The polar bear is the first species to become endangered due to global warming. Global warming has resulted in a steady reduction of the natural habitat of the polar bear. As a result, the number of polar bears has decreased dramatically.
Some species of elephants are listed as endangered, while others are listed as critically endangered! Asian elephants are even more in danger than their African counterparts. It would indeed be a tremendous loss to planet earth as a whole, if these gentle giants were no more to be found.
There has been a dramatic decrease of sea lions in Alaska in particular. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) made great efforts to get sea lions listed as an endangered species.
The sleek and graceful snow leopard has no predators save one – the human being. As a result of the actions of this predator, both direct such as hunting, and indirect which result in habitat loss, the snow leopard population is steeply dropping. The snow leopard is found mainly in China, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, and Mongolia.
The giant panda is perhaps the most well-known endangered species – a celebrity in its own right! Native to China, this bamboo eater is the official logo of the WWF.
