Evidence on practicality of solution
Loggers
· Sawmills and Agricultural users should apply for licences from a centrally administered body
· These uses should be educated in orang-utan friendly practices and subject to regular reviews
· If they are not in compliance their licences should be revoked and fines paid
Forest custodians
· Local people need to be educated about how to care for the forest, inspected regularly and measures put in place to eliminate corruption
Consumers
· Consumers of tropical hardwood and palm oil should be encouraged to decrease consumption or only purchase those products that have been certified so demand for and value of "unfriendly" products on the global market is decreased.

You need to copy the exemplar above and enter information on your endangered animal. You need to think practically how you your solution could be implemented. What steps would need to be taken for various stakeholders to implement the solutions.


Lachlan AMiss Stevenson: Lachie you need to revisit your solution and think about how your solution can be practically implemented. To do this you might think about steps that need to be taken for various stakeholders to implement the solution. You might also consider if this solution has been implemented somewhere else and what practical steps were taken and were successful

Local Residents
  • residents can earn some extra money by patrolling area's around the ghost bats caves
  • hopefully this will stop unwanted guests disturbing them
Introduced Animals
  • foxes and feral cats are eating most of the ghost bat's food making it harder to survive
  • cattle and livestock modify the ghost bat's habitat
Government
  • dedicated old mines to the bat by checking to see is they are structure is still strong and will not collapse before closing it off from the public
  • paying the local's to patrol the area

Disease
  • Haemorrhagic septicaemia, a cattle disease rare among elephants should be concentrated more affectively by scientists as it shows the decrease in the elephant population
Lost of Land (Habitat)
  • Large development projects such as dams, roads, mines and industrial complexes should be contracted to small amounts or moved to other areas not located by this species, the government has to act fast as when the human population increases the Asian elephant population decreases
Hunting (Poaching)
  • The male elephants carry tusks not female and therefore poaching is aimed exclusively at males, this affects the population of the Asian elephant, due to the fact that if the population was going to increase their would need to be a female and a male, but with the decrease of males, it affects the birth rate
  • As well, meat remains a serious problem in many countries as it sells for a good amount of money
  • To prevent this devestating problem, the government in Asia need to issue fines to each poacher and explain that the population of this particular animal is decreasing at a very fast rate.

· Instead of having a million different people looking after the national parks and breeding centers we could have only a few people who do both.

· Fences near roads would be good because instead of warning all the tourists and locals about vehicle strikes (which they still go and do). We should eliminate the chance of the cassowaries even going onto the roads.

Boat owners* Boat owner should be educated on where dugongs habitats are and wher to go slow as well as being aware of where dugongs are mostly located to avoide boat strikes.
Hunting (poaching)
  • Dugongs are sometimes hunted for their tusk and meat then traded but by having the program (CITES) Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora it allows for the person to get an approved licence to trade the animal.
Consumers (products)* Consumers of certain oils and consumers who buy certain asian medicine, hides for leather and bones and teeth should be encouraged to decrease or stop this consuption or buying and chose only products that are marked "animal friendly".

**Poaching:
  1. Poachers kill for the fur, and this is illegal in many countries as it is then transfered onto the black market- there is no reason why poachers should need to kill the Snow Leopard, if they can afford to buy weapons, they can live legaly. Miss Stevenson: This is an economic argument
  2. Some bones are used in asian medicines- Maybe the governments of these countries should artificially make the same materials (if possible).
Miss Stevenson: Also an economic argument is governments could fund research into medical alternatives

Loss of Habitat:**
  1. More people (eg farmers) are moving into Snow Leopard inhabitated areas, and destroying this habitat for new land- the people or farmers or whoever, do not need to invade precious land of the Snow Leopard as the land the originally had would be just as fine, especially if they are grazing cattle and or livestock.

Lack of Effective Protection:
  1. Most protected areas are too small to house even only one leopard- Protected parks and areas need to be expanded, and even call upon some rangers to start up a bigger protected area.

  1. Even if there was an area big enough, the rangers that would be needed would not receive a proper and fair wage from the government as the government is too poor to fund it- the government should raise awarness how? and ask for donations in heavily populated areas.

Forest Custodians
· Local people need to be educated about the Bengal Tigers and their needs. They need to be taught how to care for the forest and are to be inspected by organisational officials to stop corruption between locals. They must be able to stop third parties from intruding into the forest and in return will be compensated from the organisation/government.

Loggers
· Agricultural users and loggers should apply for licenses/ permits to a central government council to be approved, as well as been legitimatised by a conservational organisation (e.g. Project Tiger)
· They must be reviewed often by conservation groups/governmental council to assure regular practise and that no harm is brought to the Bengal Tiger and its habitat.
· If they were to break the set terms and conditions set by government, such consequences like fines and loss licence must be enforces by government officials.

Locals

· Locals who must relocate themselves away from the national parks will be compensated with a reasonable amount of money by the government, or will be offered to help conservation groups to control and sustain parks with a suitable wage.

Ivory hunters
  • Compensation to ivory hunters is not necessary as they are breaking the law.
  • Permits to avoid this should not be accepted as poaching is not necessary. Most illegal ivory trade is to create luxuries humans do not need for a price of an innocent life. This includes foot stools and decoration.
  • Harsh laws need to be enforced to make sure their are no offenders. This includes fake permits and illegal poaching.

Locals

  • Locals should be educated to deal with situations where they are confronted with poachers to say no.
  • Compensation will apply to those who have given up land in order to build facilities such as rehabilitation centres and national parks.
  • Ones that wish to help in protecting the elephants by offering to safeguard and conserve their habitats should be compensated with a substantial wage.

Tourists

  • Brochures and information should be given out to inform the tourists about the threats to the elephants and what they can do to help.
  • Once tourists are clear on what kind of state the elephants are in, they can then start to treat them with more respect and care. This can be done through not literring and contributing to community projects etc.

Farmers: The Amur Leopard usually kills livestock owned by farmers. The farmers regard the Leopard as a pest. What can be done to prevent the farmers from killing the Leopard is to compensate for the killed livestock with payments by the Government to the Farmers.
Custodians: A comprehensive education and public awareness program organized by the Government to help educate the people about the importance of the environment and the survival of the Amur Leopard. They can also pay the people money to look after and protect and defend the Amur Leopard.
Food Sources: The numbers of animals that the Leopard eats have dropped drastically in numbers. The solution is to repopulate the area with Hares, Deer and Wild Boar.

People looking for housing land
-
People who are looking for housing land, and have chose the lynx' habitat, needs to be educated that this land belongs to the lynx' and building on it is not permitted.
- If these people decide to build on this land, and have previously been educated not to do so, their building will be halted, a very heavy fine (US$500,000 or more) will be needed to be paid and their building material, if not relocated within the allocated time, will belong to the government and will be used to help the lynx population.


Locals
- Locals should be educated on how to save the lynx.
Miss Stevenson: how?
- Will also be able to inform the government of any prohibited activity (eg. illegal house building) in that are and might be rewarded for their help.

Hunters

The Iberian Lynx is banned from hunting.
- The hunters need to be educated in what to do when a lynx is seen (NOT TO HURT IT)

Tourist and Locals* Tourist and locals need to be educated to what to do when they see a condor, they need to not feed it or the condors will rely on food people give them and don't learn skills to hunt for food. Great point!

They need to not touch or go near it or the condor might go angry and start attacking you.

Hunters* Hunters who hunt near where the condors live should be educated to pick up their kills when they shoot them down or the condors will eat the dead animal and get lead poisoning from the bullet inside the carcass. Or use bullets with no lead in them thus giving the condors no lead poisoning.Another great point!

Normal people* Everyday life people need to be educated about the condors and how they are endangered and how people are still shooting them down. People from the NPCA (National Parks Conservation Association) should send people to school to educate little kids about the one proud birds which roam the world.

Education
- The locals within the community and in close proximity of the wombat must be aware of it's needs and should be educated on how to respect and act in certain situations involving this rapidly decreasing species
Loggers and Agricultural Development
- The loggers and people who utilsise the wombats area will recieve more then they have ever before whilst still helping ensure the long survival of the wombat, these former habitat ruiners will now have more resources in which can be used for farming or the selling of their products. This is enabled as the farmers rather then competing with the wombat for area or essentisal resources the wombats will be confined to their own area with their desired and required amount of habitat, leaving exposed a vast amount of land in which can be cleared without causing any harm or putting the wombat at risk
- This makes these solutions very user friendly and with cooperation and with systems which have been shown here implemented could in the long run indeed enhance and make a significant change to the short term and long term survival of this phenomenal species

Education
  • People who live near or around areas in which the Arabian Oryx is present should be educated on how to live in harmony with the animal and be taught not to hunt it.
Custodians of the Desert
  • Many locals in disadvantaged areas can find work and a source of income by simply keeping watch on the Arabian Oryx's population and be given the right to arrest or call in someone to arrest a person or a group of persons who have or attempted to kill, poach or capture an Arabian Oryx illegally or without a permit by the local or national government. This operation could either be funded by an independant corporation or by the national government, with several companies sponsering it with extra funding.
Urban developers
  • People who desire to build on land inhabited by the Arabian Oryx should research for nearby areas which are uninhabited by the animal, so that its natural habitat is preserved. If there is no nearby land avaliable, the developer will be allowed to build on a tiny portion of the land, and will be heavily monitered by officals to make sure no harm is done to the Arabian Oryx or its habitat. If harm is done, a heavy penalty will apply.

· The locals and contributors to the money for the research needs to be made aware of what they are donating for
· In being aware they should have to know all of the dangers. This should teach people how to watch out for animals on roads and not to go killing animals without a license can signage be used?
Poaching/Farmers
· The farmers around the area should only be given a license if the Devil is going to harm them in any way or if the Devil is just using the animals to feed how could this be monitored?
· An alternate idea for the farmers is that they could surround their fences with mesh so nothing can harm the animals or the farmers and their families perhaps a government rebate for fencing ..?
