Probably not.
These animals and plants are either endangered or threatened
Endangered- close to being extinct only few of these certain animals or plants are left

Threatened- soon may become endangered

Extinct- no where on this Earth are there any more of these plants or animals , gone
Why animals are endangered or threatened or Extinct


The reason why some animals are endangered is because their habitati or home is disappearing due to human settlement. If an endangered animals population drops to 0 it is extinct and no where you look will you ever see it again. The dinosaurs are extinct.


Why it matters now


If an animal goes extinct it can cause a whole unbalance on its food chain which an lead to an unbalance to a food web. A food chain shows how each animals gets its food.

Here is an example


plant - mouse - snake - owl

Say the mouse become extinct the snake's food is gone and the snake becomes extinct because it has no food. So no mouse no snake. The owl eats the snake so if the snake is gone the owl has no food and it will become extinct.

Now this is how it will look like

plant - _____ - _____ - ___


If one species dies all the species that eat it will die out too.


What is a food web

A food web is a bunch of food chains together.

so if a food chain dies like the example above
the food chain that connects to it will be even more threatened to being endangered

How YOU yes YOU can help


What do all animals need?................. A habitat

Most animals' habitat are in woody areas like FORESTS. Do you have a pencil , do you have paper? Your answer is most likely yes. Trees in FORESTS are cut down every day to make paper in your text books and the pencils you use to write with. Not to mention other items like furniture. Well you can recycle or reuse paper by seperating regular trash and paper and bringing paper to you local recycling center. Some centers also give you cash for the recycling items you bring. You can also simply recycle by using both sides of the paper. But thats just you,imagine if your whole school does it. You can talk to your princible or headmaster or headmistress about recycling the schools paper. Almost 90%of landfills are filled with paper products and other recycables.


Aren't they cute? Well every day their HABBIT IS DISAPPEARING. What monster is doing this to these cute cubs. HUMANS. Shocking yes , Unstoppable no. The Polar Bears live on ice but due to global warming the ice is melting. Glaciers 20 years ago used to move 1-2" a day but now they move up to 2ft a day! As the ice disappears so will the polar bears and seals and other animals that live in the artic cold. Hope is not lost for penguins polar bears and seals etc etc. The simplist way you can help is by carpooling and making sure to turn of light bulbs when not in use. Same with all electronics. Carpooling works because a car's exhaust (a pipe where smoke comes out) is carbon monoxide (a poison) rises to the air and makes the air hotter result : GLOBAL WARMING .
Not smoking (I know most kids don't) but if you know someone who does POLITELY if you don't know them to try to stop. But don't be to hard cause when you start smoking you become addicted and can't stop.
KIDS CAN HELP
Don't think kids can't help because we're young. One major thing you can do is RAISE AWARENESS. Its ok to disagree on some things. But this is not! This is something you CANNOT IGNORE. If you do its like someone is destroying your house and and EVERYONE doesn't mind and ignores it. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? We have been put on this Earth to not only live but to create BUT NOT to destroy. Our POWER IS BEING USED TO DESTROY THINGS UNCONCIOULY.
