Transcript of Wildlife Conservation Around the Globe

Washington, D.C. USA Conservator’s Center
Mebane, North Carolina, USA Rescue, education, and conservation is the aim for one of many of the facilities of its kind in the U.S. These facilities are havens for threatened species, housing animals who been abandoned, abused, or threatened by disease. They take in animals suffering from behavioral issues, disability and illness. And for many of these animals, such facilities are a last resort.

http://www.conservatorscenter.org/ Serengeti National Park
Tanzania One of the few protected areas in the world larger than Kruger National Park is the Serengeti. Thirty thousand square kilometers of savannah and forests are home to nearly one thousand different animal species, which contribute to one of the last great migratory lands in the world. Nearly unchanged for past million years, the Serengeti is one of the oldest ecosystems on Earth. Buxa Tiger Reserve
West Bengal, India Located within Buxa National Park sits the 760 square kilometer Buxa Tiger Reserve. A haven to Tigers and Clouded Leopards alike, the reserve intersects a natural Elephant Migration Corridor. This ecosystem is one of the most diverse in India, including deciduous forest, savannah land, and tropical and subtropical regions. Shenzhen Safari Park
Shenzhen City, Nanshan District, China Shenzhen Safari Park is one of the first of its kind in China, taking up a 300 acre section in Nanshan District. Observers have indicated that this facility is little more than a stationary circus, with animals subjected to show and performance. It has also been reported that the animals are kept in substandard conditions, de-clawed and de-fanged, physically abused, malnourished, and in poor health. These issues are of major concern for environmental organizations and Chinese government officials have been repeatedly approached and pressured to resolve these issues. Unfortunately, this is one of many such facilities in China and around the world. Shanghai Wildlife Park
Shanghai, China The only drive-through safari park in the Shanghai Province, SWP is home to over 200 different species of wildlife. Buses parade tourists through hundreds of acres of free roaming wildlife in conjunction with a walking path to get up close and personal with some of the smaller animals. Like other parks in China however, some animals are forced to provide entertainment and endure less than adequate living arrangements. The Great Barrier Reef
East Coast, Australia Composed of nearly 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands, this massive natural wonder can be seen from outer space and is the largest living structure on Earth at over 340,000 square kilometers. As a World Heritage Site, it is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The reef is also home to more than thirty species of marine mammals, 1,500 fish species, 200 bird species – of which number in the millions during nesting season. http://www.nps.gov/dena/photosmultimedia/efeatures.htm Tour Denali http://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/index.htm Park Information http://www.nps.gov/dena/photosmultimedia/index.htm Pictures of Denali Over 6 million acres of protected land which includes forest, tundra and snowy mountains.

Video of a White Shark Breach Shark Alley
Gansbaai, South Africa Off the coast of Gansbaai, South Africa, in between the islands of Geyser Rock and Dyer Island, lies Shark Alley. Home to one the largest populations of cape fur seals in the world, Shark Alley has been the subject of many scientific studies and video documentaries. Researchers do not come here for the seals, however. They come to see the magnificent and awe-inspiring Great White Sharks that frequent these waters to feed on the seals and can often be seen leaping straight out of the water in pursuit. It truly is the Great White Shark capital of the world. Shark Alley

http://www.whiteshark.co.za/ So what is being done? Let’s take a look… If you had to choose how your children were able to view these animals, what would you choose? As an example, there are currently less than 5,000 recorded tigers left in the wild… 12% - Is that a lot? In the numbers game, no.
There are more than 17,000,000 known species on Earth.
Let’s consider some of the species involved… What are we doing do preserve Earth’s most valuable resources? Wildlife Conservation Around the Globe 17, 315 17, 315 – The number of species classified as “vulnerable” for planet Earth. Vulnerable encompasses species that are “threatened”, “endangered”, or “critically endangered”.
12% - The make up of total species classified as vulnerable. http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kruger/people/projects.php Kruger People and Conservation Projects http://www.sanparks.org/tourism/reservations/default.php?unit=26 Kruger Tourism http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kruger/conservation/services/default.php Kruger’s Conservation Mission Kruger national Park
