    2.)What are the problems in your biome that need to be addressed by humans?
    People are making canals for animals so they can drink on a daily basis without starving. and they are also taking all of the removed soil and putting it in a safe place where it can not damage the environment around it. They can also put fish in the river so the river can thrive with food and water for the animals.

    Problem 2 and its possible solution.
    Another is a lack of water in animals and plants diet so they get dehydrated and die. If this problem is not addressed quickly enough then most or all of the animals and plants in the desert will die. But what can we do you may ask. Well here's what. We can make a special reserve in the desert for plants and give them water every day with irrigation systems so they won't die. And we can build canals for the animals so they can go out and get water on there own so they don't starve.

    Taiga Conservation
    People can conserve the taiga by making national parks out of the biome so that no one can cut down the trees or make factories on the land. We can also create national forest and protected lands within the Taiga. Several years ago in Canada the people did just that. Through their efforts they were able to get the Canadian government to create the Taiga National Park which protects the biome and the wildlife within the park from human predictors. By creating hunting and trapping laws we can also protect all wildlife throughout the taiga biome. Once in Alaska, taiga conservation activists, protested that no one should be able to make roads in the taiga, but sadly their attempts failed. These are just a few ways that we can help the taiga remain the largest biome in the world.
    One major issue in the taiga is acid rain. Acid rain is caused by a chemical reaction that begins when compounds like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released into the air. Once it seeps into the underground water, that water evaporates and then comes down as rain, causing it to wear away and erode trees and stone, and if acid rain happens very, very much it can even wear away buildings. ( especially stone ones.) Acid rain can possibly be stopped by less mining. If we can figure out an alternative energy that can be used to support almost anything such as cars, lawn mowers, or even trains we would most likely be able to stop acid rain.

    A negative impact on taiga is wood harvesting. Wood harvesting is a negative impact because its harms the plants and animals. The negative impact on animals is homes. For birds and some other animals cutting down trees is horrid. It is bad because it's their home, they use trees to live in or on (for birds). They include a length of negative results, from loss of habitat to an elevation in stream temperatures. That can cause fish to die off, but all of them reveal major changes that can take decades to correct. Wood harvesting is also bad because, if you cut down trees your taking the risk that you will kill an endangered species. Many of these animals have a difficult time seeking out new habitats. Because the surrounding areas may be obvious or filled with human habitats.

    One human impact on the Grassland is negitive because humans have changed the landscape. Like for example,farmland. Humans would start to grow crops. Industrialization is another problem. People are building houses and factories. Animals were shot for decorations. Like the elephant was shot for its tusks. Some people would start fires and it would spread qiuckly through the Grassland. The fires take forever to get put out.
    Another human impact on the Grassland that is positive is humans just undoing what they have already done to the Grassland. The goverment is protecting 1% of all Grasslands in the world. Humans are trying to cut down on wildfires. The goverment has stopped hunting because of the extinction of animals. There is only one more American buffalo because of the humans hunting them. The Grassland is a beautiful thing. We have to protect them.

    Another problem in the Grassland biome is overgrazing. Overgrazing is when there are to many animals in a certian area. All the animals in an area take up the fresh air so some animals get sick or die. We can prevent this by moving some animals, a cow for example to a place where there are not as much animals but is still a suitable home for the cow. Everyone should try to help the grasslands, the grasslands are wonderful places and homes to many animals.
