Animal Anomalies

By: McKenna Hill, Danielle Dowden, Madison McHugh

Animals in their natural habitat are being negatively effected by HUMAN ACTIONS.

"38.5% to 56.1% decline in white blood cell count for Japanese monkeys exposed to radiation from the TEPCO Fukishima Daiichi nuclear accident."

An example of an animal anomaly would be when monkeys in Japan had a smaller white blood cell count, because they were exposed to radiation from a nuclear explosion.

"Twenty-eight years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, it's effects are still being felt as far away as Germany-- in the form of radioactive boars."

Wild boars in the forests of Germany are being hunted, and scientists have discovered that 1 in 3 boars are non-consumable due to radioactivity from a nuclear explosion.

"Looking upstream and downstream from wastewater-treatment plants, we see there's obviously been an impact by some of the chemicals discharged in the waste water."

Frogs in suburban areas were affected by chemicals in ponds and lakes, causing male frogs to host immature eggs. These chemicals were every day products, such as toilet and sink cleaners and ant poison.

In conclusion...

We can tell that humans are responsible for many animal anomalies in our modern society. These poor creatures still living in their natural habitats are having to suffer the consequences of our poor actions.if we work together we could stop these tragedies before they even begin, and that would make our world a much better place.
