10 Animals Your Children May Never See

When I heard about Sudan, the death of the last male Northern White Rhino, I felt a profound sadness- her we are, witnessing first hand what mankind’s ceaseless meddling and rampant abuse of its natural resources has done. We were responsible for wiping out an entire species – and it didn’t even make the front page news of most papers. Here are 10 other species that on the endangered or the critically endangered list of the WWF.

Poaching is the most immediate threat to wild tigers. Every part of the tiger—from whisker to tail—is traded in illegal wildlife markets. Unfortunately, their parts are used for traditional medicine, folk remedies and, increasingly, as status symbols among some Asian cultures. One of the world’s largest, and most uniquely-adapted, tiger populations is found in the Sundarbans.

This mangrove forest area shared by India and Bangladesh harbours a variety of species, including tigers, and protect coastal regions from storm surges and wind damage. However, rising sea levels caused by climate change threaten to wipe out these forests and the last remaining habitat of this tiger population. It is only recently after a sustained effort that tiger numbers are slowly on the rise.
