100 most endangered species!

Scientists fear 100 most endangered species they listed at the World Conservation Congress in South Korea will be allowed to die out because they have no obvious benefits for human beings. The population of many endangered species is less than 100. Some of the species population is just 10 or less than 10. We humans are one of the reasons behind their disappearance. Our hunting. agriculture expansion, over-fishing, deforestation, urbanization etc. forced many species to say goodbye forever.

We should not let them die out.

If we want, we can save many endangered species. They need our help to make their species survive. Why shouldn’t we help if it prevents some species from going extinct?

    Regrettably, it’s ever more difficult to tell if it’s our actions that are causing extinctions or if an organism is just no longer viable because it’s at an evolutionary dead end.

    West Australian orchid? There’s probably half a dozen others not yet found.

    Remember WA is almost 10 times the size of Texas or, if you prefer, almost a million sq km larger than Alaska.

    54. Coral Tree

    The picture of the this one really jumped out at me since they are used extensively in landscaping in my area and don’t seem to be in any real danger of going extinct. There are 130 species of coral trees (two of which I’ve planted in my backyard). Checking the WCC’s website, it appears that the one they are concerned about is erythrina schliebenii, which doesn’t look anything like the photo above.

    Great post.

    We have so many memorials to our dead in wars and disasters.

    We have also forgotten so many other animals that we naked apes have made extinct.

    Too many species, destroyed when they could have offered us so much.

    Enough extinctions. Enough biodiversity loss.
