The destruction of wild world is the problem of global seal. The growing amount of endangered species of wild animals and plants, the forest cutting down are the results of our planet pollutions and consumption-oriented human nature. And unless people do something the problem of wild world destruction will get even worse.
Today time is running short for the tropical forest. The deforestation is the inevitable consequence of economic progress. The tropical forest is a biological warehouse. Such forests supply the world with goods-hardwoods, rubber, fruits and nuts, drugs and medicines, fragrances and spices – that often cannot be raised in any but natural conditions. Harvesting beyond sustainable limits has already brought some of the tropical forests best hardwoods – Brazilian rose wood, for example, near extinction. It’s estimated that tropical forests, while occupying only 7% of the Earth’s surface may contain half of all life forms. Thus, relatively, few tropical forest species have been studied. Concerned biologists view the squandering of the tropical forests resources as a tragedy.
More over destroying tropical forests can destabilize the world climate. When the forests are burned the carbon released plays an important role in the building-up of atmospheric gases, producing the “green-house effect” which is causing a warming trend of the planet. And the melting of polar ice could raise sea levels and lead to drastic losses of coastal land.
Unfortunately, the present defoliation, motivated by short-term economic benefit, probably will continue unless a reduction in public and official attitudes comes to the rescue at the 11th hour.
Some species of wild animals are listed as definitely endangered in the Red Data Book. For example, at stake is the survival of the world’s last great herd of the black rhino. The black rhino than has survived for more than 700 million years is ready to extinct in most parts of Africa.
Lured by high prices offered for rhino horn, poachers infiltrated every known rhino habitat. Today about 5000 black rhino have escaped the onslaught living in tiny groups that could die or be poached out unless they are immediately protected.
The only major herd of black rhinos left in the world – the several hundred animals living in Africa is now struggling against a similar fate.
So, the development often means the destruction of the natural of rare plants and animals.
The North Sea is in danger of becoming poisoned to death. Millions tones of industrial waste are dumped into it each year. Different chemical elements get into the North Sea, including heavy metals like mercury, lead and highly poisonous chlorinated compounds which can kill fish and make it unsafe to eat.
The disposal nuclear and other dangerous waste – continues to be a problem. Greenpeace the environmental acting group calculate that millions of Britain’s trees are affected by aid rain.
Today Greenpeace organization acts in 17 countries of the world. Greenpeace actions have changed the attitudes towards how we treat the world and put the environment on the world –wide agenda.
The Greenpeace Campaign Report keeps the supporters in touch with what is really happening in the world and what is rarely covered in the newspapers or by other media.
- Exposed the link between air pollution from cars and children’s health.
- Campaigned internationally for the banning of ozone destroying chemicals.
- Protecting endangered species, joining others to end the trade in ivory threatening the Africa elephant.
- Managed to save sea-turtles.
- Reduced the scale of the slaughter of baby seals in Europe and Canada.
- Wan agreements to end dumping of toxic waste into the North Sea. Put an end to the burning of dangerous waste there and fought to stop radioactive discharges into its waters.
- Managed to outlaw the dumping at sea of any radioactive-waste anywhere in the world.
- Stopped the French testing of nuclear weapons in the pacific. Slowed the expansion of the UK’s civil nuclear program.
- Held get commercial whaling banned.
The rescue of wild world is in human’s hands. If we carry on shooting wild animals and cutting down forests for a few more years of mass consumption, we are going to die. We need to rethink our whole way of life. Why should man, who is just an animal have the right to destroy the whole planet?
