Photos: Among World’s Most Endangered Animals

19 10 2012
In this Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2008 file photo a silverback mountain gorilla is seen in the Virunga National Park, near the Ugandan border in eastern Congo, The 175-nation U.N. Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, known as CITES, is based in Geneva and regulates nearly 35,000 species of animals and plants. Experts rank wildlife smuggling among the top aims of criminal networks, along with drugs and human trafficking. CITES says wildlife crime remains poorly studied but it says international estimates of the scale of illegal wildlife trade range from between $16 billion and $27 billion a year. Tiger parts, elephant ivory, rhino horn and exotic birds and reptiles are among the most trafficked items. (AP Photo / Jerome Delay, File)
Sumatran Orangutan – The Sumatran orangutan is the most endangered of the two orangutan species. Found only in the northern and western provinces of Sumatra, Indonesia, the species is fast losing its natural habitat to agriculture and human settlements.

Mountain Gorilla – The mountain gorilla became known to science on 17 October 1902, and is a subspecies of eastern gorilla. © Martin Harvey / WWF-Canon
Atlantic Bluefin Tuna – Tuna is perhaps the most high profile victim of unregulated and uncontrolled overfishing. Bluefin tuna populations have declined alarmingly over the past few decades. © Wild Wonders of Europe / Zankl / WWF-Canon
Leatherback turtle – The leatherback turtle has survived for more than a hundred million years, but is now facing extinction. Recent estimates of numbers show that this species is declining precipitously throughout its range.

Tiger – Less than 3,200 remain in the wild, we have lost 97% of our wild tigers in just over a century. © Kevin Schafer / WWF-Canon
Snow Leopard – There are up to 6,000 snow leopards in the wild across 12 countries, but its numbers are gradually declining, with hunting and habitat loss just some of the reasons that it is endangered. Naturepl.com/ Andy Rouse / WWF-Canon

We must try to save the endangered animals before they extinct.





A visit to Zoo Negara

28 08 2008

Today I went to the Zoo Negara with my family. First  I saw a giraffe   2nd elephant and 3rd flamingo. I also saw a bird and monkey.

At 11.00 am, I went to see animal show. The show was performed by a green and a red macaws. Then a small and a big sea lion play basketball.

Then we eat ice-cream before we go home.
