Final Project: UNESCO Paper • Resource: Appendix A • Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper assessing the ecological property you chose for your final paper. Identify the ecological uniqueness of the plant and animal life in your chosen property and address the following: o Describe the diversity of life forms found in the area. o Describe the biological interrelationships among the life forms in the area. o The human intrusions threatening the area. o The protections that exist to safeguard and preserve the area. o The efforts that have been made to further this preservation. o What an individual can do to help preserve the diversity of the area. o What additional measures to insure the preservation of the property would you propose? o What will be lost if intrusion goes unchecked? Appeal to the biological diversity. • Format your paper, in-text citations, and references according to APA standards. • Post your paper as a Microsoft® Word attachment.

Hello, I've started on your paper, but I was wondering if you had to turn in a rough draft or outline for this assignment. If you did, I could use part of that information. If not, no worries. Thanks.

I did have to do a rough outline. Plus she gave us an Appendix listing critical points to include. Here it is.- I have copied and pasted the whole thing.

Describe the diversity of life forms found in the area.

 

25 species of lemur including , Golden Bamboo Lemur which is on the critically endangered species list, Aye-Aye lemur, mouse lemur, pygmy lemur,. Rosy Periwinkle plant, which can only be found in the Madagascar Rainforests. RoseXXXXX, XXXXX, and nine plant families found nowhere else, but Madagascar. The tomato frog, Tenrec, and the nocturnal "Fossa" or Malagasy Civet. 258 bird species, 38 of which are endemic, one of which is the Blue Coua. There are half of the worlds population of 150 species of chameleon in Madagascar. Insects are Comet Moth, Pill Millipede, Flatid Leaf bugs. Elephant Birds, which are now extinct.

Describe the biological interrelationships among the life forms in the area.

The Aye-Aye lemur feeds on insect larvae that it finds by tapping on a tree with its long middle finger. The "Fossa" or Malagasy Civet is a carnivore and feeds on everything form reptiles to smaller animals, including chickens form nearby villages. The Tenrec feeds on insects and is much like a tiny, colorful hedgehog. The Pill Millipede eats decaying leaves and other dead plant material.

The human intrusions threatening the area.

 

Illegal logging is being permitted in Madagascars Rainforests. Some animals are being hunted to extinction for their unusual characteristics, such as the elephant bird, which went extinct about a hundred years ago, and was hunted down by humans and also experienced habitat loss. The Fossa is endangered for being hunted down by local villagers as vermin, though it is the largest predator in Madagascar. The Aye-Aye is endangered because of habitat loss and local superstition that it is bad luck has caused it to be targeted and hunted down by local villagers. Deforestation has caused many animals, reptiles, and other creatures to experience loss of habitat.

The protections that exist to safeguard and preserve the area.

 

The Rainforests of Madagascar did not have many efforts taken to protect them or preserve them for many years. Which is how some animals they used to have were hunted to extinction. The Government took to promoting tourism in attempt to save rainforests and boost economy.

The efforts that have been made to further this preservation.

 

Rainforests are being declared National Parks and tourist areas, in which the Agence Nationale pour la Gestion des Aires Protégées, the manager of all parks, shares part of the revenue with the local villages and communities that are around the parks. UNESCO declared the Rainforests of Atsinanana to be World Heritage in order to preserve the remaining Forests and life. Create effective control of agricultural encroachment and illegal logging, hunting and mining.

What an individual can do to help preserve the diversity of the area.

 

Use of technology and science to help conserve and study remaining animals in Madagascar. Identify and categorise animals, plants, and insects and reptiles in the Rainforests in order to keep track of them. Donate to the BodDiversity Fund created to help Madagascar implement its plan to triple the protected area coverage, which currently is 2.7 percent of Madagascar's land.

This paper looks fantastic!!!! I cannot thank you enough! Smile I will go over it and personalise it. You must have worked so very hard on this. I am giving you a bonus too, cause I read this paper and saw how much effort went into writing it. Thank you so much!!! :D

I was wondering, do you think I should re-write some if it in my own words?

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Ok. I hit accept, but it is not registering on my questions page, though it registers right above here. And I tried to put in a bonus and the screen said they are having service issues or something like that. So, I am going to wait five minutes and try again. You are getting a bonus though. :D
Thank you so much! You shouldn't have to re-write any of it unless you just want to add your own 'voice' to the tone of it. I'm glad you liked it.

I still cannot add a bonus. It keeps saying there is a problem on the site. Maybe you could mention it to justanswer so they can get it fixed. I will keep trying to add the bonus though. You deserve it.
Customer reply replied 6 years ago

HI. I changed some of the report into my words, but I still got a notice that I will not receive grade for this as it is not my origianl work. I dont understand.

 

I'm not sure why. I wonder if the paper was searchable because of posting on this website? It was an original paper, I can assure you of that.
