HOW TO CONSERVE WILDLIFE HABITATS
One of the best ways to protect wildlife is by protecting the habitat they live in. Here are some ideas: (Research from Animal Welfare Institute)
Protect Endangered Species
-Keep habitats clean and safe to safeguard the future of all animal species.
-Endangered animals are at a greater risk of going extinct. If they die off the rest of the habit could have problems. For example, if all predators go extinct, the prey animals will overeat all the plants. Then the plants will die off.
-A damaged habitat is not able to help animals live. Then animals will go to new places they don’t belong. Basically, they are searching for a new home and food.
-Wildlife habitat restoration is all about protection strategies. It also means fixing the soil and water.
-Through habitat conservation, plants and animals will live better.
Go for a Plant-based Diet
-Many habitats are damaged each year to make room for cattle ranching.
-Eating less meat will mean we need fewer cattle. This means there will be fewer ranches and more animal habitats.
-Livestock farming also makes greenhouse gasses. A plant-based diet can reduce pollution. Thus, conserving wildlife habitats.
-Invasive species are a threat to animal habitats and biodiversity. They drive native animals to extinction.
-Invasive species can affect both plants and animals. These species need to be stopped so they don’t keep spreading.
-Basically, the invasive species will eat up all the food for the natural species.
Use Eco-friendly Products
-Some products contain toxic chemicals that hurt habitats.
-These substances can cause damage to the ozone layer. Then the earth will get hotter. Too much UV radiation from the sun harms plants and animals.
-Chemical fertilizers also pollute the soil and water.
