The latest proposal by the Center for Biological Diversity would scrap many of the Recovery Plans for 200 Endangered Species.
If the current Administration’s proposals are not enacted the result will be dire for many species. Not long ago, a news report stated;” biologists are stunned at the non-sequitur from the decision. There was an enormous push to get a massive bill passed providing money for tribes and sport fishing and other agencies to help recover animal species.” Apparently, if this latest proposal becomes law, it will not be long before more species will be gone. However, this does not mean that we should stop trying to save these wonderful species.
The fact is that the not much has been done to prevent this. Because, unfortunately, much of this fault rests with the previous generations.
This is not the first time that the Coalition for Sustainable Wilderness policy has attempted to eliminate all conservation relief. There was a time when there was attempts to eliminate over two-thirds of the Wilderness Act funding. It is interesting that after this latest proposal; nothing has been done to help tribes, and local communities recover such funds for their local parks and recreation departments.
They would lose business without this money so why work so hard on eliminating these programs?
For some odd reason the move is to dramatically cut these programs. This includes not just the Recovery Program for endangered species, but potentially the National Parks Service, the Antiquities Service, and the Endangered Species Act.
As if that’s not enough, some of these groups would like to gut the National Parks Act as well. They claim that it is an excessive government intrusion into private lives; however, I am sure that there are many Americans who live in the country and visit the parks on a regular basis who disagree. In any case, I’m sure that this debate is likely to continue for quite some time because there are so many issues and concerns that need to be addressed.
The latest issue of Trends in Genomics and Population Biology magazine reports that the number of species of animals in danger of extinction continues to increase at a rapid rate. In many cases, this represents a rate much faster than previously thought. Estimates have indicated that up to 200 new species of animals are threatened with extinction every year, many of which are not yet known. This is particularly worrisome when you consider that up to half of the Earth’s wildlife population is considered endangered.
The first species to come to mind when one considers recent declines is a certain breed of wolf. It has seen a dramatic decline over the last few decades. Wolves are unique among mammals in that they have survived and thrived throughout much of the history of mankind’s species. In recent years, however, they have seen a dramatic decline in their numbers. This has led to a drastic reduction in their numbers across most of their range in both Europe and Asia.
Second species in some danger is the Asian Bee Fly. The recent discovery of tens of thousands of bee flies with a deadly sting ability has led to an increase in stings experienced by humans. Millions of bees have been depleted and reducing their numbers can potentially be putting many other species at risk. The rapid reduction of the bee populations has prompted efforts to breed these insects in captivity, with hopes of increasing their numbers again. While this appears to be working to a certain extent, there is still no definite way to reverse the death and extirpation of this species.
One third of all migratory birds have been identified as having suffered in recent decades. Many migratory birds have gone extinct due to habitat loss, becoming a cause for concern for conservationists. In addition to birds, another group of animals that have been hit hard by recent environmental changes are amphibians. Amphibians make up over half of the ecosystems of biological diversity.
Amphibians represent the third group of animals in danger. The number and variety of amphibians in the world has decreased dramatically over the last century. Amphibians have been especially vulnerable to the loss of wetlands, which have largely collapsed due to human development. Some amphibians are no longer found in natural pools, and others have even become endangered. Many amphibians can only survive in specialized environments, and there is increasing evidence that many are severely threatened or already in danger of extinction.
The fourth group of animals in danger is marine reptiles. These animals have seen a sharp decline in numbers over recent decades. Their numbers have been reduced to as few as fifteen to twenty reptiles per square meter. Although they are now extremely rare, there is still a chance of recovery, particularly if careful attention is given to their conservation status. It is important to pay close attention to the status of reptiles over recent decades, as well as considering their role in natural ecosystems.
The final group of animals in danger of becoming extinct is birds. The number and variety of birds in the world had declined over the last century. They face the double threat of habitat destruction and the impact of humans, as both result in the decline of birds. Although there are some good areas for birds, other areas of the world are seeing a rapid decline, which represents a greater challenge for conservationists and managers. While there is still much that can be done to save these species, the recent trend continues to show that amphibians, reptiles, and marine reptiles are the primary areas in which we must focus our efforts.
Conservation programs can help to save these animals from extinction. Saving one species doesn’t necessarily mean saving all of them, but the more threatened an area is, the more actions we can take to ensure the survival of that species. This is why understanding the threats facing different types of animals is important, and what we can do to help or protect them. Through education and action, we can work towards conserving the health and survival of all species.
Solutions For The Endangered Species Problem
The recent news about 200 endangered animal species and habitat solution was quite a shock to the wildlife enthusiasts. We have heard of such cases in the past, but to know that there are so many to choose from was really shocking. It shows just how important conserving our natural resources is. These species must be protected and hence, action needs to be taken immediately. In fact, it is not only these species that are at risk, so all we need to worry about are all the millions of birds, amphibians, whales, and the like.
However, it is a matter of concern that more people are taking up this issue. This is because they realize that the world is going down the drain if nothing is done to save it. This is because, according to the latest statistics, there are more people living in poor conditions than those who have clean environments. This means that if we don’t do something about this situation soon, the situation will only get worse. That’s why everyone should be aware of the current threats and look for ways to protect nature.
A solution to save the threatened species and the environment itself has been developed by a team of specialists. In order to come up with a solution by which different kinds of business can work hand-in-hand together to preserve the species and the environment.
They did this by involving bird lovers and nature enthusiasts in different ways. First of all, you can involve yourself in bird watching or birding as a hobby. This involves regular visits to parks and other natural sites where you can see different species of birds. An expert company providing bird watching will surely have programs for bird watching during various times of the year.
You can also promote conservation of one species or the environment in general. When you have members in your community who are willing to go the extra mile for conservation, people can take advantage of such support and make it easier for others to do the same. In fact, a lot of people would be willing to lend you their support and help if they realized that your movement is doing its best it can in helping the environment.
The best solution for the present day problems is not always easy to find. It may take you some time to explore all the different options available, but that is no reason why you should not explore them.
Perhaps raising awareness is another solution that can provide great benefits to solving this problem. Maybe your next challenge online could include something about this subject. Every little counts!
