If we didn’t save the endangered species , the balance in the ecosystem will be affect. Issue from the selected topic Starting from the industrialization of human society , a huge amount of the animal species and plant species are being threatened by the human. People around are putting effort in saving the endangered animal but are given limited resource. In my opinion we should save all the endangered gene in a gene bank so that we would be able se the animal in the future. Habitat loss is by far the most widespread cause of species endangerment.
According to the article “Adaptive Management to Protect Biodiversity: Best Available Science and the Endangered Species Act” Green & Garmestani (2012), Human have increased species extinction rate 1,000 times by many activities. About 10%-30% animals face extinction in the Earth, human also increase the climate change to influence the rate of extinction (para. 1). Many species are facing extinction problem in the world, which is a serious problem for the ecosystem, and can make the contact between human and nature be broken. People should protect endangered species in some complementary ways.
The most common example of overharvesting is fishing. Many fishing companies over fish so that their income is larger. Over fishing has played an important role in the extinction of many species. The unsustainable extraction of species had three main problems – too many people want the resource, the short term profit goals and life histories of populations being harvested. (Grobeman, 2013) Pollution from humans has also greatly impacted the environment.
How can we help to prevent habitat destruction? Global perspective As the world is evolving, it is becoming overpopulated, which causes many problems such as habitat destruction. Nowadays, humans give more priority to industries that focus on helping the world develop such as fashion and technology. People are unaware of and thus underestimate the consequences of damaging the environment -also known as habitat destruction. However, these consequences do not only apply to animals but also in human life.
The general idea of conservation is to help keep a species of animals around for as long as we can, so killing the animals we are trying to conserve does not sound like the smartest idea. However, the data has frequently shown that, when done in a controlled manner, hunting can be a great tool for supporting conservation. It can be beneficial through supplying funds directly to conservation causes, through economic impact and by creating pressure to preserve habitat. With the continuing pressures that humans place on wildlife, the conservation of that wildlife for future generations has become an important issue. As the human population continues to grow and encroach on wild areas, wildlife has had fewer and fewer places to live in.
Poaching has killed off thousands of rhinos, and the numbers keep growing (https://www.savetherhino.org/rhino_info/rhino_population_figures). Although it is proven that rhino horn has no medicinal value, the high demand in rhinoceros horn is mainly caused by the myth that rhino horn can cure cancer and hangovers . In Asia, 70% percent of people believe that rhino horn is rhino teeth that fall out and grow back. This idea is encouraged by sellers so they can sell more horn (Olstein, pg 33). Also, poachers are poaching more rhinose because the price has skyrocketed to 100,000 dollars a kg.
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.
Since humans started to inhabit the earth and proceeded to dominate, there has been conflict between our species and the wild animals that we share our biosphere with. Many animals have become domesticated to fit around our way of life; however, it is the wild animals that mesmerise us while also posing the most significant threat. This essay will aim to discuss the ‘human-animal conflict’ and what methods are being put in place to minimise the encounters and risks associated with wild animals and human populations. Located in the Terai Arc Landscape in Nepal and India there is a crucial national park that supports more than 100 tigers. The Chitwan National Park (CNP) provides substantial habitat and resources for Panthera tigris to thrive within the park; this abundance of P. tigris has led to human-tiger conflict and stands to reverse the effects of tiger conservation by reduced support from the human inhabitants of the area.
Plus, we could make some species less capable of catching some viruses and diseases. As well as, how scientist can now see the ancient animals changed the Earth. Many people are worried about if the animals would be invasive or how they would react; humans adjust so why couldn’t animals? Due to humans, activities such as deforestation and poaching continue to cause extreme ecosystem and environmental problems. Humans are the cause of many animals going extinct and if you think about it we owe the animals.
But that is not the case, increasing fishing efforts over the last fifty years as well as unjustifiable fishing practices are pushing many fish stocks to the point of extinction. Millions upon millions of people rely on fish for protein, and fishing is so much of the livelihood for millions of people around the world (overfishing). There are a lot of recreational fishermen that complain about the laws we have in place to protect fish, such as a size requirement and limit per day. These laws are put in place by the state to help prevent a species from being over fished. The definition of over fishing is to deplete the number of fish in a body of water by too much fishing.
