14 Endangered Sea Creatures
From the beautiful borneo shark, to the rarest irrawaddy dolphins, these are 14 ENDANGERED Sea Creatures ! Green Sea Turtles -- There’s a global trade in sea turtle meat and turtle products, and that serves to endanger these creatures. Some of these animals are caught and killed at young ages, then dried and varnished to be sold as curio items. The animals are also poached for their shells, which can fetch steep prices. The reason that Green Sea Turtles are named as such is because they eat only green seagrass and seaweeds. They also have a layer of green-colored fats under their shells. Borneo Shark -- Sharks are mercilessly hunted for their meat and for their fins, which is considered a delicacy. Borneo Sharks have been listed as endangered by the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN). These are often considered the rarest of all sharks and only inhabit misty rivers. The small creatures measure around 26 inches long, and the only confirmed specimens were found in 1937 and 2004! Fin Whale -- This is the second largest animal after the blue whale, and is found from polar to tropical waters. As with other large whales, this animal was hunted heavily throughout the 20th century, and is considered an endangered species. Even though the International Whaling Commission issued a moratorium on the commercial hunting of this whale, Japan and Iceland have resumed hunting. Global estimates for the population range from under 100,000 to around 119,000. Asian stocks of the Fin Whale are considered critically endangered. Hawksbill Sea Turtle -- While it resembles other marine turtles, the animal is clearly distinguished by its curved, sharp beak and serrated appearance of its shell margins. They spend more time in tropical coral reefs and shallow lagoons in addition to living in the open ocean. They’ve been eaten as delicacies in China since the fifth century BC and their shells are used for decorative purposes … it is the basis of the material, tortoiseshell. The turtle’s critically endangered status is due to loss of habitat because of pollution and coastal development, among other factors. Whale Shark -- Discovered in 1828 off the South African coast, it’s considered to be the biggest fish species in the world … reaching a confirmed length of 41.5 feet and weighing 47,000 pounds. It’s found in tropical waters, and is considered endangered due to the impact of fisheries, vessels strikes and bycatch losses. And because the animals can live to around 70, their late maturation means it takes more time to repopulate their losses. Currently, there is no agreed-upon estimate of the global whale shark population. Irrawaddy (ee-ra-wah-dee) Dolphins --These creatures are related to the Orca, or Killer Whales … and is similar in appearance to the Beluga. It’s found near sea coasts and in rivers in areas of the Bay of Bengal and Southeast Asia. They’re considered more susceptible to human conflict that dolphins that live farther in the open ocean. Noise pollution from high-speed vessels is considered a threat to these animals, because it makes them dive for extended periods of time. But accidental capture and drowning in gillnets present a greater risk for the animals. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) lists five out seven subpopulations as critically endangered, due primarily to the risk of drowning in fishing nets. Axolotl --- It’s also known as a Mexican Walking Fish. Despite that name, it’s actually an amphibian, and they are used extensively in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate their limbs. The creature is native only to lakes of central Mexico and is listed as a critically endangered species in the wild, with a population that’s decreasing. Water pollution from the urbanization of Mexico City is cited as a major threat to the Axolotl. Likewise the introduction of non-native fish such as Asian carp, which prey on the amphibians. As of 2010, axolotls in the wild were considered near extinct. Vaquita Porpoises -- This rare species of small porpoise is native to the northern region of the Gulf of California … and is considered to be the world’s most endangered cetacean. While they’ve never been hunted directly, a major reason for their decline is the use of illegal gillnets … that’s a type of netting that catches fish by the gills and prevents their escape. The Vaquita aren’t always the target for gillnets, but become ensnared all the same. In 2014 the estimated number of individuals was less than 100 … by 2016 that number was down to 60. Unless greater conservation efforts are undertaken, it’s speculated that this species could become extinct within 5 years time.

ENDANGERED  Marine Animals
The saying goes that there are plenty of fish in the sea, but...are there? The world’s oceans, rivers, and other waters are home to an incredible array of animals. But for many reasons, those animals are beginning to dwindle. Here are some amazing animals that are either vulnerable or already endangered. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5. False Killer Whale True killer whales are not whales at all--they are the largest dolphin on earth. The false killer whale, shown here, is the fourth largest dolphin. They can weigh around 1500 pounds and reach up to 20 feet in length--that’s 680 kg and 6m long. The population around Hawaii is estimated to have only 123 members left, 46 of whom are able to mate. This genetic pool is so small that they will eventually go extinct due to inbreeding. Abroad, there may be as few as 480 false killer whales alive in the wild. Their biggest threat is commercial fishing. They feed on mahi mahi and other fish that are commercially caught, so the false killer whale is often tangled in fishing nets by accident. 4. Giant Clam Giant clams are harvested often as a food source, but even more often because they are so beautiful. Their shells are very impressive and there is a huge illegal trade in them. Their shells are often used as jewelry, dishes, and even sinks since the shells can grow to be 120cm across. But they don’t belong in houses, giant clams belong in the wild. As larvae, they are mobile. Then they find a spot to spend the rest of their lives--which can be a long, long time. Up to 100 years or more, in fact. Giant clams, again, are highly prized as a food source because they are so large. One giant clam measured 137cm across and weighed 250 kg--that’s over four feet and 550 pounds. Reproduction for giant clams is difficult because they are immobile--so it takes some luck to produce more giant clams. The best way to protect these creatures is to remove the market for their shells. Appreciate them in the ocean, not in your home. 3. Finless Porpoise The finless porpoise is so called because it lacks a true dorsal fin. Instead, it has a long ridge down its entire back. They are relatively small, growing only to 1.5 meters or 5 feet in length and weighing only around 100 pounds or 45 kg. They live primarily in the Yangtze river, which they shared with the baiji dolphin. In 2006, the baiji dolphin went extinct officially. Like the baiji dolphin, the finless dolphin is suffering from its proximity to human beings. Its food source is being depleted, like the baiji dolphin. The population is dwindling also due to boat injuries and water pollution. 2. Vaquita Porpoise The name “vaquita” is Spanish for “little cow,” a name likely given to them due to their interesting color patterns. They are light, with patches of grey, particularly around their eyes, nose, and down their fins. The vaquita is a tiny porpoise, measuring only up to five feet long and weighing only 120 pounds. They were first discovered in 1958 and in less than 50 years, their population has dwindled to approximately 30 individuals, making them the most endangered marine mammal in the world. They share waters with the highly sought after totoaba, a fish whose bladder is considered a delicacy in asian countries and has been fished illegally for years. This is the main threat to their population, because they are continually drowning in nets meant for totoaba. Today, conservation efforts might be too little, too late as officials in Mexico attempt to set up a breeding sanctuary for the remaining porpoises. Hammerhead Shark The hammerhead shark, aside from the Great White, is probably the most recognizable of the carnivorous fish. There are actually nine species of hammerhead sharks, but it is the Great Hammerhead we’re discussing today. They can reach lengths of 6 meters, that’s nearly 20 feet, and weigh 450 kg or 990 pounds. Their bodies are designed for being a top predator and their interesting head shape, for which they are named, gives them 360-degree visibility. In the wild, hammerhead sharks can live for half a century or more. But few make it that far. They are often fished illegally for their fins. “Finning” is an unethical practice, during which fishermen strip sharks of their coveted dorsal fin and toss the rest of the shark back into the water. If they aren’t caught intentionally, hammerhead sharks will also fall victim to large fishing nets and will drown. This is called bycatch and as we’ve said so far, it’s a threat to many different species.

10 Creepy Sea Creatures You Didn't Know Existed
Did you know any of these amazing and scary deep sea creatures? It's hard to believe these bizarre animals exist. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg 'Hatchet Fish' footage by Filmic Art : www.filmicart.com For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] Description: There is a vast world below the ocean that we have yet to discover in its entirety. While we seem to know nearly everything about the land, the sea still leaves much to be desired. As you go down into the depths of the ocean, you’ll notice a lot will change. For one, you’ll begin to be immersed in darkness. Second, the pressure will change. So, the creatures that have been discovered deep in the oceanic depths are quite different biologically, and they can be quite terrifying to look at. But once we begin to understand them, we can start to learn more about our existence, and even come closer to curing diseases and solving some of the world’s most complex mysteries. However, the sea creatures that have been discovered recently have shown to be just downright creepy and terrifying. You probably recall the Angler Fish, especially if you’re seen the Disney movie, “Finding Nemo”. If you didn’t realize that this fish is the real deal, get ready for new additions to your nightmares. It wasn’t a work of fiction or some messed up fantasy of some Disney Imagineer. The fish that we see in this video is actually female, and the male is a small weakling, wandering the sea to find a female with her pheromones. The male then attaches itself to the female and becomes a parasite. Every part of the male merges with the female except for the testicles, which the female uses to impregnate herself. Jokes aside, this is quite a fascinating process despite how creepy it is. Similar to the angler fish is the Viper Fish, which has a natural extra attachment that illuminates in the darkness of the sea with the purpose of attracting prey. The blob fish is a creature that you wonder what God was smoking or shooting up when he decided to create the blob fish. This fish has no bones, and literally just hangs out on the ocean floor and hopes that food comes to its mouth. Whether you want to worship the blob fish for its epic level of laziness or wonder how in the world the species is still in existence with such an apathetic demeanor, it’s still creepy to look at. Then we have the goblin shark, which is pretty much like the underwater version of the alien from the movie “Alien” due to its protruding mouth. The goblin shark has a large snout and needle-like teeth that are sharp and deadly. For a completely random sea creature, we have the Christmas Tree Worms, which really look like tiny walking fir trees that come in different colors. The branches or hair-like appendages help them breathe as well as consume phytoplankton. Then we have the sea pig, which looks nothing like the pigs we have on land. But instead the sea pig is a multi-tubed foot sea creature that is closely related to the sea cucumber. It eats by pulling water and absorbing organic food. Quite innovative, even though it looks creepy. For more creepy sea creatures, check out the rest of the video for more.

Top 10 Supposedly Extinct Animals Caught On Camera
Some creatures might be considered as endangered or extinct animals, but the reality is that some have been caught on camera. Here, you will be amazed at our top 10 most amazing seemingly endangered or extinct animals and species caught on camera. Subscribe for more! ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedSubscribe ◄ Stay updated ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedFacebook https://twitter.com/BeAmazedVideos https://instagram.com/BeAmazedVideos◄ For copyright queries or general inquiries please get in touch: [email protected] Credits: http://pastebin.com/KFRp5hv9 Featuring the rare extinct animals of… Dryococelus - For upwards of 80 years, this oversized stick insect avoided human eyes. Commonly known as the Lord Howe Island stick insect, it was previously assumed to having been last spotted in 1920, but in 1960, it was deemed extinct. Coelacanth - This incredible dino-fish was originally thought to have vanished with its prehistoric brethren some 65 million years ago, but it made a miraculous recovery in 1938 when a South African museum curator stumbled upon the fish while trawling off the east coast of his home country. La Palma Giant Lizard - Within the past 500 years, it was believed the oversized lacertid of the island of La Palma had gone extinct, all signs of its species vanishing entirely for nearly half a century. Tasmanian Tiger - The striped Tasmanian tiger was declared extinct in 1986 after a survey of the continent failed to make any confirmed discoveries, but there are those that still believe the Australian marsupial, which was allegedly hunted into extinction, still exists. Honshu Wolf - During an 18th century epidemic of rabies, a large population of this Japanese wolf was killed off. By 1905, the last specimen was reportedly sighted at Higashi-Yoshino village. Javan Tiger - In 1994, the Indonesian tiger subspecies the Javan Tiger was deemed extinct, the last recorded sighting occurring as far back as 1976; but as you've probably gathered from this video so far of great beasts, what is deemed extinct not always is. Bathochordaeus Charon - This is a type of mysterious ocean blob that had not been seen in over a century. It was discovered by scientists last year, in 2016, and shed light on an unusual animal that, after centuries of searching, many feared extinct, if it had even existed in the first place. Wooly Flying Squirrel - The giant woolly flying squirrel resides in the Pakistani Kashmir and is one of the rarest and most endangered squirrels in the world. It had not been seen by westerners since 1924, and was believed to be extinct before it was rediscovered in the summer of 1994 by an American zoologist working in a remote valley of Kashmir in the far north of Pakistan. Baiji - Once located on China's Yangtze River, the Baiji dolphin was an abundant species that is believed to have dwindled due to the Three Gorges Dam construction and the traffic that developed because of it. In 2006, the species was declared extinct with one of the last of the species dying in captivity in 2002. Omuras Whale - This is widely considered the rarest whale in the world. Its such a unique species in fact that for decades those who encountered it simply thought it was a strange kind of miniature Blue Whale instead, measuring 40-foot or 12 meters long.

15 FASTEST Animals in the Ocean
From the elusive mahi mahi, to the fast black marlin, these are the 15 FASTEST animals in the ocean Orca Whale -- also known as a Killer Whale, Orcas aren’t whales at all. They’re more closely related to dolphins. They’re found in oceans worldwide but seem to prefer the colder waters of the North Atlantic and Antarctica. Orcas have been clocked at speeds up to 30 mph, though they turn on an additional burst of speed when chasing certain prey. They have only one predator, and that’s humans. Swordfish -- This aptly named fish are known for their sword like bills. That, along with their streamlined shape, allows them to easily cut through the water. they can and can thrust and parry with the best of them. When leaping, they’ve been observed to reach 60 mph. Did you know The size of swordfish eyes can be the size of a softball? In 2012 one of those eyes washed up on a Florida beach and created a big mystery as to what kind of creature it belonged to. Ever wonder if maybe one swordfish poked out the eye of another swordfish? Pilot Whale -- These mammoth marine animals can weigh as much as 3 tons and males can reach up to 25 feet long. They tend to favor deep waters and are known to be intelligent and highly social, often forming in groups of 100. These whales are known for their deep diving ability, and prey on large squids. They’ve been clocked at 47 mph when leaping. Wahoo -- This fish is known for its great strength and speed, having been observed to attain speeds from 48 to 60 mph! No surprise it’s one of the fastest of all known fish. Their speed is enhanced by bladelike fins that allow it to slice through the water. They’re recognized for their aggression and for their teeth, which are razor-sharp. They’re known as excellent gaming fish and for their excellent taste when cooked. Yellowfin Tuna -- This species of Tuna can reach speeds up to 50 mph. Did you ever think a Tuna could swim that fast ... even Charlie Tuna? They have some heft, too weighing up to 440 pounds and measuring up to 8 feet in length. The Yellowfin Tuna is also known as one of the fastest and strongest predators in the open ocean. Sailfish -- With speeds up to 68 mph, the Sailfish ranks as one of the fastest marine animals. To be fair, that speed includes the Sailfish leaping into the air. It moves faster while leaping than it does while swimming. They’re recognized by their blue-gray coloring, and for their elongated, needlelike bill. Their name comes from the erectile dorsal fin that looks like a sail. At some 220 pounds and measuring 10 feet long, these creatures are pretty much built for speed. Did you know that if the Sailfish swam a 200-meter race, it would clock a time under 10 seconds! Michael Phelps is an Olympic gold medal swimmer and his best time was about 1.42 minutes, which works out to 4.7 mph. That would leave a lot of human swimmers all wet! Marlin -- This species of Marlin is found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The largest marlins have measured over 15 feet long and weighed over 1600 pounds. They’ve been clocked at speeds of up to 80 mph which would make them one of fastest of all fish. Bear in mind, that speed is an estimate, and refers to the speed with which hooked marlins can unwind fishing line. More often than not, the Marlins speed is estimated at 50 mph. They’re also a highly sought after game fish and are fished commercially. Atlantic Bluefin Tuna -- You thought the Yellowfin Tuna was big? Meet its cousin … this species of tuna can reach a massive size of 1500 pounds and measure up to 15 feet long … that’s some tuna. But despite its impressive size, this fish can reach speeds up to 45 mph! It turns on the jets when pursuing prey like red crab or anchovies … or escaping from fishermen who want to turn it into lunch! Humans -- Okay, so humans aren’t sea creatures. But we’re throwing in our noble species for the sake of perspective. How do humans rank against some of the fastest sea creatures in the world. Short answer: Not good. Even our fastest swimmers can manage a mere 5 miles per hour. So, obviously, humans will not rank anywhere amongst the fastest things in the ocean. But let’s not feel too bad … After all, humans are still faster than the Dwarf Seahorse. That slowpoke can only manage 0.01 mph … so, hey ... feel good about that! Mahi-Mahi or Dolphin Fish -- One of the most visually arresting fish in the sea, the Mahi Mahi Bears unique metallic green and blue colors with black, blue, or green spots. Its forked tail and sleek body allow it to reach speeds up to 40 mph. Did you know the name Mahi Mahi means ‘very strong’ in Hawaiian.

The Most Rare Shark Species Hidden in The Ocean
top 10 rarest but most amazing sharks you need to see Subscribe to TheHub http://goo.gl/87YJzG Sharks are creatures that strike fear into the hearts of many, although the truth is that sharks have more to fear from us than the other way around. Many of us just picture the great white shark as being the only kind of shark out there, but there are a ton of unique species of sharks out there, so many of which you may never have heard of! The greenland shark is thought to be one of the oldest species of shark in existence, and specimens have been found that are up to 400 years old! You might think that all sharks have fearsome teeth, but the megamouth shark and basking shark are planktivorous sharks, meaning that they feed only on small animals and plankton. And not all sharks are giant, hulking predators. The angular roughshark and the pyjama shark are both likely smaller than you are. If you’re looking for a truly bizarre looking shark, make sure you check out the goblin shark. We can definitely see where it gets its name! The speartooth shark is able to live in both fresh and salt water, and only in the last couple of years have we managed to tag adult members of this species. The frilled shark may look more like an eel than a shark, but just wait until you catch a glimpse of its teeth! And the wobbegong family of sharks enjoys traversing the bottom of the sea floor so much, that they have even begun to walk on it in their own way!

The most terrifying thing about this little thing, and the reason for its sensational name, is its behavior towards its favorite food: cockroaches. It actually injects a paralyzing toxin into its prey's belly before eating the roach alive. The cockroach is only paralyzed by the toxin, not grilled, and has to watch as it’s being slowly devoured by the dementor wasp. Researchers named the newfound waspAmpulex dementor, or "dementor wasp" for short: The name was inspired by Harry Potter's dementors, ghostlike creatures that suck away a person's happiness and will to live. In May of last year, researchers described the pacified, poisoned roach to Live Science Magazine as a “passive zombie” that submits itself to being eaten alive. Ugh!! 12 - Goliath Birdeater Here’s another truly, terrifyingly weird entry to this list of assembled weirdos from the animal kingdom. This species was officially discovered in 2006 during an expedition to Guyana. It’s a burrowing spider, feeding primarily on invertebrates, though it’s also been observed eating small mammals, lizards, and venomous snakes. Wait, what? Yes, it even eats snakes. Fully grown specimens can reach a horrific weight of around six ounces. An almost half a pound spider!! Thankfully for us – and for any other creatures too large for this spider to eat – the Goliath Birdeater is a species of tarantula that has relatively weak venom, which only causes mild swelling and pain for a few hours. The only thing that poses the biggest threat to us humans is the goliath’s ability to expel hairs from its body. These tiny, nearly invisible hairs float through the air – and have an awful tendency to stick to the eyes and on the skin! 11 - Louisiana Pancake Batfish The Louisiana pancake batfish is a bizarre looking creature native to the Gulf of Mexico. The species was discovered in 2010, during the cleanup process following the infamous oil spill in the gulf, one of the most devastating ecological disasters. The Louisiana pancake batfish’s name comes from its shape, which quite closely resembles that of an unfortunately prepared pancake. The strange manner it has of moving along the ocean floor is described as being similar to the way a bat crawls. Like other batfish it has pectoral fins which resemble limbs. It uses these fins, together with their smaller pelvic fins, to 'walk' along the ocean floor. The pancake batfish feeds on invertebrates, which it captures using chemical lures. 10 - Acrobatic Arachnid This little guy is definitely not about to help anyone get over their arachnophobia. Forget about crawling up your leg or onto your pillow. This spider does gymnastics. This spider lives in the Moroccan sand dunes. The spider hides from predators in its own little sandcastles; towers made of silk and sand that also serve as a little bit of relief from the sun. When threatened, though this spider does something really weird: It breaks into a run that soon turns into a tumble. The spider basically starts cartwheeling at 6.5 feet per second up and down the dunes. 9 - Sea scorpion One of the most terrifying things in popular imagination since the Jaws movies has been the mystery of what lurks in the depths of the deep blue ocean underneath us. Sure, sharks are pretty terrifying, but during an excavation of an ancient meteorite impact crater in the Upper Iowa River, researchers uncovered the fossilized remains of human-sized sea scorpions with both pointy and paddle-shaped limbs. The sea scorpions likely ate bivalves and squishy eel-like creatures during their day, roughly about 460 million years ago. Giant scorpions crawling around the floor of the ocean? Let’s just hope they’re as extinct as scientist say and you don’t bump into one next time you’re on the beach!

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.

13 Shocking Effects of Pollution
13 Very important and terrible effects of the pollution that us humans are creating from trash harming animals to noise pollution Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Acid Rain Acid rain can occur naturally from volcanic emissions but there is a direct result of human activities and acid rain. With toxic fumes getting mixed into clouds, they get absorbed into our atmosphere and can come out from rain. Animals and plants need a particular ph level in order to stay healthy... 6. Noise Pollution Effects Many of us might limit the idea of pollution only to nature and not sound. We are quite used to the sounds of urban life and it doesn’t begin to bother us. Whether it’s listening to music or pets barking, it might not be a serious issue. But when noise keeps us from going to sleep at night, it begins to turn into pollution. This normal infers to noises that are unnatural and excessive. This can actually lead to more problems than you’d like to think. Our ears were not constructed to handle the amount of noise that we might experience in the big cities of today. Loud noise can certainly lead to sleeping disorders and health issues as well. Studies show that aggressiveness can be a direct link to noise pollution. This affects other animals as well, especially since they rely heavily on sound in for things such as hunting and mating rituals. 5. Toxic Air Pollution Some places in China are experiencing record high levels of air pollution. It’s getting so rough out there that even dogs are wearing surgical masks to protect themselves from the toxic fumes. In 2015, 100 million people were warned and told to stay inside their houses across 10 different cities. Schools and factories were shut down, hoping to reduce exposure to the heavy blankets of toxic air swarming the country. Rising levels of air pollution have caused a new disease; called the Beijing Cough. This is from burning a large amount of petroleum in recent years. In the past, the air pollution from China has travelled to the Central Valley of California. A number of children suffer from respiratory illnesses and things don’t seem to be getting any better. Kids are more vulnerable to respiratory illnesses due to their size Living somewhere with a lot of pollution certainly makes it difficult for Santa Claus act jolly during Christmas time 4. Smog Smog is a direct result of air pollution and other places like LA There are several pollutants that make the sky murky. There’s particulate matter which includes smoke and is the main cause for smog. But there are other pollutants that are released which certainly don’t help. Other common air pollutants include Hydrocarbons, Sulfur Dioxides, and silent, invisible killer (carbon monoxide). Cars, and trucks also emit a large amount of smog. A simple way to reduce this is to participate in carpooling or taking public transportation. Each year, 50,000 or more people die in the US due to air pollution. 3. Trash Outweighing Fish It’s predicted that in the future, about 30 years from now if changes aren’t made, they’re will be more trash in Earth’s oceans. The amount of plastic waste is much higher than other type of trash that is found and is much more hazardous to our ecosystem. Much of this could simply be avoided by just recycling. The plastic is not only valuable to companies who want to use it, but quite important to keep out of our oceans. It takes one plastic water bottle, 450 years to biodegrade. Some bottles possibly 1000! Debris left over from fishing can be left in the ocean and harm seals like we see in this photo. 2. Fish Kills Another shocking effect of pollution is what’s known as a fish kill. This is when a large amount of fish show up dead and can be caused from numerous environmental factors. Although there are natural causes for this, things like toxicity, reduced levels of dissolved oxygen and drought are all possible ways. Agricultural pollutions with water rich in pesticides can often reach places where fish are present. If a chemical like cyanide is released into the water, people will be able to tell from the fish's gills turning a cherry red. The fish’s habitat is fairly fragile and any slight changes in chemical compounds can result in fish kills. 1. Global Warming With so much carbon and greenhouse gases being emitted into the air, where are they supposed to go? Our ozone layer which regulates our temperature, keeps gases from escaping. Temperatures changed and oceans are getting warmer and even slight changes can have dramatic consequences. Glaciers melting. Coral reefs disappearing, droughts, floods can all be a result of this. Let’s all do our part and keep mother earth alive and flourising… Before it’s too late.

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.

Endangered Species: Worth Saving from Extinction?
Species are going extinct at crazy high rates. Does it matter? Find out in this video. SUBSCRIBE to Above the Noise: [https://www.youtube.com/abovethenoise...] 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 and Shirin Ghaffary. *NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY* 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 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.

RARE Creatures That Actually Exist
From deep sea mysteries that were thought to be myths to a collection of animals that are on the brink of extinction here’s our group of the world’s rarest animals that still exist on our planet. 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 Hairless Sun Bear Talking about this viral photo, which is good for clicks is uncomfortable. We don’t like to think about this creature suffering with serious diseases while people were marveling at it's unique appearance in a lighthearted way and comparing it to Gollum. The creature you see was a sun bear who was captured in January of 2015 by plantation workers. Unlike most sun bears she happened to be hairless, causing her unique, rare appearance. She seemed very old and was suffering from several parasites. Many of the poor creature's claws were cracked and broken. That picture is a still shot from a video of the bear, likely scared out of it's mind, trying to escape the metal cage in which it was being held by biting through it, while being surrounded by people taking pictures and, of course, the video. It's very hard to watch. Though authorities and veterinarians did their best to bring the creature back to good standing health she would end up passing away months later in early June 2015. Though constantly surrounded by them, she was never fully comfortable around humans. Sun bears live in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia. The palm oil industry has invaded and stripped this bear of their habitat, and today it’s a vulnerable species. Hainan (hi-nahn) Gibbon The Hainan Gibbon is an extremely rare mammal, perhaps the world’s single rarest. The most recent count found just two families and a total of 22 Hainan Gibbons in the wild. They are confined to Hainan, a small island off the southern coast of mainland China. Males and females are extremely different in appearance. As you can see males are almost completely black with white patches on their cheeks while females are golden in color with black spots. Their both slender which makes sense as they swing in the wild from tree to tree to get around. Roloway Monkey Out of all of the primates in Africa, the roloway monkey is among the most threatened. Despite the fact that they’re small, harmless and have awesome, long beards they’re often hunted and sold in the bushmeat trade. Also like so many creatures in the wild their habitat is disappearing as humans clear forests to make room for themselves. When studied in the wild researchers have found that they have a lifespan of twenty year. In captivity however they can live to the ripe old age of 30. Northern White Rhino One of two white rhino subspecies, the northern white rhino appears to have gone extinct in the wild. The last time they were spotted was in 2006 when four were seen. Experts have since reported no trace of them. Meanwhile, only three exist in captivity, this 44 year old male named Sudan who was caught in the wild when he was just three and two females who were born in captivity. They’re all held at the Dvur Kralove Zoo, a 180 acre facility in the Czech Republic. Giant Panda So we got into the sun bear a little bit while we were talking about that unfortunate hairless bear a little bit earlier. The sun bear as a species is one of the rarest bears, but not the rarest. That dubious distinction belongs to the Giant Panda an animal who is scant in numbers despite it's likeness being so famous and easily recognizable. Rough estimates state that just over 1,500 pandas remain on the planet. Luckily some reports have said that their numbers are increasing which is a welcome trend. As a matter of fact they were reclassified from being an endangered species to being vulnerable in 2016. Their habitat has been decimated and today they are confined to south central China. Before we get to our last rare creature we’d like to thank everyone out there for watching and giving feedback. Let us know how we’re doing and don’t forget to subscribe on your way out. Florida Panther There were once more Panthers playing hockey in Florida than there were roaming the wild. The Florida Panther was chosen as the state animal in 1982, and that decision was probably made to raise awareness about just how rare they were at the time. In the 70’s estimates had their numbers down to just 20 in the wild. Luckily though, conservation efforts reversed this trend, giving this animal a second chance at life in the proces. Estimates made earlier this year had their population at 230, which means there’s still work to be done, but it's a great start. Human encroachment started the Florida Panther’s decline. They were pushed to a corner of south Florida. This isolated population eventually began inbreeding, which as we know from ancient Egyptian royal families can cause all sorts of health problems.

19 Extinct Species Found ALIVE !
From bizarre flightless birds, to some ancient turtles, these are 19 EXTINCT Species Found ALIVE !!! 10. Lord Howe Island Stick Insect -- It’s considered the rarest insect in the world, and they were thought to be extinct since 1920. It was rediscovered in 2001 on a small islet of Ball’s Pyramid. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it’s the tallest and most isolated sea stack in the world. Less than 30 individuals were located living underneath a single shrub there. Did you know this Stick Insect can grow to 15 centimeters long? That’s why they’re sometimes referred to as “tree lobsters”! 9. La Gomera (go-merra) Giant Lizard -- This animal is considered a true lizard … and in these photos from Jaime A. de Urioste (day’oo-ree-os-tay) you can see the white coloration around its throat in contrast to blackish-blue coloration of its body … and you can also get a sense of its size as it lays on the brown dirt, or rests upon a reddish boulder … They can grow to half a meter long. This species is native to La Gomera go-merra), one of the Canary Islands ... and were thought to have gone extinct by 1985. But Spanish biologists found six living individuals in 1999. Today, the creatures are listed as critically endangered. 8. Madagascan Serpent Eagle -- as its name would suggest, this medium-sized raptor is indigenous to the island of Madagascar. It has a wingspan up to 110 centimeters, and measures up to 66 centimeters long. After its last confirmed sighting in 1930, this bird of prey was thought to be extinct … but it was rediscovered in 1993! 7. Bermuda Petrel (peh-trul) -- These creatures were last seen in the 1620s, and were believed to be extinct for more than three centuries. But in 1951, 18 nesting pairs of the birds were discovered on isolated rocky islets in Castle Harbor. The Petrels have a global population of around 250 individuals … meaning they still face extinction today. 6. La Palma Giant Lizard -- This creature was thought to have been extinct for five centuries before being rediscovered in 2007 … and some sources STILL list the animal as extinct! The lone individual located was around 4 years old and measured about a foot long. Expeditions to the Canary Island’s La Palma region are being planned to search for a breeding population. 5. Caspian Horse -- This breed of small horse is native to Northern Iran … and is thought to be one of the oldest horse breeds in the world … with remains found that date back to 3400 BC! Its original height is estimated at 36 to 46 inches (91 to 117 cm). The little equines seemed to vanish from history after 700 AD, and were presumed extinct. But the animals were rediscovered in 1965 in Iran … and seemed to have survived relatively unaltered. 4. Monito del Monte -- Until one of these tiny marsupials was discovered in the southern Andes of Chile, they were thought to have been extinct for 11 million years. It’s likely related to the earliest Australian marsupial which lived some 55 million years ago. 3. Laotian (la ocean) Rock Rat -- This species was first discovered for sale at a meat market in Laos (louse). It was placed in its own family because it was considered so distinct and unusual from other living rodents. But that was just the beginning … after a systematic re-analysis in 2006, the animal was reclassified. It turns out the unique rodent belonged to an ancient family of fossils believed to have gone extinct some 11 million years ago! Researchers have discovered additional specimens, suggesting the rock rat may not be as rare as originally thought. 2. Gracilidris (grah-sill-ih-dris) -- After considered extinct for some 20 million years, it was rediscovered and described in 2006. These ants have been found in Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. Very little is known about them, but they do exhibit nocturnal behavior and nest in small colonies in the soil. A single existing fossil in amber from the Dominican Republic qualifies this creature as a Lazarus Taxon (tax-ON), not unlike the Coelacanth (seela-kenth). 1. And speaking of the Coelacanth (seela-kenth) -- This creature was thought to have gone extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period, some 65 million years ago. But in 1938, this ancient order of fish was rediscovered off the coast of South Africa. They’re among the oldest living jawed fish believed to exist, and serve as an example of a Lazarus Taxon (tax-ON) … an organism that disappears from the fossil record, only to later come back to life! They’re known to swim over 500 meters deep, grow to over six feet long, and weigh around 200 pounds! Did you know this creature first appeared in the fossil record some 400 million years ago?

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.

25 Endangered Animals Our Next Generation Might Not See
Although there might be up to 30 million different animal species in the world, which may seem like a lot, scientists estimate that 99.9% of all species that have ever existed on Earth are now extinct. Extinction is a natural process; a typical species used to become extinct within 10 million years of its first appearance, although some species survive with virtually no morphological change for hundreds of millions of years. However, these days, when the planet is bursting at the seams with over 7 billion humans, the species loss is occurring at a rate 1,000 times greater than the natural background rate. Ruthless human expansion, hunting, and the destruction of natural habitats, climate changes, pollution and other factors have caused an incredible number of animals to become extinct. Some scientists estimate that up to half of presently existing plant and animal species may become extinct by 2100. Alarming to say the least. To give you an idea of what kind of animals could possibly die off soon, here are 25 endangered animals our next generation might not see.

RAREST Animals That Are Almost EXTINCT!
Check out the rarest animals that are almost extinct! This top 10 list of mysterious and exotic animals has some of the rarest critically endangered species currently living on our planet! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Ocean!" video here: https://youtu.be/XYfqi5VNgac Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Philippines!" video here: https://youtu.be/vwIIeiOhTJ0 Watch our "Most STRANGE Things Found On The Beach!" video here: https://youtu.be/cQjpze_4z5U 14. Pygmy Three-toed Sloth This sloth was only officially recognized as a distinct species in 2001. They are very small and are surprisingly good at swimming. Due to their relaxed and slow natures, sloths are constantly in danger of being killed by predators. The Pygmy Three-toed Sloth is no exception and it is a critically endangered animal. 13. Sunda Rhino Also known as the Javan Rhinoceros, the Sunda Rhino at one time was spread all over South Asia as part of its natural order, but over time, the species became confined to Ujung Kulon National Park in Indonesia. Now, it's one of the rarest animals in the world. 12. Metallic Tarantula The Metallic Tarantula may not be made of metal, but it is real! Not to be confused with the Cobalt Blue Tarantula, the Metallic Tarantula is also known as the Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tree Spider. It was first recorded in 1899 and then “rediscovered” in 2001 in India. 11. Northern Muriqui This Woolly Spider Monkey, known as the Northern Muriqui is found in Brazil. These rare creatures are rather unusual in regards to their personality. They believe in equality for all, males and females, which is not something you see in the animal kingdom that often. 10. Hairy Nosed Wombat There are only three different kinds of wombat in the world and the hairy nosed wombat almost went completely extinct. They used to be all over Australia, as a century ago they were introduced to various parts of the continent including New South Wales and Queensland. Now though? They're only in Queensland in Epping Forest National Park. 9. Red-Crested Tree Rat Here is a rodent that is rare for numerous reasons, as the Red-Crested Tree Rat isn't just a critically endangered species, scientist thought they were completely extinct since no one had seen them in 100 years. Volunteers at El Dorado Nature Reserve were excited when this little guy showed up for pictures but they didn’t have a clue as to what it was. 8. Angel Shark The Angel Shark is one of the few breeds of shark that look like other sea creatures, mainly rays and skates, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise due to the fact that they are technically cousins. The Angel shark has a flat body and large pectoral fins, and when it is not camouflaging itself on the ocean floor, it looks rather majestic as it glides through the water. 7. Elephant Shrew This creature is not what you might expect. First and foremost, the Elephant Shrew is not actually a shrew at all! Also known as sengis, they are more closely related to elephants. Surprise!!! 6. Ploughshare Tortoise The Ploughshare Tortoise, also known as the angonoka tortoise is one of the rarest tortoises in the world. Native only to Madagascar, like many other creatures on the island it has fallen victim to the illegal pet trade, land loss and poaching. There's a big market for these tortoises, and so people will go to Madagascar, find them, and then sell them. 5. Durrell’s Vontsira Related to the mongoose, the Durrell’s Vontsira is actually a carnivorous mammal that hides out in the wetlands. This particular area of Madagascar is under threat from numerous sources. One of them is deforestation, but another is that numerous plant and fish species are being introduced to the area that are quite invasive. 4. White-Headed Langur Found on the island of Cat Ba in Vietnam, the White-Headed Langur is one of the rarest mammals on Earth. Adults are a dark chocolate brown while their babies have golden/orange fur. 3. Vaquita The Vaquita porpoise is also known as the panda of the ocean because of the big rings around its eyes. They are pretty small, only about 4 feet long and they usually weigh less than 100 pounds. It's also one of the rarest animals on the planet, found off the Gulf of California, and they usually stay in groups of 3. 2. Amur Leopard It may surprise you to know that the Amur Leopard is native to Russia and in China. That speaks a lot to their ability to cope with any climate, as the temperatures in those regions, especially Russia, can drop to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. 1. Hainan Gibbon There are many primates in the world, but few are as rare as the Hainan Gibbon, and their numbers aren't improving, in fact, there are less than two dozen left in the world today Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

18 Animals Lost to Extinction
The West Black African Rhino was hunted to extinction in 2011, and the last passenger pigeon died in 1914, check out these 18 Animals lost to Extinction. West Black African Rhino -- Weighing up to 2900 pounds (1300 kg), poachers hunted the animal for its horns which some cultures believe contain medicinal properties … although that has never been scientifically proven. The last West African Black Rhino was seen in 2006 in Cameroon. In 2011, it was declared officially extinct. Javan Tiger -- Native to the Indonesian island of Java, these cats resembled the Sumatran Tigers. They were once so numerous that locals considered them pests. That was in the 1800s. By the 1950s, only 20 of these animals survived. Encroachment on its habitat and agricultural development diminished the Javan Tiger’s numbers. Round Island Burrowing Boa -- It was once found burrowing on Round Island, off the coast of Mauritius (mar-rish-us) … you may recall that the Dodo also hailed from there, too. This snake was also found on other islands in the region. As its population dwindled, it could only be found on Round Island after 1949. Non-native species of goats and rabbits destroyed vegetation after being introduced to the island, eradicating the boa’s habitat. The snake was last seen in 1975. Po-ouli (pow-ooley) -- Also known as a Black-Faced Honeycreeper, this animal native to Maui was discovered in the 1970s. But by 1997 only 3 known survivors remained. Efforts were made to mate the remaining birds, but those efforts failed. By 2004 the specially was formally declared extinct. What happened? Disease, predators and loss of habitat are blamed as reasons for the bird’s extinction. Quagga (kwa-gaa) -- This animal was native to South Africa. As you might have guessed, they were actually a subspecies of the common plains zebra. Hunters coveted the animal for its brownish, partly striped hide which inspired some to call it a ‘horse tiger’. Hunting, along with competition from livestock for grazing land, led to the Quagga’s demise. The last of its kind died in the Amsterdam Zoo in 1883. Tecopa (tek-cope-ah) Pupfish -- A fish living in the desert? The Tecopa Pupfish called the Mojave Desert its home, and was known to survive in water temperatures up to 108 (42c) degrees fahrenheit. But the animal’s habitat was spoiled after development in the mid-20th century and the Pupfish was extinct by 1970. http://www.petermaas.nl/extinct/speciesinfo/tecopapupfish.htm Madeiran (mad-aaron) Large White Butterfly -- This beautiful butterfly was native to the Laurisilva (lora silva) forest valleys on Portugal's Madeira (mad-day-ra) Islands. Pollution from agricultural fertilizers and construction leading to loss of habitat are major reasons for the species’ eradication. The Large White Butterfly, a close relative is still commonly found across Africa, Asia and Europe. Bubal (bew-bal) Hartebeest -- Also known as the Bubal Antelope, Ancient Egyptians once used this animal for sacrificial purposes. It called North Africa home and was a common sight there. But European hunters steadily wiped out these beasts for sport and food. The last Bubal Hartebeest was a female and died in 1923 at the Paris Zoo. You can see her picture here. Caribbean Monk Seal -- These seals had been aggressively hunted for their meat, fur and oil. It started with European explorers in the late 15th century, and the tradition was later continued by whalers and fishermen. The seals’ traditional habitats in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea were ravaged by coastal development and fishing operations, which also hastened their demise. The Caribbean Monk Seal was last seen in the early 1950s and declared extinct in 2008. Pyrenean (peer-un-eon) Ibex -- The Ibex (or ee-bex) was once found throughout the Spanish, French and Andorran (and-door-un) Pyrenees (peer-un-nees). The population was decimated by hunting and the species went extinct in 2000. But in 2009, scientists used DNA from preserved skin samples and actually cloned a female Pyrenean Ibex! Unfortunately, the clone died from lung defects shortly after birth. What are some extinct animal species you’d like to see brought back to life? Leave a comment below!
