· Using REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) custodians of the forests in developing nations can be compensated by industrialised nations for protecting the forest to continue to process greenhouse gasses and provide ecosystems
· There are a lot of areas cleared in Borneo that have not yet been planted. By halting any clearing, land owners will be forced to use the existing cleared land in the most efficient manner. This will ensure economically profitable crops are grown and resources aren’t wasted

The Asian elephant has been dramatically affected due to the logging of their native habitat and the dreadful pet trade; it is also being hunted by poachers for they tusk. Previous studies have displayed that this species has been decreasing significantly as this is predominantly due to the continuous unneeded logging of their natural habitat. There are a lot of areas cleared in Asia, the land-owners will be affected by this change but it will contribute to the increase of crops as well as resources will not be wasted.

· Using Project Tiger to employ “protectors of the forest” from poverty-stricken (inc. homeless) locals in developing countries like India, they can be compensated from the organisation or governments. This allows the tiger to live in an undisturbed environment and the locals to have a new opportunity to improve their economic status.
· Making a clear division between the Bengal Tiger’s habitat and the local people’s by proper fences and patrolling custodians, will make tiger attacks and revenge killings halt. This will cut costs for court cases, protests etc.

  • In order for the African authorities to be able to afford constructing rehabilitation centres and national parks, a substantial amount of money would be needed. This can be achieved through tourism. As people from all over the world come to see this great animal, money is then being handed over to the government to build better facilities. This can be explained when tourists arrive so they know where their money is going. This could be expressed as a mixture of sightseeing and fundraising.
  • The main people this act is going to affect are the ivory hunters. However, compensation is not necessary as they are breeching the law. Poaching permits and any similar way of 'avoiding the rule' should all be removed as hunting for ivory is completely unnecessary for the purpose being used. These include stools, decoration and luxuries humans do not need at a price of an innocent life.

The best way to save money and save the Siberian tiger from the locals would be to make a fence around the boarder of the habitat where the Siberian tiger lives in. This would tell the locals not to go into here as this is the government / Siberian tigers' land. This would also help tell the loggers that this is not an area where they can destroy the habitat. This would also be very cheap for the government and still very effective.
"The Siberian Tiger project" is one of Russia's most successful projects, due to the fact that it has a large amount of land that is sealed off, and only people of the government may go inside. This keeps the poachers out so that the Siberian Tiger can bread and the government has more time to think of a another way to help save the Siberian Tiger.

- The first part of the solution was to breed rabbits and then release them into the lynx' habitat for them to eat. This part is the only part that'd be expected to
need the most money. The breeding facilities, food and shelter for the rabbits would need a fair amount of money. This can be solved by asking the local population to breed and release the rabbits and get paid for it. This would reduce the cost because the amount that we pay them would be miniature, compared to the time, patience and effort the local population would need. The whole idea of increasing the rabbit population would result in even more costs to the economy, but can easily be overcome if they rabbits are raised and released responsibly and correctly, meaning only breeding and releasing an amount of rabbits that are needed.

- The second part of the solution, the fines for using the lynx' habitat land for industrial projects, would need the least money as it would make the government even more money, US$500,000 or more each time someone builds on that land.

- Banning hunting in the lynx' habitat would need no money at all (to enforce the law) but a certain amount of money would be needed to send these people to court. The money needed for this would be covered by the fines they'd pay for hunting. A good example of a person who was sent to jail for hunting wild animals would be the"Longview man" story.

  • Also the people that work at the national park could research how a temperate species has survived in a subtropical habitat. This would help the reproduction of the Red Pandas and to keep the Red Pandas in the National Park from wandering off into farmlands there fore less of the crops that farmers grow are eaten, hich then means the farmer can sell more.

.Using the NPCA ( National Park Conservation Association) to employ the people who normally hunt the condors and other people who want to help stop the extinction of the condors guard the area from poachers and animals that can harm them. So the condor can fly freely, breed freely in a safe and undisturbed environment. The people who hunt the condors can now protect the condors and earn a reasonable amount of money.

. The Goverment should make it the law that the hunters who hunt around where the condors live should pick up their kills or use bullets with no leads in them so the condors wont get lead poisoning from the bullet inside the animal. They could also set up a shop where the condors are selling non-lead bullets for a cheaper price then normal and the money goes to the condors funds.

If the fenced environmental area is put in place this would provide a positive and winning situation for both parties involved. The wombats would have a safe environment and the loggers would have a significant amount of area which would be allowed to log as the wombat is already contained in an area with a sufficient amount of habitat for them to thrive on. This would make this system extremely economically viable as the loggers would receive more money as they are able to implement a label to put on their products which would state the environmentally friendly way in which the product has been produced. This would also provide the loggers with a more significant economic use as they would not have to negotiate and go through huge amounts of paperwork in order to get permission to farm and utilized their desired amount of land
