One of the things humans don’t see is the big picture. We often do not know the interoperability of everything that sustains life. The web is so complex and interdependent that we are just beginning to understand it. The food chain from the smallest microbes to the largest creatures on the planet keeps our people alive.
Therefore, when we talk about gray whales, wood wolf and black rhino, we must not only save these endangered creatures for them, but also ours. Current legislation and government agencies that protect wildlife from extinction are underfunded and reorganized. It is the responsibility of the general public and environmental groups to preserve these important connections in the food chain. There are several ways to do this.
Learn about endangered species in your area
Tell your friends and family about the wonderful wildlife, birds, fish and plants that live near you. The first step in protecting an endangered species is to learn how interesting and important it is. Our natural world provides us with many essential services, including clean air and water, food and medicinal resources, commercial, aesthetic and entertainment benefits.
Native plants provide food and shelter for native wildlife.
Native plants provide food and shelter for native games. By attracting native insects such as bees and butterflies, you can help pollinate plants. The distribution of alien species has a significant impact on indigenous peoples around the world. Invasive species compete with native species for resources and habitat. They can even prey on native species directly and even extinct them.
Drive Slow around Wildlife
slow down as you drive. Many animals live in developed areas. In short, you need to navigate the dangerous landscape of humans. Roads are one of the biggest obstacles to wildlife in developed areas. Roads divide the habitat and constantly pose a danger to animals trying to cross from one side to the other. Therefore, if you are on the go, slow down and pay attention to wildlife.
Recycle and buy eco-friendly products.
Recycle and buy sustainable products. Purchase sustainable products such as recycled paper, bamboo and wood products from the Forest Stewardship Council to protect forest species. Do not buy wooden furniture from the rainforest. Recycle mobile phones as the minerals used in mobile phones and other electronic devices are mined in gorilla habitats. Limit the use of palm oil as tiger forests are being logged to plant palm plantations.
Harassing wildlife is cruel and illegal.
Harassing animals is cruel and illegal. Shooting, capturing, or forcing endangered or endangered animals is also illegal and can lead to extinction. Do not participate in this activity and report it as soon as you see it in your local, state, or federal law enforcement agency.
Protect wildlife habitat
The greatest threat facing many species is widespread habitat destruction. Scientists tell us that the best way to protect endangered species is to protect the special places they live in. Wildlife needs a place to find food, evacuate, and raise children. Lumber, oil and gas mining, overgrazing and development can lead to habitat destruction. Habitats of endangered species need to be protected and their effects minimized.
Black out of Black Market
Sometimes when we travel, we don’t realize that the souvenirs we are buying are under threat. Avoid supporting the market in illegal wildlife including: tortoise-shell, ivory, and coral.
There is so much we can be doing to protect these animals and vulnerable species from extinction, but we must make these changes now. Our kids need to see us upgrading our own behavior and taking the issues seriously. For more on helping endangered species, visit: http://www.endangered.org
