How do individual lands promote animal conservation?
In the case of surviving, each species needs proper shelter, water, opportunities to reproduce, space and food. In the United States or anywhere around the world, environmental destruction or change is a primary threat to all survival species. In the absence of habitat, the species will ultimately face extinction. So, provide a suitable environment to the survival is the main thing we can do. Fluidiam does its best and also invite others to do so. Like national park services, public lands, we can also provide suitable habitat. This will not only the act of humanity but will also become a picnic place or visitor’s place.
Other threats to the animals
Habitat is not the only threat to the wildlife. Oil spills, PCBS, chemicals proliferation are other major threats. If humans manage these things properly, then we don’t think so that habitat or species will in danger. Climate change is also becoming the most dangerous threat to the species. So, Animals need help!
Let’s Join the Hands and save animal’s Lives
A kind heart person will automatically save the other’s lives. Following are the ways, how can anybody promote animal conservation activities and save their lives;
- Avoid taking part in the sport like hunting
- Contact and write your lawmaker to express your support for acts or laws that protect habitat and wild animals.
- Study about invasive species, it includes both animals and plant and plays your part by stopping them from the spread.
- Try to reduce, recycle and reuse to protect wildlife environment, in or around the US and UK.
- Adopt an animal and take good care of it
- Talk with your community to take part in wildlife-saving activities
- Communicate about animal conservation and protection in seminars, parties, meeting or any kind of gathering
An endangered species is an animal or a plant that’s considered at extinction risk. These plans or species are declared and listed as endangered by federal or state at international level. On the federal level, every country has its own regulations for endangered species but almost all have the same objectives with different wording. The ESA act was endorsed by Congress in 1973. Under this ESA act, the government and authorities have the responsibility to protect threatened species (species that become in danger in coming days or future), endangered species (species that become extinct) and habitat from all over their range.
Why do we need to save endangered animal’s life?
It’s just like, why we need food? Why we need shelter? Or why we need better living standards? Animals are the most important part of nature. To save their lives and habitat, it is very important to follow the endangered species’ act. Because, directly or indirectly these act saves plants, native fish, or other animals. Losing even a single species can create disastrous impacts. That is why saving and protect endangered animals’ lives is the most important thing.
Facts, Why animal needs protection?
Animals and plants have different life events that apparently occurs during the whole year. These events include, mammals hibernate, bird’s migration, leaves change their colour throughout the year and flower blossom. Study of these technical terms is known as phenology. The climate is changing because of non-biological aspects like precipitation, available sunlight, and temperature. Because of this change, species face various issues. Species, that fail to handle the environmental change (natural or created) listed as endangered species, that’s why they need protection. So, the federal government follows the rules to save them.
Bioaccumulation and food webs affect indirectly
Energy is transferred from one species to another through a mature process. In case, when an animal eats their prey (plant or another animal) they eat more than their energy and expectations. According to them, they just eat food, while they also absorb all nutrients and chemicals inside their prey. These chemicals and nutrients become stored in tissues and fats. This all is done by the humans through oil, heavy metals, pharmaceutical and industrial chemicals to the environment. Animals, plants and other species absorb these toxins in tissues from the air. As the food web chain, it moves from one species to another. These toxins become stronger and stronger from one to another. The procedure that causes the concentration of a stuff increase as it moves up the chain or food web is named as bioaccumulation.
Natural disturbance effect directly
An event that creates a disruption to the running ecosystem is a natural disturbance. After fires, flood or earthquakes, animals suffer more than humans. These natural disasters affect directly. It is confirmed that not all disturbances are natural, human actions and efforts are also involving in these disturbances which cause the species to suffer.
Flyways and Corridors
Animals are always on the move, sometimes they change living place, mostly hunger forces them to move. In that case, humans can provide them wildlife corridors (e.g. parks, rivers, and refuges). In these corridors, animals will have a better and healthy opportunity to get the food.
