Annual Environmental Project
Problem: There are a lot of endangered species around the world. This makes other species to become endangered. There are a lot of facts that cause this problem forexample air pollution, soil pollution, water pollution, deforestation, etc.
Rationale: “We can no longer see the continued loss of biodiversity as an issue separate from the core concerns of society: totackle poverty, to improve the health, prosperity and security of present and future generations, and to deal with climate change. Each of those objectives is undermined by current trends in thestate of our ecosystems, and each will be greatly strengthened if we finally give biodiversity the priority it deserves.”

 Habitat Destruction

Our planet is continually changing, causing habitats to be altered and modified. Natural changes tend to occur at a gradual pace, usually causing only a slight impacton individual species. However, when changes occur at a fast pace, there is little or no time for individual species to react and adjust to new circumstances. This can create disastrous results, andfor this reason, rapid habitat loss is the primary cause of species endangerment. The strongest forces in rapid habitat loss are human beings. Nearly every region of the earth has been affected byhuman activity, particularly during this past century. The loss of microbes in soils that formerly supported tropical forests, the extinction of fish and various aquatic species in polluted habitats, andchanges in global climate brought about by the release of greenhouse gases are all results of human activity.
Introduction of Exotic Species
Native species are those plants and animals that arepart of a specific geographic area, and have ordinarily been a part of that particular biological landscape for a lengthy period of time. They are well adapted to their local environment and are...
