[March Theme Report] Wildlife Preservation; Immediate Action Needed!

by Baekjin Kim | 18-03-2023 05:20 recommendations 0

Wildlife is animal species that have not been tamed. They can be found in any ecosystem, and plays an essential role in our world. Numerous environmental changes are happening simultaneously around the world, which ultimately brings catastrophes not only to human beings but to other wildlife animals and their environment. However, as humans interrupt, their position is lost. 


One of the most significant human interruptions is urbanization. As urbanization increases, the habitats for wildlife decrease, as humans try to expand their own businesses, filled with ambitious plans without any thoughts on the wildlife. Humans create gigantic and extensive roads, demolish forests, and cut down mountains. As a result, wildlife species lose their home. As an example, innocent wildlife animals are getting killed by the indiscreet expressways that are built along the countryside and penetrate the forests, also known as “road kills”. According to ScientificAmerican, Clara Grilo of the University of Aveiro in Portugal, and her colleagues collected data from 90 European roadkill surveys and made a result that on Europe’s roads, 194 million birds and 29 million mammals die annually and more than 350 million vertebrate animals are killed by traffic in the U.S.


Some of the possible solutions, where humans and wildlife can co-exist is reserving greenbelt areas. Greenbelt areas are regions that are protected for several reasons, including for the preservation of nature and wildlife in specific areas. Another possible solution could be making bridges for the animals to cross over different areas. It is also known as Eco-Corridors, where they can cross over different mountains using naturally friendly bridges. Although these solutions appear, it is everyone’s responsibility to increase awareness of how vulnerable the situation of wildlife species are, and how we can preserve them to make the world a better place not just for humanity, but also for the animals to coexist together.

    Hello Backjin!
    This is your mentor Yewon.

    You have written a report about the effect of human activities on wildlife and the means to preserve wildlife! I agree with your point of view that urbanization is the most significant human interruption as it decreases the habitat of wildlife!

    Also, I think your suggestions including assigning greenbelt regions and making the bridge would be a good solution that can help preserve wildlife.

    Thank you for your great work!

    Hello Baekjin! This is your mentor James!

    I see that you have focused on the effect of urbanization on wildlife. I totally agree with the catastrophic deforestation occurring around the world just for the need of human population. This would bring about detrimental effects on both the ecosystem and the local community since ecological and cultural heritage would be lost simultaneously.

    I also heard about the Greenbelt regions before! It would directly contribute in preserving habitats and animals within. The concept of eco-corridors is new to me, and I find it very interesting too!

    Thanks for this intriguing article! Hope you keep writing good reports like these.
