Why Should We Worry About The Species On The Endangered List? Abigail Hernandez Slide 2 Habitat Loss Definition: When a natural habitat is no longer able to support the species present. Three of the mayor types of habitat loss are: Habitat Destruction Habitat Fragmentation Habitat Degradation Slide 3 Habitat Destruction Habitat destruction is usually deforestation or any other way that humans directly destroy any type of habitats. Slide 4 Habitat Fragmentation This usually happens when a road, dams, or any other man made thing comes between a habitat. This makes finding food and mates hard for some species. Slide 5 Habitat Degradation Is the disruption of the ecosystem with pollution or an invasive specie. Slide 6 Endangered Animalsand Plants At this moment there are about 400 different animals in the United States that are on the endangered list. Not all animals and plants that are endangered are on the list. Some scientist believe that about 100 different species go extinct every day. Slide 7 How does this affect us? Most of our resources come from the environment. So if all we do is take all of the resources and not replace them with others we end up with less and less of it. So by destroying the environment and not doing anything to save it we are destroying our selves. Since about 40% of our medicine comes from different plants and we have only explored around 5% of them. Slide 8 How can we help? The easiest way to help preserve our ecosystem and all of the species in it is by helping keep our neighborhoods clean and our nearby wild areas. Dont forget to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. By doing this we produce less trash that might end up in someone's habitat.
