Title : Animal in Extinction

SubTopic : Why the animal under verge of extinction

Introduction

In bucked the trend towards modernization and progress, we increasingly forget that not only human beings that inhabit this universe. Ever forget the existence of human animals and the environment so that most of us have succumbed to the demands of modernization and progress. Humans have killed the flora and fauna around us to make way for development.
Implications as we see now, many fauna species that are being threatened by extinction. More and more animals without realizing next dwindling and disappear from the earth. Do we just need to try to help save animals threatened with extinction without knowing what causes that led to the extinct. Below is the factor why animal is under verge of extinction.

Body 1

Firstly, change and habitat destruction by human activities is a major cause of animal extinctions. Changed or degraded habitat through several processes such as logging, swamps dried, sea cliffs reclaimed, rivers constrained to make dams, forest areas are opened up for agriculture and settlements and pollution occur due to certain activities. The impact of this change and habitat destruction sometimes cannot be discovered in a short time. Sometimes this effect does not occur directly but it correlates and can destroy several animal species after going through a long period of time.

Opening certain forest areas for example may break and minimize habitat animals such as tigers and elephants in need of a large and spacious area to get food, shelter and breeding. Small habitat has complicated these animals to compete for food and reduce the reliability of finding a mate for breeding purposes. Both of these things can cause the death of animals and reduce the number. For an example Sumatera Rhino had decrease in number because of hard to find the mate for breeding purpose, this had cause the number of Sumatera Rhino always

    Humans are making the lives of animals harder and easier. Our expansion can interfere with species native to an area, forcing that species to to die out, leave, or change. Overhunting can hit a species hard because it gives little time to react. Although some can. For example, some elephants, valued for their ivory tusks, have started to produce offspring without tusks. These as a result are ignored by hunters. Overfishing is a big problem, as fisherman do not simply want a certain part of the fish. The biodiversity in freshwater habitats has declined by fifty percent in the last thirty…

    There are currently only 30 individual Amur leopards left in the world, the hawksbill turtle has been deemed “critically endangered”, the black-footed ferret who was once thought to be globally extinct has only a population of 1000, the black rhino was said to be “doomed to disappear from the face of the earth” in 1961, and the Saola deer has an estimated population of a few hundred at a maximum, or possibly only a few dozen at a minimum. There are many more animals who are endangered, some who are even worse off than the ones I mentioned. If we continue to abuse our power and ignore the plight of these endangered species, one day even common animals like cows or frogs will be hard to come by. These beautiful creatures are extremely important to our eco-system and food-chain and need desperately to be preserved. If we continue to refuse to acknowledge this and disregard the issue intentionally, our ecosystems will begin to collapse and we will no longer have the variety we currently do of food, medicine, animals and thousands of products will not be available to us because so many companies use materials that contain animal by-products. Also, I will give you more insight on what it means to be endangered as well as give some examples of animals who are.…

    Wildlife is greatly impacted by habitat loss. Animals are the biggest victims from habitat loss as it is their homes and sometimes food scores being destroyed and they are then forced to go and find somewhere else to live, which in most cases they cannot do because they have evolved and grown to be suited to their specific environment. The platypus is an example because over the years it has become vulnerable due to habitat loss caused by man.…

    Mass Extinction

    • 1410 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Extinction is the end of an organism or group of taxa. Extinctions occur when a species becomes unfit for survival in its natural habitat usually to be replaced by another, better-suited species. An organism becomes ill-suited for survival because its environment is changed or because its relationship to other organisms is altered as stated from Credo Reference. The moment of extinction is generally considered to be the death of the last individual of that particular species. Mass extinctions, however, are rare events that only happen every few million years. Only recently have these events been recorded and scientist have become alarmed at these recent extinctions. Most extinctions aren’t even documented and some predict that most of present species will be gone by the year 2100. Many scientist seek to find out what causes mass extinctions, the consequences of these events, and if another extinction in the near future.…

    Biology Extinction

    In biology and ecology, extinction is the end of an organism or of a group of organisms (taxon), normally a species. The moment of extinction is generally considered to be the death of the last individual of the species, although the capacity to breed and recover may have been lost before this point. Because a species' potential range may be very large, determining this moment is difficult, and is usually done retrospectively. This difficulty leads to phenomena such as Lazarus taxa, where a species presumed extinct abruptly "re-appears" (typically in the fossil record) after a period of apparent absence.…

    Extinction is the ceasing of a species to exist on this Earth. A species officially becomes extinct when all of the species no longer exists. A species is to become certainly extinct when there is an extremely small number of it and it is unable to reproduce to create more of itself. Therefore, we say a species is in for certain extinction if it cannot reproduce itself.…
