Identify two ways that Humans may effect the environment may live in? Humans are the biggest threat to the species. Encroachment along forest fringes, indiscriminate logging and hunting the mammals for meat are taking a toll on monkey habitat and extant numbers. Evaluate how well your chosen animal is being cared for by humans. Do you think we are caring for this animal as God would have us care for them?
Agricultural Threats to The Lemurs of Madagascar A Review Daubentonia madagascariensis, most commonly known as the Aye-Aye, is a small lemur that is endemic to the island of Madagascar (Andrainarivo et al. 2008). It is the world’s largest nocturnal primate and its habitat depends strongly of the presence of the seeds of ramy (Canarium spp. ), its primary food source. Aye-Ayes are arboreal, and often solitary primates, although males and females can have overlapping home ranges.
The location of this home for the pygmy possum was made difficult for breeding of these animals. The segregation of the habitat for female and male pygmy possums has resulted in the males having to travel through the resorts and homes of the tourist and even out in the open, this makes them vulnerable to feral animals such as foxes and
I will now write about the fun facts and tell you about my observations. Chimpanzees are currently on the endangered species list, which I find very unfortunate. Populations have decreased because of foresting, hunting, commercial exportation, and collection for scientific research. Although chimpanzees are protected in 34 national parks and reserves, laws can be difficult to enforce in remote regions. Chimpanzees can be found all over Africa, from Senegal and Gambia to Uganda and Tanzania.
Bio 100 Homework due 11/05/12 Name : Nicholas Oliveira Go to the website on cheetah conservation www.Cheetah.org and read the following sections under the tabs About Cheetahs: Intro, Genetic Diversity, & Race for Survival 1. Why are cheetahs endangered? Our attitudes and misconceptions about these species have led to their endangerment because many people deal with their fear by eliminating predators. 2. What are the 5 most common causes of extinction?
The two most destructive threats they pose are to the existence of the native Red Squirrel and the health of woodlands that define the nation (Huxley 2003). Grey squirrels are outcompeting the red squirrel for food and shelter, making it very difficult for the red squirrel to continue to flourish and reproduce in their native ecosystem (Wauters et al. 2001). As a result, their population is decreasing due to lack of nourishment and sustainable shelter. Grey squirrels are also common carriers of the pox virus, which is nonhazardous to them, but deadly to the red squirrel (Williams et al.
Insofar as I can make-out, people are uncomfortable to know how animals die and to assume such a responsibility. When I've showed people videos of --seemingly credible-- factory farm footage they either react in two different ways: (1) either they quiver-away or plea me to turn it off (2) or they uncomfortably scoff at how ridiculously cynical it all is. Albeit, appalled, this doesn't generally discourage people to stop eating meat altogether. They simply look past it when they go-off and buy animal-based products. The fact of the matter is that the animal products we buy are the source of considerable pain and cruelty.
(killerwhale.org) Furthermore, they have concluded that any scientific study of orcas would be best done in their natural habitat verse aquariums. Multiple factors would affect their behaviors and many concerns have been brought to peoples attention about the effects orcas face by leaving the wild. One concern for orcas that are born in the wild then taken into captivity is that they live in pods, and their families operate much as if a human family would, with strong attachments and emotions. Tearing these creatures away from their family members has much to do with the psychological effect on them. Several incidents have been reported over the past years that make people question the continued captivity of orcas.
There are a group of people who believe humans view animals as property and mistreat them due to their lack of intelligence. But there is also a group who use animals as a way of life and appreciate their contributions to the world’s ecosystem. This group looks at the human behaviors towards animals, and animal’s level of emotion, and the contradiction towards the treatment of animals. When debating the topic about animals first we will talk about human behaviors and thoughts towards animals. In the essay “Why I Hunt” by Rick Bass, the author talks about how the love of hunting and the landscape nourish his soul.
Some group members used numbers and facts to make sense and sound credible for their individual roles. The abolishment of the amazon is morally wrong and this applies to ethos because deforestation has many adverse effects to many things. Josh and Kelli used ethos and pathos and talked about how animals and people are affected by deforestation. In the essay the usage of pathos was used when describing the destruction of animal habitats along with the eventual extinction of some of these beautiful
