It is easy to see why this rainforest is so marveled upon. The Amazon rainforest is the most species-rich rainforest in the world, and makes up more than half of the remaining rainforests on the planet. However, with the increasing need for cattle pasture, farming space, and precious wood, deforestation has been devastating the Amazon. Deforestation is the removal of trees, where the left over land is changed for non-forest use. Although clearing trees in the Amazon provides economic benefits, the environmental effects are serious dangers to it’s ecosystem as well as species within it.
Deer hunting today is a major part of conserving our nation’s wildlife. With the large predatory mammal population nearly none existent, the life expectancy for deer is quite unnaturally long. These populations, if they are allowed to grow unchecked, could pose serious repercussions. Not only to agricultural areas, but also outlying urban areas and drivers will be affected too. Now a hunter’s role in our nation’s ecosystem is that of the primary predator of deer.
Another reason for cheetahs’ endangerment is the increased competition with other animals in their habitat. Among these animals are hyenas, leopards, lions and wild dogs. Lions, hyenas and wild dogs attack and kill cheetahs both for food and for game, while leopards only compete for the same food. While these animals are, for one reason or another, growing in number, the cheetah is declining in number and the result is dramatic. A predominant reason cheetahs are subject to extinction is their lack of genetic variation.
From an environmental perspective the Amazon is negatively affected from the burning of the trees which is polluting the biggest rainforest in the world with Carbon dioxide (Co2). Also, a lot of nutrients are being lost from deforestation and high quality soil is being wasted. Desertification is slowly happening in the Amazon and other rainforests. If deforestation continues the rainforests will start to lose bodies of water, as well as vegetation and wildlife. There are many problems that the rainforest biome encounters.
Several animals go crazy and many die prematurely due to their living conditions. Another issue that is caused from the over consumption of animal products is the worldwide disaster of deforestation. In 6 years alone Brazil lost an area of forest as large as Greece, and anywhere from 60 to 70% of this is due directly to cattle ranching. It has been estimated that the world’s forests could vanish in the next hundred years if all continues at the same pace. "hidden elements" in preprepared foods such as preservatives, colorings and of course things like palm oil which is a major source of deforestation.
Birds are a very important part of the national food web (Sayre 16). Pollution is very affective on wildlife. When sewage causes huge growths of algae, it uses of the oxygen in the water, ultimately killing the wild plants and fish that live there (Barton 7). Poverty and overpopulation are also huge threats to wildlife (Barton 20). Habitat alteration is the main factor in species endangerment throughout the world (Plant).The main reason birds are endangered is because of habitat loss.
Tragic Saga of ‘Wildlife Loss’ on our Planet The earth is losing an unprecedented amount of animal habitat from last few years. The scientists say they our planet is experiencing a fatal period of animal loss that will get more worsen in near future with thousands of species will get extinct. We can now foresee that the majority of wildlife on earth has never been and will never be known to us. When we hear of extinction, most of us think about the tigers, lions, elephants and whales etc. But these are only small pieces of the extinction puzzle the planet is miffed with.
There domain covers every corner in India and are also located in forests in eastern and southern Asia. These forests are running out for the necessary needs for the tigers which include prey and water. Another reason why tigers are going into extinction is because they are threatened. This is caused by getting killed by hunters, driven out of their habitat by farmers, being shot for sport, killed for their skins and body parts and some body parts are being used for Chinese medicine. The reason for this is because of people competing with them for food, their main prey, deer are disappearing from forests, also human population has risen and protected areas have been turned over to farmers, protected areas have also been flooded by dams or distributed coal mines and also numbers have fallen because they have been killed so that their bones and other parts could be smuggled out of India to their supply manufacturers of Chinese medicines.
Other times it’s our actions and our choices that don’t allow plants and animals to survive. Half of the rain forest has been completely wiped out, the animals’ homes are gone forever and that’s a huge threat to wildlife. We are chopping down the forest for cheap wood, so we can build houses and what not. Are humans really that selfish? Destroying something that an animal once lived in so we can have wood?
The animals and birds drinking such water face a fatal threat. Even the population of fish, living in such water bodies, is declining at a fast pace. * The climate changes taking place in the world today, are affecting not only humans, but also the wildlife. The natural habitat as well as migration patterns of the animals and birds is experiencing disturb patterns. * Last but not the least, the threat of poaching has been haunting the wildlife of India since ages.
