Select an endangered or threatened species from one of the links provided in this session and investigate the reasons for the decline of this species. The main objective of the paper is for you to assess the condition of the species using scientific sources. You must state in your thesis sentence, in the first paragraph, if the condition of the species is getting better, worse or is staying the same. To make this evaluation you will need to find multiple scientific sources using the SRC databases like EBSCO Environment Complete, EBSCO Academic Search Complete, and JSTOR. See the rubric in the syllabus for information on how the paper will be graded
Answer the following questions in your paper:
What are the habitat requirements for the species?
What are the reasons why this species is in decline?
What measures are being taken to help this species recover?
What nonprofit groups and governmental agencies are involved in the recovery effort?
Have any laws or programs been established to protect the species? In your paper you must evaluate if the efforts that have been undertaken to save the species are sufficient to ensure that the species will still be with us in the future. Sum up your main points in the conclusion and give me your assessment about the condition of your species.
