Orangutans — 10 animals on the verge of extinction
Very sad situation. But I think we can put humans on the list as well. We are masters of our own downfall as we destroy this beautiful, beautiful planet.
Since many of these species are becoming extinct because of loss of their habitats, one way humans throughout the world can protect them is by practicing birth control. This would reduce populations worldwide, and decrease the need for raw materials, such as wood, to build homes. We would therefore decrease our encroachment on their habitats. Industry also must consider the consequences of unchecked greed on animals. Unfortunately, the bottom line usually wins.
