of the environment are connected in one way or another. An extinction of one species could threaten many other populations.
Worth billions of dollars every year, promptly following drugs, firearms, and human trafficking, animal poaching is the illegal act of slaughtering or capturing animals. Due to the approximated tens of millions of animals being poached for their fur, shells, horns, etcetera, there is a rapid decline in population, causing a myriad of species to confront endangerment and possible extinction. Furthermore, some of the most at risk animals include, but are not limited to, sea turtles, elephants, tigers, rhinoceroses, lemurs, and gorillas. This illicit trade is mainly generated by human avarice, the belief that some animal parts possess medicinal properties, and the lack of other livelihood opportunities. To place an approximated price on these
This is very abrupt since Red Pandas are protected in China, India, Bhutan, and Nepal. They are victim to habitat loss from deforestation or humans’ clear-cutting of their nature ecosystem. You’d think that we would stop clear-cutting their ecosystem after we learnt that they are endangered, however their natural ecosystem is still diminishing as more of their ecosystem is lost to logging and to the ecosystems’ alteration to agroecosystems. Habitat loss and fragmentation are causing the loss of red panda nesting trees and bamboo that the red panda consumes. Logging and other forms of ecosystem damages have caused a disruption or disturbance in the equilibrium of the ecosystem and have given an advantage to the seasonal monsoon; allowing it to hurl rich soil down mountainsides.
Australia is home to diverse fauna and flora, many of them are on the brink of extinction. Unfortunately, Orange-bellied parrots is one of them, it’s time for Aussie to start saving these beautiful creatures. The Orange-bellied Parrots Many of the Victorian animals are under extreme threats due to human over exploration, a lot of these lovely, harmless animals are on the way to extinction or it has already extinct in the wild. The orange-bellied parrots (Neophema chrysogaster, under the family of Psittacidae) are now critically endangered and listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. Neophema chrysogaster is named after their unique orange feathers around its belly, it also has cute little beaks that
Predators have become a colossal problem lowering duck populations and overall nest success and recruitment. With the decline of apex predators such as wolves and coyotes predators such as Red Fox, raccoons and skunks have been able to run rampant and destroy duck populations altogether. The use of predator corridors or the congregation of predators in areas with large duck numbers began to become more prevalent. Nests need to have at least 15% nest success to maintain a minimum number of ducks within the population. That number is hard to maintain when Red Fox are annually killing 900,000 adult ducks within that of the breeding grounds.
This is what the forest could look like because pandas are on the endangered species list. Due to the deforestation is causing panda bear population to shrink. The panda bear population use to be huge but now is shrinking. now and then are very different. The giant panda was once widespread throughout southern and eastern China, as well as neighbouring Myanmar and northern Vietnam but due to expanding human populations and development, the species is now restricted to around 20 isolated patches of bamboo.
This may not seem like such a huge ordeal, but when the person feeding the birds does not feed them any longer, they will not know how to get food from the wild. Birds get fed by people all around the world and if they are not able to feed them for a little while, they will die. Let us think about it if you had been fed your whole life by your
Poaching can be considered as illegal selling and trading of animals by killing them for only one part such as an ivory tusk, pelt, or bones or selling them as a whole for a huge sum of money. The vast majority of poaching is due to organized crime to kill and track many animals all at one time without being detected. At these current poaching rates, elephants, rhinos, and other iconic African wildlife will be gone within our lifetime before we know it. Many of Africa’s wild animals have suffered from a massive population decline due to poaching over the past three decades. I personally believe that the animals should be able to
The number of animals is from 2 – 50 million. Yes, there’s less animals than there are of humans, but what if both animals and humans were to decrease, you may ask? Well, the Circle of Life is one thing, but to have both animals and humans die at the exact time is dangerously crucial. It’s dangerously crucial because there are 16,306 endangered species threatened with extinction, according to www.endangeredearth.com. If those endangered species die out, in addition to our everyday North American Species of birds and mammals, then we have no chance of survival due to BPA still existing.
