The type of movement...Read More...

Hey everyone today I'm going to be viewing more on “What is internal and external land form and their process?”. Mountains can be formed in different ways that involve (inside) internal or external (outside) natural forces. The movement of tectonic plates is known as plate tectonics. Plate tectonics is an interior natural force because it happens inside the Earth. When tectonic plates collide, they raise the Earth's crust.Geological agents and process are classified as internal and external...Read More...

This post accidentally appeared on comments now everyone can see it here. Hello everyone, today I would like to elaborate more about human-wildlife conflict (HWC) in a concentrated and impactful way. In agricultural regions where human population growth begins to encroach on animal territory .e.g The elephant, which is the largest mammal to walk on earth need to eat enough roots, grass, fruit and bark to sustain their large bodies. This means that their large bodies animal can destroy poor...Read More...

Samuel s work have made me understand that their certain organization that supports trophy hunting also allows illegal hunting of wildlife...Read More...

For centuries human activity such as hunting and encroachment or invasion have made life difficult for large species of all kind,leading to evolution trend towards the smaller size than normal.The remaining Large species are now targeted by hunter and poachers which result to decrease of large species.Naturally such selective process would dictate large species grow smaller over time ,or else face a greater threat to the species itself. Reduction of human wildlife conflict can be done...Read More...
