After an outbreak of the plague devastated release sites in 1999, the ferret and prairie dog populations dropped significantly. The WWF provided aid in creating plague management, and in 2013 and 2014, 52 black footed ferrets were released onto a reservation (WWF). The loss of the black footed ferret would not have a large global affect, as it only resides in North American grasslands. Its loss would have a large affect locally because of the black footed ferrets’ influence in its habitat. Without the black footed ferret, the prairie dog population would be affected negatively.
Throughout the latter part of the 20th century, Pesticides started being used in agriculture and crop farming. The effects of these pesticides greatly hurt species in the United States. For example, some of these pesticides weakened egg shells of Americas iconic bird, the bald eagle and as a result, baby eagle eggs often cracked while they were still developing, killing the eagle. So congressmen went back into congress and amended the act of 1966 and in 1973, they created the Endangered Species Act of 1973. This act amended things that had been stated in the previous act of 1966.
According to The World Counts, “70% of our world’s plant and animal species live in forests,” and when deforestation happens, animals lose their habitats. When animals lose their habitat (Anadiplosis), they are not accustomed to their new surroundings and could potentially go extinct. Species depend on forests to survive and when the forests are cut down, the animals have nothing left. Forests are heavily depended on for resources and ways of life. The Pachamama Alliance Organization claims that, “the tropical rainforests of South America are responsible for 20% of earth’s oxygen.” This proves the earth relies greatly on forests and may suffer consequences because of the speedy rate trees are being cut
But was destroying it by putting lots of plants in the same area then it losses nutrition then they have to go to a new spot and do the same thing again and again. I also talked about how the ranchers destroyed the rainforest because cattle don’t belong in the rainforest and cattle eat grass and when they eat all the grass they move to a new spot and they have to cut down the trees to build a house and live there until the cattle has eaten all the grass and there's no more. The logger which cuts down lots of trees and losses animals homes. Last but not least the environmental groups, they try to save the rainforest because we destroyed it in the first
A lot of farmers hunt as a way to be able to protect their crops because animals will totally destroy a farmer’s crop. Wildlife really does not care what kind of crop it is, from hay for livestock to produce for the people; all they see is a source of food for their consumption. If the United States let the animal population grow out of control it would hurt everyone, because the wildlife would totally destroy the entire crop that farmers grow. With all these crops being destroyed people would not be able to find produce, feed for their livestock, and a lot of people would be out of work. Hunting also prevent unnecessary injures like car accidents, but others believe without hunting that there would be less of these injuries.
For example, if there were very sudden climatic conditions that were to change until the point where a species couldn’t survive in (e.g extreme temperatures), the population would decrease significantly and potentially be wiped out. A prime example of where genetic biodiversity was too small and as a result, was wiped out, is the Irish potato famine. The potato famine was caused by a fungus-like organism called ‘the potato blight’ (Phytophthora infestans) which was a disease that ravaged potato crops all throughout Europe as a result of the potato’s being genetically too similar. Almost all crops were unable to grow from 1845-1849 as their genetic makeup did not hold any resistance to this disease. Mammal cloning will reduce genetic biodiversity as it means that the exact same genetics are passed on to the next generation whereas natural breeding results in new genetic combinations.
In the article 5 Reasons to Bring Back Extinct Animals and 5 Reasons Not to, the author Breanna Draxler explains, “De-extinct species would be alien and potienally invasive; their habits and food sources have changed. So their in these changed ecosystems could be too” (2013). This means that if extinct species comes back, it would have new food sources and habits to adapt to. In the article De-Extinction Probably Not Worth It by Sarah Zielinski it states, “Then they would have to successfully re-introduce the species to the planet, taking care to find a place where the new-again species wouldn’t harm other animals and where the animal would be safe from whatever drove them extinct in the first place” (2017). This explains that if a species were to come back to the world scientists would have to re-introduce them to their habitats, their food sources, and other animals around them.
Kids should be able to make their own decisions and learn to make good choices. If schools just ban junk food from schools, they’ll never get to decide what they wanna do and that doesn’t help them learn anything. Schools should sell junk food in school so the students can choose to eat it or not. In conclusion, schools should sell junk food in schools. Although junk food is unhealthy, schools should be able to sell junk food.
After the storm in 1935 the people living in the affected area and the rest of the United States realised that removing all of the prairie grass wasn’t the best decision. The U.S. government decided to plant back some of the grass along with trees. Ever since there hasn’t been a storm even close to being as large in the United States. To help keep citizens and children out of the smog, but to also help reduce the smog the Chief Minister of Delhi issued emergency measures, including a 10 day closure of a power plant and a 3 day closure of around 1,800 public schools. Along with the emergency measures health guidelines issued about symptoms of the smog said that if you are feeling “breathlessness, giddiness, chest pain, and/or chest constriction” you should go to the hospital.
Forest fires have eaten away at wild life for years and will continue to run their course through the vastness of the United States, however the idea that humans should simply leave the forests alone to burn how they please is not a smart one.The United States Forest Service should continue thinning out forests and setting small fires to decrease the effect that these fires have on the nation. The fire that rushes through the nation when the weather gets dry and warm is not only destroying the forests, but is also destroying American homes. This year alone over five million acres of land have been destroyed by wildfires. Although that is a large amount of area, that number has decreased from the year before which spouts over nine million
