[March Thematic Report] Wildlife Preservation

by Richard Adayi | 01-04-2023 08:25 recommendations 0

The evolution of the human condition has led men and women to welcome even into their beds, animals that were once feared and excluded from their closest living environment. Therefore, we are now talking about domestic and wild animals. However, noting that the wild condition is better suited to certain animal species than to others and above all to preserve this natural balance between what makes flora, flora and what makes fauna, fauna; the fauna and flora making nature; and the nature and humans making the world: It therefore seems increasingly fundamental to us that wildlife be preserved. Here, we’ve understood means of wildlife preservation.

On status of global wildlife, it’s a fact that wildlife can be found in all ecosystems: deserts, plains, grasslands, woodlands, forests, and other areas, including the most developed urban areas, all have distinct forms of wildlife. And as second evidence that we can easily deduce, much wildlife is affected by human activities.

Exploring both fauna and flora of the globe, there are endangered species. But we have known natural wildlife reserves, some of which are protected by state legislation and international organizations such as UNESCO: somehow protecting wildness.

The effect of energy development on wildlife and surrounding environment is today clear to all as a state of abuse of these human activities on the balance of what the world has in reserve and what it has as natural. Wildlife continues to suffer from the old basic human needs of consumption (food, pollution), exchange (trade, money), exploration (tourism), expansion (houses, road, …).

Understanding that dealing with wildlife does not have to be wildlife ecosystems only in rural areas, ex situ conservation, in situ conservation and wildlife corridor approaches and studies give us hope and are confirming that coexistence within urbanized environments will be a way to go also.

In my area, Togo, a state party to the Convention on the Protection of World Cultural and Natural Heritage, has natural reserves or protected areas located, each in a specific region, or straddling two neighboring regions: Region of Kara, Central and Savanes. We count nine nature reserves declared priorities and three among them proposed in 2004 to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. On a smaller level, in towns and villages the protection of wildlife remains an abstract notion because we do not really see the practices being more conscious on an individual level though World Wildlife Day is worldwide every 3rd of March; but here we are and this is what we stand for as youth first and as Eco generation Ambassador, secondly!

    Hello again Richard! This is your mentor James!

    Firstly, my apologies for the late comments.

    I'm guessing that you have made quite a philosophical approach to define wildlife preservation, and it is on point! I also agree with you that wildlife has been suffering due to human activities since ancient history, and that the damage taken is enlarging day after another. Thus, expanding natural reserves and declaring UNESCO World heritage would be a great solution as Togo is doing right now!

    Thank you for your contribution! Looking forward to reading your next report.

    Hello Richard! This is your mentor Yewon.

    You have written an awesome report about wildlife preservation!
    You made several important points related to wildlife preservation such as energy development.
    Especially I liked the point of view that understanding wildlife ecosystems can also be in urbanized environments.
    Moreover, the example of your region is very interesting! Hopefully, the wildlife ecosystems in Togo would be preserved well!

    Thank you for your informatic report! Great job!
