Transcript of Eskimo Curlew
Abiotic and Biotic factors of the organism's Habitat
Biotic Factors :
fungi, mosses, shrubs,
Birds ,mammals, Fish
What does the organism look like at all stages in life?
Eskimo Curlews are small curlews (Curlews are a group of eight species of birds) They are about 30cm in length (As a fully grown adult). They have long dark greyish legs & long beak/bill curved slightly downwards. The upper part (wings) of their body is dark brown and underpart of their body is light brown.
Location of the organism in Ontario with map
Eskimo Curlews were only known to nest in two areas of tundra in the Northwest Territories
Describe the Niche of the organisms
The bird controls the amount of insects (by using them as a source for food). They acts as a food source for it's predators.
What is causing the population to decrease?
The main factors of why the Eskimo Curlew are almost extinct is because of the uncontrolled commercial hunting in the 19th century and habitat loss. In 1916 a law was made to protect the Eskimo Curlew. But by then one of Eskimo Curlew's favourite food the "Rocky Mountain Locust" had gone extinct. Without their favourite food they began to decrease even more. Therefore the Eskimo Curlew population decreased rapidly because of hunting, habitat loss , and lack of food
What is being done to protect this organism?
People are told to report any illegal activity related to plants and wildlife to 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667).
When people use to hunt Eskimo Curlew
they were told to stop to protect them
Volunteer with a local nature club or provincial park to participate in surveys work focused on species at risk.

If Eskimo Curlew was extinct ,
owls and humans
would loose out on some for their food source
What would be the changes to the food chain if your organism is extinct?
