In addition to providing the animal with shelter, and necessary supplies the natural parks can bring back a whole species from near extinction. In the passage “The Impact of Animal Protection” it directly states that keeping animals protected has proven to be beneficial and increase the population of endangered animals. Bringing animals back from near extinction can be a difficult task, however it is very beneficial. Animal protection is also used to help control animal population from getting out of control. These programs have brought back plenty of species such as black footed ferrets, California condors, red wolves, and golden lion tamarins. (Do Animals Lose in Zoos?) The community would never get to see these amazing creatures if these
Christian Diehm wrote many journal articles, and showed his intelligence through his writing, and education. He achieved several awards, and is an inspiration to scientists across the world. The article that will be discussed today is Should Extinction be Forever? Restitution, Restoration, and Reviving Extinct Species by Christian Diehm. This article is about reversing the plant extinction, or ‘de-extinction’, and how to further this project. This process means that when human damages, or kills an organism they owe restitution towards that species, or a relative of theirs. There are benefits to this design, and there are portions that would not add up if all followed. There are many people who have contributed towards this concept of de-extinction, these people are the ones who have shaped the future for us. This concept of restitution is a good thought in speculation, but there are too many problems with the execution.
People dump about 70 million tons of pollution into the air every day causing nature to be destroyed even though people can’t survive without nature. The needs of people are not more important than the needs the planet and animals.
Thus beginning the but the animal yet again where worried that now the man would grow lonely, so then Hactcin, with a lice made the man dream of a women. When he had woken there she was, and they were instructed to eat plants and animal. From the first man and women come all people of their tribe after. Apache spirit “Holy Boy” tried to make the sun and with help of White and Black Hactcin and Red Boy they made what daylight is to us now. Shamans claimed they controlled the sun but four days after an eclipse occurred and unable to bring the light back, White Hactcin called upon the animal and with their help they created a mountain. This mountain was climbed by White, Black Hactcin and Holy boy as well as Red boy who only saw the sun was in another earth where it shined bright. Man and women where the first to climb up the mountain and there all others come up except two, an old man and an old women. They stayed behind but told the others they had to go back one day which is why when we die we go the underworld.
Stephen Gould’s essay “Sex, Drugs, Disasters, and the Extinction of the Dinosaurs” completely agrees with Joseph Williams and Gregory Colomb’s essay “Argument, Critical Thinking, and Rationality.” Gould’s essay deals with three theories for the extinction of the dinosaurs, two of which he argues are entirely invalid because they are not in accordance with the basic rules of argument laid out by Williams and Colomb in their essay. Gould also states that the third theory of dinosaur extinction, natural disaster, follows all the rules that Williams and Colomb espouse, and thus is a sound argument. Gould, Williams, and Colomb all state that the world has a problem with irrational arguments being shoved down people’s throats, and call for a
There have been five major mass extinction on earth triggered by a distinguishable event, but in The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History, Elizabeth Kolbert writes of the narrative of the sixth extinction caused directly by human impact. The book identifies the effects of human activity on how, over humans history on earth, the natural world has been affected. Every environmental impact stems into three basic groups of global problems to nature: Pollution, Habitat loss and Invasive Species. Kolbert explains that each impact can be traced back to one source, human industrial development. With each impact various types of life in the natural world are affected. Deforestation, urbanization, and sea level rise contribute to habitat loss worldwide. When humans began to travel they also brought invasive species and disease along with them; as boats only became bigger more and more invasive species travel. This reverse engineering of the planet species, brings new species that don’t have any natural predators, thus having an easier time driving native species out to endangerment or extinction. The different outcomes that come from human pollution is separated throughout the book, but the idea remains constant; with the development of human culture, pollution has drastically impacted a vast extent of species habitats and their environment.
There have been five well known extinctions on this earth. The one most well known is the mass extinction that ended the dinosaurs. Mass extinction is often described as the elimination of a large number of species in a short period of time. Despite what many think, the elimination of species is almost commonplace at this point. The Earth is currently in the middle of a sixth mass extinction, and it’s been caused by the human race.
The myth of pet overpopulation is a huge campaign that’s considered truth nationwide. The National Animal Interest Alliance (NAIA) explains this myth and why it’s used. Activists use the myth to put all blame of animal shelter death on breeders. Radical groups perpetuate this myth by making breeding restrictions. This myth is the biggest cause of euthanizing healthy, adoptable animals. Per year, about 3.1 million dogs are adopted while 2.1 million are euthanized. However, this number for euthanized dogs is not broken down by reasoning for euthanization. Overpopulation propagandists often claims this number reaches over 6 million each year. While shelters heavily euthanize adoptable dogs and breeders increasingly use puppy mills, each area across
Good afternoon, I'm Joanna Pulido and today I am going to talk about the issues of animal overpopulation. When a cat or dog is born it doesn’t know what its life is going to be, unfortunately many times they never get to have a good one. There is a significant amount of animal overpopulation so, remarkable measures need to be taken for the sake of the animals. There are many reasons why pet overpopulation is a problem, but three of the biggest ones i believe that are the causes are, that cats and dogs on the street are reproducing with little chances on finding homes. Second, pet owners get rid of pets becauses they can’t have them anymore or want them. Lastly, pet owners breed their dogs and sell the babies for profit. However very many drastic
During Late Pleistocene a megafaunal mass extinction took place. It’s still debated whether humans are to blame for this, since this megafaunal extinction happened after the arrival of humans or if climate change is entirely to blame. Fossil evidence has been of great help in finding what factors might’ve caused this extinction. This mass extinction that took place is related to the Anthropocene because if humans were the main cause, humans need to be more careful now because their actions may lead to more extinctions. The observations made were the types of species that went extinct with climate change, and what humans did to contribute to this mass extinction.
The topic that I plan to write about is how the distinction between "human" and "animal" has blurred and altered. This topic reveals the control and domination that are innate to animal and human which obscures the role of characters. Animals share traits with humans in genetics, affection, and behaviors that all make them similar to each other. The narrative text I plan to use as my focus is "The Veldt" where kids addict to the fantasy world and kill their biological parent to save and permanently live with lions. The intimate relationship between kids and lions has overthrown the conventional human role where animal replaces the existence of the parent and eats them in their house. From the text, it reveals the manipulation from lions to
Everything changes over time, due to multiple reasons yet things still change for a reasons. Mammals today aren't exactly the same as the mammals 250 million years ago. Mammals were barely classified their own group once the extinction of dinosaurs but scientist have evidence to believe mammals have been around longer than the extinction of dinosaurs, approximately 150 million years before. In 2001, researchers reported that a fossil was found in China in the year 1985. It was the remains of a tiny, furry animal that was believed to be a relative of the living mammals today. Instead it didn’t live in our time, but lived 195 million years ago in the Early Jurassic period. The small ancient mammal had the name of Hadrocodium wui, and the
Extinction: A Radical History is a book published by writer, professor and activist Ashley Dawson. It was published on the 22nd of April 2016. Dawson talks about multiple broad subjects in his book like how Capitalism is the main source of mass extinction. By doing so, he takes into account the lengthy history of the Homo Sapiens species, their activities and their discoveries and how us, humans, have affected today’s biodiversity, and probably the future of our planet Earth. He also offers solutions but are they realistically possible? Today, we no longer face natural risks like asteroids and comets. As Dawson states we now face anthropogenic risks like climate change and biodiversity loss which leads to a change in the earth’s ecosystem.
Since before the industrial evolutions humans have been pumping green house gasses—carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons— into the atmosphere however, it wasn’t until recently that the amounts being produced are shoving the Earth into a sixth extinction. While the causes of this upcoming extinction are constantly debated on it has earned itself the name Holocene extinction. This name is derived from the theory that humans are the main contributors to this extinction. To investigate the cause Elizabeth Kolbert, and American journalist and professor at Williams College, took the world on a wild and saddening journey on the human contribution to this looming extinction in her novel, The Sixth Extinction; An Unnatural History. Not only does Kolbert’s book explain how humans have contributed to global warming and its effects on life on land but also ocean acidification and how life under the sea has changed over the years.
