The big cats are known to have once roamed much of Asia. Poaching and habitat loss slashed the 100,000 tigers that existed just 100 years ago by 96 percent and led to the extinction of four subspecies. As top predators, they are crucial to the ecosystems where they live. The current tiger population is estimated at under 4,000.
The plight of bees in North America is an issue that has entered the general zeitgeist. Most people understand that bees are integral to food production.

Imagine you’re a critical worker in a vital global industry. Despite your best efforts, you can’t meet your quota because you keep losing coworkers. What’s more frustrating is that all industry parties blame each other about why you are losing numbers.
Now Yumingzui is on the verge of extinction. Pollution, overfishing and rising sea temperatures, brought on by global warming, have devastated the supply of fish. Local officials, hoping to invigorate the economy and reduce reliance on outdated industries, have imposed restrictions on fishing and ordered the village to be demolished next year to make way for a luxury resort.

Others have deep anxieties about adopting a modern lifestyle, worried about prospects for a new career and the high cost of amenities like electricity.

But all that competition has a devastating environmental impact. Every year across the country, lawns consume nearly 3 trillion gallons of water a year, 200 million gallons of gas (for all that mowing) and 70 million pounds of pesticides.
Forty years ago today, a sweeping environmental panic that transcended socioeconomic class and political party spurred President Nixon to create the Environmental Protection Agency. Charged with cleaning up a visibly soiled nation, the EPA spent its first 10 years enacting much-heralded air, water, and solid-waste regulations. But under President Reagan in the 1980s, the EPA began to develop the more complicated role it plays today. With the low-hanging fruit largely gathered, the agency passed deeper-cutting regulations and ended up butting heads more with industry.

The same scientists who provided the population viability analysis to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) for the red wolf have sent a rebuttal to the agency, accusing it of "many alarming misinterpretations" in its justification for removing most of the remaining animals in the wild.
Hay, cow muck, flies, and pollen. The country air is full of bacteria and allergens, so you might be thinking that children who grow up around the farmyard are extra vulnerable to asthma and other allergies. You’d be wrong.
