Today, the world may be scuffling to a surmountable extinction crisis after the dinosaurs were stroked out of existence. Despite this, the United States is alluding to claims of concerted efforts that are underway towards the protection of endangered species. Ideally, as a show of how far these efforts have been successful, thirty-four species have been obscured from the federal Endangered Species Act since the fall of 1970’s as a sign of recovery rather than extinction. Current statistics indicate that there are one thousand four hundred and thirty domestic and oversea species regarded to be under extinction.
Additionally, conservationists have emphasized on habitat preservation cutesy of the establishment of new wildlife refuges and wilderness areas as well as for private and public land use planning giving room for development without inferring with habitat.
Remarkably, certain wildlife conservation organizations are keeping tabs with most endangered species under captive breeding programs; thereafter their offsprings are let out into the species original habitat when the entire breeding process is completed.
Certain government legislation has been formulated over a period of time dating back from the 1960’s that are aimed at protecting endangered species. Under the U.S. 1973 Endangered Species Act which bars any participation of trade in endangered wildlife or their end-products and mandated that federal agencies examine the effect on wildlife habitat. Needless to say, the laws are fundamental particularly to conservationists who use them as a tool to prevent the exploitation of natural habitats. On the international front, collective efforts have been enforced to outlaw the trade in spotted cats and reptiles (crocodiles). Efforts that begun in wake of 1970’s regarding international trade in Endangered Species, where a number of nations were in attendance culminated to the success story in the 1990s.
In any case, the convention led to the prohibition of trade in rhinoceros horn and elephant ivory, bird eggs, and South American parrots. In China, conservationists have been facing with the challenge against containing China’s appetite for the wild game and making the war on poaching as one of the principle priority to curb the menace. Only recently, a Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress reiterates the laws regarding illegal wildlife trade. What transpired resulted into a law in that, a person whose found eating endangered species or purchasing them for other reasons is bound to a punishable jail-term of ten years.
Following this assertion, the law has cleared the ambiguity that existed there before in relation to the interpretation and now the consumers are well aware of what is at stake. Incidentally, China consists of four hundred and twenty endangered wildlife including the panda and golden monkey. With respect to that, consumers who hunger for a taste of wild in China have to think twice prior to having a bite.
Efforts to protect the endangered wildlife is synonymous with various nations, the government of India has laid out some important frameworks concerning the protection of wildlife. As an important initiative, frequent assessments conducted in relation to prioritized species such as rhinoceros and lion have been hastening to the benefit of the species. Budgetary allocation purposely for the recovery programs aimed at protecting the seriously endangered species have been clearly stipulated by the State government. Subsequently, the creation of protected areas in the entire country under the Wildlife Protection Act 1972 has resulted in what is now the protected zones namely, sanctuaries, Conservation Reserves, National Parks and Common reserves for the conservation of wildlife
