Most people are not fully aware of the impacts human development has on our non-human counterparts. Moreover, many environmental scientists are not aware of all of the day-to-day injuries and mortalities wildlife incurs. This is understandable as it requires a considerable amount of involvement in rescue and rehabilitation activities to catch even a glimpse of the problem. I have been involved in these activities for several years and am not only interested in all aspects of the issue, but also sharing this information.
This is a series of entries describing unintentional damage and threats to wildlife based on human activities and artefacts. Please note these blog posts are not intended to be exhaustive analyses of issues, nor complete proposals for resolution, but rather, concise introductions for the purpose of eliciting further contemplation and study. That being said, in the spirit of scholarly discourse, please provide any feedback or corrections as appropriate.
