Introduction l.jpg
INTRODUCTION

  • WILDLIFE refers to all non-cultivated and non-domesticated life.

  • However,some of the species are threatened with problem of extinction.


Reason for extinction l.jpg
REASON FOR EXTINCTION

1)Habitat destruction.

2)Hunting and collection.

3)Pollution.

4)Competition from human and animals.

5)Naturalselection.


1 habitat destruction problem l.jpg
1)HABITAT DESTRUCTION PROBLEM

1)Human exploit many natural habitats, destroying them in the process , e.g.Timbering destroys forests and endangers species like the orang-utan. Clearing of river banks destroys the natural habitat of the otter species every year.

2) Deforestation : Destruction of the forest leads to extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .


2 hunting and collection problem l.jpg
2)Hunting And Collection Problem extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

1)Human hunt tigers for sport, crocodiles for their skins ,oryx as trophies, elephants for ivory, whales for oil and rhinoceros for their horn.


2 hunting and collection problem7 l.jpg
2)Hunting And Collection Problem extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

2)Some for the pet trade (e.g. tamarinds and parrots) and for research purpose,e.g. frogs.

These are in addition to the numerous species hunted for food .


3 pollution problem l.jpg
3) Pollution Problem extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

Oil pollution threatens some rare species of sea birds. The build-up of certain insecticides along food chains endangers predatory birds like the peregrine falcon and the golden eagle.


4 competition from humans and animals l.jpg
4)Competition from humans and animals extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • Where a species is restricted to a small area , e.g.. the giant tortoises in the Galapagos Islands , they are often unable to compete with the influx of man and animals .Because their habitat is restricted , they cannot escape.


5 natural selection problem l.jpg
5) Natural selection Problem extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

It is, and always has been, part of the normal process of evolution that organisms which are genetically better adapted replace ones less well adapted.


Conservation method l.jpg
CONSERVATION METHOD extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

1)Development of national parks and natural reserves.

2)Legal protection for endangered species.

3)Breeding in zoos and botanical gardens

4)Removal of animals from threatened areas

5)Pollution control

6)Recycling.

7)Education.


1 development of national parks and natural reserves l.jpg
1) Development of national parks and natural reserves extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

These are habitats legally safeguarded. They may preserve a vulnerable food source . In China areas of bamboo forest are protected to help conserve the panda. In Africa game parks help to conserve endangered species such as African elephant.


2 legal protection for endangered species l.jpg
2) Legal protection for endangered species extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • It is illegal to collect or kill certain species , e.g. the koala in Australia. In Britain, the Wildlife and Countryside Act gives legal protection to many wildlife.


3 breeding in zoos and botanical gardens l.jpg
3) Breeding in zoos and botanical gardens extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • Endangered species may be bred in the protected environment of a zoo. When numbers have been sufficiently increased they may be reintroduced into the wild .


4 removal of animals from threatened areas l.jpg
4) Removal of animals from threatened areas extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • Organisms in habitats threatened by humans , or by natural disasters such as floods may be removed and resettled in more secure habitats.


5 pollution control l.jpg
5)Pollution control extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • Measures to control pollution such as smoke emissions, oil spillage, overuse of pesticides, fertilizer run-off , etc. , all help to prevent habitat and species destruction.


6 recycling l.jpg
6) Recycling extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • The more material which is recycled, the less need there is to obtain that material from natural sources. These activities often destroy sensitive habitats directly or indirectly through the dumping of waste which is toxic or the development of roads to transport the product.


7 education l.jpg
7) Education extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • It is of paramount importance to educate people in ways of preventing habitat destruction and encouraging the conservation of organisms.


Organisation for conservation l.jpg
Organisation For Conservation extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • World Wild Fund For Nature( WWF ) 世界自然基金會


Threatened wildlife l.jpg
Threatened Wildlife extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .


Threatened wildlife included l.jpg
Threatened wildlife included : extinction of numerous species. It is estimated that deforestation of tropical rain forests has led to extinction of 6000 species every year .

  • 1) Tiger

  • 2) Panda

  • 3) African elephant
