Pandas are dying out mainly because of one main reason: habitat loss. Their main source of food is bamboo, which takes a long time to grow. This problem wasn't present when pa…ndas were spread throughout the massive south-east of Asia, including China. Hence, when a forest of bamboo was being consumed by them, or a forest bloomed out, they could simply move to another bamboo forest, but as the forests have been cut down the Pandas are finding food supply harder to find after a bloom out. Industrialization needs people to clear off these ranges or lands for factories and agriculture. Hence, bamboo forests in Asia started to decline tremendously. Wild pandas have been reported to die because of starvation simply because they cannot reach the next bamboo forest quickly enough, or at all. Habitat fragmentation affects their feeding, and mating as well, anytime the Panda has to leave their territory, they are at risk. Pandas, too, are picky regarding their mates. But an even larger problem than the panda's selective behavior is, females are only fertile, or in their reproductive cycle for for about 5 days. For a male to find a female in the wild, and quickly enough to mate with her while she is still fertile, is a small miracle. The odds are against it happening, there are a lot fewer pandas surviving in the wild, and the habitat is filled with fences, walls, roads, and other obstacles. Pandas are endangered because they are getting hunted by people who are killing off these animals without knowing that they are endangered and have no concerns, or cares about the balance and well-being of the ecosystem. The Panda is a specialized species and that creates a level of strain that is sensitive to any outside pressures and can quickly endanger the species continued survival. The panda's requirements are very restrictive, for example their diet; they really only eat bamboo, and in such quantities that it requires large bamboo forests with dense undergrowth to support them. They can now only be found in south-china. The "specialists" of the animal kingdom is in a way "predisposed" toward endangerment, and need to be watched or monitored closely when they come into contact with humans, or during any weather events that can cause serious damage to their habitat.

Beavers are on the endangered species list because 200 years ago, man use to hunt beaver and they have so many predators and they can not move fast on land.
The Humpback Whale was listed as an endangered species June 1970. Both by the state of Washington and Orgeon, and by Federal, so it was already listed when the US Endang…ered Species Act was passed in 1973. A ban had been enacted on "non-subsistence hunting" in 1955 by nations who were members of International Whaling Commission, or IWC, which was estabilished in 1946 to protect the North Atlantic Humpbacks. However in 1965 the protection given to the North Atlantic Humpbacks, was expanded to include the North Pacific and Southern Hemisphere populations.
Golden eagles are protected by the International Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. They have few natural enemies and people, indire…ctly and directly, remain the greatest source of mortality: electrocution, collisions with vehicles, power lines, wind turbines, poisoning and illegal shooting. Human disturbance around nests can lead to nest abandonment. Habitat change due to urbanization, agricultural development, and wildfire decreases available habitat and reduces prey populations

Red Pandas are mainly an endangered species due to habitat loss and fragmentation, poaching and inbreeding depression.
orca wales and killer wales
pandas are endangered because people are cutting down bamboo forests and also because people are hunting them for their fur
No, armadillos are not endangered
Yes. They are running out of their natural habitats, and some zoos are trying to relocate them in safer locations.
