[Theme:Wild life preservation] Wild life preservation

Wild life preservation is a practice where by species of animals and plants are protected together and their natural environment.  All life, including human life depends on the eco-biodiversity as it is a support system of our planet and underpins the healthy ecosystems that provide us food, clean air and water, stable climate and medicines. Over the extend of time the world’s wildlife population have declined more than two-thirds since 1970  as there have been indiscriminate exploitation of the entire natural plants and animal life. On average data, 69% of Species population known in the geological history are found to be disappearing from the face of the earth at a rate of 2.5% each year and most of this is tied with human activities. This is a call for global concern if the root cause of these activities are not put to an end.

As the population sizes increases, it is expected that the suburbs of today are likely going to be urban areas of tomorrow as years goes by. However, some vivacious hopes to combat these challenges is by restoring the forest vegetation restoring wetlands or cleaning up beaches our areas, by planting native trees.

Farmers should practice the use of organic pesticides and fungicide, crop rotation, the use of farmyard manure and other organic waste in garden and farms that are eco-friendly to the environment. Another way is by recycle or reusing waste plastics that are either burn or emptied around and pollutes the environment.

Another ways is by educating and promoting hunters, poachers, forest wood exploiters and farmers to engage other alternative sources of livelihood such as apiculture which will help conserve the forest and as well a sustainable source of income generating activity while protecting their be hives. Bee farming will as well serve bees as pant pollinators and help solve the problem of human elephant conflicts since elephants do not like bees.

Another way is by supporting indigenous communities, promoting their culture and traditions, carrying out supportive ecological management programs with indigenous people and financing nature protectors and conservers, visiting nation park reserve, encouraging nature lover to engage into nature protection and increasing the number of nature and wildlife protected areas.

Livestock production such as poultry rearing, pig, sheep goat and other domesticated animals should be promoted as other alternative sources to meet consumers demand.

For wild life to core exist in an urbanized environment, there needs to be a keen knowledge and better understanding on the type of specie, whether native or non-native, their closeness to the forest and their evenness to the community. These aspects seems difficult to achieve in an urban community as human activities  such as road construction, noise from industries and cars, air pollution, water and land pollution, animal and human conflits are the possible threads in Intergrating wildlife in urban areas. However, for this to be achieved  urban gardening, orchards should be promoted which will  serves as reserved niche for some species of wildlife that can sustain existence within the urban environment. National reserved packs can as well be  integrated within  urban environment which will serve as urban carbon sink and also a touristic site to the global urban population.   

Urbanization has resulted in a ramshackle land transformation for greater growth and opportunities. On other aspects, urban areas are major places where pollution thus occurs and consumes or use a lot of natural resources like water and water. Urban cities are usually the most populated areas coupled with large expansion of human settlement and infrastructures  which has dramatically resulted to ecological degradation of valuable areas for example the native protected areas. These urbanized areas has led to fragmentation of habitats, loss or rare species, edge effect, decrease in water quality  and quantity, drying of wet land, air pollution, poor waste management, noise, human-wildlife conflicts, global warming and lost of indigenous culture and traditions and loss of touristic sites.

To conclude, it is high time for, human beings to understand that they are the integral part of the environment and for them to survive they need a huge responsibility to upkeep the living conditions  of all natural biodiversity and the environment itself.

    You have well demonstrated the reason why the number of wildlife is decreasing, and you also suggested several ways to preserve wildlife!

    Your suggestions are all very practical, and moreover, are an important point for preserving wildlife! Particularly, you have mentioned education, which I think is essential to fundamental solutions to the environmental problem!

    Thank you for sharing your opinion with us! I hope to read your next report too!

    Hello Dzelamunyuy!!
    This is your mentor James!

    I think you've well formulated your points in this report! You have stated the background information of wildlife preservation as well as the severity of endangered species.

    Then you have listed specific means of preserving wildlife. Among your methods, I think supporting the indigenous communities seems quite unique yet important. Most of the local residents in rural areas have their way of life to mutually coexist with nature. Respecting this culture is two birds with one stone since we can protect the local environment as well as the cultural heritage of the area.

    All in all, thanks for your meaningful report! Hoping to see more of your writings like this.
