Top 20 most-vulnerable African carnivores

Post by FiReaNG3L » Mon Feb 06, 2006 7:14 pm

World conservation society (WCS) recently published a list of the top 20 endangered carnivores. Sadly, it includes lions and leopards :(

View the whole top 20 list of endangered carnivores.

What can we do to help save them? :cry:

Okay, as a cat lover, my opinion is like this:
We know that cheetahs, leopards, lions and friends are mostly populated in Serengeti national park in Africa (that's what I heard and read). Tis condition is not a problem until the population of African people start to reach the border of Serengeti national park (before the distances from population to park border is 80 km and now, it's shortened till <5 km).

What we can do is only accepting the fact and try to conserve that park as long as we can...because human population must be maintained above all priorities..and of course, if we see it from the population state equilibrium between human and animal, it's not fair because the density of community has drawed to the human population.

So, in other words, we, human have reached wild life border and disrupted the nature equilibrium there..I think, only conservation biologists who keep pay attention in this thing and try as hard as they can to find the best solution for these problem...
Poor me, because I'm not the one of those conservation biologists.. :(

@Fireangel
this report is taken from one of the biologynews article isn't it?? :wink: well, there's so many good articles there and I suggest that we can discuss biology things based on the article there.. :lol:

Just so you know, Biology News Net is my website. I'd love that biology-online folks visit it regularly and use it as their source of news, as I think both websites would benefit from the relationship. In the meantime, I'll post interesting news in the appropriate forums to stimulate discussion!

So, you're the owner..:lol: nice to meet you, then you should introduce yourself in the off-topic discussion then.
Yup, a collaboration between two biology sites is interesting actually..nice site Fireangel..:lol:
