Animals are in danger!
Can you name the animals? dolphins eagle lions buffalo kangaroo elephants giraffes monkeys rhino sea turtle
Where can animals live? rainforests savannas mountains deserts seas and oceans forests
What are the usual habitats for these animals? A habitat is a place where a certain animal is usually found. Example: Seas and oceans are usual habitats for sea turtles.
Let us check 1 Rainforests are usual habitats for monkeys. 2 Mountains are usual habitats for eagles. 3 Savannas are usual habitats for elephants and zebras.
4 Deserts are usual habitats for snakes and lizards. 5 Seas are usual habitats for dolphins. 6 Forests are usual habitats for bears and wolves.
Why are they disappearing? A lot of species of wild animals on the planet are in danger of extinction. Why are they disappearing?
Every ten minutes one kind of animal, plant or insect disappears. If nothing is done about it, over one million species will disappear in twenty years from now. The seas are in danger. They are filled with poison: industrial and nuclear waste. This kills fish and sea animals.
Thousands of animals, for example: seals and dolphins, die in the nets of fishermen.
The tropical rainforests, which are the home of half the Earth’s living things, are destroyed every year.
Hunters kill animals because they can make a lot of money from their skins and meat. Some people hunt wild animals just for “sport”.
The Amur Tiger It is the largest living cat in the world. Today, there are more Amur Tigers in zoos than in nature. For centuries people have hunted the Amur Tigers for their beautiful fur. Once Amur Tigers lived from Lake Baikal to Northern China. Now, only animals live in the forests along the Amur River in the national parks of the Far East of Russia. Farming and growing cities have made their habitat smaller. So their food in the wild has also decreased. ( сокращается )
Let us talk Exchange opinions with your classmate and make a list of reasons why the number of some species of animals is falling now.
Let us check Why is the number of some species of animals falling now? Industrial and nuclear waste kills fish and sea animals. A lot of sea animals die in the nets of fishermen. People destroy tropical rainforests, which are the home of half the Earth’s living things. People hunt and kill wild animals for their skins and meat or for “sport”.
Shocking facts Fill in the sentences with the correct forms of the verbs, use passive structures (be + V 3 / V ed ). Example: In the 19-th century more than 50 million buffaloes were destroyed in America. 1 8 big cats (kill) to make one fur coat. 2 Only several hundreds of rhinos (leave) in Asia. 3 Before 1964 on the Falklands (islands in the Atlantic ocean) 6000 seals (kill) yearly. 4 About kangaroos (hunt) every year. 5 About 2000 elephants (leave) in Kenya now. 6 Over monkeys (catch) every year. 7 In the early 1990s about 300 dolphins and 30 sea turtles (poison) by water pollution every day.
Let us write Use the text as a model and write an article about kangaroos big cats: tigers, snow leopards, cheetahs and lynxes are killed every year for their skins. Skins are used to make fur coats and jackets which are very expensive. A lynx coat, for example, can cost at least pounds. The main exporter of cat skins is South America, and they are imported by the European Community (Западно-Европейская политическая и экономическая организация), the USA and Japan.
; for their skins and meat; fur goods, sport shoes and handbags; pet food; Australia; European Community; the USA, Japan
Let us check kangaroos are killed every year for their skins and meat. Skins are used to make fur goods, sport shoes and handbags. Meat is used to make pet food. The main exporter of kangaroo skins and meat is Australia and they are imported by the European Community, the USA and Japan.
Let us discuss We understand that many animals and birds have to be saved. Think about what we can do to help animals and birds. Use: should/shouldn’t and the words below (fires, rubbish, baby trees, babies of wild animals, rivers, lakes, to make, to leave, to frighten, to plant, to break, to take home, to feed, to keep tidy) 1We shouldn’t make fires in the forests, because fires destroy forests. 2 We shouldn't leave rubbish in the forests. 3We shouldn’t frighten wild animals and birds. 4We should plant trees. 5We shouldn’t break baby trees. 6We shouldn’t take babies of wild animals home from forests. 7We should feed wild birds in winter. 8We should keep rivers and lakes tidy.
