What Is an Endangered Animal?
An endangered animal is at risk of becoming extinct or t risk of no longer being in existence. Dinosaurs are the largest group of animals to have ever become extinct. Other creatures to have become extinct are dodo birds, mammoths, and saber-toothed cats.
Endangerment of animals is occurring at an alarming rate due to environmental changes, the destruction of habitat, the shortage of food supply, and being hunted. Many of these causes are preventable through education about the dangers of their habits.
Unfortunately, many animal habitats have turned into places such as a subdivision or mall, where humans use. Other animals are being hunted by humans seeking money, not considering the long-term effects of their actions.
Fortunately, many laws are being enforced to help prevent the complete extinction of many species. As with any law, there are people known as poachers who ignore them and will still kill animals for either their fur or meat. Here are some beautiful animals at risk of becoming extinct and ways to help preserve the land they call home.
Many Tigers Are Endangered Animals
Three kinds of the nine different types of tigers are endangered animals. The Siberian Tiger is one that scientists are very concerned about because it may become extinct in the immediate future due to its few numbers left in the wild. There are so few that they classify as critically endangered. There is only one type of tiger that is more endangered than the Siberian Tiger, the South China Tiger.
According to china.org, the South China Tiger is one of the ten most endangered animals worldwide. There are believed to be only fifty-nine South China Tigers alive, and none live in their original habitat, which means they are extinct in the wild.
Bengal Tigers are another endangered animal, but unlike the South China Tiger, they still live in the wild. They believe that there are less than two thousand. That is fewer tigers than people who live in most cities.
Elephants Are Endangered Animals.
There are two kinds of elephants: the African elephant and the Asian elephant, both endangered. There are believed to be around five-hundred-thousand African elephants in the wild, which may sound like a lot, but only twenty-five years ago, there were more than one million. The numbers are decreasing very quickly. That means in twenty-five years, half the elephants that lived have died.
Asian elephants are even more endangered than African elephants. There are less than 50,000 alive, which is only a tenth of the number of African elephants, due to the decreasing habitat and poachers.
Leatherback Sea Turtle
The Leatherback Sea Turtle
The leatherback sea turtle is the world's most giant turtle and the most endangered. It became endangered because humans have taken their eggs as keepsakes. Many people find it neat to find a turtle egg on the beach. Not realizing the consequence, they pick it up. Their ignorance is killing off an entire species. If you see eggs on the beach, feel free to take a picture, but leave the eggs alone.
Another reason they are dying is that turtles mistake plastic items for food. That is why it is essential never to litter. Plastic can get into the ocean. When animals see something floating, they often assume it is an animal they can eat. This has the potential of poisoning, choking, or causing blockages in their intestines. Although both are real dangers, their decreasing numbers are primarily due to the loss of beaches where they can inhabit. The more beaches we humans have to swim on, the less there are for other creatures to live.

There are at least nine different subspecies of leopards. Many of these are endangered, the most endangered being the Amur leopards. There are only forty left on this Earth. They live in the same area as the Siberian tiger, which has also been affected by the decreasing habitat.
Because leopards are some of the most beautiful animals, with beautiful fur, people used to hunt them, which is the primary reason for the limited number left today. The number of Amur leopards left has decreased significantly; it has reduced the odds of the ones left becoming pregnant, causing their population to decrease substantially.
The snow leopard is another endangered leopard. There are around five thousand snow leopards left on this Earth in the wild. A big problem for the snow leopard is that the animals they prey on are decreasing. As their food falls, so do the number of surviving snow leopards.
What Can You Do To Help Endangered Animals
The biggest thing we can do to help endangered animals is to take care of our world. Maybe tigers and leopards don't live where you do, but many animals do. They need protection, just like other animals do. There are many ways to protect animals by taking care of our environment.
Recycle: We need to make sure that we recycle plastic, tin, and paper so that we don't use our world's natural resources. Every time paper is made or a bottle is made, resources from our Earth are used. Some of these resources are found where animals live, and to get to them, we need to disrupt their habitat. By making sure we reduce, reuse, recycle, we allow places where endangered animals live to be protected from being destroyed.
Reduce: By reducing what you use, you can also protect our Earth. One way to do this is, instead of writing on one side of a paper, write on both sides. Also, when you leave a room, reduce the energy you are using by turning off the lights.
Reuse: We should also choose items that can be reused, like a reusable water bottle, rather than prepackaged water bottles. Using reusable containers for our water rather than buying bottled water prevents many of our resources from being used up. Another example uses a towel rather than paper towels.
Plant a Tree: Many animals use trees for shelter, protection, or food. All big trees began as small trees. The only way to ensure there will be big trees in the future is if there are small trees today. You can achieve this by planting trees in your neighborhood.
Join an Adopt An Animal Program: There are many endangered animals in this world; there are also a lot of organizations that help these animals. Many of these organizations allow you to adopt an animal. They won't come to live with you, but you will receive a picture and information on your animal and occasional updates. It does cost money, so you'll have to discuss this with your parents, but they will use that money to find better habitats for that animal and fund research for ways to help that animal thrive in the wild. Worldwildlife.org is one place where you can find animals to adopt.
Be creative; there are hundreds of ways that you can protect our Earth. Feel free to share some of your ideas.

Questions & Answers
Question: What are endangered animals?
Answer: There are seven different stages of concern for animals. Beginning with those considered "least concern" and ending with "extinct" The other stages go in order from:
1. LC - least concern
2. NT - near threatened
3. VU - vulnerable
4. EN - endangered
5. CE - critically endangered
6. EW - extinct in the wild
7. EX - extinct
Some ratings include a conservation dependent between least concern and near threatened. Another status is Data Deficient for animals they are unsure of the population. The rating is based on data they gather on how likely they could become extinct in the future.
Question: How can I help to save endangered animals?
Answer: The biggest thing that we all can do is to protect the environment around us. Of course, you know of "reduce, reuse, recycle," but also stop consuming as much as well. The less we consume, the less that will be used. We do not need all the stuff we have, and the more we have, the more resources are needed to create, construct, sell, and store those items. Also, be mindful of what we do consume. This includes clothes, water, household items, etc.
We also can help them by donating money to or visiting wild animal refuges, which fund the preservation of these animals.
Try to minimize the use of things that kill wildlife, such as pesticides.
Also, stay educated on which animals are endangered, and seek information on how to help that particular animal. Some programs such as "adopt an animal" programs are great. There are other ways which are unique to individual species.
Question: How many tigers are left in the world?
Answer: According to worldwildlife.com, there are 3,890 tigers. They are considered endangered, but fortunately are on the rise.
Question: How many markhors are left?
Answer: In 2015, they went from being "endangered" to being "near threatened," because they only had 5,754 mature adults in the wild. They are increasing, so hopefully the next time they do their evaluation, we will find that they have grown out of the near threatened status according to ICUN.
Question: How many Arowanas are there left in the world?
Answer: The Arowana, also known as the Dragon Fish, is a fish that is worth $300,000, according to the New York Post. This is so in part because it is an endangered animal. Although, I might argue such a fish should not be bought, but rather preserved. Although data of its population has been unknown, it was classified as endangered in 1996 and put on the red list of the IUCN. They did not give a population number, just that "Further taxonomic study is required to confirm the taxonomic status of populations of the species across its range."
Question: How does captive breeding help protect endangered animals?
Answer: Right now, it is in the early stages, and there is not enough evidence to prove this will work in the long run. There are concerns about genetic diversity. Also, some animals do not reproduce as well in captivity such as the Panda. So it only works with certain species. The hope is by breeding them in captivity, they will prevent animals from going extinct. Unfortunately, we will need to wait to see if this works, as there is not yet enough data.
Question: How many snow leapords are left in the wild?
Answer: According to defenders.org, there are 3,500 to 7,000 snow leopards left in the wild, and 600-700 left in zoos. The reason for such a large variation in the estimate is because snow leopards are very shy and it is hard to determine an exact number of snow leopards in the wild. Recently, they have been lifted from "endangered" status to "vulnerable," which means they are in danger of becoming extinct, but they do seem to be repopulated with protection.
Question: What are endangered species?
Answer: Endangered species are animals that are considered at risk of becoming extinct. The biggest cause for this is a loss of habitat. The IUCN often makes this classification. There are several stages on the scale of endangered animals, which include: extinct, extinct in wild, critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, near threatened and least concern.
Question: Are piranhas real?
Answer: Yes, piranhas are definitely real. They do have a worse reputation than what they really are, much like sharks. Some blame President Teddy Roosevelt for disparaging them in one of his best-selling books, claiming that they would eat a man alive because of their love for blood. The only known digestion of a man by a piranha has only occurred when men have been found dead in the water and have been there for some time. Even then they did eat bites, but not a significant portion of the carcass. Even more surprisingly, some piranhas are vegetarians.
Question: How many tigers are left in the world?
Answer: According to WWF, as of 2018, the number of tigers is increasing. Although there is still much more work to be done, right now, they estimate that at least 3,890 tigers live in the wild.
Question: What is lifespan of snow leopards?
Answer: In the wild, a snow leopard can live as long as long as 15-18 years old, although they live much longer in captivity. Some live as old as 20 years old, if not slightly older.
Question: Are giant pandas endangered?
Answer: Giant pandas are currently considered "vulnerable." Technically that means they are not endangered any longer. According to WWF, in 2014 they were moved from being classified endangered to vulnerable because of a 17% increase in the wild population. They hope this number will continue to improve. Despite the news WWF still uses the giant panda as their logo!
Question: How many red pandas are left in the world?
Answer: According to WWF, as of April 2018, there were less than 10,000 red pandas left in the wild. Our hope is that this number will eventually grow.
Question: Which animals in the Maharashtra state are extinct or endangered?
Answer: Some critically endangered birds include the social lapwing, forest owlet, great Indian bustard, and sarus crane. Some of the endangered animals include the greater one-horned rhinoceros, Nilgiri tahr, Bengal tigers, Asiatic lions, black bucks, lion-tailed macaques, and snow leopards. Some known extinct animals include the Bharattherium Exaeretodon, Gigantopithecus, Hyperodapedon, Indian aurochs (Bos primigenius namadicus), Sivatherium, the pink-headed duck.
Question: How endangered is the anoa?
Answer: There are actually two types of anoa, which both are endangered. It is believed there are less than 5,000 in the wild of both species.
Question: How many people in the world are helping endangered animals?
Answer: The answer to this is too general to answer truly. If we were to do a survey, some would say yes they are helping by recycling. Some would say they are helping by not littering. Some would say they are helping by donating to programs.
I think a more important question is, are you helping endangered animals?
Then the second question is, are you teaching others how to help endangered animals?
I would spend less time worrying about what others are or are not doing, and focus on more on the impact that you can make in this world!
Question: How should we save the animals that are facing the danger of extinction?
Answer: If there is an animal you are particularly passionate about you can find different programs where you can "adopt" an animal. The money will go towards helping restore that animals environment and encouraging reproduction. WorldWildLife.org is one that does that. You usually are rewarded with a fact sheet on your animal, a plush animal, and a certificate. You can even adopt a narwhal through them!
If there is an animal in your area that is endangered, find a preserve that houses them. For example, the Florida panther is endangered, but they have preserves you can go visit, which helps them expand their territory and reproduce.
Then of course just taking care of our environment.
Question: Why do we have endangered animals?
Answer: We have endangered animals because species are being threatened either through loss of habitat, poaching, or the food chain is affected either below or above them.
Question: What are endangered species? What consequences occur if they aren't conserved?
Answer: An endangered species is an animal that is in danger of becoming extinct. If humans do not help preserve the species or do things to help conserve the atmosphere and habitat it lives in, then that puts the animal at further risk of extinction. It is possible without the help of humans that the species could become extinct.
Question: What does the term endangered mean?
Answer: It means seriously at risk of extinction.
Question: What happens when all animals disappear ?
Answer: Animals, whether they are big or small, are essential to our ecosystem. Each animal plays an important role somewhere on the food chain. If an animal at the top of the food chain dies, then ones that would normally be killed off by that animal would now be at the top of the chain and would become much more plentiful. The plant or animal right under them on the food chain would dwindle until the animals that are now on top of the food chain had run out of or low on resources until they begin to fight over and kill one another for the remaining resources. This would continue down the food chain killing off more and more species of animals, insects, and plants until everything became extinct. Without animals on the earth, if there were any plants left, there would be nothing breathing out carbon dioxide for them to survive. So eventually everything on earth would die along with the animals and earth would become desolate.
Question: Why are red pandas at risk?
Answer: The red pandas biggest threat is habitat loss due to human encroachment and deforestation. They also are subject to poaching.
Question: Are piranhas endangered?
Answer: They are not currently endangered. Keep in mind that there are actually a lot of different kinds of fish that are considered piranhas. Therefore, there is a possibility of one kind to be endangered, yet others do not. Currently, there are between 40 and 60 subspecies.
Question: How many leatherback sea turtles are left in the wild?
Answer: According to OEW (Our Endangered World), there are approximately 60,000 leatherback sea turtles left in the wild, whereas the WWF claim that there are only 20,000 to 30,000 left in the wild. Both agree that they are considered critically endangered, which is more severe than being classified as endangered. Most of the deaths have occurred in the past twenty years. Fortunately, many areas are working on protecting nesting beaches of these animals. Costa Rica actually has donation-funded beach patrols looking out for these guys.
Question: What topics should you write about if you do a report on an endangered animal?
Answer: I think a good start would be to describe what the animal looks like, what it eats, where it lives, and fun facts about the animal. Then you could write about the population of the animal, whether its population is growing or shrinking, and what things cause it to be endangered. You could end your report about how someone could help protect that animal.
Question: How many endangered animals are left in the world in 2019?
Answer: This number varies as new information rolls in. Although a specific number of species that are endangered is unknown due to continual changes in data, I believe that the website www.worldwildlife.org gives a lot of information on many of these animals. Some of these animals you may never have heard of.
Question: Are lions endangered? Why?
Answer: They are considered vulnerable, which means if their numbers continue to be affected, then they will become endangered. Their biggest threats are habitat loss and illegal wildlife trade. Currently, there are only 20,000 in the wild and the numbers do appear to be decreasing.
Question: What are some cause and effect questions in relation to endangered animals that I can discuss with my class?
Answer: Here is just a short lists of ones I was able to think of:
- the cause of hunting beyond what is legally allowed - the effect that species becomes underpopulated
- the cause of pollution of things such as plastic bags being not properly disposed of - sea creatures confuse a plastic bag for a jellyfish and eat that, then die.
- the cause large subdivisions built in a heavily wooded area - the cause thousands if not millions of animals, insects, and plants lose a large portion of their population. They must move and overpopulate another area, which disrupts the equilibrium of the wildlife, ultimately causing the numbers to eventually decrease due to lack of resources.
- the cause a new foreign species is released in the wild due to someone trying to keep an animal they shouldn't and once the animal is no longer suitable to live in a home, they don't know what else to do with them - the new species brings new diseases other species are not immune to, worse yet if they breed that animal can take over an area causing a different species to suffer as a result.
There are many cause and effects that are too numerous to type. Most are related to loss of habitat and illegal hunting.
Question: What are the different types of endangered species?
Answer: There are several levels of endangered from near threatened to extinct. The IUCN uses these classifications, so that way others are aware of how close to extinction an animal is. The classifications can be broken down as such:
Least Concern - they have a healthy population and do not seem to be threatened.
Conservation Dependent - they are not of high concern, but the IUCN is watching their numbers that they do not dwindle further.
Near Threatened - their numbers are beginning to dwindle, but there is hope that they will be stable numbers in the future.
Vulnerable - their numbers have continued to dwindle, and the IUCN is watching them more closely.
Endangered - the IUCN feels that these animals need to be very closely watched, and active conservation efforts need to happen
Critically Endangered - extinction is a serious risk and the most conservation efforts are placed on these animals.
Extinct in the Wild - there are none of these animals left in the wild.
Extinct - there are no known individuals of this species left in the wild or captivity.
Question: How can we help endangered animals?
Answer: The best way to help endangered animals is to protect the environment around you and become educated about companies who support endangered wildlife.
Simple ways to protect the environment around you is to reduce the waste you use. The more paper/plastic/etc. You use, the more resources needed to replace them. You can choose to use recycled items, so that way new resources did not need to be taken for you to use such items. I also encourage recycling the items you do use. Other ways would be to plant new trees. It may not help animals in Africa, but it will help the animals living in your area.
I love WWF.org website, where it will tell you all about many of the endangered animals and what they do to support these creatures. You can donate to help them by buying stuffed animals or "adopt an animal."
Question: How do animals become endangered?
Answer: There are many reasons why an endangered animal becomes endangered. Most often is due to either loss of habitat or hunting. They may also become endangered if any of the animals on their food chain become endangered. Regardless if they are at the top or at the bottom or a food chain, when one species is affected, every species in that food chain is affected.
There are many reasons why animals lose their habitat, whether it be due to humans using their land for homes or farming, destruction of their land such as deforestation, or a foreign species being introduced in that area and overtaking the resources.
There are also a lot of reasons why an animal may get hunted, whether it be for trophy purposes, use in clothing and other products, use in medicinal purposes, used as food, killing them due to being a nuisance and disturbing their livestock or crops, and any other reason a person may choose to kill an animal.
Question: Why are elephants endangered?
Answer: Elephants became endangered mostly because of illegal hunting, as poachers use the ivory of their tusks.
Question: What was the last animal in 2018 to become extinct?
Answer: This is a near-impossible question to answer since in most cases we don't know the exact moment a species goes extinct. Often there is a certain period of time without seeing the animal has passed before it is classified as extinct. According to BirdLife International, Hawaii's Po'ouli, a bird that has not been seen in the wild since 2004, went extinct since the last bird left in captivity died this year. There are many other wildlife that are now classified as extinct, but it is hard to specify the exact date as to when they became extinct. In March of 2018, the last known male northern white rhino died. There are two females still alive, so although they are not yet extinct, assuming there are no unknown northern white rhinos in existence, they will become extinct soon.
Question: What does reduce, reuse, and recycle have to do with animals?
Answer: The better we take care of our environment, the better our environment can care for our animals. Reducing what we use, reusing what we have, and recycling what we don't need, is a way that we can better take care of our environment. The healthier our ecosystem is, the better animals can flourish.
Question: Why should we protect animals?
Answer: Biblically, God has given us dominion over the animals of this earth, and part of that is a responsibility to take care of them. We are the only ones who can control the destruction of our ecosystem; therefore, we should be doing all that we can to take care of this earth. More than that, for every creature that dies, an entire food chain is affected. Since we are at the top of several food chains, we will inevitably be affected when other animals become endangered or extinct.
Question: Are bearded dragons endangered?
Answer: Currently, they are not on any endangered species list.
Question: What animals are endangered?
Answer: There are so many animals that are endangered; it would be impossible to list every single one. Plus, this list often changes, depending on the status of each animal. Fortunately, some animals begin to multiply and can get off the endangered species list, while others are joining it every day. Just a few endangered animals include the rhinoceros, sea turtle, orangutan, gorilla, etc. Since this list is ever-changing, it is a good idea to check out the website with WWF, because they keep tabs on the most current status of each animal.
Question: Why do we need certain animals? Including ones on endangered species lists?
Answer: Each animal is important in its ecosystem. When one animal dies off or decreases and even increases in number, it disrupts the equilibrium of the food chain. This then affects all other animals and plants in the food chain. Since many creatures and especially plant life are part of more than one food chain, it can have dramatic effects on an entire ecosystem.
Question: What can we do to save these endangered animals?
Answer: The most important thing the average person can do is to be conscientious of the waste they use and the products they consume. The less we use and the less we waste, the better this earth will be. If there are items that must be used, it is a good idea to use things that can either be recycled or reused. Other things that you can do is to provide more habitat for more animals by planting trees.
Question: What are three endangered animals in Africa and the countries they are from?
Answer: The pygmy hippopotamus primarily lives in Liberia is extinct, as well as the riverine rabbit in South Africa. Finally, the Ethiopian Wolf lives in Ethiopia!
Question: What is the most endangered species to date?
Answer: This is an ever-changing answer. One animal that might win that title is the northern white rhino because the last surviving male died in March of 2018, which means there is no way for the two remaining females northern white rhinos to mate; therefore, they will become extinct.
Question: How much on a scale of 1 to 10 are leatherback turtles endangered?
Answer: I do not think a scale of one to ten is an accurate way to classify how endangered an animal is since that kind of scale is very subjective. Fortunately, they do have a classification system for how endangered animals are that starts with least concern and goes to extinct. On that scale, leatherback turtles are classified as endangered. The stages in order are:
1. Least concern
2. Near threatened
5. Critically endangered
6. Extinct in the wild
Question: How can we save endangered birds?
Answer: The best way to save endangered birds is the same way to save most endangered animals and that is to take care of the world around you by recycling what you can, reusing what you are able, and reduce using everything else. Also by educating yourself and others on the dangers these animals are will help. The more we are aware of how our actions affect these birds, the more conscientious we will be when we do things that could be harmful to the earth. I also think that supporting non-profits that are trying to make a change are a good idea, such as WWF.
Question: How many Bornean orangutans are left?
Answer: According to worldwildlife.org, as of 2019, there are only 104,700 left.
Question: What will happen if we don't save endangered species?
Answer: Unfortunately, one species is interdependent on other species, which means that when one animal is affected, so are many others including plant life. So by allowing one endangered animal to die off, you are endangering many other species of both animal and plant life. This then causes a domino effect of many species.
Question: What are your views on the protection of endangered species?
Answer: God has called us to have dominion over all species, and a large part of that I believe is to take care of them. Therefore, I believe it is imperative that we take reasonable measures to protect endangered species.

Question: Are crocodiles also endangered animals?
Answer: Yes, there are many species of crocodiles that are endangered. The most critically endangered of all crocodiles are the Philippine crocodiles with less than 100 in the wild. It is more endangered than the Chinese alligator, which is the most endangered alligator with 150 left in the wild.
Question: Which type of animals are endangered ?
Answer: There are animals of all types and all habitats from all countries that are endangered. None are immune. That is why it is important for us to take care of the world.
Question: Is the markhor an endangered species? If so, why?
Answer: Yes, the markhor is endangered. The main cause for this is that they were hunted for many years. Habitat destruction has also played a part.

This info not just really helpful but true we do need help the animals from being extincted. The animals have food chain they eat one animal after another if the animal is extincted its stops the food chain and the animals will end up eating a different animal and they already have enough animals eating them it can cause the animal to be extincted.
