It is not an everyday occurrence that you wake up to find wild bunnies grazing off grass within residential areas. Their natural habitat is the wild. Why then are they being forced out of their natural habitat? Is it environmental destruction, is it lack of care and maintenance of the wild? Is it the destruction of their habitats? Is it overpopulation resulting in unequal or fewer resources or food? Only those who deal with wildlife protection, environmental, population size, natural resources, habitat protection and heritage protection can answer this question?
Wildlife Protection trusts, why have them?
There is a wildlife and countryside act 1981, which is a legislation that is used to protect, conserve, stops the intentional killing, injuring or taking of any wildlife. The existence of the wildlife act ensures that animals are allocated and reside within their natural habitat. It stops animals from going extinct or from being red-listed due to uninhabitable environmental conditions or human-made hazards.
Listed below are the advantages of this act: a). Animals are homed and rehomed; b). Given the best possible environment to survive; c). Reduces the risk of animals being poached; d). Reduces the risk of the unauthorised shooting of animals for game meat or recreational activities; e). Ensures that animals reside in their natural habitat which is conducive to their life expectancy and survival; f). Ensures that animals have dignity and respect; g). Enforces animal rights; h). Ensures animals are not being abused, injured and improperly cared for; and I). Animals are allocated owners, cared for to avoid disease, infections and protected from uninhabitable environments.
The environment and the role it plays in nature conservation?
The environment plays a significant role in nature conservation. Nature survives in an environment that is conducive. The environmental destruction can have a detrimental effect on life and the habitats, which are usually wild animals. The changes in climate can also have a damaging impact on nature and the wild. The violation of animal safety and welfare rights can result in wildlife crime. We currently have the nature conservation trusts, countryside and national parks trusts that are all created to protect the wildlife. They all have different responsibilities in terms of: a). Controlling and protecting the sale and movement of animals; b). Protecting the environment; c). Invasion and possession of endangered species; d). Purchase and use of insecticides and pesticides; e). Granting of licenses, restriction of wildlife trade, animal trafficking and enforcement of wildlife legislation; f). Protection of sites, heritage and areas of national or scientific interests; g). Occupation and ownership of the landscapes, habitats and environments in which animals reside; h). Management and granting of powers to the protection and conservation of wildlife areas and views; i). Allocating of public rights, animal rights or waiver of the reasons; and h). Green peace and environmental protection.
Without a proper and conducive environment, the wildlife will not survive, resulting in a detrimental effect on the nature conservation efforts, affecting the environmental activities and actions taken to protect the wildlife.
The effect on the trusts market?
The lack of proper wildlife protection might result in the transfer of resources from one trust into another. This results in a shift of priorities, focus and changes in this market. The changes might result in power, and dynamics shifts as the market tend to focus on supply-demand factors. The might increase or result in a high demand of the trusts that protect human and animal rights as every living creature or being has a right to life. It might also result in the expansion of the whole market as some trusts are created to avoid crimes to humanity and wildlife, resulting in an upward drive in this market. This can also affect trusts that deal with economies, fair trading and fair competition and resource utilisation.
