The main cause of species endangerment is humanity’s destruction of both water and land habitats. Deforestation and soil, air, and water pollution can all destroy habitat. This can then cause a large number of animals or plants to die. The critically endangered Sumatran orangutan has seen a 50% decline in its population over the last eight years as farmers clear more and more forests for agriculture.
Another cause of endangerment is the unreasonable exploitation of animal. Uncontrolled hunting of whales in the last century, for example, resulted in many whale species becoming critically endangered.
The very high demand for animal parts for use in certain foods or medicines is another example. The horn of the rhinoceros can be sold at a high price in some places where it is thought to be medicinal: a price so high that people will kill the animals even though it is against the law.
