Why Is Wildlife In Danger?:

Why Is Wildlife In Danger? 1. Habitat Destruction- Factors contributing to habitat loss are: overpopulation, deforestation, pollution and climate change.

PowerPoint Presentation:

2. Overexploitation- This occurs in the form of overhunting and the illegal wildlife trade.

PowerPoint Presentation:

3. Climate Change- Global warming is also considered to be a major threat to global biodiversity as it harms their body as well as habitat.

4. Human Overpopulation- The massive growth in the human population through the 20th century has had more impact on biodiversity than any other single factor as plants and animals have no place to live.

Endangered Species:

Endangered Species An endangered species is a population of organisms which is facing a high risk of becoming extinct. In India 149 species of plants and animals are listed as endangered by IUCN’s Red List. 9,713 known species in the world have been identified as endangered or critically endangered.

1. White- Rumped Vulture :

This species was very common, especially in the Gangetic plains of India. It declined rapidly in numbers since 1990s up to 99.9 % between 1992 and 2007. The decline has been widely attributed to poisoning by diclofenac leaving traces in cattle carcasses. 1. White- Rumped Vulture

PowerPoint Presentation:

For conservation of White Rumped Vulture- Campaigns to ban the use of diclofenac in veterinary practice have been underway. Conservation measures have included reintroduction, captive-breeding programs and artificial feeding.

2.Royal Bengal Tiger:

2.Royal Bengal Tiger The Bengal tiger is native to the Bengal region, and is the national animal of India and Bangladesh. Tigers are widely distributed throughout the India. Based on the result of the surveys in 2008, the total tiger population has been estimated at 1,411 individuals.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The decline in Tiger’s population is due to the following- Habitat and prey loss. Hunting, poaching and illegal trade. Conflict with humans. In 1972, Project Tiger was launched aiming at ensuring a viable population of tigers in the country.  There are 15 reserves covering an area of 24,700 square kms.
