c\ About the Red Book:
Many of these animals are in danger. Many of them are very rare or extinct. They are dying, because man had destroyed their homes. You know that a lot of forests are damaged, so these creatures are in danger. Every ten minutes one kind of animals or plant or insect disappears. The wild animals have no space to move, no grass to eat, no water to drink

d\ It’s interesting to know….

  • 15,000,000 big cats – tigers, snow leopards, jaguars and lynxes – are killed every year for their skin. Their skin is used to make fur coats and jackets which are sold at a very high price, quality lynx coat, for example, costs at least $10,000. The main exporter of cat skins is South America, and they are imported by the United States and Japan.
  • 8 big cats are killed to make one fur coat.
  • Only several hundreds of rhinos are left in Asia.
  • About 3,000,000 kangaroos are hunted every year.
  • Before 1900s 60 million buffalos were killed.
  • Over 40,000 monkeys are caught every year.
  • In the early 1900s about 300 dolphins and 30 sea turtles were poisoned by water pollution every year.
  • Today many elephants in Africa are dying because they do not have enough food to eat and space to live.

                                        

Endangered Animals and Ocean Species  in Our Planet.

There is a big zoo in Shymkent. I think it is interesting to go to the zoo, but I also find it depressing. I don’t think that people ought to put animals in those cages. Animals should be living in nature. But they got treatment in the zoo. Probably they have become used to the zoo and could not live in nature now.

 

The Big Panda is the emblem of  the World Wild Fund (WWF).
