Blog 2 Endangered Species

Published on 31 May 2024 at 21:22

Animals all over the world are now becoming endangered due to people hunting and the animals not being able to survive on their own due to environment changes. They can also become endangered due to pollution, habitat loss and climate change. This is causing the Earth to now be in the 6th mass extinction, the last extinction was 65 million years ago with the dinosaurs. Extinctions do naturally occur but the one that is happening now is mainly because of humans. The population continues to grow which means more room needs to be made for people causing the animals to be pushed out of their homes. An example of extinction could be how the African Elephants use to have a population of 1.3 million elephants but now it's 600,000 and that is being of poachers killing them to take their tusk.
