Top Ten Animals That May Disappear In the 21st Century

The next-to-next generations of humans in the 22nd century may not be able to see such animals if they are not stopped poaching.

The Top Ten

1 Whales

They are still hunted in huge numbers at the poles by Chinese and Japanese scientists that claim that they are using them for research but they sell products that they obtain from them. - yatharthb

I wish those idiot poachers died a slow and painful death.

2 Lions

Once hunted in large numbers, now are losing their Habitat - yatharthb

3 Tigers

Hunted in many parts of the world for Skin, Claws, Meat, Bones:Now a Mere 5000 are left - yatharthb

Less than 4,000 tigers left in the wild.

4 Polar Bears Polar Bears The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.

They are the only ones that can't be easily kept at Zoos, and with arctic ice caps melting, it's danger from all sides for them. - Kiteretsunu

Your "preposterous" statistic is completely useless and misleading. Polar Bears were hunted to near extinction in the early 1900s, recovered, and are dying off again at an alarming rate. Polar bear population numbers over the past 30 years is a much more telling statistic.

Polar bears are being hunted and also suffer the arctic ice melting - yatharthb

Polar bears are more endangered than lions.

6 Sharks Sharks Sharks are a group of fish characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Sharks have been around before the earth's first dinosaurs and even the earth's first trees.

Asia is eating all of the sharks. How would you feel if you were made into soup?

They are hunted in large numbers for meat, fin and as a threat to humans - yatharthb

Being hunted to make soup...SAD

10 Elephants

It will happen in only 10 years. The end is near for elephants, because of poachers. Please stop buying ivory for the good of elephants to be around longer. I will be devastated once I find out that elephants have been extinct. 😪
