* Orang-utans are ‘flagship’ species for the conservation of the tropical forests of Sumatra and Borneo
* Orangutans share 96.4% of our DNA, and are one of our closest relatives. They are the largest arboreal (tree-living) mammal on earth. The name ‘orangutan’ derives from the Indonesian/ Malay language, in which ‘orang hutan’ means ‘people of the forest’

You need to copy the exemplar above and enter information on your endangered animal. The key things to think about are how the animal is viewed by humans and how would your solutions be judged by humans. For example,
  • Is your animal a "flagship specie" like the Giant Panda for the WWF?
  • Would tourists be interested in seeing this animal? Why?
  • Would your grandchildren want to see your animal? Why is it important for future generations?
  • Would the general public approve of your solution? Why ... is there something special about your animal that makes it unique and the general public would be interested in it?
If your species is not well known or you can't find any evidence to support your argument, please feel free to change the heading of this criteria to something where you can find evidence.

Miss Stevenson: Alex you need to think about whether Public Acceptablilty is the appropriate heading for your animal .. .the points you raise above are not really related to public acceptability. If you have a stronger argument supported by evidence that supports your solution - feel free to use it. Before you change - please revist my points at the top of the page.

Hawksbill turtles also feed on invertebrates, with a predilection for sponges.

When they dislodge pieces from the surface of the coral, this provides access to opportunistic reef fish to feed.

The Asian Elephant needs a lot of space to survive; people need to consider the Asian Elephant a ‘flagship’ species, whose conservation would help maintain biological diversity and ecological integrity over extensive areas. Sacred but exploited, the Asian elephant has been worshipped for centuries and today is still used for ceremonial and religious purposes. Not only is it revered for its role within Asian culture and religion, it is also a key biological species in the tropical forests of Asia.

  • Dugongs are also more closely related to elephants than any other marine life therefore making them a very special species, however they are the smallest member of the order of Sirenia which make them a very important animal to have in an ecosystem.

  • The White Rhino deserves to be enjoyed by many generations to come as much as we enjoy it today. Why?
  • The meat could quite easily be sold as an commodity if demand is high and so we could make rhino farms.
  • Poachers should not even be making money out of exploiting the animal and so they have no right to create an argument over losing their livelihood.

  • The African elephant is the biggest land animal in the world.
  • Kenya itself pocketed $50 million due to tourism to see the elephants.
  • Due to overwhelming demand in tourism to see the elephants, authorities should explain why they are charging for the tickets, what the elephants are in danger of and what their money can do to save the elephants. This can educate the tourists and therefore be more engaged in this topic.
  • Rehabilitation centres and national parks will not affect the average person as it would be smart to locate it in remote areas. However, for the agricultural farmers, compensation will be put in place if land is disturbed.

· Greenpeace is strongly against the construction of the oil pipeline because it runs right within 800 metres of Lake Baikal which is a world heritage park and the last remaining refuge for the Amur Leopard. They say that it is harder to design a route that would do more damage.
· The nearby residents of Primorye are not happy about the construction of the oil terminal. The risk of accidents because of oil spills is 17 times higher at the current site than if an alternative site at Nakhodka or somewhere in South Primorsky Krai.
Miss Stevenson:This is an environmental point

· The route of the pipeline runs right within 800 metres of the UNESCO World Heritage site. This violates the Russian laws and international conventions of Logging Areas Allocation and the International Convention concerning the Protection of World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

Until 1989 the Mahogany Glider was known as "the animal from Cardwell" (Queensland). For 100 years, it was lost to science, and the skins were collected. In the 21 year period (until today), many people and organisations from all over Australia have been doing a considerable job to protect them, the Queensland Government donated 16 million dollars, to help secure the Mahogany Gliders habitat and environment. Further research and co-operation can help provide a healthier living style for the Mahogany Gliders.

- Two of the Three wombat species in the world are critically endangered the loss of one of these species would highlight that Australians do not care or have enough consideration and knowledge of the environment and would become a generalisations of wildlife organisation all around the world
- The wombat is an iconic Australian figure and once again if the loss of this species was to occur this would revert serious implications and put the label of Australia as a country in which does not care
- But the truth of these two points is that we do care it is just the implementation of these various programs and plans are essential to keeping the Southern Hairy-Nosed wombat alive and continuing the Australian wildlife spirit, and making sure that public acceptibilty is a key focus when doing this.
