Barbary macaques : threatened and unique.

Barbary macaques : threatened and unique.

Posted Wed, 05 Dec 2018 00:00:00 GMT by JW. Dowey

How can you describe the threats existing to species, both large and small? Using the highly-threatened primates, we can perhaps see how they have contrived to exist until the current time. Then we can better understand just how we can prevent factors simply wiping them from the face of the earth, often through ignorance, lack of care, prejudice and of course the universal profit motive. Conservation begins in our minds, but demands much more than that.

From Myanmar, through the Congo to the Atlantic forests of Brazil, we are neglecting our rainforests, but temperate forests are also suffering, often from pest influences as global warming really takes hold in certain regions. How to help prevent a treeless future - as always, take these pieces of well-informed, well-rounded and interesting advice.

The extinction of small and large, plant and animal is a daily event now, as climate change increasingly joins the other anthropogenic influences on the species of our planet. Mapping the possibilities and modelling the effects is now finally helping out with the problems, but we still have to conserve, and quickly.

Can we persuade sheep farmers to let in the dingo, so that kangaroos can stop noshing all the delicate vegetation? Now there is further evidence that the natural control of herbivores transfers nutrients around the whole landscape. The dingo seems to be a prime conservator too.

How will we view the current conservation crisis in the future. Tigers, like it or not, are at the forefront of poaching and habitat preservation. We will be judged on whether this is an oversight in counting Indochinese tigers or a genuine result of conservators who struggle to maintain the world’s great rainforests and often die in the attempt. Armed poachers are matched rarely in firepower by rangers and wardens, so protection here may involve more than patrolling. The cameras need to reveal faces and the legal profession needs to get busy on very heavy punishment for those who operate for the ugliest of all motives - greed.
