Protecting wildlife


Although whatever we do, may be or may not be insignificant but it is vital all the same. We may do just a little bit in making things right but our efforts add up to a lot! In the same manner, protecting wildlife is one of our major responsibilities and we should feel concern towards that.

There are so many ways of protecting wildlife, for instance, their habitat should be protected. Over-grazing, deforestation, farming should be avoided in order to protect their habitat. By protecting habitat, the entire species of the particular animal could be saved together. then secondly, every individual should be a part of conservation organizations, working to protect endangered animals and habitats. By recycling and reusing we can reduce our impact on the environment. We could even take pesticide-free pledge, that is, herbicides and pesticides may keep yards looking good but they are in fact hazardous pollutants that affect wildlife at many levels.

Threat of invasive species should be reduced. We can even help reduce the number of collisions by placing decals on the windows in your home or any other place. Slow down while driving if you see any animal attempting to cross from one side to the other. so when you are out and about, you should keep an eye out for wild life and slow down if you happen to see any. Get involved locally and voice your concerns. This may sound extreme but if you are really concerned then change your career and work for the noble cause of saving species.

Share your zeal and enthusiasm for nature and wildlife with others and encourage them to do the same so that we could this world a better place to live in!

The Ultimate Shark Experience

Do you think you can experience the adrenalin pump associated with deep diving the oceans to study sharks? Sharks are fascinating animals worth researching and studying and this is because of their unique behavior.

Sharks are usually found in coastal regions of the major oceans. Weighing as much as 4 tons and getting to 23 feet in length, they are known for their large sizes. They prey on whales, seals and dolphins. Sharks do not prey on humans, because their digestive system is slow to break down the large amounts of bones as well as fat and muscles in humans.

Humans die when they experience loss of blood from sharks’ bite, and not really from complete consumption or loss whole body parts.


However, these beautiful species are under threat from extinction in the oceans, and conservation work has increased in recent years to protect their species.

There are a number of organizations in the world that work in preserving sharks. These train volunteers in the research, conservation, behavior and biology of sharks, as well as providing shark tourism through ocean deep dives.

It is a privilege of a lifetime to enjoy observing the behavior deep inside water, getting information about their sex, markings and sizes of the sharks. With steel cages lowered into water, you will be surrounded by sharks while in the ocean and relish the presence of these large creatures.

This is one way of participating in conservation work that helps preserve the species of these special animals, while also getting quality wildlife education in the process.
