Reasons For Hiring A Plant And Animal Adviser

December 3, 2017 by Martha Cavazos | Comments Off on Reasons For Hiring A Plant And Animal Adviser | Filed in Eco & Organic Business

Plant and animal advisers are a group of professionals who can study an area and find out about the kind of plant and animal species living in that area. They can also study only a certain plant or animal species if that is what you want them to do. 

By today the service of such plant and animal advisers or nice flora and fauna consultants have become quite important especially in the construction field. In the construction field you have to use their service to examine a land before anything else. It is always good to know why you might have to get the services of a group of plant and animal advisers.

To Know What Kind of an Area You Are Dealing with

In construction, before you start to actually build your structures you have to get approval to build those structures. However, that approval is not given to the land if there are some threatened or endangered species living in that land. The only way you can make sure you are not dealing with such a land is by hiring plant and animal advisers to study the land and what lives on it. Once you know if the land is home to such special species or not you can make your decisions about construction.

To Inform the Respective Authorities about Valuable Plants and Animals

If you are one of the nature lovers you can always use the help of flora and fauna surveys and clearly identify species living in a particular land or area. This can help you identify what kind of important species are living there and if they need the protection of the relevant authorities, you can inform them about these species. With the results of the studies done on the land and its species by a group of professionals you have a higher chance of proving to authorities you are telling the truth.

To Keep Track on Certain Plant and Animal Populations

In agriculture, especially, there are times when you need to keep on track of certain plant and animal populations. This is done to make sure your agricultural work is not disturbed by these species. Here again you can hire the services of plant and animal advisers and get them to do a thorough study of the area in question on your behalf. If you want to you can keep them coming and studying the area as long as you need even if it means years.These are the normal reasons for hiring the services of plant and animal advisers.

The Damage We Cause: Effects Of Human Catastrophes On The Planet

Humankind is well known for the damage we do. Hollywood makes a ton of money off thrillers and dystopian flicks that portray eerily possible future scenarios where the earth has either frozen over due to climate engineering failures or is burning up thanks to rapid deforestation. With the acceleration of technological advancement, it becomes even easier to cause more damage and the results are staring us in the face. 

Nuclear Accidents 
Nuclear energy has the potential to supply the entire globe with all its energy needs without making use of any more fossil fuel; however the risks involved in its production have long held back many countries from attempting to experiment with it. Disasters such as the Chernobyl explosion in 1986 and the Fukushima-Daiichi accident in 2011 leaked radioactive materials into the atmosphere and the neighbouring areas, resulting in mass evacuations and several deaths from long term effects. It takes years of environmental remediation Brisbane and dispersal of the toxic materials through wind for the radiation levels in the immediate area to lower enough for any kind of human activity; living in the immediate vicinity is impossible. Not only does it kill all the fauna in the surrounding areas, it will also change the balance of the ecosystems around it, thus causing a lot of chaos. 

Chemical and Oil Spills 
Because so many of the natural resources that we use to generate energy are located within complex ecosystems such as deep underground or in the ocean bed, it causes untold damage to the millions of species in those ecosystems should an accident occur. The 2010 BP oil spill is a perfect example of how crude oil can harm nature. The spill grew unchecked for a long time and by the time experts had assessed the damage and drawn up plans to clear the spill, the oil had already flown with the currents towards multiple coastal lines and killed a lot of marine life. Many different governments had to engage in resource recovery on the beaches as well as in the shallow waters in order to bring back the marine life on which fishermen depended on for their livelihood.

Fire and Gas Releases 
Factories and plants are notorious for having sudden fires due to poor workplace safety regulations and then releasing copious amounts of noxious and toxic gases into the atmosphere. Bhopal, India in 1984 is a classic example of negligence in a pesticide plant: gases leaked out in the night killing over 10,000 people who were exposed to it and making several thousand more fall ill. Not only did the government have to initiate immediate medical processes but they also had to deal with the fall back and long-term consequences as the company responsible for the exposure quickly packed up and left India, leaving the government to clean up the mess.  

Man could well be the worst enemy nature has had – until we learn from our mistakes and right all our wrongs.
