The earth is a home not only for us humans, but also for thousands of other species of living beings — large and small, predatory and friendly, colorful and not so much. Be that as it may, each of these species is unique, and its preservation on our planet is very important for the natural balance.
Unfortunately, it is man who is the main cause of the extinction of many animals. Okapi and quokka, lori and dugong, kakapo and palm thief — these and other animal species are on the verge of extinction and may soon disappear forever. Let's be kinder to nature and those with whom we share our home!
The Bearded Man
Golden snub - nosed monkeys
Currently, fishing for dugongs with nets is prohibited and they are extracted with harpoons from boats. Mining is allowed as a traditional trade of aboriginal peoples. The dugong is listed in The Red Book of the International Union for Conservation of Nature with the status of "vulnerable species".
Lori (Loris elusive)
Ornamental bird - eater
Markhur (screw-horned goat)
Quokka (short-tailed kangaroo)
Although okapi was discovered several centuries ago, few people still believe that this strange creature can be real. Today you can find them only in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where there are about 10-20 thousand of them left.
