... sing between 250,000 and 500,000 skins per year. As supplies dwindled (crocodiles), prices rose and so did the profitability of hunting. Even after protective laws were enacted, the profit incentive encouraged large-scale poaching and smuggling of illegal skins by middlemen servicing the tanneries and leather markets. By the middle of the 1960s crocodile hunting had left many species critically threatened, including the American crocodile near to extinction. Today the world market for crocodilian skins is about 2 million hides per year. Some of these come from licensed, controlled hunting and some are harvested from the captive populations on farms and ranches. These skins are considered ...

... racterized as a nest parasite because it because it replaces the eggs of another species with eggs of their own , allowing the other species to incubate and raise their young. Their increased numbers have had negative effects on the reproductive successfulness of many forest-dwelling birds.

A man named James Saunders documents one remarkable example of how changing large expansive areas of the birds of the wheatbelt of western Australlia as a result of fragmentation. He s ...

- Wetland Policy - 1,967 words
Wetland Policy Introduction The issue of wetland conservation and policy has long been an issue of controversy among interest groups and industry. When observing the number of endangered or threatened species that inhabit wetlands it is apparent that there is a pressing need to conserve them, especially when the leading cause of species loss is habitat destruction (Nowlan and Jeffries, 1996). There is currently in place a system of policies and laws which culminate to create a relatively effective means of enforcement, however, through the lack of a single Act which pertains to wetlands there continues to be inadequacies within the system. Though the federal government has released the Feder ...
