The coastline was jagged and odd, different from any other of the shores he had been to (Vazquez 15). After a strenuous two hour walk he eventuallty reached Havana, the capitol of Cuba (Vazquez 8).

Land and Resources Most of Mali consists of low plains broken occasionally by rocky hills. In the southeast the Hombori Mountains rise to 1155 m (3789 ft), and in the southwest the Bambouk and Mandingue mountains are separated by an area of sandy lowlands north and northwest of the Niger River, which cuts an arc across Mali. The northern third of the country lies within the Sahara. In the west is a part of the Sahel, a semiarid transitional zone between areas of savanna and the Sahara desert. C

Nature abides by the survival of the fittest rule, shown in Design, by Robert Frost.

The blighted flower is innocent in t

Cheetahs For my vertebrate animal I chose the Cheetah. The Cheetah or Acinonyx Jubatus is an endangered species. They were once found throughout Africa and Asia, but are now only scattered throughout Eastern Africa and a small region of Southwestern Africa.

Poaching Oratory We are pushing a hundred species a day, four species an hour, into evolutionary oblivion, says Richard Swift. In one month 3,000 species will be gone. These animals are butchered for their skin, feathers, tusks and internal organs, or taken as cage pets. These animals, once in abundance are killed in mass numbers and are becoming extinct or endangered at an alarming rate. This devastating loss to the eco-system could threaten the existence of human beings, and ironically we ar
