Science Fact of the Month – August 2010

 This month we  shall examine   the issue of endangered species. According to  http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=endangered%20species, an endangered species is defined as a species whose numbers are so small that the species is at risk of extinction.

One example of a  endangered  species is   the African Elephant. The  African elephant has been endangered  due to a reduction of 50% in its  population throughout the course of the past 60 years.  While hunting of this endangered species, has been banned  , they are still often poached in various nations due to its ivory.

 

 One  effective way to help  endangered species  is  to become a member of   an organization which is dedicated to protecting  them. By doing this, you will be able to make use of  various resources  to   raise awareness of the  dangers  facing endangered species . Furthermore, by   uniting with others you will be able to work together to determine  a variety of effective  methods for providing assistance to the endangered  species.One example of how such organizations help provide assistance to them  is how they   push the Federal government to    pass laws which  help  preserve endangered species and their sensitive habitats. 

  A prominent organization  for protecting  endangered species is the Worldwildlife Organization which operates in over 100 countries ,with  the support of over 5 million members.  The organization  utilizes  our knowledge   modern science to its fullest potential in order to  help protect endangered species  and help maintain  the  diversity of  wildlife present  in Earth.

 Interesting Fact

 Globally, there are  over  1000 endangered species.
