We only have five species remaining in the world today, and all of them are endangered. The Southern white rhinos were once found in large numbers across Southern Africa. They have horns and thick skin to protect themselves against predators like the lion and the hyena. But today, their biggest threat and enemy, is the human. This problem has become more public in the last two years and has drawn a lot of attention, which has resulted in international documentaries trying to raise awareness and support for these majestic creatures.
However the Snow Leopard does compete with hunters who illegally hunt them for the selling’s of their organs. Over Population The Snow Leopard is expected to soon become extinct, and yes there are other species such as some of their small prey seeming to be overpopulating the area. The bunnies are said to be mass producing over in their habitat but only because of how quick bunnies and hare are at reproduction. On the other hand the larger prey are said to never be a problem of over population at this point because the snow leopard feed off them daily and because they don’t have a high
Predators such as wolves and cougars naturally keep the deer population in check, but in places where these animals have left or died out hunters feel that they become the necessary predators. Regulating the deer population supposedly prevents human/deer conflicts such as car accidents caused by deer on the road. Deer hunters step into the natural food chain in an attempt to regulate the deer population in terms of the modern unnatural world. These premises might make sense if it weren’t for several crucial flaws. The first, and probably the most important, problem with this argument is that the general objective of hunters is to get a buck and not a doe.
The Parlotones drummer Neil Pauw has decided to donate a painting to raise funds for tracker dogs to assist with Anti Rhino poaching. “I was inspired to create the painting when I was at Sun City.” “It was at the golf challenge and there was a Rhino force stand with horrific pictures of slaughtered Rhinos. I felt that I needed to do something to try and fight this horrible and unnecessary act of insanity. I designed and painted the painting to be auctioned off so that all proceeds can go towards the fight against Rhino poaching. It is an abstract acrylic painting of a white and a black Rhino.
To me it’s a past time, an adrenalin rush, as well as a way to put extra food on the table. Deer hunting is a way to get in touch with true nature; it has been a way for people to provide food for their families for hundreds of years. Also deer are magnificent creatures and it’s amazing that they can be found all over the world. The cave drawings in the Chauvet Cave show a couple of horses looking in one direction and below the horses two rhinos fighting. They might have drawn rhinos because they are powerful animals and horses because they where a way of travel.
Due to aggressive poaching operations in South Africa over the past five years, the species of the Rhinoceros has radically grown to become threatened to being critically endangered. I am extremely passionate about all animals and the conservation of them on this planet. More specifically the Rhino’s and the threat at which they have come under in the more recent years as poaching continues to become more and more of a problem in the Eastern hemisphere. There are five species of Rhinos, two of which are African and three that are Asian. The African species are the white and black Rhinos and the Asian Rhinos include the Indian, Javan, and the Sumatran Rhino (1).
Poaching for Endangered Species: Reasons behind it. The occurrence of poaching for endangered species is still happening because of irresponsible people who still demands for product made from endangered animals. In addition, the market value for these animals products are also high which then goes to another reason they are hunted, greeds building up in the mind of the poachers and the wildlife rangers that results to bribery. Endangered species are groups of animal that are protected by law. There are several laws that have been adopted to regulate the import, export, and sale of wildlife.
Poaching: A Heavy Burden on Africa Africa is home to the planet’s most iconic and charismatic wildlife, ranging from the enormous gray elephants to the majestic golden lions and the elusive spotted leopards. People around the world know these creatures and have affection for them, but what many ignore is the huge threat that is looming for these animal species. This threat, commonly called poaching, “is the illegal harvesting of animals through capturing, catching, hunting, or killing” (“Poaching”). Over the last decades and especially from 2000 onwards, acts of poaching have skyrocketed, leaving the populations of African wildlife in a critical situation. Much debate has arisen on whether this poaching issue should be tackled through prohibition,
The illegal trade of live animals 1- The problems and issues with the illegal trade of live animals. 2- Explanation of why the problem or issue continues 3- What groups or organsations who are trying to help and what are they doing to help prevent/stop the illegal trade of animals. 4- Information about what individual people can do to help. The illegal trade of live animals, also known as the ‘Wildlife black-market’ is a multi-billionaire business that captures wild animals from their natural habitat and ships them around the county or world, for money or other items that is needed such as food, tools etc. Hundreds of millions of animals every year are being taken from their natural habitat to be sold illegally.
If a doctor wants to use animals for research they have to prove that the harm of the animal equals the benefit it will give the human, also, through legislation all lab animals must be protected form cruelty of mistreatment. In addition, millions of animals are killed each year for food, does this benefit humans to the extent that animal research for life saving cures does? Surely medical research on animals is a more worthy cause of death. This is another reason why people are pro- animal testing. God made man in charge of animals and to rule over them, “rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every other living creature that moves on the ground” Many Christians do not have an issue with eating animals, as they believe that god made animals for humans to eat.
