In today's world, species become extinct, endangered or are threatened with extinction because of humans. Humans hunt animals, destroy their habitats, and introduce other animals that prey upon the endangered animals or compete for their resources.

The greatest threat to plants and animals is habitat destruction.

Naturally some species of plants and animals die out because newer species are more successful at competing for food and living space. Others have become extinct because of changes in the planet or because of natural disasters.

Plants and animals hold medicinal, agricultural, ecological, commercial and aesthetic/recreational value. Endangered species must be protected and saved
so that future generations can experience their presence and value.

THE EXTINCT




Tazmanian Tiger (extinct 1936)

Spoiler:
EXTINCT, ENDANGERED, THREATENED (awareness on species) Thylac10

Once referred to as ‘tigers’, and despite having the look of a canine, the Thylacine isn’t remotely related to cats or dogs. Rather, it was the largest carnivorous marsupial of modern times, meaning it carried its young in a pouch. Its closest living relative is the Tasmanian Devil.

The biggest cause of their extinction in the wild was a massive hunting campaign instituted by the Tasmanian government from 1888 to 1909, justified because the Thylacines were believed to be a threat to sheep and hens.

Quagga (extinct 1883)

Spoiler:
EXTINCT, ENDANGERED, THREATENED (awareness on species) Quagga10

The Quagga was a unique variety of Plains Zebra, marked by having stripes only on the front of its body, with hair color transitioning toward a light brown or tan along its rear and underbelly, until becoming white along its legs. This picture represents the only Quagga ever to have been photographed alive, taken at the London Zoo in 1870.

Its unique hide made the Quagga a target for hunters and poachers, and the last known wild Quagga was probably killed in the late 1870’s. The species went extinct on August 12th, 1883, when the last specimen died at a zoo in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Bubal Hartebeest (extinct 1923)
Spoiler:

EXTINCT, ENDANGERED, THREATENED (awareness on species) Bubalh10

The Bubal Hartebeest was a magnificent, tough beast which was once domesticated by the ancient Egyptians as a food source and for sacrificial purposes. The creature was even mentioned in the Old Testament.

Although it once roamed throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East, the deep-rooted mythology which surrounded the animal was not enough to save it from European hunters who began hunting them for recreation and meat. The last Bubal Hartebeest was probably a female which died in the Paris Zoo in 1923.

THE ENDANGERED




Giant Panda (endangered 1984)

Spoiler:

EXTINCT, ENDANGERED, THREATENED (awareness on species) 97026710
The giant panda is the rarest member of the bear family and among the world’s most threatened animals. There are fewer than 1,600 pandas left in the wild today and half of them live outside of protected areas.Today, the giant panda's future remains uncertain. As China's economy continues rapidly developing, this bamboo-eating member of the bear family faces a number of threats. Its forest habitat, in the mountainous areas of southwest China, is increasingly fragmented by roads and railroads. Habitat loss continues to occur outside of protected areas, while poaching remains an ever-present threat.
