  • 3. FLASH POINTS:
    • Climate V/S Habitat:
    • Plants and animals are dying off up to 1000 times more quickly than in past centuries. But the biologists cant agree on the reason or the solution. One camp argues that we must stop 'bulldozing the garden of Eden’ and slow the destruction of habitats. another believes that unless we address global warming, saving floes and forests wont matter.
  • 4. Heated hot spots
    • A disproportionate share of life-forms is concentrated in 34 biodiversity" hot spots” such as Madagascar, which boasts 10,000 unique species worth untold millions to curious pharmaceutical companies. But preserving the island’s plants and animals means battling timber companies and political unrest-and providing eco friendly options to locals who make a living chopping down tree or selling lemurs to restaurant.
  • 5. DODO
    • It is a flightless, long-beaked bird.
    • It inspired many phrases like as ‘dumb as a dodo’.
    • It lived in Mauritius.
    • Died in late 1600s.
    • Due to deforestation and its ‘sitting duck status with predators.
    • status: extinct
  • 6. BLACK RHINOCEROS
    • The Chinese believe the rhino's horn acts as an analgesics.
    • A single horn can sell for ten of thousands of dollars on black market.
    • African nature preserves to cut off the horns preventively.
    • Or to keep animals under armed guard.
    • About 4242 remain.
    • status: endangered
  • 7. CHIMPANZEE
    • A million were swinging free in 1900.
    • Now there are fewer than 300,000.
    • They are haunted for meat even today.
    • Threatened by a disappearing forest habitat.
    • status: endangered
  • 8. EL SEGUNDO BLUE BUTTERFLY
    • 10 years ago ,only three small colonies of these butterflies remained, near the los angles airport.
    • Now ,after a decade of careful nursing. They are fluttering on LA beaches as well.
    • status: endangered
  • 9. tiger
    • there are less than 4600 tigers left on earth.
    • Just 500 Sumatran tigers may be alive and only 30 south china tigers.
    • The Bengal tigers population has been fallen from 200 to 1400.
    • Poaching is not the only threat. fragmentation of the tigers habitat due to mining dams and other projects also.
    • status: threatened
  • 10. Bald eagle
    • Population in US states have increased25-foldsince the1960s thanks to a array of protective measures.
    • It has been taken out from the endangered list in 2007.
    • It joined the American alligator, the yellow stone grizzly bear, and the peregrine falcon as a specie to get conservation efforts.
    • status: no longer threatened or endangered
  • 11. Forward thinking
    • Measures to be taken to conserve are:
    • Ban off caves to humans,who,they say, may spread a deadly fungus to bats- critical pollinators and champion mosquito eaters.
    • Shut down sawmills
    • Buy forest land and plant more trees rather than cut them.
    • Reducing greenhouse gases.
    • Plant the wildflowers that sustain bees, butterflies and bats or other at risk pollinators .why care? Three out off our crops species wont grow without them.
