Some of the dangers they face are drought, bushfires, vehicle accidents, being shot and loss of habitat due to new houses and shopping centres being built. Foxes are introduced predators that kill the smaller of the species. Feral dogs and cats also prey on smaller wallabies and the joeys of larger kangaroos.

Black-footed ferrets have a distinctive black mask on the face, and have hairy, long, slender bodies and short legs. They come with a bad attitude as well, as shared by specialist Kimberly Fraser, member of the release program. The creatures are nocturnal by nature, with their black eyes, spending about 90% of their days underground. They usually leave the underground to hunt their meals, consisting mainly of prairie dogs. The USFWS’s Black-Footed Ferret Recovery Program was first created in 1996 to help restore the species’ population.
Last, the farmers and ranchers whose cattle land has been invaded by the prairie dogs are eradicating them. Although the loss of prairie dogs is the main logic behind the endangerment of the black-footed ferrets, a few other factors contribute as well. As well as most small animals, black-footed ferrets are prey.
Unlike lions, leopards and cheetahs, tigers prefer to live in densely covered land where they can hide in tall grasses, camouflaged by their dark stripes, and ambush their prey. IV. Now, the tiger in Asia are increasingly threatened with extinction and an average life of tigers in the Asian countries are increasingly worrying. V. A few of the remaining endangered subspecies may survive only in zoos others will live only in stories, pictures and myths, never again to roam the earth. (Transition: Let’s begin by looking

The distribution of the House Mouse is statewide. The House Mouse is an invasive species that is currently treated as a pest. The House Mouse is not native to Florida and can become an issue in developed areas.

That 's lucky for us because of the zebra and a few of his other relatives. Several types of wild-ass have the nasty tendency to bite people and not let
A managed metapopualtion approach defined as “a set of discrete populations of the same species, in the same general geographical area, that may exchange individuals through migration, dispersal, or human-mediated movement”, has been put forward to adress and reduce the undesirable effects of isolated sub-populations. There are estimated 144 wild dog in 19 packs in the Kruger National Park (Lindsey and Davies-Mostert 2009) . This fluctuating population is considered to be the only viable wild population of wild dogs in South Africa (Mills, et al. 1998). There are an additional three known populations in South Africa: The unmanaged wild dog population outside of protected areas, occur mostly on privately owned properties (i.e.
Australia is home to diverse fauna and flora, many of them are on the brink of extinction. Unfortunately, Orange-bellied parrots is one of them, it’s time for Aussie to start saving these beautiful creatures. The Orange-bellied Parrots Many of the Victorian animals are under extreme threats due to human over exploration, a lot of these lovely, harmless animals are on the way to extinction or it has already extinct in the wild.

Neophema chrysogaster is named after their unique orange feathers around its belly, it also has cute little beaks that
The Bilby, before European settlement where widely spread over around 70% of the Australian mainland than reduced to extinction in some states of Australia due to habitat loss and competition and predation from many introduced species. Through many reintroduction programs across Australia there population has now raised. The Greater Bilby is a nocturnal bandicoot, the largest of the family of marsupials. They have an excellent sense of smell and sharp hearing which they rely on as they have poor vision. Bilbies are omnivores, they eat things such as seeds, spiders, insects and their larvae, bulbs, fruit, fungi and small animals.

Island foxes inhabit the semi-arid Channel Islands of California. Though most of those islands have been modified to suit human living, these foxes prefer to remain in the shrubby, woodland area of the island. Their role in the environment is predator. By this, they reduce the number of insects, native fruits, deer mice, birds, and
