Endangered Animals

By Neena Arrigo
Cheetah

The Cheetah is Vulnerable (which means they are not yet endangered). The cheetah are the earths fastest land mammal face to face. Numbers decreasing in the wild due to loss of habitat. The Cheetah can now be found in the eastern and southern regions of Africa.
Asian Elephant
Asian Elephant
These elephants are endangered because
of loss of habitat and poaching. There may
be fewer than 53,000 animals remaining throughout Asia and the wild population is decreasing.

Gorilla
The Gorilla are critically endangered because of loss of habitat. The silver back stands on his hind legs and throws leaves and twigs into the air. He then beats his chest with his hands back and forth tearing up the vegetation.


Addax
The addax are critically endangered due to loss of habitat. Addax have broad, flat hooves with flat soles that prevent them from sinking into the desert sand.

African Wild Dog
The African wild dog are endangered. There may be no more than 5,500 African Wild Dogs remaining in the wild. Populations have decreased in the face of human activity and habitat loss as well as infectious disease
.


Cotton-Top Tamarin

The status of an cotton-top Tamarin is endangered. There are estimated to be about 6,000 individuals remaining, including only 300 to 1,000 in the wild. Thousands were trapped and exported to the US in the 1960s and 70s for medical research, which drastically reduced the wild population. Cotton-top Tamarins are found in northwest Colombia.


Eastern Bongo
The eastern bongo are critically endangered. There are fewer than 140 animals remaining in the wild. Eastern Bongos are also known as Highland or Mountain Bongos. The Eastern Bongo is the largest forest antelope, with males weighing upwards of 400 kg.


Lion
The lion is vulnerable. Recent estimates have ranged from around 16,500 to 30,000 animals remaining. Lions are the only cats to live in a large family group, called a pride. A pride can be as large as 30–40 members

Przewalski Horse
Przewalski Horses once ranged across parts of Europe and central Asia. While they are no longer hunted, threats remain and include loss of genetic diversity, hybridisation with domestic horses and extreme winters. Przewalski Horses are social horses and prefer to have company rather than to be alone.
Red Panda
They are vulnerable. There may as few as 10,000 animals remaining in the wild. Threats include hunting (although this is illegal in all countries), poaching and loss of habitat as humans move into Red Pandas’ traditional environments.

Scimitar-horned Oryx
These animals are sadly extinct in the wild, but still remain in the zoos. There has been a long-term decline in numbers because of climate changes (excessive drought) and uncontrolled hunting by people. There have not been any confirmed sightings of Scimitar-horned Oryx in the wild for over 20 years, although perhaps as many as 9000 animals are kept in zoos, safari parks, ranches and public holdings around the world.
Tasmanian Devil
The Tasmanian Devil are endangered.The survival of Tasmanian Devils is threatened by Devil Facial Tumour Disease. DFTD causes tumours around the mouth, face and neck of Devils. The disease develops rapidly and causes the animals to die within six months.
Sumatran Tiger
They are critically endangered. The animals remaining in the wild may number in the hundreds. Threats include habitat loss as palm oil plantations are extended through their natural range, hunting for traditional medicine (although this is illegal in all countries), and loss of prey
White tiger
The White Tiger is a large and powerful animal that can weigh up to 300kg and reaches more than 3 meters in length. Despite the beauty of the White Tiger's fur, it does in fact give these individuals a disadvantage as they are not so easily camouflaged into the surrounding jungle.
Beads for Wildlife
These beads are sold at many zoos. The colours of the beads mean different things.
Black
means The people and life’s journey.
Blue
the sky which provides water to the land.
Green
the land that grows food for the cattle.
White
the milk that nourishes the community.
Red
the blood of the cow.
Yellow

the animal skins.
Orange
hospitality that is offered to guests.
