The marking helps wildlife endangered species

The wildlife tagging allows different research, study and preservation.

Endangerment is a complex issue that involves the ecosystems where species live and interact together. Measures are being taken on specific issues of endangerment, but without protecting the environments where endangered species live, these efforts will be in vane.

Loss of Habitat

Earth is in a constant state of change, causing wildlife habitats to be altered and modified. Natural changes usually occur gradually, causing minimal stress on individual species. Humans have caused changes on our planet to occur at a much more rapid pace, leaving little time for wildlife to adjust to their new circumstances. Rapid habitat loss is the single most primary cause of endangerment. Most of the planet has now been modified by human activity, a trend that continues to accelerate.  The consequences may be disastrous.
Humans are depleting the soils of the earth, eradicating its forest and causing the extinction of fish and various marine animals.  Wild lands are quickly being converted to housing and farmland.  Space once home to plants and animals are being eliminated at an alarming pace.
Animals and plants that face overexploitation may become endangered or lost forever. Unrestricted whaling during the 20th century is a prime example of how overexploitation brought many species to the brink of extinction.
Today wildlife is threatened by illegal trade in animal parts.  Bushmeat demands for elephant tusks, rhino horns, tiger bones and other animal parts drives a growing underground of illegal activity.  Asia and other regions contain a strong market for animal parts used in traditional medicines.
Introduction of Exotic Species
Native species are plants and animals that exist in a specific ecosystem, having been a part of that environment for an extended period. Well adapted to this local environment they are accustomed to the presence of other native species within that ecosystem. Exotic species, on the other hand, are interlopers. Exotic species are often introduced by way of human activities, whether accidental or intentional. Interlopers are viewed by native species as foreign elements. Exotic species may seriously disrupt the fragile balances of an ecosystem and may result in unintentional but disastrous consequences.
