There are several frequently asked questions about endangered animals, such as: What animals are nearly extinct? What animals are in danger of extinction? What is the rarest animal on earth? How many animals have gone extinct? and many more.

Endangered animals meaning and definition

Endangered animals are animals that are in danger of becoming extinct caused of several factors. This means that there will be no more of these animals alive on earth. An animal is considered an endangered or “threatened species” when there are very few of them alive.

This wallpaper consists of the picture of several most endangered species in the world and several animals of the top 10 endangered animals. Here is the list:

Top 10 Endangered Animals

1. Komodo Dragons

Komodo Dragons are listed as endangered species due to habitat destruction from development and natural disasters. The Komodo dragons are threatened by the impact of climate change and in the next 45 years, the rising of global temperature and subsequent sea levels will reduce more than 30% of the ancient lizard’s habitat in Komodo National Park. The Komodo dragon is the largest living lizard in the world and one of the rare animals.

2. Gray Wolf

Gray wolves in most of the United States are once again protected under the Endangered Species Act, according to a new legal decision. Wolves are threatened by conflict with humans and intolerance.

3. Snow Leopard

The snow leopard is listed as “Vulnerable” on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. The main reasons this big cat is under threat are hunting, habitat loss, and human-wildlife conflicts. There are an estimated 4,080-6,590 snow leopards in the wild, but it is difficult for scientists to know for sure.

4. Desert Tortoise

Desert Tortoise is listed as “threatened” under the United States federal Endangered Species Act and is considered “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It is because of widespread habitat destruction and degradation, illegal collection, disease, raven predation, and other factors. Wild desert tortoises can live about 35 or 40 years although some live to be much older.

5. Indian Phyton

Indian pythons are considered a vulnerable species and are now protected. The main threat to the species is habitat loss due to agricultural development. Young pythons may be attacked and eaten by a variety of birds, wild dogs and hyenas, and even other snakes.

6. Gorilla

Gorilla is listed as critically endangered. There are two gorilla species in the world: the eastern gorilla and the western gorilla. The mountain gorilla is a subspecies of the eastern gorilla. The critically endangered mountain gorilla population is threatened by habitat loss, poaching, disease, and war. The commercial trade in bushmeat, which occurs throughout the west and central Africa, is the biggest threat to gorillas today.

7. Elephant

There are three recognized elephant species: Asian, African Savannah, and African Forest. The African forest elephant (loxodonta cyclotis) is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List. And the African savanna elephant is now listed as endangered. Since 1986, the Asian elephant has been listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List. Today, there are fewer than 52,000 Asian elephants left in the wild.

8. Rhinos

There are 5 species of rhino in the world: Black Rhino, White Rhino, Sumatran Rhino, Javan Rhino, and Greater One-Horned Rhino. Three of the five species of rhinos are among the most endangered animals in 2022: the black rhino, the Javan rhino, and the Sumatran rhino. Populations of black rhinos declined dramatically in the 20th century. However, the black rhino is still considered critically endangered. White rhinos are now classified as Near Threatened and around 18,000 animals exist. The recovery of the greater one-horned rhino is a success. Populations have rebounded from fewer than 100 individuals to more than 4,000 today.

Sumatran rhinos are more threatened due to habitat loss and fragmentation. They are now critically endangered, with only five substantial populations in the wild. Fewer than 80 Sumatran rhinos survive in small populations in Indonesia’s Gunung Leuser and Way Kambas National Parks, and a few isolated animals inhabit central Kalimantan. Javan rhinos are found only in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park (UKNP). Indonesia’s Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOEF) estimates the Javan rhino
population at 76 individuals in 2022. The species is critically endangered, with only one known population in the wild, and no individuals in captivity.

9. Amur Leopard

Amur Leopard is one of the rarest animals in the world. It is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List, in 2007. Amur leopards are threatened by poaching, persecution, habitat fragmentation, and excessive harvesting for ceremonial use. There are only around 100 Amur leopards in the wild.

10. Vaquita

With as few as around 10 left, the vaquita is the most endangered cetacean in the world. Vaquita is a species of porpoise endemic to the northern end of the Gulf of California in Baja California, Mexico. The species is currently on the brink of extinction and is currently listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN Red List.
