ENVIRONMENTALISTS FEAR FOR SURVIVAL OF SPECIES

The possible extinction of various animal species concerns environmentalists.

Species can be forced into extinction by such diverse factors as cattle grazing, canal and road building and agricultural and pesticide spraying.This was the case for the dusty seaside sparrow, a Florida native, which passed into extinction with the death of a 12-year-old male named Orange Band.
