Animals In Danger

Animals In Danger Detail
Perhaps the most famous rare animals is the panda. Twenty years ago it was nearly extinct. Now, its numbers are growing again. It's even become a symbol for wildlife conservation. But many other species have been less lucky than the panda. Sonic are already extinct. Today, many more are in serious danger. This is because man hunts them destroys and pollutes their habitat. There is a serious habitat problem because :
After pollution or destruction, habitats take many years (sometimes hundreds or even thousands) to grow again.
Pollution and destruction change the balance of nature. Each species in a habitat (for example, wood, jungle, marsh or forest) needs and helps the rest. If one animal, bird or insect disappears, all the others suffer, too. This is what's happening in the rainforests of South America, Africa and Asia. These are some of the world's oldest habitats. Or they were. Man is destroying an area of rainforest as big as Switzerland every year.
But the problem doesn't stop there. Habitats and animals are disappearing in Europe, too. Since 1947 in Britain, for example...
50% oft he woods have disappeared.
50% of the marshes have disappeared.

95% of the meadows have disappeared. And what has taken the place of these green, natural places? Houses farms, cities, streets, roads and factories. Because of this (and pollution, too) several British species are dying. In fact scientists believe that 30 British animals, fish and birds may become extinct by the year 2000.
The solution : There is only one way to save wild animals and wild habitats-conservation.protecting animals in danger by law
opening more national parks
building fewer new roads

planting more new forests
cutting pollution
If this doesn't happen, many wild animals will soon have just one habitat, the zoo.
