Ways to Help Protect Our Wildlife From Global Warming

 There are several organizations that are on the front line in the challenge of helping wildlife cope with global warming.  By donating to these organizations you will help fund relief efforts in several venues. Money will help lobbyist petition the government into making policy changes that reduce greenhouse gases and reduce the scale of global warming. Money will also help in research to find new habitats for species and at the same time help species adapt to the changes.  Funds will assist hands on assistance for wildlife during natural and man made disasters that affect the environment.

There are websites on the Internet that help promote the petitioning of government officials to change environmental policy. They allow you to sign electronically and because there is more power in numbers they will act as a representative for the cause to the government. You can also petition and make phone calls to your local and state officials to stop state practices that cause global warming. Emission standards, green industries, and local proactive actions can decrease the damage to habitats in your city and your state. Create a petition and have your neighbors sign it to show local authorities that you want to change things in your town.

Create wildlife friendly areas in your yard and in your neighborhood. Put out bird houses and feeders in your yard for birds. Many birds have to change the migration route due to forest depletion and global warming. By providing the birds a place to feed and nest, you will help them survive the change in their habitat. Plant trees and support neighborhood project for open areas where wildlife can thrive without the danger of developments or pollution. Educate your neighbors and create neighborhood wide wildlife friendly areas.  Not only will trees and habitat help give the wildlife shelter, it will help with the conversion of carbon dioxide into oxygen.

You can help wildlife and reduce global warming just by living a greener life. Start conserving water by watering your lawn on alternate days or taking a shower instead of a bath. Start recycling or recycle more. Carpool or drive less. If you have a short distance to travel, walk or ride a bike.  Start a compost heap in your backyard so the landfill will have less to burn or bury. Anything to reduce the greenhouse gases is being proactive for wildlife. The less greenhouse gas that goes into the atmosphere will lessen the damage it does to wildlife.
