Research is the first way in which scientists and animal rights groups try to preserve endangered animals. Some scientists will track these animals so that they will learn more about how they live and what is causing them specifically to die out.
Then once they learn the problem, then they can figure out a solution. One solution is to provide a safe sanctuary that is similar to a zoo, but it only has a certain type of animal in it and is similar to their home in the wild. This helps keep them safe from poachers or their habitat not being destroyed. Another way that endangered animals are being conserved is to make their way in the wild less violence and safer.
There are several ways that endangered animals are being protected or conserved. One of these ways include the Endangered Species Act signed into effect by President Nixon in 1973. This act prevents endangered wildlife from being harmed, protects habitats essential to survival, and creates plans to raise population numbers. It also provides resources to Native American tribes, landowners, and individual states.
On a global scale, different organizations and countries are creating nature preserves and cracking down on illegal hunting, poaching, and overfishing. Unfortunately, there is a high demand on the black market for exotic or endangered animals and the penalties for hunting, trapping, and poaching are still not harsh enough to prevent it.
