Extractions: The purpose of this ongoing project is to allow students from all over the world a chance to help foster knowledge and appreciation for the plight of the many thousands of endangered animals of the Earth. Students will gain valuable skills for researching, collaborating and telecommunicating while sharing their information with people around the world. Endangered Specie.com EndangeredSpecie.com is dedicated to providing all the best endangered species information, links, books, and publications regarding rare and endangered species. This site also includes information about conservation efforts and endangered species organizations that are dedicated to saving and preserving the world's most endangered wildlife and plant life.

Extractions: BLACK RHINOCEROS Africa Unknown The name "rhino" conjures up the image of a prehistoric beast, a huge creature with skin of armor. This image is not surprising, since these intelligent and affectionate creatures have inhabited the Earth for 60 million years. An extinct species of rhino that lived in Mongolia, (Baluchitherium grangeri), was the largest land mammal of all time. This hornless rhinoceros stood 18 feet (five and one-half meters) at the shoulder, was 27 feet (eight meters) long, and probably weighed 25 tons (23 metric tons), four times as much as today's African bull elephant. This species probably died out because of climate change. The rhino may be the source of the belief in unicorns, legendary animals whose horn was said to be a panacea for all types of ailments. In 1298, the Venetian explorer Marco Polo described Sumatran rhinos as unicorns saying: There are wild elephants in the country, and numerous unicorns, which are very nearly as big. They have hair like that of a buffalo, feet like those of an elephant, and a horn in the middle of the forehead, which is black and very thick.

Extractions: Line art (1.7 K image) Line art (2.3 K image) Line art (7.0 K image) [US FWS Line Art by Robert Savannah] Prehistoric rhinoceroses, some larger than elephants, some the size of wolves, were found on every continent except South America and Australia. Today, there are five species of rhino: two African species and three Asian. The African species are the white, or square-lipped, and the black rhinos. Both species have two horns. Of the Asian species, the Indian and the Javan each have a single horn, while the Sumatran rhino has two. The word rhinoceros means "horn-nosed," and rhinos use their horns for several purposes. They use them to shovel the ground for mineral salt; to fight over territory or a female, or during courtship; and to defend themselves and their young against lions, tigers and hyenas. Like buffalos and elephants, rhinos are very near-sighted. They can only see clearly up to about 30 feet away. The lateral placement of their eyes causes them to turn their heads from side to side to see straight ahead. Rhinos' extremely acute senses of hearing and smell compensate for their poor eyesight. Rhinos are able to pinpoint the origin of a sound and charge at it. They use their highly developed sense of smell to identify other rhinos, keep track of their young and identify predators.

Extractions: Photographer Unknown The black rhinoceros eats plants and branches of trees or bushes. Every year the mom has one baby. When the baby grows bigger the mom has another baby. The black rhinoceros is black and has wrinkly skin. The animals habitat is the grasslands. The black rhinoceros lives from Somalia to South Africa. They kill black rhinoceros for their horns and bones. They use the horns for handles and medicine. Now people are sawing off their horns so people won't hurt them. I liked to draw the rhinoceros. The horns are very valuable. I used books and information from the internet. Return to the
Extractions: Learn more about the various search components in the user interface The search function provides numerous ways in which the database can be interrogated to retrieve information. This help file attempts to provide some guidance to users on how the various search options work and how best they should be used. The term 'species' is used throughout this help file in a general sense to indicate any taxonomic level, but specific searches for 'subspecies and varieties' or 'stocks and subpopulations' need to be specified under ' What taxa do you want to see? As discussed in the Introduction on the main page, it is important to note that NOT every animal and plant species will be found in this database. The database contains ONLY those species which have been assessed using the 1994 or 2001 IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria and which have been listed as Extinct (EX), Extinct in the Wild (EW), Critically Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN), Vulnerable (VU), Near Threatened (LR/nt or NT), Lower Risk/conservation dependent (LR/cd), Data Deficient (DD) or Least Concern (LR/lc or LC). The vast majority of species, particularly of plants, reptiles, amphibia, fish and invertebrates, will be Not Evaluated (NE). In addition, as mentioned in the Introduction , a large number of Least Concern (LC) species have not as yet been recorded in the Red List database. Searches for any species in these latter two categories will be unsuccessful.
Extractions: SEARCH IFAW Home Endangered elephants, gorillas and rhinoceros receive the relief services they need through IFAW's global campaigns to save threatened species and habitat. We focus on three major animal conservation areas: reducing commercial exploitation and trade, saving animals in distress, and preserving habitat. The IFAW supports CITES efforts to help protect animals who are being exploited due to illegal wildlife trade. IFAW's Emergency Relief Team helps national and local organizations to save animals when natural and man made disasters occur. Our rapid response capabilities allow us to save animals that might otherwise be lost to storms, oil spills and other disasters. We also fight habitat destruction around the world including protecting animals from the effects of coastal habitat devastation, mining, wetland destruction and much more. Recent IFAW efforts include these animal conservation and habitat preservation programs: Gorilla and Elephant preservation: A US$30,000 donation to boost the work of the Great Ape Survival Project (GRASP)

Extractions: Animals/Fish/Birds/Plants Protecting Endangered Species What is the problem? Animals and plants that are having trouble surviving in today's world are classified as either endangered or threatened. Endangered Species - Those animals or plants with so few individual survivors that the species could soon become extinct over all or most of its natural range. (Examples include: the Whopping Crane in North America, the Giant Panda, the California Condor, the Snow Leopard and the Black Rhino.) Threatened Species - Those animals or plants still abundant in their natural range but declining in numbers and likely to become endangered. (Examples are: the Bald Eagle, the Grizzly Bear and the American Alligator.) What's being done? Since "extinct" is forever, biologists and environmentalists are working together to manage and protect biodiversity (the ability of many different species to thrive within a particular region). Here are three ways they do it:

Extractions: There are basically two ways to protect wildlife. Most biologists believe that the most effective approach is to protect the ecosystems in which the plants and animals belong. This involves establishing and protecting natural wildlife areas in which the native species are balanced and preserved, while the non-native species are removed. The primary problem with this system is that only 6% of the world's land area is currently protected as wildlife sanctuary, and with a rapidly growing human population, is it not likely that other land can set aside for this purpose. Throughout most of its existence, the Endangered Species Act has been under pressure from groups that believe it unfairly restricts their ability to do business. Many logging companies, developers, miners, and others argue that the Act is ineffective and an unnecessary expense since it has removed only seven species from the list and only 20 have recovered sufficiently to be reclassified from endangered to threatened. Senator Slade Gordon from Washington has suggested that all endangered species should be removed from the wild and bred in zoos so that endangered plants and animals can be protected without blocking economic development. Those who support the Act point out that recovery is a slow process, and 20 years is a very short time in which to expect results. Supporters also note that the total budget for the Endangered Species Program in the U.S. in 1996 was $57 million, about equal to the cost of 1.5 miles of urban interstate highway.
