Some Endangered Animals of AsiaAn endangered species is a species whose population is so small that it is in danger of becoming extinct. Many of the endangered animals of Asia are in danger of dying out because of human activities that destroy their habitats and disrupt their food chains. We even hunt some of these animals for their skin, horn and body parts!
The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) and the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC) maintain a global list of endangered and vulnerable animal species called the Red List.
