Endangered species of pakistan

  1. 1. Endangered Species of Pakistan Ehtasham ul Haq
  2. 2. Endangered A species of plant or animal that is in immediate danger of becoming extinct and needs protection to survive.
  3. 3. Endangered Means There Still’s Time Endangered species are like fire alarms. They tell us about problems in our home we call Earth. If we listen to their alarm calls, they could help us improve their lives and the health of our planet.
  4. 4. Why are animals becoming Endangered? Exotic Species Hunting and Fishing PollutionHumans Animals kill each other People hunt for fun Water PollutionCut down trees Animals give each other disease People hunt for meat Oil SpillsBuild Homes People hunt for fur Throwing trash on the ground Build Roads Acid Rain Fill in swamps and marshes to build homes
  5. 5. Fuana of Pakistan MAMMALS Urial Siberian ibex Markhor  Marco polo sheep  Sind wild goat
  6. 6. BIRDS  Houbara Bustard  Red-headed vulture  Migratory birds  Cranes  Marbled Teal
  7. 7. Endangered Species
  8. 8. Indus River Dolphin Indus river Dolphin is endemic to the lower Indus basin river in Pakistan. The construction of dams and barrages has severely limited the dolphin’s movement and habitat, as has increasing withdrawal of water for agricultural and industrial use. Approximately 1,100 of these animals remain in Pakistan. The WWF has devoted some of their resources to help protect this endangered species.
  9. 9. Crane Grus Crane Grus was historically widespread all over south Asia and also in Pakistan. Now declining all over its range. These are primarily threatened by a combination of habitat loss and modification (owing primarily to agricultural expansion), and pollution.
  10. 10. Markhor Markhor is the largest member of the goat family, and is found in northern and western Pakistan. The species is classed by the IUCN as Endangered, as there are less than 2,500 mature individuals.
  11. 11. Flying Squirrel (Biswamoyopterus biswasi) Flying Squirrel is a rodent, nocturnal flying squirrel endemic to Pakistan. And is listed as a critically endangered species due to habitat loss.
  12. 12. Snow leopard (Uncia uncia) Snow Leopard is a moderately large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central Asia. Snow leopards live between 3,000 and 5,500 meters above sea level in the rocky mountain ranges of Central Asia. It has been estimated that between 3,500 and 7,000 snow leopards exist in the wild.
  13. 13. Baluchistan Bear It is also referred to as the "moon bear" due to a crescent-shaped mark on its chest. These solitary bears live in forest habitats and can weigh over 300 pounds. The Baluchistan bear is found only in the province of Baluchistan in southwest Pakistan. These bears now face extinction due to deforestation and loss of habitat And those that survive are threatened by hunting due to demand for the bears' parts by practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine.
  14. 14. Urial (Ovis vignei) Urial is a wild sheep subspecies which is found in Pakistan, widespread in all four provinces and Northern Areas. Threats are Frequently hunted, their number is also decreasing gradually. All three sub- species of Urial in Pakistan are listed as Endangered in by the IUCN's Capirane Specialist Group.
  15. 15. The Green Turtle It can grow up to 3.5 feet in length, and could be as heavy as 180 kilogram. Green Turtles are facing extinction all over the world due to low growth rate and environmental constraints. Main threats are commercial trade in turtle skin, shell, medicines and cosmetics, and destruction of eggs by predators, especially feral domestic dogs. Other dangers to turtles come from poachers, accidental capture in fishing nets, and extensive coastal development, which results in human disturbance at the nesting sites and pollution.
  16. 16. Conversation of Endangered Species  Lal Sohanra National Park (Bahawalpur)  Kirthar National Park (Sindh)  Khunjerab National Park (NothernAreas)  Chiltan Hazargangi National Park (Balochistan)  Margalla Hills National Park (Islamabad)  Chitral Gol National Park (NWFP)
  17. 17. Conclusion  Our national heritage of biological diversity is an invaluable and irreplaceable resource. Our quality of life and that of future generations depends on our preservation of plant and animal species.  More knowledge of complete ecosystems can help us to better understand, and protect, the requirements of all life--including the human species.  Endangered means there’s still time, but extinction is forever.
