Gloabally endangered species

Tigers. We have lost 97% of our wild tigers in just over a century. With as few as 3,200 remaining, action is needed to increase and strengthen their habitat and protect the species from major threats such as poaching.


Gorillas Gorillas are some of the most powerful and striking animals, not only for their size and force, but also for their gentle human like behavior. They play a crucial role in local biodiversity, roaming through large territories and helping, for example, to spread the seeds of the fruit they consume.


Polar Bears. Polar bears help us gain an understanding of what is happening throughout the Arctic, as a polar bear at risk may signal something is wrong elsewhere in the arctic marine ecosystem.

Large carnivores - those that are at the apex  or top of the food chain - are particularly sensitive indicators of the health of an ecosystem... in this case, the Arctic.

All recent indicators show that sea ice in the Arctic is melting at an alarming rate, a problem that needs to be addressed immediately if polar bears, and other species unique to the region, are to survive.


Giant Pandas.

  • In 2004, a survey counted 1,600 pandas in the wild
  • An adult panda can weigh about 100-150kg and grow up to 150cm
  • Pandas have the digestive system of a carnivore, but they have adapted to a vegetarian diet of bamboos.
  • A panda may eat 12-38kg of bamboo a day
  •  The panda cub is 1/900th the size of its mother, one of the smallest newborn mammals relative to its mother's size.
  • Pandas are good tree climbers.
  • When breeding, pandas require at least 30km² to support them over the short term.



Rhinos. Rhinos once roamed throughout Eurasia and Africa, and were known to early Europeans who depicted them in cave paintings.Within historical times, they were still widespread across Africa's savannas and Asia's tropical forests. But today, very few rhinos survive outside national parks and reserves.Of the 3 Asian rhino species – Sumatran, Javan and greater one-horned – only one is showing signs of conservation success. Loss of habitat and the ongoing threat of poaching continue to push these animals to the brink. While the two African rhino species – black rhino and white rhino – are increasing in number, both species remain threatened by poaching, and some populations are at serious risk of extinction.


Marine turtles. For more than 100 million years marine turtles have covered vast distances across the world's oceans, performing a vital and integral role in marine and coastal ecosystems. Over the last 200 years human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. Urgent global action is needed to ensure their future.
