ENDANGERED SPECIES

Slide 3: 

Endangered Species, plant and animal species that are in danger of extinction (dying out). Over 8,300 plant species and 7,200 animal species around the globe are threatened with extinction, and many thousands more become extinct each year before biologists can identify them. What are Endangered Species

Slide 4: 

The primary causes of species extinction or endangerment are habitat destruction, commercial exploitation (such as plant collecting, hunting, and trade in animal parts), damage caused by nonnative plants and animals introduced into an area, and pollution. Causes of Extinction

Slide 5: 

The first federal policy for the protection of endangered species was the Endangered Species Preservation Act, passed in 1966. This act was replaced in 1969 with the Endangered Species Conservation Act, which acted to strengthen the legislation. Finally, in 1973, the Endangered Species Act was passed. This act was recently reauthorized. Endangered Species Preservation Act

Causes Why Animals Become Endangered : 

Climate Change/Global Warming: It has been recently suggested that warmer global temperatures may be affecting animals in different ways. In fact, global warming is predicted to put at least 20-30% of plant and animal species at rist of extinction, and up to 40-70% in worst case scenarios. As an example, frogs are an especially vulnerable species. The climate warming has been suggested as a possible cause for the disappearance of the golden toad in Costa Rica. Causes Why Animals Become Endangered

How Can We Protect Them? : 

Make Space For Our Wildlife: Build a birdfeeder and establish a birdbath for the neighborhood birds. Plant a tree and build a birdhouse in your backyard. Start composting in your backyard garden or on your balcony. It eliminates the need for chemical fertilizers which are harmful to animals and humans, and it benefits your plants! Recycle, Reduce, And Reuse: Encourage your family to take public transportation. Walk or ride bicycles rather than using the car. Save energy by turning off lights, radios and the TV when you are not using them. Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth and use water-saving devices on your toilet, taps and showerhead. Recycle your toys, books and games by donating them to a hospital, daycare, nursery school or children's charity. How Can We Protect Them?

Leedy’s roseroot

Slide 28: 

Plant Native Plants That Are Local To The Area: If you can, plant native plants instead of non-native or introduced ones in your garden. You don’t want seeds from introduced plants escaping into the bush. Native grasses, flowers, shrubs and trees are more likely to attract native birds, butterflies and other insects, and maybe even some threatened species.

Slide 29: 

Control Introduced Plants And Animals: Non-native plants and animals are ones that come from outside your local area. Many environmental weeds come from people’s gardens.  Sometimes, the seeds are taken into the bush by the wind or by birds. Controlling these foreign species is an important step in protecting wildlife Join Organization: There are many community groups working on conservation activities. Join an organization in your area and start helping today!
