Transcript of Grasslands

the grassLAND biome My part of my group is: warnings!! Some threats to this biome are: Some endangered species Are... Global Warmimg Conversion to agriculter (or urban areas) asian elephant mexican prairie dog Black footed ferret Northern hairy-nosed wombat Black Rhino grevy's zebra West african giraffe rothschild giraffe barbary leopard zanzibar leopard
(or extinct) the climate for the grassland is usually dry.
but not to dry. At the most, 10-30 inches of rain
each year. Summers are warm and humid, winters
are very cold. Animals have to adapt to the winter
by hibernating. Animals build burrows and nests in
the winter. There is usually no constant wind every
day. Usually in the winters, the temperature is 20
degrees. In the summers it is a warm 70 degrees. The grasslands is a place for over 200 species of plants and animals! because animals live in the grasslands and eat it (grass)....and if some animals didn't live there, their pedators would feed and then die, then their species would become extinct. It is a chain reaction. animals start out there if they weren't the predator of the prey would... DIE!! then maybe extinct! the cycle My sources missiouri botanical garden

it has the environment that provides the appropriate food, water, and shelter for the plants and animals to prosper
and survive! the grASSLAND ARE LOCATED EVERYWHERE EXCEPT ANTARCTICA By aubrey istnick they Are endangered because
people killed them for
their unique skin and tusks. they Are endangered becuause
they were a pest for farmers.
they were often posioned to
death! they Are endangered because
they eat prairie dogs, and since
prairie dogs are endangered. the
black footed ferret is also becoming endangered! it is a chain reaction! they Are endangered because
After some dingo predation
and the drought of the 1990s, the current population is estimated to be about 110. they are endangered because
of their valuable horns
to make medicine. they Are endangered because
They are hunted for food, medicine, and hides, competition for water and food with people and domestic livestock, and loss of habitat. they are endangered because
habitat loss, and poaching but some other factors are also making conservation efforts difficult like for instance competition among giraffes, and frequent droughts.
they Are endangered because
they are hunted for their meat and their skin they Are endangered because
of their rich fur skin and
meats! they are endangered (or extinct)
because Efforts to develop a leopard conservation programme in the mid-1990s were shelved when wildlife researchers concluded that there was little prospect for the animal's long-term survival.
