Saving habitats

Many animals are endangered or protected. Two of the reasons cheetahs are endangered are habitat loss and poaching. Forests are being destroyed quickly by commercial logging companies and for agriculture. People are building on the open plains. If you were a scientist in charge of restoring and protecting the habitats of these animals, what actions would you take? Keep in mind that food, water, shelter and space are essential components of a habitat. What would you include in your special habitat? What would you do to convince companies to refrain from chopping down trees? How would you reduce pollution? Look in the St. Petersburg Times for ideas on what to include and what to eliminate from the special habitat. Create a campaign to convince people to help protect the habitat. Write a public service announcement and create a poster or video for your campaign. Share what you have learned here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
