There are three known subspecies: while two of them are found in the islands of Sumatra and Borneo, the third is believed to be extinct. Poaching poses the greatest threat to these animals. The largest sea turtle species are migratory in nature, crossing both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Though globally leatherback turtles are listed as vulnerable, certain subspecies are critically endangered due to intense egg collection and fisheries bycatch.

These flightless birds once inhabited the Guam Island in large numbers before the island was invaded by brown tree snakes that led to their predation and subsequent plummeting of their number. Today, they are confined to a captive-breeding facility in Guam and across 14 zoos in the USA. In the last couple of decades, efforts have been made to release small batches of rails in controlled environment to help promote their breeding in the wild. The giant sengis are found in two coastal habitats on the south-eastern edge of Kenya.

Fragmentation of habitat poses a major threat to their existence.

A mere to adult specimens of the bird are left confined to certain regions of Morocco and parts of Syria. Though the birds have been marked as critically endangered, they have shown significant increase in their numbers in the last few years. These mammals, found in alpine and subalpine boulderfields and rocky scree in south-eastern Australia, were designated as extinct till However, the rediscovery of a single living specimen in a ski club lodge on Mount Hotham, Victoria, in , revived the hope of their survival.

At present, there are only three known populations, with a total population of less than 2, Destruction of their habitat is the major reason for their dwindling numbers. Indigenously Australian, these shy animals had completely disappeared in the early 20th century, after the loss of their only two known habitats in southern Queensland and in New South Wales. According to a census , wombats are said to have survived after efforts were made to protect its habitat. Pictured Athlete Jana Pittman L and a zookeeper pose with a wombat during a fundraising event to save the northern hairy-nosed wombats at the Australian Museum in Sydney, Australia, on November 17, Today, though over , elephants can be found in sub-regions of South Africa, the numbers are not enough to put these giants of animals out of the danger list.

The deadly chytrid fungus resulted in the extinction of the entire species of the animal, barring one. A concentrated effort by several NGOs and animal conservation organisations has provided a new lease of life to the black-footed ferret, once considered to be extinct in the wild. Currently, there are nearly 1, ferrets present across the North American grasslands.

Habitat loss and disease are the key threats to their population. They are known to be the slowest animals in the world—so slow that algae grows on their back giving them a natural cover from predators. Found only in Isla Escudo de Veraguas, an isolated Panamanian island in the Caribbean, their numbers have dwindled due to destruction of habitat.

Also known as Addax antelope, these animals thrived in the extreme climate of the Sahara desert for thousands of years. However, destruction of habitat and their frenzied hunting by modern weapons have forced its population to the verge of extinction. Currently, not more than specimens of the animal remain in the wild. This freshwater species is on the verge of extinction due to habitat destruction, hunting and dynamite fishing.

Only a handful of these animals survive in the wild presently and aggressive conservation efforts are on to protect them from going extinct. After its last sighting in , three specimens of pygmy tarsier were rediscovered 85 years later in They are commonly found in the eastern Pacific shores from Alaska to Chile. From to , there was a mammoth increase in the commercial fishing activity of this species in California, USA, alone—dramatically reducing their numbers to a few thousands, so much so that the animal has been designated as extinct in several of their former habitats.

Commonly referred to as "land lobster," this nocturnal insect was primarily found in Lord Howe Island in the Tasman Sea. However, in , the introduction of black rats by a ship that had run aground near the island led to the insects' massive predation and has dwindled their number to not more than 30 specimens at present. The last surviving subspecies of wild horse, they once freely roamed the steppe along the Mongolia-China border.

Subsequent capturing by human beings and interbreeding with domesticated horses made their numbers plummet in the wild. Today, only about of the remaining 1, Przewalski's horses are found in the wild. On November 15, , a park ranger in Israel found one specimen of the Hula painted frog, considered extinct since the s; a few days later, the discovery of a second specimen revived the hopes of its survival.

He climbed North Korea's highest peak? Click to expand. Replay Video. Our team of vets took the cub to the veterinary hospital on site, to run tests and give him extra care and attention. Sadly, his condition deteriorated rapidly, and he became unable to walk. The veterinary team, alongside keepers, made the difficult decision to put him to sleep.

Our other three cubs are in good health, and remain with mum Naya and dad Botzman in their enclosure. They're coming on leaps and bounds in their play, coordination and weaning. We have also started to see some more individual personalities appearing, with some being more confident and playful than the others. Though Botzman still sometimes prefers to sit up on the platform away from the hustle and bustle surrounding the cubs, we are seeing the whole family being more and more comfortable together.

They have also all been appreciating a bit of a lapse in the hot weather and have been more active during the day rather than early morning and late afternoon. However during the periods of heavy rain we have seen the cubs all snuggling up in the house or outside den. The cubs are almost seven weeks old and are now proper miniature versions of their parents in both looks and personalities. They are getting more adventurous and confident by the day and their playfulness is something we have been able to see a real difference in over the last week.

They have been practicing climbing on logs, running around and playfully biting and wrestling with each other. With the cubs now strong and steady on their feet we have put a small amount of water in the pool for the cubs and adults to enjoy in the continuing heatwave. We have also seen the cubs begin to take an interest in meat with lots of sniffing, licking and attempted chewing.

On a couple of occasions we have found the whole family in the house together in the morning!

We have had a lot of questions surrounding visitors only being able to see some of the cubs and not all four. We have noticed that they have developed their own personal favourite areas to hang out - some prefer resting in the outside den and some prefer staying out of the den. Despite this there is no need to worry as Naya is still very attentive to all of the cubs and on occasions all four can still be seen together!

This week keepers and visitors alike have been bowled over by the real change in the behaviour of the cubs — they have become much more confident and adventurous! Naya continues to be an extremely nurturing and attentive mum, but has had her patience well and truly tested this week, as the cubs have started wandering off in all directions! Naya initially brought one cub up to Botzman, keeping a very close eye over the meeting.

After around 10 minutes Botzman just walked away. We hope they will get closer and develop a relationship over the coming days and weeks. Keep your eyes peeled for the cubs in their new favourite hiding spots — in the corner by the waterfall, back in the outside den or under shady bushes in the paddock. Patient visitors may spot them as they continue to grow and explore — if you listen carefully, you may also be able to hear them calling to Naya.

It's a very special International Tiger Day at the Zoo this year as our cubs are five weeks old. They are still tucked under their den, and with the hot weather continuing they have been emerging rarely during the day and instead focusing their feeds and appearances in the early morning and late evening.

So although visible to visitors, patience is still required! Keepers have been entering the paddock on a daily basis now to check the cubs visually and service the paddock. As the cubs have been growing rapidly, we have started to introduce them to meat so they get used to the sight and smell in preparation for them starting to have a nibble in the coming weeks. To do this we mix minced venison and beef into meatballs and place a few of them under the den, replacing them daily and keeping an noting if any has gone. Over the next few weeks we will continue this process until we know the cubs are regularly consuming some meat.

Once we know this, we will start allowing Naya to bring proper meat out to the cubs. The cubs are continuing to grow bigger and stronger by the day and are now almost one month old.

As in the previous week, Naya has been giving the cubs more independence and appears to now feed the cubs much less frequently now they are a bit older and bigger. She climbed back on to The Ark , which was the nickname of their boat. It had potted plants on the roof and wild animals painted on both sides. Sophie got up with a sigh. Tom was hiding. He had made up his mind about half an hour earlier and had tiptoed through the living room and off the houseboat.

His mother and sister were too busy to notice — they were talking about a new ocelot that had arrived at London Zoo, where Mrs Nightingale worked as Chief Vet. He ran along the towpath and climbed up the bank towards the wall that separated the canal from the street. Then he walked along the wall for about ten metres, wobbling and veering from one side to the other, before lowering himself down off the end. He was now in the field behind the London Zoo car park, creeping through the long grass.

When he reached an iron gate, he vaulted over, landing in the local boat repair yard. This was where barges were taken out of the water to be fixed or repainted or resealed. A small red houseboat was currently in the dry dock, propped up on wooden trestles, with half its hull missing. He quickly slid behind it, and sat down next to a tree.

He was completely out of sight. He got his portable games console out of his pocket and started to play Ninja Hippos. Five minutes later, Sophie stuck her head behind the shed.
