  • Hunters are actually strong conservationist (the first ones) and put forth lots of money and time towards the conservation of habitat and adhere to all rules to manage species numbers. Poachers destroy species numbers and they are not hunters. This slide show is spreading bias information about hunting.

  • 2. Facts on Endangered Species
    • An endangered species is a specie, plant or animal, that is in immediate danger of becoming extinct. Its numbers are usually low and it needs protection in order to survive. The Siberian tiger, the southern sea otter, the snow leopard, the green pitcher plant, and thousands of other plants and animals are endangered worldwide.
    • There are 38 million acres lost per year in tropical rainforests. Up to one half of the world’s species live in these areas.
    • The rate of extinction is 1 species every 100 years
