4) Anti-poaching, protect the elephant tusk, as illegal trade has become a great deal.

1. Project Tiger- An organisation founded in 1973 by the Indian Government. Their objectives include wildlife management, protection measures and site specific ecodevelopment to reduce the dependency of local communities on tiger reserve resources.At present, India has 40 Project Tiger Wildlife Reserves encompassing an area of 37,761 sq km. It is one of the successful wildlife conservation ventures of Indian Government.
2.Conservation Laws- There are 66 different zones demarcated as the protected zones by the Indian Government for the Bengal Tigers in India. Disobeying these laws follows a heavy penalty by the Indian Government.
3. Giving back to the Native People- In many National Parks, new economic incentives give villagers a direct stake in this renowned tourist attraction, with more than a third of revenues from park entrance fees being returned to the local villagers. This marks an alliance with the villagers of their cooperation to help and save the tigers rather than destroying (e.g. shooting) them.
4. Relocation of Landless People- Due to the poverty of countries like India, many homeless and landless people decide to live illegally inside the boundaries of the Tiger National Parks, causing human disturbance to the Bengal Tiger. Now, a resettlement is underway with the aid of the Karnataka Tiger Conservation Project led by Ullas Karanth of the Wildlife Conservation Society.
5. Working with Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI) to Reduce Poaching-The WPSI works with law enforcement agencies in India to apprehend tiger poachers and traders throughout India. WPSI also makes every effort to investigate and verify any seizure of tiger parts and unnatural tiger deaths that are brought to their notice.

What current laws, methods and practices are currently put in place to save the species?
  1. Protected Areas : There have been an increase in the amount of national parks and reserves in Africa.
  2. Ecotourism : Kenya itself earned $50 million dollars a year due to tourists wanting to see the elephant. This money can go towards rehabilitation programmes and national parks where more elephants can be bred.
  3. Trade Prohibitation : One of the most disastrous human activity towards elephants was the trading of their ivory tusks. However, it has now been declared an illegal activity and extremely heavy fines have been put in place.
  4. Captive Breedings : This idea is similar to the rehabilitation centres. They raise elephants within the area so that they can not be affected by human activity such as logging and agriculture. This helps in increasing the numbers and when the population is of a sufficient amount, they are then let back out into the wild to live their normal lives.

Current laws, methods, practices used to help the endangered Black Rhino
· International trade of Black Rhino products is banned.
· Reduce illegal trade; legislations have been passed in the 1990s.
· Many of the remaining rhinos are in fenced sanctuaries, rhino conservation areas and intensive protection areas.
· Monitoring of rhinos has resulted in relocation of them, in and outside the original living area to create new populations.
· Increased efforts are made for breeding of rhinos.
· Education to locals in the area, especially to the people of Kunene region of Namibia.
· There are also many initiative groups such as the: the South African Development Community (SADC) Regional Programme for Rhino Conservation, the SADC Rhino Management Group, and the Southern African Rhino and Elephant Security Group.

1. Breeding Programs in areas which humans cant get to unless they are apart of the breeding program.
2. Make protected areas so people cannot destroy their habitat so they can live peacefully. Destorying their habitat should result in a fine or jail
3. Illegal trade of the Siberian tiger and been growing bigger over the past year as people use their parts as a lucky charm or for medicine. Stop all illegal trades of tiger parts and skin, in result of of not listening to this rule the person should be jailed and or fined.
4. Another way is to re - plant trees in the area where the Siberian tigers used to stay. As this would make them feel more at home.

1. A Disease Management Strategy has been developed for DFTD. This strategy includes five things: Field mapping and monitoring of the disease, and diagnostic research, quaranting populations of Healthy Tassie Devils, Conducting field trials of disease supression techniques, maintaining the biosecurity and genetic diversity of captive Tassie Devils and improving management of captive animals to increase breeding success.
2. Disease-free Tasmanian Devils were taken into captivity in quarantine conditions by the DPIW Devil Disease Project, in order to maintain secure populations.
3. The Tasmanian Devil has been protected under the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 since 2002. While the small amount of current persecution is likely to persist it is unlikely to constitute a major threat unless the Tasmanian Devil population becomes extremely small and fragmented.
4.The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program is working to establish the facts by expanding our understanding of the extent and impact of possible threats to low density devil populations.
5.In partnership with the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources the Program has worked to raise awareness of the threat of roadkill, installing signage in roadkill hot spot areas such as the Tasman Peninsula.
