The greatness of a nation is judged by the way its animals are treated.Mahatma Gandi
Humans are the biggest threat to all of these endangered species. The reasons are endless including poaching, habitat destruction, and the effects of climate change. The top 10 species that are almost extinct are Amur leopard, Gorilla species, Sea turtles, Orangutans, Sumatran elephants, Saolas, Vaquitas, Tigers, Rhinos, and Pangolins. Do you know Blu from Blue Sky Studios’ “RIO”? That species the Spix Macaw went extinct in the wild in 2018. 60 to 80 live in captivity. Scientist estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird and mammal become extinct every 24 hours! That’s greater than anything the world has experienced since the disappearance of the dinosaurs.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch in others words Trash Island ranges waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan. The patch is actually part of the Western Garbage Patch, located near Japan, and the Eastern Garbage Patch, located between the U.S. states of Hawaii and California. This pile of junk is the size of Texas. Thank you for reading, I am mostly thankful you care. SAVE THE CHUBBY UNICORNS!
