More than 30 million people including the indigenous people count on the forest for food, agriculture, clothing, and traditional medicines (Amazon). The truth is that some of the indigenous tribes in South America will go extinct along with their unique language due to deforestation. The amazon is home to some of the most stunning animals such as, the gorilla, jaguar, pink dolphin, the macaw, and many others. Deforestation of the amazon is annihilating the homes of these marvelous creatures. Animal habitats are also being destroyed or altered due to deforestation.
in weight. It’s coat is long, coarse; mostly brown and buff colored on the upper part of the body with some black along the backs. The red wolf’s diet consists mostly of small mammals, such as rabbits and rodents. The red wolf ranges throughout the southeast as far west as Texas. Aggressive predator control programs and clearing of forested habitat reduced the red wolf population to 17 wolves by 1980.
Firstly, the Everglades are an important ecosystem which reduces flooding and replenish aquifers but human actions are having a huge impact on the landscape. The rapid urban and agricultural development in the area has decreased the size of the wetlands dramatically which affects the organisms found there. This is especially important as it is home to several endangered species. Not only that, but invasive species that threaten existing wildlife by preying on or competing with them. According to Everglades.org, they’ve “contributed to nearly 70 percent of extinctions in the United States” and are the “primary cause of species endangerment.” The water itself is a major cause of decline to the area, firstly because of poor water management leading to water levels being too low or too high at the wrong times has caused a decline in many species.
Ecologist have yet to anticipate the long-term effect of Coyotes to White Tail Deer. Even though the Coyotes have affect native species, they have also wreaked havoc on the livestock and local animals part of Maryland. Pets make easy prey for Coyotes in the suburbs.They’re known to prey on domesticated dogs and cats, since their introduction to the Eastern Shore the feral cat’s population has dwindled rapidly. The other culturally representation is their mark on livestock. In my interview with Mr.Bankhead he informed me of the impact Coyote’s have made to his head, for him they’re a major issue just like many other farmers on the Eastern Shore.
Surrounded by people, they are on the verge of the extinction because of extensive human expansion. There are two major reasons why the Mountain gorillas have become endangered animals: habitat loss and poaching. One of the causes to the Mountain gorilla population is poaching. Beginning early in the twentieth century, collectors and hunters from Europe and the United States began to capture or kill the Mountain gorillas for food, medicine, and trophies. Now, they continue to die from shots of the poachers.
Issues such as habitat loss, grazing, tourism, threatened native species, feral animals in the Mount Kosciuszko. The reasons for this dramatic decline in Human-induced modification and natural induced. Early generations of grazing and practices such as deforestation have also played a major role in the ecological disaster that is the Mount Kosciuszko. (Map of Mount Kosciuszko) Mount Kosciuszko is incredibly diverse weathering many different ecosystems, forests, , mountain ranges. The Mount Kosciuszko supports a significant portion of Australia’s biodiversity including species of flora and fauna found only within the Mount Kosciuszko; pygmy possum, broad tooth rat and the spotted tail quoll.
Many areas of the taiga have been harvested for wood. Only eight percent of the taiga biome regions are protected from development in Russia and Canada. Removing large numbers of trees requires loud, large equipment that pollutes the area and endangers wildlife by removing homes and vegetation from animals. Another problem that has emerged in recent years have been insect plagues including the Spruce bark beetle and the Aspen leaf miner. Animals are also being endangered by hunting, pollution and logging and some less important
The swift fox had also been the unintentional victim of trapping and poisoning operations aimed at other mammals such as wolves and coyotes. In 2001, there were only a staggering amount of 600 swift foxes left in Canada (Hinterland Who’s Who). The strongest force that is the cause of habitat destruction is human beings. Humans destroy habitats for many different reasons. In industrial countries, they destroy habitats in order to maintain their standard of living.
Barn Owls swallow their prey whole and regurgitates black pellets typically about the size of your thumb. The pellets of the nights feeding, which cannot be digested by the Owl, are the bones, fur and hair. Thousands of owl pellets have been analyzed which gives us a lot of information on their diet, according to Barn Owl Trust in UK. In the UK the most frequently taken prey is the field vole which is 40% and 80% of the diet. Field mouse, wood mouse or common shrew, is the second most frequently prey is the brown rat that is when the body weights of the various prey are considered.
Testimony: Their owners "really love these animals but they're loving them to death," says Tim Harrison, director of Outreach For Animals, a rescue operation in Dayton, Ohio. (Guarino, 2011, Oct 20) 5. Document: To meet the demands of those who keep exotic animals as pets, dealers often have to take the animals from their native lands. This disrupts the ecosystems from which they are stolen, and can disrupt the ecosystems to which they are taken if they escape
