10 Most Endangered Ocean Species and Marine Animals
Our eco-system is comprised of interdependent animals and plants which constitute a complex web of life. This variety of life on earth, the biodiversity that features numerous interactions among the species, is most vital to the existence of our planet and, particularly, of humanity. Thus, indeed the extinction of a single species may affect the whole biological system pertaining to life and living things.

Endangered Species: Worth Saving from Extinction?
Species are going extinct at crazy high rates. Does it matter? TEACHERS: Get your students in the discussion on KQED Learn, a safe place for middle and high school students to investigate controversial topics and share their voices. https://learn.kqed.org/topics/5 Species are going extinct at crazy high rates. Does it matter? Find out in this video. ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and investigates the research behind controversial and trending topics in the news. Hosted by Myles Bess. *NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY* SUBSCRIBE by clicking the RED BUTTON above. Follow us on Instagram @kqedabovethenoise What does it mean when a species goes extinct? A species goes extinct when there are no longer any more of that species left on earth. That species is gone forever aka extinct. What is the 6th mass extinction? Throughout earth’s history there have been five major mass extinction events-- where a large percentage of species died out. Scientists estimate that we are in the middle of the 6th mass extinction event right now, where species are dying out at 1,000 to 10,000 times baseline extinction rates. Why should we care if a species goes extinct? Moral and ethical arguments to try to prevent species extinction include reasons like all life has a right to be here, or that we owe it to our grandchildren to protect species so they can see them in the wild. Species also impact the ecosystems they are a part of; plants and animals depend on each other in an ecosystem for things like food and shelter, so if one species dies out, then that could affect other species in an ecosystem. For example sea otters live in kelp forests and eat sea urchins, and when they were hunted almost to extinction the sea urchin population increased and ate all the kelp-- destroying the kelp forest habitat. What are ecosystem services? Ecosystem services are the collective benefits we get from ecosystems. Ecosystems provide us with a lot of great things like natural resources and water, and are home to living things we depend on-- like insects that pollinate our crops and decomposers that get rid of our waste. Ecosystems are healthiest when they are the most biodiverse.

Sea Turtle Entangled in Ghost Net Rescued
This video shows the detrimental effects of so-called ghost nets on marine animals. ***Warning: GRAPHIC CONTENT*** Video Credit and Copyright: Christine Figgener *** This footage is managed exclusively by Viralvideouk.com. If you wish to license this footage please contact [email protected] For more viral videos check here https://www.youtube.com/user/viralvideouk1 ** ----- Almost to the day exactly one year ago my research team found a plastic drinking straw embedded in a male olive ridley sea turtle's nostril (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wH878t78bw). We removed it and hopefully eased his suffering and improved his quality of life. This past 9th of August 2016, my research team once again encountered a sea turtle in distress. We found an exhausted olive ridley female swimming close to our research boat and she was dragging a huge bulk of discarded fishing net behind her. Parts of it were wrapped around her throat and had already started to cut into her flesh. We took her onboard our boat, cut-off the net, and disinfected her cuts with iodine. Due to the knowledge of the scarcity of sea turtle rehab facilities and lack of expert care for injured sea turtles in Costa Rica, we released the female back into the water since she seemed otherwise healthy and strong. As biologists, we don't actively seek out injured wildlife, but our research happens to position us at the front-lines of reality looking at the detrimental effects of human impact on wildlife. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our research is approved by the US IACUC and is conducted under research permits issued by the Costa Rican government, MINAE/SINAC and CONAGEBio.

(M.S.) ----------------------------------------------------- GHOST NETS "Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been left or lost in the ocean by fishermen. These nets, often nearly invisible in the dim light, can be left tangled on a rocky reef or drifting in the open sea. They can entangle fish, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, dugongs, crocodiles, seabirds, crabs, and other creatures, including the occasional human diver. Acting as designed, the nets restrict movement, causing starvation, laceration and infection, and suffocation in those that need to return to the surface to breathe.

Sea Shepherd Crew Save Humpback Whale Entangled in Illegal Gillnet
Sea Shepherd crew rescued a whale entangled in an illegal totoaba gillnet in the Gulf of California. Sea Shepherd currently has two vessels in Mexico's Gulf of California on OPERATION MILAGRO. Our goal is to save the vaquita porpoises, the most endangered marine mammal. The vaquita are caught as a result of fishing the totoaba, a fish poached for its swim bladder. Both the vaquita and the totoaba are endangered species and protected by law. Both species live only in the Gulf of California. read more at: https://seashepherd.org/news/sea-shepherd-crew-save-humpback-whale-entangled-in-illegal-gillnet/

Ocean Quahog The Ocean Quahog, or Arctica Islandica, is a large bivalve that grows up to ten centimeters tall. Large populations can be found in the ocean waters around Iceland, but they live buried beneath the sea bed all across the Atlantic Ocean. They hold the record for being the longest known living creatures on our planet, with one specimen that was caught in 2006 thought to be about 507 years old. This means it would have been born in 1499. Despite their longevity, the Ocean Quahog has been put on the list of at-risk species of the North-East Atlantic Ocean because numbers have been plummeting. This has happened due to extensive fishing to send to the USA for the manufacture of clam chowder soup, increased pollution of the seas by plastic and chemical waste, and the destruction of their habitats by deep sea dredge fishing. 9. The Vaquita The Vaquita, a small species of porpoise, was only first discovered in 1958- but today finds itself as being the world’s rarest marine mammal and on the brink of extinction. They are native to the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico, where large numbers used to gather, but numbers have severely fallen because of human activity in the area. A study in 1997 estimated a population in the region of only 600, but this fell to 100 in a similar survey in 2014 and most recently, in 2016, the total number is though to be around 30. That’s a population decline of over 92 percent since 1997, and means this glorious creature sadly doesn’t have much time left. Unlike other animals that are facing extinction because of hunting, the loss of Vaquita’s is mainly as a by-product of the fishing of an endangered fish called the Totoaba. This large, 300 pound fish is highly sought after for its swim bladder that is popular in Chinese medicine and, as a result, commands a high price. The gillnets that are used to catch the Totoaba also traps large numbers of Vaquita and has been the single most destructive factor towards Vaquita numbers. Despite the Mexican governments attempts to limit the fishing of the Totoaba for this reason, even banning the use of gillnets in 2015 for two years and setting up wildlife refuges, the porpoise has not been able to recover because there are still lots of trawlers using the nets illegally. 8. Javan Rhinoceros Rhinos are one of the more famous animals of the world that are endangered, but rather than the more well-known white and black Rhinos from Africa, the most at-risk type of the five different species is the Javan Rhinoceros. They used to be prevalent across south east Asia, but with the last Javan Rhino of Vietnam having been poached in 2010, the only known remaining ones all live in the Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia. They are very similar in appearance to the closely related “Greater One-Horned Rhino” and are a dusky grey color with one horn that grows up to about ten inches long. The loose folds of their skin make them look like they have armor plating, and they are thought to live for between thirty and forty years. With only around 60 of these Rhinos left in the wild, and none in captivity, their future survival depends on the ability of park rangers to protect them from the threat of poachers- who hunt them for their valuable horns that are a valuable commodity across the region for their supposed medicinal properties.

Sea Turtle with Straw up its Nostril - "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS
This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS! If you would like to support our research and conservation efforts in Costa Rica, please think about donating to our GoFundMe Campaign http://gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj UPDATES The Plastic Pollution Coalition just launched their "No Straw" Campaign in collaboration with us. Take the No-Straw-Pledge and learn more: http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.... ----- The Story behind the viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLN52... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPHb... OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

Sharks - Endangered Animals of the Ocean
Sharks - Endangered Animals of the Ocean Did you know that Sharks have existed for more than 400 million years. There are more than 450 species of sharks throughout the ocean and they come in all different colors and sizes. The Whale Shark is the largest and can grow to over 40 feet , that is as large as a school bus. The dwarf lantern shark is one of the smallest sharks at a mere 6 inches. What all the sharks do have in common is the role they play in their ecosystems. Most sharks are apex predators and sit at the top of the food chain. They play a vital role at keeping the ecosystem healthy by feeding on weak, old and unhealthy fish which stop the spread of disease among fish populations. Sharks take many years to mature and have only a few young at a time and are highly migratory. What makes them unique also makes them vulnerable. While the majority of shark species have sustainable populations a number of them have been shrinking at an alarming rate. For these species over fishing, bycatch, and shark finning are contributing factors in their decline. Because of this international concern about shark conservation has grown. In the United States, sharks are managed to ensure their population size can support sustainable fisheries and the ecosystem, and shark finning is prohibited. Thanks to a growing global awareness about vulnerable shark species many countries are implementing shark fin bans even in places where shark fin soup is considered a delicacy and cultural tradition. In March of 2013, as a result of tremendous international cooperation five shark species were listed by CITES , an international organization. The shark species that have been listed are the Great Hammerhead, Scalloped Hammerhead, Smooth Hammerhead, Porbeagle, and Oceanic Whitetip Shark. This means increased protection for these particular sharks while still allowing legal and sustainable trade. A healthy ocean needs healthy shark populations.

11 Critically Endangered Animals
From one of the rarest primates on earth,to the most endangered marine mammal in the world, these are 11 of the Most Critically Endangered Animals! Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife 5. Red Wolf -- Did you know that by the 1970s, the pure red wolf was thought to have gone extinct in the wild? They once inhabited the US, from Texas to New York and was considered a top predator within its historic habitat of swamps, forests and coastal prairies. Human hunters wiped out their numbers, and habitat loss was thought to have finished off the animals. But since a population was reintroduced, the red wolf is thought to number around 50 to 75 individuals. Today, they’re confined to a region of North Carolina, where they’re protected by law. 4. Amur (ah-MOO-r) Leopard -- This animal is native to southeastern Russia and northeast China. They’re differentiated from other subspecies by their thick, spot-covered fur … and for their long limbs that allow them to easily adapt to deep snow. Threats to their population include poaching, deforestation, and industrial development projects. As their numbers decline, inbreeding is a potential threat as the gene pool is steadily diminished … resulting in a loss of genetic diversity. Today, numbers of this critically endangered species is estimated at around 70 individuals. 3. White Headed Langur (luhng-GOO-r) - -- There are two recognized subspecies of this critter -- one lives on Cat Ba (kaht-bah) Island in Vietnam … the other is found in Guangxi (g’wan-see), China. The one found in Vietnam is referred to as the Cat Ba (kaht-bah) Langur (luhng-GOO-r). It’s considered to be one of the world’s rarest primates. The creatures have long tails which can measure more than 1.5 times their body size, and can weigh around 9 kilograms. They live high up in caves and trees of the limestone forest. But a booming tourism industry on Cat Ba (kaht-bah) Island is threatening their habitat. And the animals have long been hunted and poached for use in concoctions thought to provide health benefits. Their numbers have declined by some 80% over the past three generations. Today, there’s an estimated population of around 70 individuals. No wonder the Cat Ba Langur (kaht-bah luhng-GOO-r) was deemed one of the world’s 25 Most Endangered Primates. 2. Saiga (sy-guh) Antelope -- This creature is found in one area of Russia and three areas of Kazakhstan, where about 90% of the population is located. But it once roamed across a vast range of the Eurasian steppes, from the Carpathian Mountains to Mongolia. Evidence of their existence has also been found in North America during the Pleistocene. The Saiga (sy-guh) antelope is notable for its unusual, bloated nostrils that are closely spaced and face downward. The unique configuration of their nose enables the animal to cool its blood and filter out dust. In the winter, it heats the air before it’s taken into the lungs. Only males possess horns … they can reach 15 inches long and have up to 20 pronounced rings. The animals are critically endangered due to hunting, and demand for their horns for use in traditional medicines … that demand caused the antelope to become extinct in China. In 2015, around 200,000 of the antelopes suddenly died within a two week span … that was over 70% of their species. The cause was thought to be pasteurellosis (pas-ter-uh-LOH-sis)… a bacterial disease that can also affect humans. 1. Vaquita -- This rare species of porpoise is thought to be the world’s most endangered cetacean. It’s native to the northern area of the Gulf of California. They’re distinguished by dark rings around their eyes and patching on their lips. Females, which are larger than the males, grow to nearly 6 feet long … but overall, the Vaquita is considered the smallest porpoise. A major reason for their population decline is the practice of illegal gillnet fishing. Gillnets involve a type of netting that prevents fish escaping by catching them by the gills -- and not letting go. While Vaquitas aren’t the active targets of gillnets, they can become ensnared and drown all the same. Other threats include habitat loss, pesticide pollution and natural predators. Only 60 individuals are estimated to exist. Without great conservation measures, experts think the Vaquita could be extinct within 5 years … Making it the fifth marine mammal species to vanish in modern times.

10 Animals That Were Recently Discovered
► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] The animal kingdom is diverse and fascinating, and there are many different versions of the same species all over the planet. In some areas, such as the deepest reaches of the Amazon Rainforest, we know very little about all the creatures that exist there. And while us humans tend to think of ourselves as the masters of our world, it cannot be denied that there are many weird and wonderful things on Planet Earth of which we are simply unaware. That’s why everyone becomes so excited when we discover a new plant or animal species. Recently scientists have discovered new species of wasp, shark, ape, and even new animals descended from Dinosaurs! With that in mind, here are 10 amazing animals that have only been discovered in recent years. Squalus Clarkae Also known as the “Genie’s Dogfish,” this tiny member of the shark family, specifically the dogfish shark, grows just 20 to 28 inches long. Found in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this dainty predator has huge, anime-like eyes which are perfect for seeing in the deep, dark waters. Calistoga Crassicaudata Despite being just 9.8 millimeters long, this species of parasitic wasp is native to the Amazon, and is one of the most nightmarish creatures on this list. Its stinger is about half the length of its tiny body and is also an “ovipositor.” This means that that stinger also deposits eggs, along with a paralytic toxin into the wound it creates. Caelestiventus Hanseni This entry has been, thankfully, discovered post extinction. If you think we’re cruel for saying this, just wait until you hear about C.Hanseni! C. Hanseni was, in fact, a breed of Giant Pterosaur which sported no less than 110 teeth and 4 seriously wicked fangs. The scientists responsible for discovering it estimate that it may have had a wingspan of around 4.9 feet and fangs 2.5 centimeters in length. Mansourasaurus shahinae The second ancient discovery on our list is less carnivorous, but no less terrifying for its vegetarian nature. The Mansourasaurus was found in Egypt by archeologists in late 2017. This sauropod was long-necked, long-tailed, and the size of a modern-day bus! What makes this discovery so exciting? Dendrocerus Scutellaris Another member of the wasp family which has been discovered in recent years, D.Scutellaris is also a parasitic wasp that seems to have cut its way straight from a scary movie. Like it’s cousin C.Crassicaudata, this wasp lays eggs inside of a host. The larvae then hatch and, well you get the rest. Despite this, D.Scutellaris lacks the strong, pointy jaws that most endoparasitoid wasps use to chew their way free. Tardigrades Lovers of weird and wonderful animals will already know about the famously sturdy Tardigrade or as its sometimes called “water bear”. This tiny microscopic creature can survive in extreme cold down to negative -328 degrees Fahrenheit and extreme heat up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, they can even survive in the intense radiation and crushing vacuum of space! Talk about a super-creature, right? Shastasaurid The creatures of the world’s oceans remain more mysterious than even the surface of the moon; deep dwelling animals are still being discovered, today, and so it is little surprise that we are still becoming aware of now extinct species. Junzi Imperialis The burials of ancient Chinese royals were very often flamboyant and outlandish affairs which displayed the wealth and importance of the person through the goods they were buried with. Even still, archaeologists were surprised to find the remains of an extinct and ancient member of the Gibbon family within the burial menagerie of the grandmother of China’s first Emperor. The Bryant Shark Thanks to recent movies and media, the public is more aware of ancient sea life than ever before. Jurassic World, and The Meg have brought huge, sea-dwelling dinos into the public eye. But while we know about the infamous Megalodon, the largest shark to ever exist, few are aware of the ongoing search for one of its ancestors Orthrozanclus Elongata With an armored back and spikes lining its sides, this 515-million-year-old critter would probably give most people a nasty scare if they were to see it in person. The cocktail-stick-like spikes on its back were longer than the creature was wide and extended like sunbursts. Discoverer Dr. Martin Smith remarks that this would have made them look rather like a cuddly cactus. We hope you enjoyed this video! Let us know which one of these animals was your favorite.

17 Recently Extinct Animals
What do you do to help make things easier on the environment around you? Let us know in the comments below and subscribe to our channel for more informative videos, just like this – thanks for watching. Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 10 - Not for sale… It seems the fight against Rhino poaching is getting more and more difficult. It won’t be long before we are showing our children images of all rhinos, trying to explain these beautiful creatures. Already the rarest of the rhinos, the West African black rhinoceros, is officially extinct. You used to find hundreds of them in Africa, and now none – not even in captivity. 9 - When you’re dead, you’re dead… There’s no coming back! It was 2012 that the very last Pinta Island Tortoise sadly passed away. This is totally blamed on humans and their hunting. Apparently, they were hunted for food during the 19th century, and when goats were introduced on the island in the 50’s, the tortoises’ natural habitat was ruined. People tried to conserve the tortoise, but their efforts failed and they were left with one. Lonesome George mated with others, but their eggs were never fertile. He died in 2012. 8 - Forever in our memory… These Zanzibar leopards were found mostly in the Tanzania state of Australia. They were excellent predators and people were actually afraid of them. It was believed that witches would use the leopards to go and harass or harm the villagers, and the leopards became demonized. They were hunted intensely, and by 1997 – considered extinct. 7 - It’s finally official… Considering this Caribbean Monk Seal was only declared extinct in 2008, you may be surprised to have never seen one before. That’s probably because the last time one was actually seen alive was in 1952. Scientists were once again reluctant to call it, and were hoping to find more. They were hunted excessively for their blubber during the 17 and 1800’s. This seal had a nasal mite, which is now also extinct. 6 - Picture perfect… And that’s the only way this Ivory-billed Woodpecker will ever be. Because you can never, ever see one in real life again. Major habitat loss is the main reason why they’re no longer around, and some sites report the last official siting to be 1940. At one stage, there was a reward of $10 000.00 for anyone with information on these birds, but no one came forward with anything. 5 - Gone but not forgotten… The Baiji dolphin also known as the Yangtze River Dolphin was still recently listed on the critically endangered list, but it’s now been said they are officially extinct. Scientists traveled up and down the river for 2000 miles, using underwater microphones and optical instruments to detect the dolphin. There was thought to be a sighting in 2002, but it wasn’t conclusive. The demise of this beautiful dolphin is blamed on overfishing, pollution, poaching, habitat loss and excessive boat traffic. 4 - Another one gone… The Black-Faced Honeycreeper was a native bird in Hawaii, but partly thanks to the introduction of animals like pigs, cats and rats – havoc was wreaked on the eco-system over the past few centuries. That’s the reason given for the demise of this bird. The last one known to man, died in 2004 and none have been seen since. 3 - No longer in flight… This beautiful animal is the Madeiran large white, with the purest white wings and black tips. Sadly, the last one collected was in 1977, and although searched for extensively in the 80’s and 90’s, never found. It’s thought to be the result of a virus, and has officially been declared extinct. 2 - Good as gone This "salmonid" fish is called the Blackfin Cisco, and they used to be plentiful in the Great Lakes. Its dwindling population is because of overfishing and the invasion of species like the Rainbow Smelt, the Alewife and a type of sea lamprey. They have been considered extinct since 1996 and the last one seen was in Lake Michigan in 1969. However, there was one thought to be seen in 2006, so who knows – perhaps there are more. 1 - Never coming back… Our last extinct animal on our list is from Australia. It’s the Lesser Stick Nest Rat, and it used to make the most incredible nests using sticks, with some reaching as high as 9-feet. It’s been said they tasted pretty good, and they were quite trusting of humans – which didn’t help the little guy at all. They were last documented on film in 1933, but in 1970 there was also a trusted sighting.

19 INCREDIBLY Colorful Sea Creatures
From Nemo, the clownfish, to the beautiful and elusive Blue Sea Slug, these are 19 INCREDIBLY Colorful Sea Creatures ! 8. Blue Tang -- Undersea creatures seem to look really cool in blue … and this one is no exception. The Blue Tang shows off some amazing blue coloration complemented by bold black markings. It almost sounds like a fashion shows, right? These fish are usually found in Indo-Pacific waters and are actually bright yellow when they’re younger. The blue and black colors show up at their final phase of development. 7. Coral -- Is that a brain at the bottom of the ocean? No … but it is a brain coral … and just an example of the wide ranging variety of living coral and coral reefs, some of which are thought to have started growing over 50 million years ago. Contrary to some beliefs, coral are animals, not plants … they’re actually related to anemones and jellyfish. The reefs formed by coral provide housing for thousands of marine species, giving them a place to find food, reproduce, and keep them safe until they’re mature enough to venture into the deeper ocean. Did you know coral reef plants and animals have proven important to the development of new medicines to treat cancer, Alzheimer's and heart disease? But even with all those advantages, human activity is threatening almost 60 percent of the world’s coral reefs. 6. Flower Hat Jellyfish -- This rare species of jellyfish is a rare species usually found in the waters of southern japan, Argentina and Brazil. It can grow to a half-foot in diameter, and is easily recognizable by its translucent bell, which is pinstriped with opaque bands. Those coiling tentacles adhere to the rim while not in use. Like many pretty looking things, this jelly carries a sting … but even though it’s painful, it’s non-lethal to humans … the worst you’d get is a rash. 5. Blue Sea Slug -- We couldn’t find a lot of information on this critter. From what we’ve seen, it’s often identified as a Blue Sea Slug … but that sounds like a pedestrian name for such a colorful creature. You can see the brilliant blue coloration in this photo … the animal almost looks like an alien life form with the two antennae sticking up. We’re guessing it might be a Nudibranch (new-di-brank). Those mollusks are noted for their striking colors, and there are more than 2,300 validated species scattered about the world. Can you confirm that? Let us know in the comments! 4. Mantis Shrimp -- They’re one of the most colorful forms of marine life, but don’t be fooled. They’re also known as ferocious undersea predators that possess, pound for pound, one of the most powerful punches on the planet. Punching with speed equal to a .22 caliber bullet, the Mantis Shrimp has not only broken shells of its prey … it’s also broken through aquarium glass. Punching at that velocity makes water vaporize and explode with a sharp bang, a flash of light and extremely high heat, all of which is felt by the victim as an additional blast. Not bad for an animal that averages less than four inches long. 3. Juvenile Emperor Angelfish -- Their coloration will change with age … but while they’re young, they exhibit these amazing displays of swirling dark blue, white and electric blue. It almost look hypnotic, right? Well, the fish keeps these distinct patterns until it reaches maturity, which usually takes around 4 years. Then the fish develops blue and yellow stripes, and black shading around its eyes. 2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphiprioninae Clownfish -- Did you recognize them from “Finding Nemo”? Known as one of the most brightly colored fish in the world, their bodies have distinctive white striping with colors that can vary from red, orange or yellow. They’re also known as anemone fishes, because of their mutually beneficial relationship with sea anemones. The toxic tentacles of the anemones protect clownfish from predators. And the fast movement of the fishes helps anemones find food and increase circulation. 1. The Mandarinfish -- Also known as the “Mandarin Dragonet” it swims in the Pacific reefs … but it’s less than 3 inches long so it can be difficult to see in the wild. As you might guess, this fish is highly sought after in the aquarium trade … but they’re considered extremely difficult to their strict eating habits. Some people think the Mandarinfish might be the most beautiful fish in the world … would you agree? to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife

This is a condition when the body has too much melanin, the pigment that determines your hair, skin, and eye color. - In Africa, no one has been able to prove its existence for over 100 years. The last time a published photograph was taken was in 1909 in Ethiopia. - The most incredible thing about coelacanths is that they’re considered a transitional step between actual fish and four-legged land creatures. - Speaking of ocean dwellers, there’s another one that was considered extinct up until very recently: Omura’s whale, a.k.a. the dwarf fin whale. Before 2015, none of these whales had ever been found. - The giant Palouse earthworm has supposedly been extinct since the 1980s. But scientists found one adult specimen in 2005. - In 2008, the World Wildlife Fund (or WWF) made an astonishing discovery: high up in the mountains of Borneo there lives a whole colony of pygmy elephants that were thought to be extinct for almost two centuries! - The Fernandina giant tortoise was believed to have died out by 1906, and no signs of it were ever seen until February 17, 2019. A female was discovered in the Galapagos Islands.

10 Animals That are Close To Extinction (Endangered Species)
10 animals that are close to extinction (Endangered Species) An endangered species is a species which has been categorized as very likely to become extinct. Endangered as categorized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, is the second most severe conservation status for wild populations in the IUCN's schema after Critically Endangered (CR). So in this video we will see some of the world’s most endangered species critically in need of protection. A species with 500 animals left could be considered more endangered than one with only 300 left if that species is localised to one area and has a long reproductive cycle meaning the population cannot quickly grow.

Endangered and Extinct Animals | Video for Kids | Rare Extinct Animals Video
Today we will learn about Endangered and Extinct Animals. Animals present in such small numbers that it is at risk of extinction are called Endangered Animals. Examples: Panda, Tiger and Rhino. When an entire species of animal dies out, that species is extinct. Once it becomes extinct, it is gone forever. Examples: Dinosaurs, Irish elk and Aurochs.

10 Critically Endangered Animals That Will Soon Disappear
#top10 #critically #animals #PETA #Knowable It’s very sad when animals amongst us go the way of the dinosaur. There is just no coming back from #extinction. And today, we share our world with a number of creatures facing that terrible demise. Here is a list of 10 critically endangered #animals. #10 . Though fairly rare to begin with, the Guam #Kingfisher bird continues to scale down in numbers. Its population was slammed harshly when a non-native snake was accidentally introduced to its habitat, and the number of Kingfishers surviving dropped to a scary 29. But a massive effort by the U.S. Government has rebuilt the population of the birds to about 130. Helping in the breeding efforts are the Philadelphia Zoo, the #Smithsonian National Zoo, the #Chicago Lincoln Park Zoo, the San Diego Zoo, #Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the St. Louis Zoo. #9 . There are only about 100 #Alabama Cavefish left. The few that are left can only be found in underground pools in northwestern Alabama and there are only nine species of the fish. This is the rarest of cavefish in North America and all freshwater fish. This blind fish uses sensors to feel its way about. #8 . At one time, the #Madagascar Pochard was thought to be extinct. But it was rediscovered in a remote part of Madagascar in 2006. But even with that, it’s not too far from being extinct. There are only 74 known individual birds in existence. Eggs have been collected and, with special care, chicks are being raised in a special facility by aviculturists and are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. #7 . The Vaquita is in critical #danger of extinction. This is rare species of porpoise. In 2014, its numbers dropped below 100 and now stand at 60. This #creature, though very limited in number, can be found on the northern part of the Gulf of #California. Officials say that unless something significant happens in conservation efforts, the Vaquita will be extinct within five years. #6 . There are now fewer than 60 Amur #leopards in the world today. They are native to southeastern #Russia and northeast China. Since 1996, it has been a critically endangered species. At one point, there were only between 19 and 26 wild Amur leopards. #5 . The Santa Catarina guinea pig has a total population of about 42. It is an island creature that is very vulnerable to hunting and #natural #disasters. They can reproduce when they are only a few months old, but its #population has diminished greatly since the rising of sea levels 8,000 years ago. #4 . There is some serious concern over the Hainan black-crested gibbon, as there are only 22 left before extinction. This gibbon is a species in China, where their numbers once flourished and covered nearly half of the country. There were more than 2,000 gibbons in Hainan Island in the 1950s. But now they are identified as critically endangered by the #International #Union for #Conservation of Nature’s #Red List. #3. There are only three Yangtze softshell turtles left in the world. They are in #China. The Suzhou Zoo in China is attempting to breed two of them. The last surviving female is 100 years old, and fingers are crossed that the breeding – through artificial insemination – will results in fertile eggs. In a recent attempt, 89 eggs were laid, but none were fertile. #2. The dwindling numbers of the northern white rhinoceros has put it squarely on the #Critically Endangered List, as there are only three of them left. While in greater numbers, the rhino was found in several spots in East and Central Africa. The remaining three are housed at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya and are protected by armed guards around the clock. #1 . Unfortunately, there is not much hope at all for the survival of the Ecnomiohyla (Ekk-Nom-my-o-hi-la) Rabborum frog. Only one of this species remains in existence today. Its demise may well have been caused by a bacteria that swept through its native land. The male frog, named Toughie, was survived by two other male frogs, but one was euthanized Feb. 17, 2012, due to failing health. Toughie resides at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. He will be the last of his kind. That’s all for today. Do you know of any other animals whose numbers are thinning out? If so, let us know in the comments below.

Most COLORFUL Sea Creatures
The ocean is filled with 228,450 different species of animals that we know of, but it’s believed that there are as many as 2-million animals to still be discovered. They come is many different shapes, sizes and colours and just like our land animals, their colours serve a specific purpose beneath the surface of the ocean. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr Watch our "Evidence That Aliens HAVE Visited Earth " video here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL227eb9FSI Watch our "CRAZY Ideas That Actually Worked!" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0n2wEAiOcg Watch our UNBELIEVABLE Items Found After Tsunamis !" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNNLwdBI7Gk 9 - Boxfish These bright yellow fish are found in reefs throughout the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean as well as the south-eastern Atlantic Ocean. They can grow to around 18-inches or 45-cm in length. Their skin is bright yellow when they are a juvenile and as they grow older, they get a blue/grey hue. Their bright yellow is a warning to others, and if it feels threatened, will release a poison that is lethal to the surrounding fish. 8 - Juvenile Emperor Angel Fish It’s only the juveniles that come in these bright colours, and you’ll find them in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, from the Red Sea to Hawaii and they come in dark blue with bright blue and white rings. It takes 4-years for the fish to reach adulthood and their stripes change to yellow and blue. 7 - Fire Coral These bright animals are not coral but closely related to jellyfish. Also called “stinging coral” or “red sea coral,” fire coral can cause an unsuspecting diver quite a lot of pain. On closer inspection, you’ll see fine hair protruding from the organism, and those hairs contain clusters of stinging cells. It doesn’t derive its name from the fiery colour, but from the fiery sting it leaves behind! 6 - Clown Triggerfish They’re also called Big-Spotted Triggerfish, these saltwater fish have a stocky body and are very colourful. They have a black base with a bright yellow mouth and white spots. 5 - Portuguese Man 'O War These pretty blue sea creatures have a see-through bubble-shaped body filled with gas. This gas allows them to float on the surface of the ocean, and their venomous tentacles drag below. They’re found in the Pacific, the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic. Their tentacles can reach 165-feet long or 41-meters. Just know that even a tentacle not attached to a body can still sting! 4 - The Flame Angelfish These eye-catching red-orange fish are not easy to miss, and they inhabit the surface of more tropical waters, like the Pacific Ocean. They’re not dangerous or aggressive and are a favourite with aquarium-keepers. Flame Angelfish found in Hawaii have a deeper, more intense colour than those found in other waters. 3 - The Banggai Cardinalfish This beauty is native to the Banggai Islands of Indonesia, and they’re high on the endangered list due to overfishing. They’re also often caught up in trawling and they’re a favourite for tanks. Females lay the eggs and the male protects them. They come in the most beautiful shade of silver with black lines throughout and little white spots. 2 - Sea Nettle Inhabiting tropical and subtropical parts of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans, sea nettles appear white and glowing or dark reddish to yellowish-brown in colour. Sea nettles capture their prey by paralysis and they’re often seen transporting other sea creatures. 1...

The animal smugglers - Techknow
The smuggling of endangered wildlife, both dead and alive, is a billion dollar global business, second only in size to the illegal arms and drug trades. American border control continues to see an incessant attempt at bringing hundreds of species into the United States every year - each attempt more creative than the next. Chatuchak market in Bangkok is one of the largest open air flea markets in Thailand, attracting locals and tourists alike. It boasts over 8,000 vendors selling every type of good under the sun: ceramics, antiques, furniture, clothing and endangered animals. Chatachuk has been recognised by the World Wildlife Fund as a hot spot for illegal animal trade. "It's really disturbing actually - there's no telling what you're going to find," says Joseph Johns, prosecutor of environmental crimes at the US Attorney's office in Los Angeles, of Chatachuk. "You couldn't do this anywhere in the United States of America." People do ask me, 'what's the strangest animal you've ever seen?' and I'll tell them, 'it's man'. Mike Osborn, supervisor, US Fish and Wildlife Service The market is a tragically perfect place to sell and buy illegal wildlife. It is a bustling scene with hoards of people, perfect cover for a potential deal. Vendors can hide their illegal animals behind domestic pet storefronts. Thailand itself serves as a major funnel for the $10 billion illegal wildlife trade. There is a good chance that what is sold in Chatuchak might find it's way back to the United States. The black market for the animal trade is unsurprisingly nondiscriminatory - live crocodiles, overharvested Queen conch shells, and even rare orchids and other flora have also made their way across patrolled borders. "I've had monkeys jump out of suitcases, birds flying out of toothpaste boxes... they get more and more intricate nowadays," says Mike Osborn, supervisor with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. In some cases, the attempts to smuggle have been so desperate, the methods have matched the desire to make business. In Los Angeles, Jereme James was caught smuggling three Fiji island banded iguanas from a nature preserve - whilst on honeymoon - and attempting to sell them to an undercover US Fish and Wildlife Service agent. James admitted to smuggling the iguanas by creating a special compartment in his prosthetic leg. As with many other animals seized at the border, the iguanas in question were rescued by a zoo, in this case, the San Diego Zoo Reptile House. According to zoo curator Kim Lovich, most seized animals live out their days in captivity; it can be very difficult to return an animal back to its home without full knowledge of its original habitat. "If you don't know exactly where that animal is from, you could be introducing viruses to a naive population," says Lovich. The species themselves are selected for a range of values. Some for their rare and exotic qualities, like an ivory totem or a python wallet. Others are captured and sold for pseudo-medicinal purposes, such as the bladder from the Totoaba, a critically endangered sea bass that can only be found in Mexico's Sea of Cortez. The demand for this specific organ is coming from over 8,000 miles aay in Asia due to the belief that the bladder can improve circulation, skin vitality and boost fertility. One bladder can sell for $15,000 on the black market. Undercover agents are doing what they can to intercept the sale of trafficked goods, but the major driver of this falls on the public and the escalating demand for exotic animals. An economic boom, superstition, celebrity, and dubious medicinal claims are all playing a role, encouraging conspicuous consumption in Asia. Education and crackdowns need to continue to help mitigate the global trade. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
