Because they are rare and people hunt them and sell their feathers.
Most endangered species are endangered because we are killing them for there teeth, skin and bones or there habitat is being destroyed or there isn't enough food for them.… Answer2: Beautiful snow leopards of Central Asia, the giant pandas of China and the condors of the Andes all depend on mountain habitats, as do countless other species threatened with extinction. The mountains for generations their remoteness has largely protected them from excessive human exploitation, now however they are under threat. Some of these last wild areas are fast disappearing in the face of agriculture, infrastructure development and other creeping impacts explains a United Nations press release. Half of the population of the world depend on the resources of the mountains which cover a large portion of the world's land surface. Unfortunately too frequently mountains are seen as providers of abundant natural resources, with insufficient attention being paid to the plight of the inhabitants as well as the sustainability of their ecosystems", stated a keynote speaker at rhe 2002 Bishkek Global Mountain Summit organized in Kyrgystan. So basically human activity is causing a dramatic loss of biological diversity. Ref Awake magazine 3/22/05
3 endangered species in Indonesia are : 1. the Javan Rhinoceros 2. the Sumotran Tiger 3. the Borneo Pygmy I belive the Asian elephant is one of them.
An endangered species is near extinction
An endangered species is a officially-designated animal species that is threatened by extinction. This can be due to natural or man-made changes, including chemical pollution,… loss of food sources, loss of habitat, competing species, or excessive hunting. Species are classified by various levels, including 3 degrees within the "threatened" status: vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered. Usually animals that have only a few small breeding populations are said to be "endangered". The American bison (buffalo) and whooping crane faced the real possibility of extinction but have recovered. Wildlife agencies and other animal protection groups work to prevent the extinction of threatened species of plants and animals. (see related link) A species whose numbers are so small that the species is at risk of extinction. An endangered species is a species whose breeding numbers has fallen to a very low level. Unless reversed by protection, low breeding level could lead to a species extinction. This could be from being hunted or poached, or by the destruction of their environment, or territories. an endangered specie is a population of an organism which is at risk of becoming extinct because it is either few in numbers, or threatened An endangered species is one which is at risk from extinction. For an animal to be endangered its numbers will be very low, only a few thousand left in the wild. This may be down to loss of habitat or decline in food. Endangered species include: Amur leopard African Rhino Asian Elephant African Elephant Asian Rhino Chimpanzees Giant panda Gorillas Orangutan Polar bear River Dolphin Tigers Tree Kangaroos And thousands more species and sub-species Endangered species are species that are possible to become extinct. Endangered species are animals that need more of themselves. Like there are not many of tigers left, so they are called endangered species. They mostly become that because of humans destroying their habitat or killing them for food or for poaching. An animal or plant that has dropped to low numbers, such as not being able to sustain the population without help.
Wood bison, Siberian crane, Beavers, and Siberian tiger are four I can name. The wood bison, beaver, and tiger are endangered from being over hunted for their fur (as well as …their meat for the bison). The crane is threatened by pollution of it's habitat. Measures are currently being taken to increase the population of these creatures.
Humans (according to your personal view) Humans are not endangered. Wolves are probably the most avid hunters for any endangered species.
Answer Many reasons can cause a species to be endangered. Sometimes its because they are running out of food. Sometimes they are smaller and the larger species are over…-populated and eating them. Because most species are hunted and wasted. They have values and meat for people.
By all means, YES.
I thinks it where ecosystems where species are endangered are called hotspots
The international groups and nations that publish lists of plants and animals in peril and who monitor and track the numbers of animals in a species for species protection, ea…ch have their own criteria for listing each species and define the statuses under which they are listed. Their criteria and definition varies between the different lists and statuses. More information is available on the methodology of listing endangered species at the sites linked below in the related links section.
Well, this depends on what species you're talking here. Snow leopards are a biggie within the Endangered Species Act, same goes for the armur leopard (a subspecies, also k…nown as Siberian leopard, they're critically endangered). If you're talking the common species in general, leopards are listed as "near threatened" on the IUCN Red List.
yes. There are many including th oklawa and the carolina sponge .
The term 'exotic species' can apply to any species that is not native to a particular country. Imported 'exotics' can endanger local wildlife by preying on them for food !…
