The World's Most Endangered Animals

Welcome to the World's Most Endangered Animals website. In this site you can find information on the ever increasing number of all the endangered animals in the world.

For every species that is living today, maybe a thousand more have lived before and became extinct. The top reason for animals becoming extinct is because of loss of habitat. Many rainforests are being destroyed, along with the hundreds of animals which live in it, for space to build homes for the increasing size of the human population and because of hunting by man. For example the white tiger, during the last century scientists had estimated that the population of this animal was once a large 40,000 but has since dropped to under 2,000. This demonstrates that the tiger and all the other beautiful species of animals which are nearly extinct desperately need our help to be saved.
