Министерство иностранных дел РФ Средняя общеобразовательная школа при Посольстве РФ в Лаосе Проектная работа по английскому языку Тема: “The Fragile existence of Lao Wildlife” Выполнила ученица 6 класса Баннавонг Нина Руководитель Сиразиева Л.В. Вьентьян, 2009
The aim of my presentation to show how beautiful and unique our wildlife is; how people are cruel to it. Laos wildlife is really in danger nowadays and if people don’t take any steps to protect it, wildlife will disappear someday. So I would like to draw public’s attention to the endangered species of Lao wild animals that are close to extinction.
The fragile existence of Lao wildlife
Wildlife Law Protected speciesManaged species It is illegal to hunt protected species (elephants, tigers, bears) that are naturally rare. Managed species (pigs, deer) reproduce more frequently and can be harvested by rural villagers.
The Tigers The Tiger is an endangered species and it faces several serious threats. In Laos lonely tigers have been confirmed in resent years. Illegal trade of tiger prey and of tigers (selling their skin or bones for medicine) is threatening their survival in Laos. There are Less than 20 tigers in Nam Et – Phou Louey today.
Marbled Cat Marbled Cat is not well known elsewhere in Asia and in Laos seems to occur primarily in mountain evergreen forest at altitudes higher than 1000 meters.
Primates Macaques are the most common type of primate in Laos. Their numbers are declining due to excessive hunting and trapping for as food and as pets.
Rodents Occur in groups in forested areas. The spines on their bodies are used as protection from predators. Now hundreds of them are being traded from the wild to farms to supply porcupine meat for restaurants.
The Sunda Pangolin It has scales that cover almost the entire body. The scales are believed to have medicinal qualities and it is heavily trapped and traded as a result. Population have declined by 90%. Now it is facing extinction.
Humans have been hunting wild life for subsistence for thousands of years. But today hunting technology has improved with guns, steal snares, and flashlights making it easier to hunt more wildlife much more quickly. Not all hunters involved in illegal wildlife trade are Lao citizens. Some come from neighboring countries.
If hunting and trade are not controlled through law enforcement, it will eventually eliminate most wildlife in Laos. What can people do to conserve wildlife in Lao PDR? Please, follow the Law. Do not buy or sell wildlife! We hope with this presentation we’ll draw attention to wildlife that still survive in Lao PDR!
