The recent times have shown alarming increase in the extinction rates and the speed at which the endangered species are falling victim to the human activities. Considering this, need is felt for creating awareness, and taking solid steps in this regard to promote eco friendly activities and protect the wild life for activities as such that endanger them directly. This paper aims at highlighting the sources of problem, their consequences, and the solutions finally.
Polar bears: The polar bears are characteristic feature and species of North Pole. With ever rising temperatures and melting ice glaciers, these polar bears are directly exposed to it and included in the list of extinct species. An inter related process which includes the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by human activities namely the transportation means and industries which are increasing the global temperature and directly affecting the North Pole temperatures.
The rapid destruction of ozone layer is another means of extinction of animals and birds. Some animals like polar bear need severe cold temperatures and piles of glacier to survive. With increase in temperatures the toll falls directly on the sensitive creatures.
As the population grows, the mankind expands its grip on different lands and areas which were once thick forests and house of wild life. As a result of all this, the wild life is getting compromised and their resorts are getting minimal every growing day. The population growth means more demand for land and apparently more forest cutting.
The population of the earth is rising at a staggering rate and has surpassed a seven billion digit quite easily. With population rise arises a natural demand for space and human population utilization. Hence a direct threat and sword at the forests. With increase in population means increase in the demands, increase in the resources exploration and naturally disturbances of the natural stratosphere for fulfilling

At the same time it makes them feel that what they have done so far with the natural system was wrong and unethical. These unethical acts are basically helping them to know what they should do and what they should not. And the word “extinction” is the major reason for this kind of consciousness.
-The endangered species face problems at the hands of nature. -They also face the problem at the hands of human beings. -Endangered species are important to us as they can provide many benefits. -They also have an effect on the whole environment and mostly concern with the stabilization of the ecological systems.
Biodiversity Conservation Name Course: Instructor: Date: Abstract Biodiversity refers to the variety and assortment of various life forms in the environment. This includes the variety of plants and animals in various ecosystems including marine ecosystems, forest ecosystems as well as grasslands.
It is clear that geographical ranges majorly depend on several structural and physiologic adjustments undertaken by a species. In certain cases, the species finds these adaptations quite suitable in a place that is different from the location where the species evolved in the beginning (Niche and habitat - MarineBio.org).
This branch of philosophy entails at conserving natural resources (Jardins 14). Plants and animals are living things and part of human life. They should be associated with human beings’ guiding principles and also moral and ethical values. Human beings need to check on their actions and impacts on the environment.
Study shows that by the year 2050, more than 50 percent of different species will be subjected to extinction (Barr 24). It is indeed terrifying but also factual the world is in the midst of the most horrible wave of species extinction since the terrifying extinction of the dinosaurs, centuries ago.
