What are threatened Habitats?
Threatened habitats are areas of land, particularly forests, that are in danger of disappearing. The plants, animals, and birds that live on these lands are subsequently at risk of endangerment or, in extreme circumstances, extinction. There are threatened habitats all over the world, but some of the most well-known are in tropical rainforests. For example the Borneo rainforest is being Illegally logged down
Threatened Habitats; two sides to the story
What is the Government doing?
Planning for conservation districts is the responsibility of local governments, but NGOs, research/education organizations and management agencies all need to be intricate in the effort. At a higher level, conservation districts must also work hand in hand with the central government to prepare a long-term enlargement plan.
Rain Forest Trust
The Borneo Rainforest Appeal aims to secure rainforest habitat vital for the survival of the Endangered Bornean orangutan and pygmy elephant in the wild in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Raising over $1.5 million dollars is a determined fundraising target, but it’s one that we feel is appropriate due to the fact that the lives of important populations of orangutans hang in the balance. Without our support, an unsafe rainforest corridor for seasonal movements of Borneo pygmy elephant is at pending risk of being severed.
The money raised will go towards private properties to create a permanent rainforest corridor. This will ensure the safety of the forest and the wildlife in it.
