     THE 11 MOST ENDANGER SPECIES!!!!!                             @__@    @__@    @__@      @__@       @__@  

Look MR.R i know u said to " write about 3 endanger animals and put it on the black rhino blog" but i changed it a little okay i hope u don't have a problem with me that instead of me writing 3 endanger animals i picked 11.


New studies indicate that there may be as few as 3,200 tigers (Panthera tigris) left in the wild. Tigers occupy less than seven per cent of their original range, which has decreased by 40 percent over the past ten years. Continuing deforestation and rampant poaching could push some tiger populations to the same fate as its now-extinct Javan and Balinese relatives in other parts of Asia. Tigers are poached for their body parts, which are used in traditional Asian medicine, while skins are also highly prized. Additionally, sea level rise, due to climate change, threatens the mangrove habitat of a key tiger population in Bangladesh’s and India’s Sundarbans. The upcoming Chinese Year of the Tiger, starting in February 2010, will mark an important year for conservation efforts to save wild tigers, with WWF continuing to play a vital role in implementing bold new strategies to save this magnificent Asian big cat.


2. Polar Bears

The Arctic’s polar bears (Ursus maritimus) have become the iconic symbol of early victims of climate-induced habitat loss. Designated a threatened species for protection by the Endangered Species Act in the US, many polar bear populations will be vulnerable to extinction within the next century if warming trends in the Arctic continue at the current pace. WWF is supporting field research to better understand how climate change will affect polar bears and to develop adaptation strategies. WWF also works to protect critical polar bear habitat by working with governments and industry to reduce threats from shipping and oil and gas development in the region and with local communities to reduce human-bear conflict in areas where bears are already stranded on land for longer periods of time due to lack of ice.


3.Pacific walrus

The Arctic’s Bering and Chukchi Seas are home to the Pacific walrus (Odobenus rosmarus divergens), one of the latest victims of climate change. In September of this year, up to 200 dead walruses were spotted on the shore of the Chukchi Sea on Alaska's northwest coast. These animals use floating ice for resting, birthing and nursing calves, and protection from predators. With Arctic ice melting, the Pacific walrus is experiencing habitat loss to the extent that in September 2009, the US Fish and Wildlife Service announced that adding the walrus to the Endangered Species Act may be warranted.

4.Magellanic Penguin
Once threatened primarily by oil spills, Magellanic penguins (Spheniscus magellanicus), now face a larger threat as fish are displaced by warming ocean currents, forcing the birds to swim farther to find food. Last year hundreds of Magellanic penguins washed up on beaches around Rio de Janeiro, many emaciated or dead. Scientists have speculated that changes in ocean currents or temperatures, which may be related to climate change, could have been responsible for their movement more than a thousand miles north of their traditional nesting area in the southern tip of Argentina. Twelve out of the 17 penguin species are currently experiencing rapid population decline.

5.Leatherback Turtle

The largest marine turtle and one of the largest living reptiles, the leatherback turtle, (Dermochelys coriaceathe) has survived for more than a hundred million years, but is now facing extinction. Recent estimates of numbers show that this species is declining, particularly in the Pacific where as few as 2,300 adult females now remain, making the Pacific leatherback the world's most endangered marine turtle population. Atlantic turtle populations are more stable but scientists predict a decline due to the large numbers of adults being caught as bycatch and killed accidentally by fishing fleets. Additionally, rising sea levels and higher temperatures on Atlantic beaches pose a new threat to turtles and their offspring. Nest temperature strongly determines the sex of offspring, and a nest warming trend is reducing the number of male turtles. WWF aims to conserve leatherback turtle migratory pathways - by working with fisheries to decrease bycatch, by protecting critical nesting beaches, and by raising awareness so that local communities will protect turtles and their nests.

6.Bluefin Tuna

The Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is a large migratory fish found in the western and eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea. Bluefin tuna is the source of highest grade sushi. Bluefin tuna fisheries are near collapse and the species at serious risk of extinction if unsustainable fishing practices in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean are not stopped. A temporary ban on the global trade of bluefin tuna would allow the overexploited species to recover. WWF is encouraging restaurants, chefs, retailers, and consumers to stop serving, buying, selling, and eating endangered bluefin tuna until this amazing species shows signs of recovery.

7.Mountian Gorilla

Scientists consider mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei) to be a critically endangered gorilla subspecies, with about 720 surviving in the wild. More than 200 live in the Virunga National Park, located in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo, bordering Rwanda and Uganda. War has been waged in areas around the park, with gorillas subject to related threats such as poaching and loss of habitat. Conservation efforts have led to an increase in the Virunga population by 14 per cent in the last 12 years, while the mountain gorillas other home, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, has experienced population increases of 12 per cent over the past decade. Despite this success, the mountain gorillas status remains fragile, and WWF is working to save the great ape’s forest habitat in the mountains of the heart of Africa

8.Monarch Butterfly

Every year millions of delicate monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) migrate from North America to their winter habitat in Mexico. A well conserved and protected high-altitude pine and fir forest in Mexico is essential for the survival of the overwintering of monarchs, which has been recognized as an endangered biological phenomenon. The protection of its reproductive habitats in the United States and Canada is also crucial to saving this species migration, one of the most remarkable natural phenomena on the planet. WWF, in collaboration with the Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature, has designed an innovative conservation strategy to protect and restore the Monarch butterflies wintering habitat in Mexico, so butterflies are protected from extremes weather and other threats. WWF is also supporting local communities to establish trees nurseries that are reintroduced to the monarch butterfly reserve, creating at the same time new sources of income for the owners of the monarch forests.

9.Javan Rhinoceros

Listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List (2009), the Javan rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus) is considered to be one of the most endangered large mammals in the world with only two populations existing in the wild, for a total number of less than 60 animals. Highly prized as a commodity in traditional Asian medicine, Javan rhinos have also been brought to the verge of extinction by the conversion of forest habitat to farmland. WWF has been involved in protection and conservation of the Javan rhino since 1998, supporting forest rangers to undertake increased patrolling and protection activities, conducting surveys of the rhino population, raising awareness of the importance of the rhinos to local communities, and supporting park management. Last month, highly trained sniffer dogs were used to search for traces of the extremely rare and endangered Vietnamese Javan Rhinoceros, of which no more than a dozen are thought to exist. These samples will be analysed to better understand the gender mix and whether this small population has a chance of survival.

10.Giant Panda

An international symbol of conservation since WWF’s founding in 1961, the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) which numbers around 1,600 in the wild, faces an uncertain future. Its forest habitat in the mountainous areas of southwest China has become fragmented, creating a number of small and isolated populations. WWF has been active in giant panda conservation for nearly three decades by working working with the Chinese government to protect habitats through the creation of reserves and to help local communities become less dependent on forest resources. Over half of the habitat where pandas live is now protected, and corridors are being established to connect key panda populations. But the 1,600 remaining wild pandas are still living in over 20 geographically separate areas, and infratructure development is on the increase, so there’s still much more to be done.

11.Black Rhino

To monitor and protect black rhinos WWF focuses on better-integrated intelligence gathering networks on rhino poaching and trade, more antipoaching patrols and better equipped conservation law enforcement officers. Namibia has one of the largest black rhino populations in the world, with a majority found in Etosha National Park. Although their numbers are increasing, the black rhino is still under threat, particularly as Asian demand for rhino horn skyrockets. WWF works with Namibia’s wildlife services in Etosha to protect the country’s endangered black rhino population. This is being done through effective security monitoring, better biological management and wildlife-based tourism, with proceeds going directly back into


1.BlackRhino- Black Rhino are endanger animals because they are hunt by hunter who use there horns to go money.So black rhino should go to a safe places to life wild.Hunter kill black rhino for their horns to make tools or weapon. These hunter are killing the black rhino and there will not be any black rhino here.                                                                                                                   2.Elephant- Elephant are also endanger of becoming kill. Hunters kill elephant tusk to send it to china to a store to make things out of it.Elephant need to be protected by people more.Hunters use it tusk to sell it and get a lot of money for it tusk.                                                                           3.Polar Bear- Polar bear are a other endanger animal because the ice is melting. Scientist are trying to save the black rhino.Arctic sea ice is melting,making it harder for polar bears to survive in the wild.                                                                                                                                                               

hi every one i am taila santiago and i am really happy to join in the blog and i hope that you have a fun time on this awsome blog

the three endangered animals

   three endangered species are the sea kindley turtle,the cheetah and the black rhino the sea kindley turtle is being endangered because of fishing nets. they get caught in them and problems with oil leaks that humans cause to happen.the cheetah is also in the brink of extinction [ means died out] because  they get shot by hunters and farmers because hunters kill the species for sport and farmers kill them to protect their crops.and finally the black rhino the only problem is poachers. poachers kill rhinos and then sell their horns to score some cash. now you know three species that  are endangered.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Endangered Species

            Hello Lynasia Davis here I will be talking about 3 endangered species. One of the endangered species a rhino. People take there horns for money. Another one is giant pandas are facing a new threat the last of there food choice. One more is saving nemo scientist are working to protect the clown fish.

Hey guys!

I am so excited to be in this project.

Please help

The Black rhino is being killed for horns.      Horns that are being sold for cash. Who cares about cash we are animals to. All breathing organisms are animals.

3 Endangered animals

One of the endangered animals are Polar bears. The Polar  bears are losing their climate. The Polar bears home is melting. Also Panda bears are losing their food. The bamboo is being cut down by humans. The last endangered animal is the Black rhino. The horn is being cut off by poachers. The poacher are cutting it off and selling it. These are the animals that are endangered.
Hi my name is Cheryl I am going to do a project about black rhino people are hunting their horns for some reason their horns are valuable I am going to tell you more about the black rhino.Black rhino come from Africa like Kenya and more


i am happy to be in this project plz inviet me too be your friend

  • We have to save the  Rhinos!!!!!😍😍😍they are one of us.they are human!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Šwe need them.so here's a poem about them.....                                                        Oh rhino king I praise your beatiful mind on the idea to make sooo many rhinos in the  world,but Uam so dearly  sorry that your kind is being killed
         Hi my name is samya and i am very sad that the black rhinos are endangerd species.the black rhinos are endangerd because people are killing them for there  horens. so they can make colthes and medicene.SO please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 of the endangered animals


Abies koreana

 Occurs in sub-alpine areas on shallow mountain soils poor in humus content. Its elevational range is between 1,000 m and 1,900 m asl. The climate is cool temperate, with a summer monsoon bringing the annual precipitation above 1,600 mm. Abies koreana grows in pure stands or mixed with Betula ermanii, Taxus cuspidata, Prunus maximowiczii, P. sargentii, Cornus kousa with an understory of Sasa quelpartensis on Cheju Island. On the mainland it is also mixed with Picea jezoensis, Pinus koraiensis, P. densiflora, Taxus cuspidata, Quercus mongolica var. mandshurica, Cornus controversa, Acer spp. Fraxinus sieboldiana, Magnolia sieboldii, Sorbus commixta, and several genera of low shrubs, e.g. Juniperus, Deutzia, Ribes and Rhododendron. The forest is usually open and essentially dominated by conifers, with A. koreana a minor component. 

2.Abronia chiszari

This is an arboreal species found in the canopy of both cloud forest and rainforest. These lizards are restricted to forest with tall, mature trees. Any loss of such trees will be significantly detrimental to the population. It is not believed to be able to persist in disturbed habitat.  

3.Black Rhino

The black rhinoceros or hook-lipped rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) is a species of rhinoceros, native to eastern and central Africa including Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Angola. Although the rhinoceros is referred to as black, its colors vary from brown to gray.

                       THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!!!!


The black rhinoceros or hook-lipped rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) is a species of rhinoceros, native to eastern and central Africa including Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Angola. Although the rhinoceros is referred to as black, its colors vary from brown to gray.
The other African rhinoceros is the white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum). The word "white" in the name "white rhinoceros" is a misinterpretation of the Afrikaans word wyd, itself derived from the Dutch word wijd for wide, referring to its square upper lip, as opposed to the pointed or hooked lip of the black rhinoceros. These species are now sometimes referred to as the square-lipped (for white) or hook-lipped (for black) rhinoceros.The species overall is classified as critically endangered, and one subspecies, the western black rhinoceros, was declared extinct by the IUCN in 2011.



The reason why the black rhinos are being endanger is that poachers are killing them for their valuable horns used for making medicines, decorative pieces, piano chords and more. The Black Rhinos are an endangered species because at the time when their was plenty of rhinos everyone just kept on killing them until they hardly found anymore around (There are about 3600 rhinos left on planet earth).
AKA The hook-lipped rhino
Scientific name Diceros Bicornis
Current range Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Rwanda, S Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe
Height 1.6m
Weight 900 - 1,350kg
Status Critically endangered
Population 4,880
Rhino fact Black rhino are most active during the night-time when most of their foraging and drinking is done.
Common name: black rhino
Synonym: hook-lipped rhino
Scientific name: Diceros bicornis: “Di" meaning "two", "cerato" meaning "horn" in Greek and "bi" meaning "two", and "cornis" meaning "horn" in Latin. There are four or five subspecies of the black rhino:
  1. Western Diceros bicornis longipes
  2. Eastern Diceros bicornis michaeli
  3. SouthWest Diceros bicornis bicornis
  4. SouthCentral Diceros bicornis minor 
  5. And possibly Diceros bicornis bruceii.

Physical Characteristics

  • Size: the black rhino is the smaller of the two African species.
  • Weight: Adult males weigh up to 1,350 kg and females up to 900 kg. Weight at birth: 35-45kg.
  • Shoulder height: black rhinos stand at approximately 1.6 m tall at the shoulder
  • Skin colour: there is actually no colour difference between the white and black rhino. They are both of a dark grey colour, but this can vary depending on local soil conditions, (as rhinos tend to wallow in the mud or dust, their skin may vary in colour accordingly).
  • Hair: they only have hair on the ears, tail tips and eyelashes.
  • The horn: black rhino have two horns, which grow continually from the skin at their base throughout their life (like human fingernails).  Rhinos from different areas can have horns of different shapes and sizes also vary. The shape of the horn also differs between sexes: with males tending to have thicker horns, and the females often longer and thinner ones. The horn is comprised of thousands of compressed hair-like strands of keratin (like hair and fingernail fibres), making it extremely hard and tough, but it can be broken or split during fighting. The front (anterior) horn is longer than the rear (posterior) horn, averaging at around 50 cm long.
  • Distinctive characteristics: black rhinos are smaller than white rhinos, and have less of a pronounced hump on the back of their necks. They have a smaller head also, as unlike the white rhino, they are browsers, so eat from higher bushes or trees, requiring less muscle strength around their necks than white rhinos. The most distinguishable characteristic between a black and a white rhino is that black rhinos have a hooked lip, as opposed to a flat-based lip, which is related to their eating habits.



The places the black rhinos live are southern and eastern Africa, including: Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon, Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Angola. The black rhino can live in a range of habitats where there is sufficient resources to support them. When looking for a new residence, rhinos will tend to look for somewhere with a healthy supply of shrubs and woody herb and plat-life occur, and also a place with a nearby water source and mineral licks, that is within at least a 5- 10 mile radius. This spans a wide range of habitats in Africa, including: semi-desert savannah, woodlands, forests and wetlands.
