Worth billions of dollars every year, promptly following drugs, firearms, and human trafficking, animal poaching is the illegal act of slaughtering or capturing animals. Due to the approximated tens of millions of animals being poached for their fur, shells, horns, etcetera, there is a rapid decline in population, causing a myriad of species to confront endangerment and possible extinction. Furthermore, some of the most at risk animals include, but are not limited to, sea turtles, elephants, tigers, rhinoceroses, lemurs, and gorillas. This illicit trade is mainly generated by human avarice, the belief that some animal parts possess medicinal properties, and the lack of other livelihood opportunities. To place an approximated price on these
According to Defenders of Wildlife, loss of habitat and habitat fragmentation due to human activity is the number one threat to Florida Panthers, and death by vehicle collision is the number one cause of human related mortality (Threats to Florida Panthers).

A three-year old boy fell into the enclosure of a good friend of mine and a fellow gorilla, Harambe. The boy was then pulled and dragged by Harambe. A zoo worker then saw what transpired and fearing for the boy’s life, my good friend was gunned down to death. Harambe and me both belong to the species called Gorilla gorilla, or simply known as lowland gorillas.

Poaching isn’t just about trespassing it is also about the taking of game while there are not in season or going over the legal limit to hunt. Some of the worst cases of poaching happen to animals that are very near extinction. Extinction is where a living creature no longer exists on planet earth, because of the absence of the opposite sex for which it can’t breed, or because hunter kill the species so fast that they don't have time to breed and repopulate their herd.
A huge problem our current world is facing is the several endangered species. One of these species that’s on the verge of extinction is the koala. This might come to a surprise for many as “how could these cute and furry little creatures be endangered?” Sadly, koalas have not been getting the attention needed to help save them.

Tigers are likely to go extinct. After years of saving the tigers, what danger could still exist for these creatures? In the article, “6 Reasons We Should Still Worry About Tigers Survival of The Big Cats in The Wild is Far from Guaranteed,” written by John R. Platt, he informs the reader that even though the number of tigers living in the wild has improved, humans are still threatening the tiger’s existence. All articles have their weak and strong points. This article is no exception as it too shares these two points, strong and weak.
Currently, elephants are endangered because humans are selfish and want to take their ivory tusks. Humans have also depleted the tiger population down to less than 2,500 tigers in the whole world.

Their prey’s population would increase, and their predator’s population would decrease due to their being nothing for it to eat.

Frogs and koalas are both endangered animals. They are both having some complications with their habitats. But they have dissimilar things as well. Such as, living, food, and their safety.

They have social impacts, such as their endangerment of people and domesticated pets that are unaware of the risk they pose, and the blocking of drains and fouling of swimming pools. They also pose a health hazard as they are known to feed on human faeces, which means that they can acquire human diseases, such as Salmonella, and pass them on through their eggs. They impact the economy by placing a significant strain on the financial resources of land managers because of the ongoing need for research and management. Due to the decline in bush tucker species because of cane toad consumption, such as monitor lizards, snakes and turtles can affect Aboriginal communities culturally and economically. Lastly, there are ethical issues relating to the methods of collecting, euthanasia and disposing of the toads.
