10 of the Most Endangered Species in the World

Animals die every day. Some due to natural causes, which is sad, but it is a part of life. Some however, are killed by hunters who want to mount their tusks and antlers and use their skins as rugs. Others are murdered because their furs are make valuable coats; the minks are tortured just so people can have longer eyelashes and collars to keep them looking stylish. And some are slain for their meat.


And although not all the animals are killed by humans, some are killed because of our impact on the planet. No animal is more important than the other; we all have our part to play in the circle of life, but we had to limit the number of animals featured on this list because there are over 16,000 endangered species in the world. Let’s take a look at 10 of the most endangered animals in the world.
