Tree huggers- North
We are the wildlife managers named the herbivores;
we manage the entire environment
that we can. We have come to the issue that there
are way too many deer per square mile.
They are destroying ecosystems because they are
eating all of the vegetation off of the
ground which is affecting other species. They are
also over breeding and this may cause
crowding which could affect the health of the
deer's. We have been hearing a lot of
stories and have gotten plenty of complaints about
car crashes near our area.
We are important because we alone are the voice of
the animals and the environment. Day
to day we witness these animals in action and study
them also. Without us wildlife
managers no one would have known the situation that
there are too many deer. We also
maintain and improve the deer population by
This issue affects us in particular because need
to hire more managers to handle the
surplus amount of deer. We also will have to work
more hours to cover all of our areas.
Also we have to make and enforce new regulations and
make sure they are being followed.
We have to keep the wildlife clean and make sure
it's safe for the deer to live in.
We would solve deer overpopulation by supplying
all the doe�'
with birth control. This will
lower the vigorous climbing of the deer population
without the need for hunting them.
Another solution to fixing this population problem
would be hunting. Even though it is violent
and animals are dying it is the quickest and most
effective way to lower it.
An affect that other stakeholders could make
against us would be that if we let people
hunt more it could affect the rest of the ecosystem.
If the deer were to be hunt and the
hunters didn't clean up the deceased body up, and
would make the wildlife we are taking
care of very dirty. Also some deer would probably
not feel comfortable around a place
where there have been killings and would overcrowd
As wildlife managers we arenn't only protecting
the deer we are protecting the
environment around them. "The Chesapeake Bay Program
is planting 10,000 miles of
forested riparian (streamside) buffers in the
Chesapeake Bay watershed to protect the
health of streams and downstream waters like the
Chesapeake Bay from pollution." This is
an example of fixing the ecosystem and helping the
deer at the same time. Also we do this
so that we keep the watershed together and compact,
it will eventually help the rest of the
environment in the long run
