Canadian Lynx

By: Elaina Chin and Kennedy Larson


What causes species to become endangered
What causes species to become endangered?

  • Deforestation or other habitat loss, other human activity, pollution, competition from other species, various diseases and Overexploitation


What would happen if a species were to go extinct
What would happen if a species were to go extinct?

  • The ecosystem that the species lives in would not be able to maintain balance and be destroyed

  • Various plants and animals are used for medicines, so if the plants and animals go extinct less people will have medicine


Habitat
Habitat

From Northern US to Canada


Diet

  • Lynxes‘ are carnivores

  • They eat mostly Snowshoe hare, and also eat rodents birds and fish


How to save them
How to save them

  • “Spread the word” about endangered species

  • Change a habit, such as eating less meat

  • Build a bird house

  • Recycle, Reduce and Reuse

  • Write a letter to a newspaper editor

  • Write a letter to the Senate and/or the House of Representatives


Our plan
Our plan

  • We have written a letter to the Statesman Journal Newspaper Editor, we also have a blog and a website to tell everybody about endangered species

I am writing this on behalf of the Canadian Lynx and all other endangered

species. To help the endangered species were planning to not buy items made of fur or

any animal parts. We are also going to advertise our project by using a website, blog,

and the internet (such as: emails, Facebook, and Twitter). We hope by being able to tell

many other people that we can make an impact. Right now many species, various plants

and animals, are endangered. The reason that they’re going extinct is mostly our fault.

We often cut down forests, chasing many animals away from their habitat. Also we start

expanding our communities which takes many other animal and plant habitats. Many of

these plants and animals are used for many purposes. If we can keep the species from

going extinct, that would help people tremendously. We now need to help them, because

it’s our fault.

I believe if we started this problem, we should be the ones to fix it. My

friend and I have written this letter to you hoping that you would listen to us, and

help us tell others that this problem is getting serious and it needs to be fixed.

Sincerely,

Elaina and Kennedy,

from Adam Stephens Middle School
