Since no more then 100% can be urban, (as a process) Urbanization is coming to an end Population: 55,000 http://voices.yahoo.com/the-industrial-revolution-urbanization-15854.html Negative Effects Public health issues
Lack of sanitation
High disease rates
Factory waste
Air pollution
Water pollution
-poverty, crime, drugs, violence
Wildlife Damage
Cause of Urbanization Industrial Revolution
More opportunities (jobs)
Migration http://il.water.usgs.gov/nawqa/uirb/pubs/journals/AFS087_116_Fitzpatrick.pdf US 1800 only 5% of population lived in cities
1920 about 50% of population lived in cities
Throughout 19th century, US was urbanizing 1854 Big Problem *Effects on wildlife* Turtles Gone Missing!! Threatened in state; declining quickly-->risk of being endangered
Species impacts health of the local environment
Represents the loss of wetlands
Wetlands sucked out, roads take over; population of turtles decrease

“By preserving their habitat and therefore [the turtles], we are preserving ourselves, too.” -Maya

-Maya Linson You Can Help! Turtles ≠Pets
-dont take them home
take phote, report sighting
Blanding's Turtle Look out when on the road -travels miles for nice home; often crosses road Secure your garbage -keep turtle egg eaters (racoons& coyotes) out PROTECT THE TURTLES &THE LOCAL ENVIRONMENT!! -more people that help conserve, preserve and restore, the more areas the turtles will have to call home
