The Hippopotamus Endangered Species Report
The Hippopotamus: Endangered Species Report Jason Wapiennik Mr. Trippeer, Biology January 6th, 1997 The ban on elephant ivory trading has slowed down the poaching of elephants, but now poachers are getting their ivory from another creature, the hippopotamus. For the poacher, the hippo is an easy target. They stay together for long hours in muddy water pools, as many as eighty-one can be found in a single square mile. This concentration is so big it's only second to that of the elephant. Poachers

Endangered Species Study: Jaguars I. The jaguars of Central and South America have been being killed for game and protection. This cat used to have homes around the United States to Uruguay, but ever since the fears of extinction the jaguars have moved to the undeveloped rain forests in Latin America. Jaguars are being killed due to many people fearing for their own lives and many are also being killed to protect cattle. Jaguars do stalk and ambush their prey, however, they rarely ever attack ma

Time To Change
Time To Change The earth and many of its contents, thanks in large part to humans, is deteriorating and it has been for quite a time now. It is overwhelmingly populated with both ignorant and lazy people. In effect, not much is being done to prevent this deterioration. For instance, we are killing off vital animal populations every day. We have caused the extinction or endangerment of numerous species for absolutely no reason other than selfishness. An example is the poaching of elephants. We ar

The Spectacled BearThe Spectacled Bear, or Tremarctos Ornatus, is an endangered species. This rare bear can only be found in a few elusive spots in the world. Many endangered species all over the world don’t deserve the respect and care that they need. That is why many endangered species often become extinct or remain on the endangered species list for the remainder of their survival on Earth. Today, as more species become endangered, more people become involved in their care. Many things are b

Essay By Paul Bleier
Essay By Paul Bleier: William Shakespeare was a supreme English poet and playwright, universally recognized as the greatest of all the dramatists. A complete, authoritative account of Shakespeare's life is lacking; much supposition surrounds relatively few facts. His day of birth is traditionally held on April 23, and he was baptized on April 24, 1564. He was the third of eight children, and was the eldest son of John Shakespeare. He was probably educated in a local grammar school. As the eldes

Cheryl Bowman Mrs. Bembas 2nd. Period English 6 May 1996 The Life of the Great William Shakespeare There are many authors that are widely read. However, none are more universally read and studied than the great William Shakespeare of the late 16th and early 17th centuries. His plays and poems have moved millions of people, unofficially giving him the well-deserved title of the greatest of all dramatists. Shakespeare is the basis for excellence in literacy and theatrical performances. Although o

Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes known as Old Time M
Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes (known as Old Time Music at that time) in the southern Appalachians for several years, It wasn't until August 1, 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee, that Country Music really began. There, on that day, Ralph Peer signed Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family to recording contracts for Victor Records. These two recording acts set the tone for those to follow - Rodgers with his unique singing style and the Carters with their extensive recordings of old-tim

Irony in The Interlopers Irony- The difference between what might be expected and what actually occurs. Irony happens in two ways. One way is when the reader knows what will happen to the character. The other way is when something happens different to what was being meant. Example #1: I’m caught in my won forest land, retorted Ulrich. When my men come to release us, you will wish, perhaps, that you were in a better plight than caught poaching on a neighbor’s land. Shame on you! Function #1

Whats so special about an orangutan Their eyes hold a story that is my
What’s so special about an orangutan? Their eyes hold a story that is mysterious and yet intuitively we relate to them. Just one look into those eyes and you are hooked. The orangutan’s anatomy, geographic range and habitat type, food habits, behaviors, and locomotor patterns make the species unique while sharing some features with other primates. However, currently Indonesia is facing a threat to its orangutan population. Loss of habitat, illegal hunting, and the notorious pet trade all pose a

Why God Hates Fat People Fat... everyone hates it and no one wants to be it. Even when stuffing a turkey you can find Martha Stewart pulling the flit from the birds innards and tossing it into the trash. Fat is such an unattractive commodity in society that we judge our prime steaks by how little fat there is, It even tastes like it looks; Wiggly, soft, squishy, and plain old FATTY. Not even a cannibal would touch your fat behind with a ten foot poaching stick! So with that in mind is it any wo

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

Bears Beware In our world today many animals and plants are loosing their fight against human intervention in their once well-balanced ecosystem. We are all aware of the extinction of the dinosaurs and the dodo birds, however most people do not realize that annually thousands of species of our flora and fauna are now becoming extinct. This on going trend is increasingly threatening our bio diversity and global ecology. To give a specific example of animal depletion I will focus on Canadian bears

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. Cheetahs are threatened by increasing loss of habitat, decline in prey, and increased poaching for fur trade. The Cheetah has a tawny coarse coat with round black spots or “tear stripes” from the corner of the eyes down to the sides of th

The Globe Theatre
The Globe Theatre Among the many famous writers we have studied this year is William Shakespeare. Shakespeare's life was assuredly most intriguing. Seeking answers, we had simple questions we wanted to determine. What were his morals? His passions? His legacy? When studying Shakespeare, we found that his life revolved around the Globe Theatre. Naturally we wanted to see why Shakespeare spent so much of his life involved in the Globe. The first Globe lasted from 1599-1613. Additionally, this stru

Hobsbawm and George Rude that depicts the social history of the English agricultural wage-laborers’ uprising of 1830. According to Hobsbawm and Rude, historiography of the laborers’ rising of 1830 is negligible. Most of what is known by the general public comes from J. L.

Tiger Subspecies I am here writing a report on the sub species of tigers. Many of these tigers will not survive in the next forty years due to the killing that us humans have caused. Tiger sub species have not been as important to us humans as whether or not the species Tiger Panthera tigris can survive either in the wild or in captivity for the next forty years. Nevertheless a great deal of information on the future of the tiger can be learned from a study of subspecies. Which is what my report

Deer The Deer The deer has been around as long as man can remember. It has always been in North and South America, and not that long ago was brought to Europe. The deer has been hunted for centuries by Stone Age man, American Indians, and now modern day hunters. The weapons used to hunt deer have changed as time goes on. They were hunted with rocks by Stone Age man, with spears and hand crafted bow and arrows by the Indians, with guns and still today the bow and arrow by modern day hunters. The

Zoos Are Prisons Rachel Olson English King 4 December 1, 1999 If you have ever stepped into a zoo, you have stepped into a prison in which the inmates are defenseless and innocent, the sentence is long, and the penalty is cruel and severe. Zoos are not made for educational purposes but for entertainment, they do not benefit animals but push them toward extinction. Zoos range in size and quality from cage-less parks to small roadside menageries with concrete slabs and iron bars. (Zoos: Pitiful
