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.

Do these species have a right to survive or do we have a right to drive them to extinction? Jonathan Baillie, Zoological Society of London

  • First time a list with most endangered has been published
  • 8,000 scientists identified the animals, plants and fungi
  • Report's authors worry less "useful" species will not survive
  • null

There is a fear among some conservationists that many of the plants and fungi listed will not be saved or gain public attention because they don't benefit humans.

"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.

100 most endangered species listed with this question: Are they worth saving?

The link to the news article is broken.

But more importantly, whoever put that news article together also broke the link to the actual report, so you cant find the actual pdf file put together by the Zoological Society of London and the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

But I found it ... here
