Our Planet is millions of years old and throughout the years many changes have occurred, some of them good, some of them not that good. While animals form an integrated part of the nature’s ecosystem, the expansion of human population, the deforestation and encroachment of lands and climatic changes have led to the loss of many animals’ habitat. As a result, many species are now extinct and, what is even worse, more and more species are now endangered and their extinction is very probable. I think that the human population should be aware that so many beautiful creatures are facing the danger of disappearing, so they would begin to do something about it. So here is the list of the endangered animals nowadays.

I bet that you had no idea that so many endangered animals today. Well, this is the sad truth, and even more sadly, there is not much that we can do about it. We must wake up though, and ask ourselves where is this planet heading to, because if we keep it up like this, soon we will have a desert planet. So fight for the animals rights, fight against pollution and try to prevent as much as you can the cut of the forests. If everybody would be aware of these facts, out planet would be a better and safer place.
