1 PROJECT OF 6 V FORM SCHOOL 1173 MOSCOW GUIDANCE - MARKOVA S.A. ANIMALS IN DANGERPROJECT OF 6 V FORMSCHOOL 1173 MOSCOWGUIDANCE - MARKOVA S.A.
2 AIM OF THE PROJECTEnglish language skills training: vocabulary, writing and speaking activities;to give more attention to the needs of animals, in our project to : panda, whale, tiger, elephant, arctic bear and others;to make the school audience acquaintedwith the World Wildlife Fund, WWF.
3 WORLD WILDLIFE FUNDWWF's mission is the conservation of nature. Using the best available scientific knowledge and advancing that knowledge where we can, we work to preserve the diversity and abundance of life on Earth and the health of ecological systemsThis is a mascot of the WWF
4 Why is this species important? Panda habitat is found at the top of the Yangtze Basin, an ecoregion shared by both pandas and millions of people whose ancestors have utilized the region's natural resources for millennia. The survival of the panda and the protection of its habitat will ensure that people living in the region continue to reap ecosystem benefits for many generations.
5 Emblem of hope for a nation and global biodiversity Common Name: Giant panda; Panda Géant (Fr); Panda gigante (Sp);Scientific Name: Ailuropoda melanoleucaHabitat: Temperate Broadleaf and Mixed ForestsLocation: Southwest China (Gansu, Shaanxi, and Sichuan Provinces) to the east of the Tibetan plateau.Population: Approximately 1,600 individuals in the wild
6 BackgroundThe giant panda is universally loved, and of course has a special significance for WWF as it has been the organization's symbol since it was formed in Today, the giant panda's future remains uncertain. This peaceful, bamboo-eating member of the bear family faces a number of threats. Its forest habitat, in the mountainous areas of southwest China, is fragmented and giant panda populations are small and isolated from each other. Meanwhile, poaching remains an ever-present threat.
7 PANDA HABITAT MAPWWF is trying to re-link these fragmented blocks of panda habitat with forested corridors so that pandas can move across these "islands" and find new food sources and mates when needed.
8 Giant pandasGiant pandas are about 5 feet long from nose to rump, with a 4-6 inch tail. A large adult panda can weigh about pounds, with males 10 percent larger and 20 percent heavier than females.

11 Whales, dolphins and porpoises Whales, dolphins and porpoises are succumbing to new and ever-increasing dangers. Collisions with ships and entanglement in fishing gear threaten the North Atlantic right whale with extinction, while the Critically Endangered Western North Pacific gray whale is at serious risk because of intensive oil and gas development in its feeding grounds.
14 Facing a multitude of hazards Alarm is also growing over other hazards including toxic contamination, the effects of climate change and habitat degradation.
15 What WWF is doingIn order to help secure the future of the world's whales, WWF is developing an ambitious conservation programme for endangered whale species and populations.
16 GREAT WHALESeven out of the 13 great whale species are still endangered or vulnerable after decades of protection.
17 Whales in the Wild.It's illegal, but it still happens: commercial whaling Despite a moratorium on commercial whaling and the declaration of virtually the whole of the Southern Ocean as a whale sanctuary, each year over 1,000 whales are killed for the commercial market.
18 Wildlife : In the Path of the Tiger The tiger, largest of all cats, is one of the most charismatic and evocative species on Earth; it is also one of the most threatened. Less than 4,000 remain in the wild, most in isolated pockets spread across increasingly fragmented forests stretching from India to south-eastern China and from the Russian Far East to Sumatra, Indonesia
27 Why is this species important? With 20-25,000 polar bears living in the wild, the species is not currently endangered, but its future is far from certain.Why is this species important? Of all of the wildlife species in the Arctic, the polar bear is perhaps the most fitting icon for this ecoregion. Its amazing adaptations to life in the harsh Arctic environment and dependence on sea ice make them so impressive, and yet so vulnerable.
