    Espèces en péril


     

     

                                                 Some extinct or endangered species

     

    Life on Earth is disappearing fast and will continue to do unless urgent action is taken.

    In September 2007 there were 41,415 species on the 'Red List' and 16,306 of them are threatened with extinction.

         90% of threatened species are at risk from human activities.

    Here are some animals critically endangered :

                                                                    

      Western lowland Gorilla  (Africa )                                                       Sumatran Orangutan

                                                                    

           The Mauritius Parakeet                                                                   The Madagascar Flying Fox (bat)

    In 2007 corals have been added to the Red List for the first time

    Wellington's Solitary Coral (Galapagos)(possibly extinct)

    Not only animals but also trees and plants can be in a difficult situation.

    If you want to know more about this problem consult

    IUCN : The World Conservation Union

     Our lives are inextricably linked with biodiversity and its protection is essential for our very survival.
