These rare animals might soon go extinct

Hunting, pollution, deforestation, and habitat destruction put loads of species under threat. These species become true gems of the animal kingdom and live on the verge of becoming extinct. On the bright side, there are thousands of people and hundreds of organizations that work hard on preserving, conserving, and helping these amazing animals to survive. Just think about this: a group of people stood guard 24/7 to watch Canada’s most endangered mammal; the marmot, to prevent the last individuals from being eaten by predators!

We love animals and know that many of you feel the same way about them. Let’s contemplate these beauties while we can.

So scroll down to look at these rare animals might soon go extinct.

Meet Snowflake; a famous albino gorilla who knew a thing or 2 about love! He had offspring with 3 different females during his 36 years of life at the Barcelona Zoo. And it’s really cool of him, because the habitats of his species are suffering from deforestation, farming, and the over-grazing of other animals.

Hooded seals have an elastic nasal membrane or hood on their heads and can inflate them by sending blood to the area. This often happens when another male approaches the seal’s female partner.

Omura’s whale

Found near the coast of Madagascar in 2013, this small whale is an enigma in itself. It’s pale on the one side and dark on the other and prefers to stay in tropical waters, which is unusual for whale species. These waters don’t provide much food, so how Omura’s whales feed is quite a mystery.

Cassowary

It is the third-tallest and second-heaviest bird in the world after the ostrich and emu. The southern cassowary is also one of the most dangerous birds, as its fierce kick can be fatal for a human or other smaller creature.

Spectacled bear

Shy, peaceful, and solitary animals, these bears have a perfect personality and a peculiar look due to light patches of fur around their eyes. Believe it or not, they are great tree climbers, as their favorite (and almost only) source of food; the Bromelia plant grows high on trees.
