Wildlife Conservation Courses
The generation of the 70s grew up hearing little about endangered species. We knew about the ill-fated dodo of course. The dodo, we were told, had been discovered by man a long time ago (in 1598) – and within 80 years of that discovery, the poor, defenceless creature had become extinct.
Of course the dodo’s demise was preceded by many other species before it. Since primeval times, creatures have been dying out: the Cave lion, Mammoth, American camel, Giant beaver and Ground sloth all preceded the Irish Elk. Then came the last dwarf elephant... And so it has continued throughout human history. These species disappeared mainly because of excessive human hunting, and in addition, in more recent history, habitat loss.
Today the list of endangered species on our planet cannot be summarised in a neat little paragraph – no one can keep track of the precious varieties of creatures that are quietly slipping away, never to be seen again. We can list those at the top of the list – Arctic polar bears, tigers, Giant pandas, Magellanic penguins, Leatherback turtles, Bluefin tuna, Mountain gorillas, Javan rhinos – and learn that all these species are dying out because of man: man poaching, man over-fishing, man developing natural habitat...and man-induced global warming.
