Can you identify these animals and could they be extinct?

Wildlife and plants are being plundered by humans as well as being threatened by invasion of their natural habitat. It has been seen in the UK with the demise of hedgerows affecting our indigenous birds and mammals.

It is vital that endangered or threatened species are actively conserved for the future if they are to avoid becoming extinct.

These pages highlight some of the issues faced by us all and if we do nothing then the world will suffer along with the human race.

 

Conservation

Conservation, preservation or sustainability  

They all mean different things to different people and are applied in different ways.

Conservation means protecting and managing and is applied to resources and living things that exist now. It includes preservation activities.

Preservation implies resources that are retained and “preserved” for the future such as a relic.

Sustainabilty  is probably the most important and realistic concept for the human race to understand. Implies resources are capable of regeneration and are renewable, replaceable or recoverable.
