Hi Friends... this is a week old News but I checked this is not proted here anf thought to share with you all. It is to create awareness about the
Wild life creatures and we need to think How to Save them. This is not only our world and we need to learn to share with other being. We should not
keep living destroy others. We should do something to save those species.
The 100 most endangered species on the planet have been identified in a first-of-its-kind list. Announced during the International Union for the
Conservation of Nature's World Conservation Congress in Jeju, South Korea, the list is the culmination of work by 8,000 scientists who identified the
animals, plants and fungi from 48 countries that are most in danger of extinction.

"All the species listed are unique and irreplaceable. If they vanish, no amount of money can bring them back," said the report's co-author Ellen
Butcher, who is also from the ZSL. "However, if we take immediate action we can give them a fighting chance for survival."
Although the value of some species may not appear obvious at first, all species in fact contribute in their way to the healthy functioning of the
planet.All species have a value to nature and thus in turn to humans.
endangered species listed with this question: Are they worth saving?
