Small pets, rabbits and guinea pigs for example, are happiest in a secure run on a lawn. If you move the run every other day they may even mow the grass for you. They do need a place to sleep so a suitable hutch or den should be included with warm bedding and food and water. Think of your pet as if it was in the wild and give room for exercise, you wouldn't like to be locked up inside all day. Dogs have to be trained if they are going to behave as you would want them to. A piece of soil or area of grass is a convenient toilet even if this is in the middle of your well-manicured lawn.

Plant Conservation Initiative

Low oxygen levels in the polluted water make it difficult or impossible for these creatures to breathe and as a result of the pollution they simply perish from suffocation. The ecosystem upon which wildlife depends for sustenance is destroyed by pollutants, and in some instances entire species are eliminated from a specific location as a result of the pollutants in the water. Even for those species that do survive, the overall population of wildlife is generally reduced and weakened, often with reproductive cycles becoming less frequent and less productive. Water pollution affects wildlife on land by means of a domino-effect, in which not a living creature is not impacted in one manner or another. The availability of clean drinking water for animals from a formerly reliable source is eliminated by pollution, as is the aquatic wildlife that once served as an important link on the food chain for land animals. The once natural balance in population and general health of all wildlife is altered beyond repair, as one species nearly becomes extinct while another grows in numbers that cannot be supported in the long-term by available natural resources. Lastly, water pollution not only affects the wildlife at the location of the pollutants presence but with the earth's natural heating and cooling the pollution is spread to distant locations globally through acid rain. Unfortunately, the affects of water pollution on wildlife that is delivered so discretely and without obvious notice often results in damage to existing ecosystems that may not be assessed for decades. Atlanta isn't the only attraction in Georgia. Acres of untouched land reach out inviting avid hunters into their living forests. The woods in Georgia are full of hunters, some hunched on the ground, some in roughly constructed tree stands, and some in luxurious tree stands that keep them toasty warm while they await their prey Plan a hunting trip to Georgia and you'll visit one of these greatest hunting sites in the southeast.
