Top 10 Endangered or Threatened Animals


The Top Ten

1 Giant Panda Giant Panda

Once again, habitat destruction and poaching. - IcetailofWishClan

2 Cheetah Cheetah The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

Habitat destruction and poaching are killing them. Come on! What did animals ever do wrong? Nothing! - IcetailofWishClan

Exactly! And neither have any of the other animals on this list. The main reason there are any animals on the list at all are because of us humans and our careless. I would prefer it if the word "endangered" didn't exist at all! - Warriorcats

3 Asian Elephant Asian Elephant

Seriously, why not let them have a chance to thrive in some places instead of poaching them for their horns and destroying their habitat for overgrazing and urban sprawl? - IcetailofWishClan

4 Polar Bear Polar Bear 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.

Melting ice in the Arctic due to climate change is hard enough, just like poaching for their fur, but now they want to destroy the remaining polar bear habitat just for oil. - IcetailofWishClan

What kind of brainwashing have you been exposed to? There are substantially more polar bears today than there were 50 or 100 years ago. "Want to destroy the remaining polar bear habitat just for oil" is total bullcrap.

BRAINWASHING? What are you talking about? Yes, there are more polar bears than their used to be. But, "want to destroy the remaining polar bear habitat" is not the only thing making them endangered. Global warming has a huge impact on polar bears, so go ahead and feel free to be a careless, selfish moron who doesn't realize how many animals have gone extinct because of us. Polar bears are next! - Warriorcats

5 Red Panda Red Panda The red panda (Ailurus fulgens), or also known as the red bear-cat or the red cat-bear, is a mammal native to the Eastern Himalayas and Southwestern China. Despite having the word "panda" in its name, it's not a panda. It's closely related to raccoons

If killing off giant pandas wasn't enough... - IcetailofWishClan

6 Siberian Tiger Siberian Tiger The Siberian tiger, also known as the Amur tiger, is a tiger subspecies inhabiting mainly the Sikhote Alin mountain region with a small population in southwest Primorye Province in the Russian Far East.

These poor animals are coveted for their horns... - IcetailofWishClan
