Are Africa wildlife animals decreasing?

YOU ASKED


I donít know if they do census for African wildlife animals but do you think they are increasing or decreasing ? If decreasing is there a possibility that most will become extinct like the dinosaurs?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES


Wildlife management authorities regular do census on African wildlife animals and the out look is not good as animals face severe threats from decreased habitats and migrations paths due expansion of human habitations.

Poaching especially of rhinos, elephants, leopards is also contributing to the decreasing numbers of wildlife animals in Africa.

Though most African countries have designated national parks for the wild animals to roam through, most national parks are not fenced and when the animals strays into neighboring farms, the ensuing human vs animals conflict especially where the wildlife animals damage crops or attack livestock - the farmers often hit back with poisoning the wildlife animals.

The wildlife animals that are often casualties of poisoning are elephants, lions and leopard.

Frequent droughts are also contributing to the losses in the wildlife numbers especially the herbivorous like the elephants, buffaloes, rhinos, zebras and hippos. While the big cats still get their food during the droughts, they also suffer from lack of water.
