Another threat to the snow leopard is poaching. The leopards are hunted illegally for their pelts so that they can be made into luxurious fur coats and other items of clothing. The poachers aren’t always in it for the kill though; there are many collectors in Central Asia who almost die for a live snow leopard to
You can state that it is an opinion matter but there are such factsthat prove either way. “Zoos are an unsuitable environment for wild animals and should,therefore, be abolished. Firstly, zoo animals are kept in a very confined areacompared with their vast natural habitat. Secondly, breeding programmes are farless successful than zoos claim. Thirdly, zoo animals are exposed to manydiseases and other dangers.” ("Zoos Should be Banned.”) “No matterhow big some zoos try to make the enclosures, no matter how many branches theyput in them, no matter how beautiful they make the background paintings on thewall, they don't compare with the natural habitat the animals were meant to bein.
The Giant Panda has been of target for poaching since ancient times, they were a source of soft furs. Many people believed that the best way to protect the pandas was to cage them. As a result of this the pandas suffered from terrible conditions. Due to pollution and destruction of their natural habitat and segregation from caging the reproduction of Giant Pandas was severely limited. However in the 1990s several laws were made to help the chances of the Giant Pandas survival.
Mistaking its lack of fear for a lack of intelligence, the sailors called the bird the "dodo" from the Portuguese "doudou," meaning "simpleton." This fearlessness along with its inability to fly made the Dodo an extremely easy prey for humans. When humans first arrived on Mauritius, they introduced other animals, including dogs, pigs, cats, rats, and Crab-eating Macaques, which plundered the Dodo nests. At the same time, humans destroyed the Dodo's habitat forests; the impact these introduced animals, especially the pigs and macaques, had on the Dodo population is currently considered as more severe than the impact of hunting. The extinction was not immediately noticed, and some considered it a mythological creature until the 19th century, when research was conducted on surviving remains of four specimens brought to Europe in the 17th century.
Her strong support as an activist for Animal rights speak out immediately when the message on the blackboard showed up, “Animals should be seen and not heard.” Another example to her supportive action is, when a baby Lion Cub is brought to class in a cage after Dillamond’s removal from the University. Elphaba was not too happy about the idea of the Animals kept in cages and never speaking, so she rescued the Lion Cub and set him free. Later we will discover that the Lion Cub, was indeed the Cowardly Lion. Elphaba’s actions speak just as loudly as her words. Her first day at Shiz University with her disabled wheelchair bounded sister Nessarose, was very straightforward with the other students.
Going...going....going.... You know what comes next. If nothing is done the next word is going to describe tigers in the world, gone. However we can still stop this from happening if we can preserve these beautiful animals from going into extinction. One reason why tigers are going into extinction is because of their habitat. There domain covers every corner in India and are also located in forests in eastern and southern Asia.
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
No matter how much we may try to replicate their own habitat and surroundings in a zoo and it will never get to its full potential. Predators need to hunt and taking them from the ability to do so by taming, caging and drugging them is beyond cruel. A study in 2008 found that Asian elephants in European zoos have a maximum life span of just 18.9 years compared to 41.7 years for wild elephants in an Asian logging camp. We should just let nature take its course. Wild animals in zoos suffer unnecessarily.
Logging can also contribute to these problems. The reason why the population of Amur Leopards has been decreasing is because of hunting, loss of habitat, negative causes for inbreeding, development projects, and lack of protection. The lack of political commitment to conservation, meaning the people who are supposed to watch out for this endangered animal are not doing such a great job. And as you can tell, hunters and poachers are not allowed to kill this animal, but according to, Critically Endangered Amur Leopard Only 35 Left In Wild, in the year 2002 in Russia, nine Amur Leopard skins were found. Moreover, two were killed in China.
Some animals such as tiger and rare species of birds are forced to live their lives in small cages. These tigers are not able to hunt as they would if they were in the wild; this also goes for the birds who are made to live in small cages and unable to spread their wings and fly so that they can hunt. Some zoos claim that they are using these animals to help educate the public and they might be doing so but it is coming at a high price. These animals do not deserve to live in these conditions just because zoos want to educate
