What types of wildlife are there in North Carolina?

Mainly near Hiddenite?What types of wildlife are there in North Carolina?
Go to, which is run by the National Wildlife Federation, and enter the zip code for the area you are interested in. It will generate a list of the birds and animals that live in that area.

Volunteering at a wildlife center- it says I need 2 references?

What would be some good references that I could get that would help me get the ';junior wildlife keeper'; position? Would it be like volunteering at an animal shelter? I'm only 13, by the way and applications are due by May 3rd, so I have quite an amount of time.

Thanks for helping :)Volunteering at a wildlife center- it says I need 2 references?
Yes, I would think any prior experience you would have, or can acquire, working with animals would be good. Are they asking specifically for references from past volunteer experience or just for general character references?

Why does wildlife need protecting?

im doing a geography project on protecting wildlife. How to protect it. Why it needs protecting and what charities do protect it. Thanks for your answers it would be great for websites to thanks.Why does wildlife need protecting?
Why does wildlife need protecting? It must be protected or it will be hunted to extinction. Or pollution will kill it off.Why does wildlife need protecting?
Wow you are doing a great project.And the topic is a very noble one that of protecting wildlife!!

Wildlife includes all non-domesticated plants, animals, and other organisms. Domesticating wild plant and animal species for human benefit has occurred many times all over the planet, and has a major impact on the environment, both positive and negative.

Wildlife can be found in all ecosystems, Deserts, rain forests, plains, and other areas鈥攊ncluding the most developed urban sites鈥攁ll have distinct forms of wildlife. While the term in popular culture usually refers to animals that are untouched by human factors, most scientists agree that wildlife around the world is impacted by human activities.

Humans have historically tended to separate civilization from wildlife in a number of ways including the legal, social, and moral sense. This has been a reason for debate throughout recorded history. Religions have often declared certain animals to be sacred, and in modern times concern for the natural environment has provoked activists to protest the exploitation of wildlife for human benefit or entertainment. There is another term that of wildlife management that is closely related with protection of wildlife....Wildlife management is a general term for the process of keeping wild species at desirable levels which are determined by the wildlife managers. Wildlife management can include game keeping, wildlife conservation and pest control.

Wildlife management has become an integrated science using disciplines such as mathematics, chemistry, biology, ecology, climatology and geography to gain the best results.

Wildlife conservation aims to halt the loss in the earths biodiversity by taking into consideration ecological principles such as carrying capacity, disturbance and succession and environmental conditions such as physical geography, pedology and hydrology with the aim of balancing the needs of wildlife with the needs of people.Most wildlife is concerned with the preservation and improvement of habitats though increasingly reinstatement is being used. Techniques can include reforestation, pest control, nitrification and denitrification, irrigation, coppicing and hedge laying.

Game keeping is the management or control of wildlife for the wellbeing of game birds may include killing other animals which share the same niche or predators to maintain a high population of the more profitable species, such as pheasants introduced into woodland.

Pest control is the control of real or perceived pests and can be for the benefit of wildlife, farmers, game keepers or safety reasons.

In the United States, wildlife management practices are often implemented by a governmental agency to uphold a law, such as the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Many wildlife managers are employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and by state governments.

In the United Kingdom, wildlife management undertaken by several organizations including government bodies such as the Forestry Commission, Charities such as the RSPB and The Wildlife Trusts and privately hired gamekeepers and contractors. Legislation has also been passed to protect wildlife such as the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. The UK government also give farmers subsidies through the Countryside Stewardship Scheme to improve the conservation value of there farms.

Hope these facts are useful.ALL THE BEST!!!
The most practical reason is that all living things, from grass, to pikas, to humans, are connected. Removing one species from the food web can mess up the delicate balance. For instance, Einstein is thought to have said that if bees went extinct, humans would follow four years later.

From an evolutionary perspective, each species has taken thousands or even millions of years to become what it is now. Yet we manage to wipe out all those years of adaptation in such a short time.

Or one could say that every animal was specifically created by God, and is therefore worthy of our protection.

Then of course, many people appreciate wildlife for aesthetic reasons, and simply do not want to see beautiful creatures disappear.

Some groups that advocate protecting wildlife are World Wildlife Fund, National Audubon Society, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, and National Wildlife Federation. And there are many others.
Wildlife, in my opinion, needs to be protected but controlled as well. The ecosystem in every place makes life possible. Scientists have studied the chain of events which directly or indirectly affects our survival as well. My answer is an attempt to emphasize the importance of wildlife instead of narrowing down to pure entertainment. I am not fond of the skunks walking around in flocks. I have no idea how they benefit the ecosystem but I assume they play a role in it. If only we could control their reproduction so there were enough but not too many.....
the need to save the wildlife are that they are also as important as the trees. to save the wildlife we should build more wildlife sanctuaries,zoos,national parks etc........and not only wild animals if we even see a dog near our houses that is the street dog in any kind of problem we should do our part of helping it if it is in our hands.........GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR PROJECT DUDE!!!!!!!

Wildlife is protected by a selfless, group of people that want to save the wildlife so one day others will be able to enjoy it. It dosn't need to be protected but people want to.
Because many people have nothing better to do, and some get paid large salaries to act like they are protecting it.

Why Do Wildlife Rescue Centres Need To Have A Clear Code Of Ethics Policy?

dude don't you reckon you placed this question in the wrong area?

all the same, i think its because cruelty can be perceived in so many ways that they want to avoid confusion. kinda like child abuse laws. in my ******* country a mere smack on the butt is a form of child abuse. so to make the do's and don't official, they make policies. So there is no mincing of words.

Hope that answered you're question

  • Why are wildlife conservation are important?

    conservation of nature includes conservation of wildlife also dear...we have to focus mainly on this point bcoz animal species n plants r clavarias major ,a tree on the island of mauritious ,at present became endangered only bcoz of excessive hunting of dodo birds [species interdependence]

    nature has created animal n plant species like this . though not every plant is like this they depend on each other for their mineral nutrition plants require the decomposed materials frm animal bodies... n animals food frm plants tht's why i strongly support conservation of wild life for nature's conservation...Why are wildlife conservation are important?

    It will give u all the info related to website

    Karachi'suntreated wastewater from domestic sewage and industrial estates is discharged into the Layari and Malir rivers, which fall into the Arabian Sea. This waste has begun to pose a serious threat to the marine environment, as the channel water is contaminated not only with bacteria but also with toxic chemicals.

    Water pollution also extends a savage threat to wildlife of Pakistan. Animals drink water out of polluted water bodies, ailing ponds, rivers and streams. This sickens the animals and some may even die. Oil spills kill thousands of fish in oceans. Extreme pollution of river Ravi has destroyed the once existing 42 species of fish and the bird life around the river has migrated to other areas. Survival of small invertebrates, micro fauna and flora is also threatened.Why are wildlife conservation are important?
    go back to grade school and highschool to understand

    What can I do with a B.S. in biology that pertains to wildlife and the outdoors in Virginia?

    I am about to graduate with a degree in biology and I can't find any information on places that offer careers in wildlife in VirginiaWhat can I do with a B.S. in biology that pertains to wildlife and the outdoors in Virginia?
    Try the Virginia Dept. of Natural Resources, Texas A %26amp; M University's wildlife job board, Project WILD, the Fish and Wildlife Service or The Forest Service.

    Let me tell you now, a major in Biology will make it more difficult to find a job in Wildlife than something more speciallized like a degree in Wildlife Science or Fisheries. Just be persistant in your search and it will pay off, as more and more jobs in wildlife research and management are becoming available due to the baby boomers starting to retire.

    If these places fail, try the career center at Virginia Tech, they have a great wildlife program and can help guide you.What can I do with a B.S. in biology that pertains to wildlife and the outdoors in Virginia?

    check this site out as well (although they usually want grad level)
    You might also check out environmental consultant firms hiring biologists in your area.
    Try the government sector for jobs with the Forestry, National Parks or Fish %26amp; Game divisions.
    Check with state parks to see if you could be a wildlife educator or something like that.
