Ever wondered how life would be if there were no animals on this planet? Well, life wouldn’t be the same because animals may seem insignificant or very dangerous to human beings. But each one of these animals plays a very crucial role in the ecological system.

Wildlife plays a very significant role by harmonizing the environment. Different species of animals, from large to small, such as; The Rhinos, Elephant, Pangolin etc. are almost extinct. Illegal trade of animals is happening everywhere in the world, and its value is roughly 7-23 billion US dollars. Between the year 2013 and 2016, nearly 20 tons of Pangolin scales are held from prohibited shipment in Africa. If no action is taken against this illegal poaching, these precious animals will disappear from the face of this earth. Below is a list of top ten animals that are almost extinct.

10. Giant Panda


It is also known as panda bear. Gaint panda originates from central China. It is a treasure here in China and is adored all over the world. This panda has white and black colors on its body. Researches shows that adult pandas can live up to 30 years. However, this is not always the case. Because both the Cubs and adult pandas die because of many predators such as the yellow-throated martens and the snow leopard that kill and consume this animal. In particular, pandas are in danger of extinction due to loss and disintegration of habitat, and by people hunting other animals and harvesting plants from the forests. The most depraving thing is that they are also vulnerable to the loss of habitat and destruction. Nevertheless, only humans can assurance a great opportunity for the pandas to continue living by protecting them and the environment they live.
