Transcript of Endangered Species in Puerto Rico

Endangered Species in Puerto Rico
The Puerto Rican Parrot
Hooded Seal
Queen Triggerfish
General Knowledge about Endangered Species in Puerto Rico
Red Fruit Bat
The seals were over hunted for oil and leather before the 1940s
The babies were also highly targeted for their soft fur
There is still illegal killing of the seals today






Population found in Luquillo Mountains
Threatened by humans and various natural disasters
They are predominately solitary animals
Not much is known about them
Love to eat sea urchins
Are caught and skin is dried for sandpaper
They are around 2 feet long
Aggressive fish
When it feels in danger it will dive into coral and lock out its spines to make it unable to be removed from the coral
In Puerto Rico there about 74 different endangered species
Because of the uprise in having iguanas as pets they are at an incredibly high level of population due to their owners releasing them in the wild when they got to be to much to care for
There is a area, called the Northeastern Ecological Corridor, that is home to more than 40 endangered species in a 3200 acre area
How to fix the problem
If the residents of Puerto Rico stopped using illegal methods to over kill the various animals many would get off the endangered list
Many reasons of endangerment are deforestation, air and water pollution, over hunting and fishing
Puerto Rico's Wildlife
The parrot's native homes are in El Yunque and the Rio Abajo forests
They became endangered in 1967
In 1975 there were only 13 parrots left in the wild
La casa natal del loro de Puerto Rico esta en El Yunque y en el Rio Abajo los bosques
Ellos se convirtieron en la lista de los animales en peligro de extincion en mil novecientos sesenta y siete
Los sellos fueron cazados por el aceite y el cuero antes de mil novecientos cuarenta
Los bebes tambien fueron sumamente usados por su piel suave
Hay todavia hay matanza ilegal de los sellos hoy
La poblacion se encuentra en las montanas de Luquillo
Han sido amenazados por humanos y varios desastres naturales
Ellos son predominantemente animales solitarios
No mucho es conocido sobre ellos
Me encanta comer erizos del mar
Capturan la piel y se seca por papel de lija
Ellos son alrededor de dos pies largo
Pez agresivo
Cuando se siente en peligro sera picada dentro del coral y deja fuera su columna vertebral hace que no se pueda ser capturado de la coral
Conocimientos Generales Sobre Especies en Peligro de Extincion en Puerto Rico
En Puerto Rico hay aproximadamente setenta y cuatro especies en peligro de extinction
Porque del levantamiento en tener las iguanas como animales de compania ellos estan en increiblemente altos niveles de poblacion debido a sus duenos liberandolos en el salvaje cuando ellos ya no se pueden cuidar
Hay una zona, llamada el Corredor Del Norteste Ecologico, que es el hogar mas que teine cuarenta especies en peligro de extinction en un area de 3200 hectareas
Como Arreglar el problema
Si los residentes de Puerto Rico dejan de usar metodos ilegales para matar a estos animales mucho se bajaria la lista de extincion
Muchas de las razones del los peligros de extincion son la deforestacion,y la contaminacion de aire y agua, y sobre cazar y pescar
