A remote island that has remained uninfluenced by humans is now on the verge of losing its wolf population due to genetic deformities. The island is called Isle Royale and its once abundant wolf inhabitants have now dwindled to three remaining wolves. This leaves many scientists and researchers with the question of what actions to take in order to save the wolves from extinction. After researching and gathering information, it is clear that the best way to save these wolves is for humans to immediately introduce more wolves to the island in order for the island to flourish, genetic variation to expand, and the number of wolf offspring to rise.
This is concluded in the autobiography "In Yosemite with John Muir" by Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt talked about the wildlife and nature. In the autobiography, Roosevelt shares the sensational experience he had at Yosemite. If the parks weren't protected then the future generation would miss out on the marvelous experience at Yosemite He said "The majestic trunks, beautiful in color and in symmetry, rose round us like the pillars of a mightier cathedra than ever was conceived...Hermit-thrushes sang beautifully in the evening and again, with a burst of wonderful music, at dawn."(Passage 2 paragraph 21) President Roosevelt also shares his thought on the camping trip "I shall always be glad that I was in the Yosemite with John Muir and the Yellowstone with John Burroughs."(Passage 2 paragraph 22)This shows the experience that many people wouldn't see if we didn't protect nature. As you can tell, wildlife is important to keep because it is a key role in daily
For throughout most of history the massive marshy wetlands, lakes, and rivers from Lake Okeechobee to the tip of the peninsula have been in perfect balance, but recent human-made problem are threatening the area to the point of destruction. Originally, the whole entire Everglades covered almost 3 million acres, but it is receding drastically 1,800 miles of canals and dams are breaking up with water pumps, and pump stations are diverting the natural flow to coastal towns. Because of this, the water level in the Everglades is disrupted. During the wet season, Floridians find themselves with too much water than they know what to do with. During the dry season, Floridians run low on water. Because of this, many native species are dying out.
The label “Indian” refers to a variety of different cultures (over 2000), with hundreds of different languages and different ways of living. Indians had long, dark hair, almond shaped eyes and bronze or tan skin. After the realization that America was not a part of Asia a examination began over how people got there. Joseph de Acosta said “Old World animals were presents in the Americas” (Faragher pg 5), humans must have crossed a land bridge with them.
Sadly, many Americans believe that losing the wolves would not be a bad thing for the prey’s sake, but in all reality losing the wolves would be devastating. One major thing that is present in all ecosystems, the place in which animals live, is a trophic cascade. A trophic cascade is explained in the essay as a “sequence of impacts down the food chain” (578). Hannibal gives the reader this example: “…In Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park … wolves were virtually wiped out in the 1920’s and reintroduced in the ‘90s. Since the wolves have come back, scientists have noted an unexpected improvement in many of the park’s degraded stream areas”
Since wolves were killed in the Yellowstone National Park, the populaces of elks and deer climbed drastically throughout the years. The negative impact was felt when the region was overpopulated by crowds of elks which munched on the glades with a specific end goal to survive. Because of overgrazing, timberlands were exposed and vegetation was eaten up. With the recuperation program, there will adjust again since these wolves are predators of elks and bringing them back will diminish overpopulation.
Theodore Roosevelt said “speak softly and carry a big stick” some people have no idea what he means by this quote, We never thought wolves would become as much of a problem until now. I believe the wolf population is happening right under our noses and we don't even know it yet. Even though the wolf numbers might not recover, wolves should be hunted because wolves are killing large numbers of deer and livestock and wolves are endangering humans and farmers.
Some of the problems created by an overpopulation of deer are, deer damaging yards and gardens and also farms as well. They also carry diseases and increase rapidly in areas such
Throughout history and across cultures woman have lived under the parameters of a patriarchal structure. Stories like Jamaica Kincaid’s “Girl” and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper,”, inspired by two cultures (Caribbean and American) and different eras (1983 andvers 1893) reflect women's struggle within this structure. A structure in which women have blazed a trail and have fought for a space, the freedom and the respect within their community (Fix this sentence – it is grammatically incomplete). Despite that women should accept and follow patterns of a pre-established prototype of behavior, that do not allow them to development their intellectual capacities, limiting their professional and social role to wife or housekeeper,
Hunting has been a part of our society since the first man set foot on this continent, but animal rights movements have become popular in our society recently that has questioned the necessity of hunting in our modern times. Because of this, animal populations are left freely to where they can multiply at an alarming rate. Hunting is a great means of controlling animal populations’ growth, although greatly opposed by many. While hunting is a very controversial topic in our society, there are great points for being for and against it.
The Bilby, before European settlement where widely spread over around 70% of the Australian mainland than reduced to extinction in some states of Australia due to habitat loss and competition and predation from many introduced species. Through many reintroduction programs across Australia there population has now raised.
Muir liked that Yellowstone National Park was created to protect the wildlife, and he wanted to help create more. In 1890, he helped create Yosemite National Park. He then helped established Sequoia, Mount Rainier, Petrified Forest, and Grand Canyon National Park. John’s book Our National Parks, a book showing what the national parks are like, and his ideas inspired Theodore Roosevelt to make conservation programs. One of his programs set aside two hundred-thirty million acres of land to mostly be preserved. Roosevelt did not agree with Muir that all of the land should be closed off for wildlife because of the resources. Eighty million acres of that land was planned to be used for resources, and the rest is national forest. Most of the resources being preserved were trees, and trees are mainly used to build homes. Some forests were preserved while others were harvested of trees. Then, when the forest would have low amounts of trees, the preserved forest and the harvested forest will switch roles. All of the national parks and conservation programs are still used
The wilderness is a great home for many different species of animals to inhabit. Such animals include polar bears, caribou, dall sheeps and wolves. It would be such a tragic that such a great habitat would be demolished. The Arctic National Refuge is a magnificent, and quoted, the last great wilderness. It has been mentioned that the wilderness will be consumed by "a web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities". The author uses ethos, logos, and pathos to construct and strengthen his argument, which is that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge should not be developed for industry.
Have you ever thought about which animals are near extinction or endangerment ? Have you looked them up? How many are left? Which ones have been removed? Do you know why they are going endangered? Have you heard what a dodo is? Well yeah it’s extinct. Do you know why? Do you know why it’s important to save an endangered animal?
Why are different species becoming extinct? Do researchers know how many innocent animals are killed each year? When will animals be protected in a comfortable habitat? In man-made environments, such as zoos and other nature parks, animals that are born in the wild are protected and well taken care of. Due to animals running around in the wild, scientists and researchers can track the amount of animals being killed everyday. This usually causes extinction within that species, and researchers have decided to do something about it. Although endangered animals are born in the wild, they should be sheltered and protected in nature parks because it helps decrease the amount of extinctions, allows a better and healthier environment, and the animals are protected from predators and human hunters.
