Transcript of Endangered Animals

Europe North America South America Africa For thousands of years, the wildlife and people of Africa co-existed in balance. Africa boasts perhaps the world's largest combination of density and "range of freedom" of wild animal populations and diversity. In the 20th century, wildlife faced escalating pressure from a growing human population and its effects. The balance was upset. Approximately 100,000 species of insects have been described from sub-Saharan Africa. It has been estimated that the African insects make up about 10-20% of the global insect species. Insects Africa is the richest continent of freshwater fish, with about 3000 species Fish Approximately 166 species are endangered, about one-fourth of which are at a critical stage. Almost all of the amphibians of Madagascar (238 species) are endemic to that region. Amphibians There live (temporarily or permanently) more than 2600 bird species in Africa Some 114 of them are threatened species Birds Mammals More than 1100 mammal species live in Africa. 221 Mammals 174 Birds 48 reptiles That adds up to and outstanding 1,139 166 amphibians 130 fish 56 insects 2 worms 1 clam 16 crustaceans 19 corals 260 plants endangered species in 166 amphibians 221 Mammals 56 Insects 174 Birds 10 African endangered Animals 1 5 4 2 3 9 6 7 8 10 African Wild Dog:

The diversity of climate and vegetation in South America account for the unusual animals of South America. The amazing rain forests of the Amazon Basin, the dry Atacama Desert in Chile and the snow capped mountain peaks and volcanoes of the Andes abound with interesting animals. Although some populations living in tropical, sub-tropical and temperate regions may be able to migrate closer to the poles to avoid the effects of global warming, this is not an option for species that already live close to the poles. When the climate warms, it destroys their habitat and leaves them with nowhere to go. Polar bears are one example. They survive by hunting seals on the sea ice for part of the year, before going further inland until the next hunting season begins. As the Arctic ice begins to melt, species like polar bears are starting to suffer, and they are not alone. Many other species that depend on the cold temperatures in the Arctic and Antarctic may be at risk of extinction.
They need to build up enough fat on their bodies during the hunting season to survive the rest of the year. Antarctica Australia Australia has approximately 2009 non fish vertebrate species (that is, animals with a backbone outside of the fish group). Are endemic, which means they are not found anywhere else on the planet. In Australia there are approximately 312 mammal species, of which 25 are introduced and 19 are presumed extinct (they have not been seen for almost 50 years), which leaves about 268 native species still living. Mammals There are approximately 793 bird species in Australia, of which 32 are introduced and 21 presumed extinct, which leaves 740 native bird species still living. birds There are 797 species of reptiles, of which 2 are introduced and none are extinct, leaving Australia with 795 living native species Reptiles: We have 33 endangered mammal species and 21 classified as vulnerable, which means 20% of our native species is threatened. There are 35 endangered species and 63 classified as vulnerable. This means 13% of our native bird species is threatened. We have 12 endangered reptiles and 40 vulnerable species. North America is a land of varied landscapes that stretches from the Arctic in the north to the narrow land bridge of Central America in the south. The wildlife of North America, like its habitats, is diverse. Within the continent of North America classification only, there are 380 different species that are classified as Threatened. North America represents the most philanthropic nation in the world, but yet witnesses wildlife disappearing right on their homelands. Every one of them needs protection and recognition. Europe has 344 fresh-water fish species, about 200 of them endemic Fish: There live 75 species of amphibians in Europe, 56 of them endemic. Amphibians: The list of European birds is about 800 species long (445 of them breeding in Europe) Birds: European mammal fauna consists of 270 species, 78 of them endemic to Europe (15% of them are threatened with extinction and 27% have been identified as declining). Mammals: As the largest, most populated and fastest growing continent on Earth, Asia may be the region of the world where the most animal species face extinction due to conflicts with humans. The rapid development of land for use by humans all over Asia poses a serious threat to many animal species, and many Asian governments do too little too late to protect their own environments. There are some areas of improved awareness about the risks of overly rapid expansion, and the protection of many iconic species - like Tigers and Giants Pandas - may benefit from focused conservation efforts. But many other animals are also threatened, and they don't always get the attention they need to ensure their continued survival. 83% of our mammals 45% of our birds 89% of our reptiles 93% of our frogs Also, about 92% of our plants.
Plants of course are an important part of the habitat that animal species depend on.
