You guys make it seem as though Whites bear no responsibility for the current rate of extinction linked to mankind's overbearing footprint on this planet. Thousands of species of plants and animals have either gone extinct or are on the verge of extinction due to our activities, and no one on race or group bears responsibility for that...it's simply a symptom of the human species to displace all other forms of life around us. Our ability to conform to an ecosystem disappeared sometime around the agricultural revolution.

What I have seen backs up what scientists say - there has a been a general decline in numbers of reptiles and amphibians. Used to see a lot more snakes, for example, roadkilled back in the 70s than you do today.

If a large population of snakes is used to hibernating at this particular location, why not help them out if you're going to close it off? Itz a White thang. Certainly nigs or mexes wouldn't care. Itz our White job to preserve the more attractive species, to blunt the effects of the verminiferous, and to use our brains to tell the difference! Without getting all religious about it. Nature is no more to be worshiped than Jeboo.
Your information is more or less correct. The ideal den will descend 5 or 6 feet down into a rock wall (especially in more montane species) or into the ground, which is usually suitable to provide enough insulation to keep the animals warm during the winter. In such a circumstance, while the temperature outside the den may be freezing or below, the temperature inside the den may be 40+ degrees F...low enough for the snakes to be in a state of lowered metabolic activity (known as brumation, as opposed to hibernation), but still high enough for them to sustain life. I've found den sites here that contained more than 7 or 8 species of snakes (comprising around 50 individuals that I could count), both venomous and non-venomous. As you may be hearing in the media, FL's cold front is causing some problems for the invasive species of reptiles there (i.e. green iguanas, burmese pythons, etc.), which don't naturally brumate due to their natural habitat being tropical, and thus they simply freeze to death.

Mexico City's 'water monster' nears extinction
The axolotl, a key part of Aztec legend and diet, faces new threats



MEXICO CITY - Beneath the tourist gondolas in the remains of a great Aztec lake lives a creature that resembles a monster — and a Muppet — with its slimy tail, plumage-like gills and mouth that curls into an odd smile.

The axolotl, also known as the "water monster" and the "Mexican walking fish," was a key part of Aztec legend and diet. Against all odds, it survived until now amid Mexico City's urban sprawl in the polluted canals of Lake Xochimilco, now a Venice-style destination for revelers poled along by Mexican gondoliers, or trajineros, in brightly painted party boats.

But scientists are racing to save the foot-long salamander from extinction, a victim of the draining of its lake habitat and deteriorating water quality. In what may be the final blow, nonnative fish introduced into the canals are eating its lunch — and its babies.

[snip]

About 20 years ago, African tilapia were introduced into Xochimilco in a misguided effort to create fisheries. They joined with Asian carp to dominate the ecosystem and eat the axolotl's eggs and compete with it for food. The axolotl is also threatened by agrochemical runoff from nearby farms and treated wastewater from a Mexico City sewage plant, researchers say.
Local fisherman Roberto Altamira, 32, recalls when he was a boy, and the axolotl was still part of the local diet.

"I used to love axolotl tamales," he says, rubbing his stomach and laughing.

But he says people no longer eat axolotls, mainly because fishermen almost never find them.

"The last one I caught was about six months ago," says Altamira, a wiry gondolier with rope-like muscles from years of poling through Xochimilco's narrow waterways.

[snip]

On a 9-foot-wide canal covered by a green carpet of "lentejilla" — an aquatic plant that resembles green lentils — Zambrano's researchers test water quality and search for axolotls. The air smells of sulfur and sewage.

pangolins eaten near extinction

Quote:
Pangolins, native to Asia and Africa, are the world's only mammals with true scales made of keratin. Despite international trade bans, pangolin meat and scales still fetch high prices on the black market. Demand is especially high in China and Vietnam, where pangolin parts are used in medicine and served as a culinary delicacy.

We know well which parts they use for "medicine". Those are the same parts you see missing first on an open Coolie housepet meat market.

Considering the mud races as Humans is insanity.

I even struggle with the term Sub-Human because the muds don't kill, steal, rape ... exclusively the Human race aka White race.

Muds are dangerous for every living species in the Planet Earth and surely I apreciate more the Wild Life in Africa than the Sub-Animals that are destroying it with their filth.

Poachers killed a beloved white rhino - inside a French zoo

The poaching is driven by a demand for rhino horns in southeast Asia that has grown nearly insatiable; so much so, experts say, that any living rhino - anywhere in the world - is now at risk of being killed.

Red list: ash trees and antelopes on the brink of extinction

Native ash trees, abundant across North America, are on the brink of extinction as an invasive beetle ravages forests, according to the new red list of threatened species from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

The list now includes more than 25,000 species at risk of extinction and the scientists warn that species, such as the American ashes and five African antelopes, that were thought to be safe, are now disappearing faster than they can be counted.

Half of Canada's monitored wildlife is in decline, major study finds

A new analysis looking at the long-term trends of more than 900 species of wildlife in Canada has found that half of them have seen their populations decline, including several species already listed as threatened or endangered.

The Living Planet Report Canada, released on Thursday by World Wildlife Fund Canada, paints a bleak picture for wildlife in a country that is home to a quarter of the earth’s wetlands, 8,500 rivers and more than 2m freshwater lakes.

Fatal extraction: how demand for hippos' teeth is threatening them with extinction

It seems almost incomprehensible that the desire for an ivory ornament or piece of jewellery justifies the slaughter of a majestic elephant, but as their populations continue to crash, the ever-hungry black market has become creative in order to satisfy its greed. Now, ivory hunters are setting their sights on everything from arctic narwhals to fossil mammoths. But one unexpected victim of this barbaric practice is the humble hippopotamus. A new study says that a rise in demand for hippos’ teeth is threatening the mammal with extinction.

Scientists urge endangered listing for cheetahs


A comprehensive assessment of cheetah populations in southern Africa supported by the National Geographic Society reveals the dire state of one of the planet's most iconic big cats. In a study published today in the open-access journal PeerJ, researchers present evidence that low cheetah population estimates in southern Africa and population decline support a call to list the cheetah as "Endangered" on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List.
