We should work together
to protect our world for
WILDLIFE & PEOPLE
- Urban development:
Planners and developers can build in greenbelts and habitat
corridors that will allow wildlife to use existing blocks of
habitat more effectively.
- Mining and oil:
By taking proper steps at the opening of a mine or drilling
a well, habitat loss can be reduced and habitat can be restored
when the mine is closed or the well capped.
- Ranching and farming:
Ranchers can practice low-impact grazing techniques and proper
grazing management. Farmers can monitor pesticide use and capture
and treat runoff before it contaminates habitat. Both ranchers
and farmers can use water conservation techniques.
Cities can treat and recycle waste-water and many solid wastes.
Factories and industries can treat water and air to reemove
pollutants before they leave the siite and escape into the water
we drink and the air we breathe.
- Every Citiizen:
Should become informed about local wildlife habitat issues.
Recycle and dispose of pollutants properly, and practice good
