Transcript of Habitat Destruction

Habitat Destruction By: Veronica Hetschinof The Main Problems:
Deforestation and Pollution WHAT ABOUT US? VOCABULARY What about plants? What about the Animals? Who Helps Stop This Process? How Can We Reduce Pollution and Deforestation? This is an inspirational clip
showing what we have done to nature. What did deforestation do? Who Does Habitat Destruction Affect? What Causes Habitat Destruction? The Basics of Habitat Destruction Habitat destruction is the process by which natural habitat is damaged or destroyed to such an extent that it no longer is capable of supporting the species and ecological communities that naturally occur there. It often results in the extinction of species and, as a result, the loss of boidiversity. Habitat destruction is mainly because of the large
increase of the human population and the growing demand for wood products.We, humans, also pollute a lot,slowly adding chemicals and wastes into the earth. We all somehow are affected by the deforestation effect. The destruction of forests leaves animals and plants no place to survive and they eventually die out. This affects the food chain and may kill other animal species who depended on the others that already died out.Everything gets out of order and the eco-system will never be the same. Deforestation has created major impact on the
environment,demolishing the eco-systems which completely crashes the functions of our planet. Trees are really important to all of us and we are using them up like its nothing. We need to learn how to give back and not trash our own homes. Many people around the world against the idea for clear-cutting. A lot of people try to prevent it and persuade organizations to protect more and more forests and try to stop dumping wastes into the ocean because animal and plant species slowly decrease every day. Scientists try to stop it and pay people out of doing it.Others continue destroying forests as if it was their only passion. Habitat-the natural environment of an organism; place that is natural for the life and growth of an organism.
Extinction- the act or process of becoming extinct; a coming to an end or dying out.
Environmentalist-any person who advocates or works to protect the air, water, animals, plants, and other natural resources from pollution or its effects.
Environment-the air, water, minerals, organisms, and all other external factors surrounding and affecting a given organism at any time.
Destruction-the act of destroying.
Pollution-the introduction of harmful substances or products into the environment.
Biodiversity-diversity among and within plant and animal species in an environment.
Endangered-threatened with extinction. Animal species are in real danger right now. We are trashing and destroying their homes, taking their food,and killing them for their fur. They are defenseless against our crimes and only we can help stop the cruelty of slaughter and deforestation. What's Habitat Destruction? Approximately 10 million trees are cut down every day around the world. Its almost like the domino effect,if one factor
falls so do the other factors. 200 species go extinct every day including marine life,plants,insects,birds,and mammals because of deforestation. Forestry professionals and resource managers argue that the practice is sound if used properly. There is only 1.8 million harp seals left in the world. There are about 1,500 nesting female sea turtles, the males rarely ever come to shore so you can't really count them. There are 1,400 tree kangaroos left in the wild. There are around 60,000 polar bears left in the world. There are 2,520 red pandas left in the world. Most of the reasons these mammals are endangered is because of deforestation. A loss of biodiversity often follows reduction in the amount of forested land.Trees, shrubs and other plants provide shelter, food and shade for an enormous range of bacteria, fungi, insects, animals and birds.When deforestation occurs, it generally is much harder for the environment to sustain this variety, simply because not all organisms can survive in the same habitat or conditions.The planet already has lost thousands of species and might lose thousands more. Without plants life is hard to sustain making it almost impossible to survive. I found most of my work on

Deforestation is a harder thing to prevent but we can stop using so much paper. Reducing paper use will help save trees which are also animals homes. I found most of my info
