Why Do We Have Zoos? Activity Reading Visiting a zoo is an enjoyable activity for millions of people each year, but did you know that recreation is just one of the many reasons why we have zoos? There are five main functions of a modern zoo. These are: Conservation, Reproduction, Education, Research and Recreation. Zoos have made valuable contributions to protecting the threatened wildlife of the earth. If it weren’t for zoos, many species would be extinct today. Zoos give wild animals with NO chance a LAST chance. Conservation:
Zoos play a fundamental role in the conservation of endangered and threatened species all over the world. Aside from breeding endangered animals, conservation consists of the rescue and preservation of existing animals. In tropical rainforests alone, we lose 100 species every day, 4 species per hour, due to tropical deforestation. At current rates, 5 – 10% of tropical forest species will become extinct every decade.

Teacher Tips!
Introduction: Your expertise is needed! "At the present rate of extinction as much a third of the world's species could be gone in the next twenty years." ( World Wildlife Fund )What can be done about this? As Wildlife experts you have been hired by the School District to inform the second grade about this problem. Task: The second graders have been studying animals. They are curious as to what endangered animals are. Our library materials on this subject are difficult for them to read and understand. You are an animal expert and have been asked to teach second grade students about endangered animals. It is important for the students to not only understand the problem but to be a part of the solution. You and two other experts will work together to create materials to help them understand the concept and plan an activity that students can do to help animals.
I. You will work in a team of three students. Brainstorm all you know about endangered species. Then create a list of questions that you need to answer to complete your task. Ideas to consider: What is biodiversity? What is an endangered animal? How does an animal become endangered? What animals are endangered? Where do they live? Are there any in your area? Does it really matter if a species disappears? What is being done to prevent extinction? Does more need to be done? You may have other ideas to add. Use notecards to keep track of the information you collect. You will have two periods in the media center to research and class time to finish your tasks. You may also work outside of school. You will present to the second grade in two weeks.

The world needs to join together to stop thousands of whales, dolphins and porpoises dying, say experts in the US. About 60,000 of the marine mammals are killed every year around the world when they get tangled in fishing nets. Click here to find out about why they get caught Even if they manage to untangle themselves, many still die because of infected wounds.

  • Walking Nature Study Photography Organized Classes
Lorrimer Sanctuary was bequeathed to the New Jersey Audubon Society by Ms. Lucine L. Lorrimer in 1956. The main house, parts of which date back to the late 1700's, is the present visitors' center and Sanctuary office. The visitors' center has an exhibit and lecture room, winter bird feeding station, interpretive displays, hands-on exhibits, and a gift shop, the proceeds of which benefit the Sanctuary. There is a self-guiding trail system that winds through the 14 acres of land. Much of the acreage is second-growth woods (mostly oak, maple, ash, and beech); and small stands of planted evergreens. The trails are open during Sanctuary hours. All plants and animals are protected they may not be harmed, harassed or removed.

pick up trash or donate time and money to programs that help save the endangeredanimals, preservation habitats, or the rainforests. Or perhaps teach people in
Save the Environment
This is my little bit on saving the earth. It might not be much (actually it is not much) but it will be filled with a few environmental facts, links, and my opinions on saving the earth.
I think that it is really sad that our rain forests are being cut down, our air, land, and water is being polluted with trash and harmful chemicals. Our earths precious plants and animals (endangered or not) are being wiped out to few numbers or extinction. Some we have lost forever and did not even know they existed. To me this is horrifying.
Do you know someone who has or has died of a form of cancer, AIDS, HIV, diabeties, or another disease that is incurable? Maybe a friend or a loved one? Well, there are cures in plants for diseases such as these. Perhaps there are plants in the rainforests that can wipe out the disease forever and save millions of human lives. Without preservation of our rainforests and the salvation of animals and plants we may never find these cures.
We need to help in whatever way we can. We need to stop and think about the world and what is happening to it. We need to stop with our busy lives and just realize that there is a world out there that needs our help. We need to stop being selfish and step out of the rat race long enough to realize what is happening. We need to teach our children about love for each other and love for the earth we live in. So someday they can help in their ways as well.
Please think about it. If you do not recycle maybe look into doing that or getting a program started in the neighborhood. Maybe help pick up trash or donate time and money to programs that help save the endangered animals, preservation habitats, or the rainforests. Or perhaps teach people in some way to help save the earth. There are thousands of ways to help the earth. And it does not have to be huge or expensive. IF each person did a little it would be enough. This is all a serious matter that needs action

... Since the blockbuster treatment went on sale in 1998, there has been a marked drop in global demand for animal products used in traditional Chinese medicine - like Alaskan reindeer antler velvet and Canadian seal penises. Bill von Hippel
(Photo courtesy University of New South Wales "The evidence is still merely suggestive," says Bill von Hippel, a psychology professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia. "But it'll be nice if it turns out to be true." From 1997 to 1998, sales of Alaskan reindeer antler velvet, used as an anti-impotence drug in traditional Chinese medicine, dropped 72 percent worldwide. While sales had been down since 1990, the 1997-98 drop was the biggest since record keeping began in 1972, says von Hippel. Meanwhile, sales of the penises of Canadian hooded and harp seals fell by half between 1996 and 1998, and to near zero in 2000, he added. As part of their research, von Hippel and his brother, Frank, a biologist at the University of Alaska, studied trade data on legally harvested species used for impotence treatment in traditional Chinese medicine before and after Viagra went on sale. They limited their focus to trade in animal parts selling for more than $8 to $10 - the price per pill for Viagra.
