Extinction of Plant and Animal Species

  • Support efforts to preserve natural habitats in the United States. Find out which species in your area may be endangered. Contact local chapters of the National Audubon Society or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in your state.
  • Go on ecology tour vacations that raise money for groups and countries to preserve habitats and protect endangered species. These trips help people understand in a direct way why there is a need to protect these unique and beautiful habitats.
  • Avoid purchasing tropical hardwoods like teak, mahogany, and rosewood, which are cut from rainforests and typically not replaced.
  • Support products that sustain non-destructive use of rainforests such as tropical fruits, nuts and rubber. They and other products can be harvested in a sustainable and profitable manner, which will encourage the maintenance of rainforests and support indigenous peoples. For more information on these products, you can write to: Cultural Survival, ATTN: Rainforest Products, 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138.
  • Sponsor native tree planting in rainforests and other parts of the world.
  • Urge your representative and senators to vote in favor of a strengthened Endangered Species Act. This law protects plant and animal species threatened with extinction.
