Title: ANIMALS IN DANGER


1
ANIMALS IN DANGER
  • PROJECT OF 6 V FORM
  • SCHOOL 1173 MOSCOW
  • GUIDANCE - MARKOVA S.A.

2
AIM OF THE PROJECT
  • English language skills training vocabulary,
    writing and speaking activities
  • to give more attention to the needs of animals,
    in our project to panda, whale, tiger,
    elephant, arctic bear and others
  • to make the school audience acquainted
  • with the World Wildlife Fund, WWF.

3
WORLD WILDLIFE FUND
  • WWF's mission is the conservation of nature.
    Using the best available scientific knowledge and
    advancing that knowledge where we can, we work to
    preserve the diversity and abundance of life on
    Earth and the health of ecological systems
  • This is a mascot of the WWF

4
Why is this species important?
  • Panda habitat is found at the top of the Yangtze
    Basin, an ecoregion shared by both pandas and
    millions of people whose ancestors have utilized
    the region's natural resources for millennia. The
    survival of the panda and the protection of its
    habitat will ensure that people living in the
    region continue to reap ecosystem benefits for
    many generations.

Emblem of hope for a nation and global
biodiversity
  • Common Name Giant panda Panda Géant (Fr) Panda
    gigante (Sp)
  • Scientific Name Ailuropoda melanoleuca
  • Habitat Temperate Broadleaf and Mixed Forests
  • Location Southwest China (Gansu, Shaanxi, and
    Sichuan Provinces) to the east of the Tibetan
    plateau.
  • Population Approximately 1,600 individuals in
    the wild

6
Background
  • The giant panda is universally loved, and of
    course has a special significance for WWF as it
    has been the organization's symbol since it was
    formed in 1961.Today, the giant panda's future
    remains uncertain. This peaceful, bamboo-eating
    member of the bear family faces a number of
    threats. Its forest habitat, in the mountainous
    areas of southwest China, is fragmented and giant
    panda populations are small and isolated from
    each other. Meanwhile, poaching remains an
    ever-present threat.

7
PANDA HABITAT MAP
  • WWF is trying to re-link these fragmented blocks
    of panda habitat with forested corridors so that
    pandas can move across these "islands" and find
    new food sources and mates when needed.

8
Giant pandas
  • Giant pandas are about 5 feet long from nose to
    rump, with a 4-6 inch tail. A large adult panda
    can weigh about 220-330 pounds, with males 10
    percent larger and 20 percent heavier than
    females.

Whales, dolphins and porpoises
  • Whales, dolphins and porpoises are succumbing to
    new and ever-increasing dangers. Collisions with
    ships and entanglement in fishing gear threaten
    the North Atlantic right whale with extinction,
    while the Critically Endangered Western North
    Pacific gray whale is at serious risk because of
    intensive oil and gas development in its feeding
    grounds.

12
Old dangers persist, new ones have appeared

14
Facing a multitude of hazards
  • Alarm is also growing over other hazards
    including toxic contamination, the effects of
    climate change and habitat degradation.

15
What WWF is doing
  • In order to help secure the future of the world's
    whales, WWF is developing an ambitious
    conservation programme for endangered whale
    species and populations.

16
GREAT WHALE
  • Seven out of the 13 great whale species are still
    endangered or vulnerable after decades of
    protection.

17
Whales in the Wild.
  • It's illegal, but it still happens commercial
    whalingDespite a moratorium on commercial
    whaling and the declaration of virtually the
    whole of the Southern Ocean as a whale sanctuary,
    each year over 1,000 whales are killed for the
    commercial market.

18
Wildlife In the Path of the Tiger  
  • The tiger, largest of all cats, is one of the
    most charismatic and evocative species on Earth
    it is also one of the most threatened. Less than
    4,000 remain in the wild, most in isolated
    pockets spread across increasingly fragmented
    forests stretching from India to south-eastern
    China and from the Russian Far East to Sumatra,
    Indonesia

Why is this species important?
  • With 20-25,000 polar bears living in the wild,
    the species is not currently endangered, but its
    future is far from certain.
  • Why is this species important?Of all of the
    wildlife species in the Arctic, the polar bear is
    perhaps the most fitting icon for this ecoregion.
    Its amazing adaptations to life in the harsh
    Arctic environment and dependence on sea ice make
    them so impressive, and yet so vulnerable.
