Top 10 animals in danger of extinction
Snow leopard
: this species is threatened by the invasion of its habitat by humans: China, Pakistan, India, Nepal. Living in a setting like the Himalayas has not prevented their number from falling to less than 5 thousand. Their skin is also used in trade and they feed on farm animals at times, so they are hunted when this occurs.
Tiger
: its population has diminished by more than 60% due to human invasion of its habitat. Currently, subspecies have disappeared from the Caspian Sea, Java, south of China (only alive in zoos) and Bali.
Red tuna
: in serious danger of extinction, measures are being taken to limit fishing it, since the sushi boom has targeted this fish. Overfishing has reduced its population by 85% in recent years, endangering this species that was so plentiful in the 60's
Javan rhinoceros
: hunted especially for the properties of its horn used in traditional Chinese medicine and as decoration. There were only about 29 of these animals in the island of Java, Indonesia, in 2012
:(
Asian elephant
: mainly endangered due to deforestation of their habitat and to poaching to obtain the valuable ivory of their tusks. Currently ivory trade is prohibited, but it is still practiced on the black market.
Vaquita porpoise
: it lives in the Gulf of Mexico, and in 2012 several organizations counted only 200 of these small, beautiful porpoises. Its habitat is very small and fishing with nets is making it disappear. This species does not exist anywhere else on the planet.
The
mountain gorilla
could disappear completely by 2025. The disappearance of its habitat caused by logging companies and, most of all, once again, poaching. More than 190 park guards have been murdered in the National Park of Virunga, where most of these animals live, an indication of the struggle for their preservation.
Irrawaddy river dolphin
: a singular inhabitant of sweet water in Southern and Southeastern Asia, especially concentrated in the Mekong (Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos). It dies due to elevated salinity in the water, the short life span of offspring, contamination in the area and the methods used to fish the recently famous panga fish. In 2011, only 85 of these animals could be found.
Sumatran orangutan
: Hunting and sale as pets and the large palm oil industries are the reasons for its critical situation. These consider the orangutan as an enemy of their crops and kill them without pity. These ape can only be found in Borneo and Sumatra.
Baulan turtle
: a species of sea turtle that is in serious danger of extinction along with the leatherback turtle. Although they increasingly attract tourism, accidental fishing, water contamination and hunting for their shells, meat or eggs has nearly decimated these animals. After 150 million years on the planet, they may not survive the effect of humans.
There are numerous species currently in danger of extinction. Most of them are caused directly or indirectly by man: climate change, destruction of their habitat, illegal hunting
