Endangered species are the animals or plants that are facing the danger of extinction from Earth. According to scientists, there are almost more than 30 million animal species on Earth, but a large number of these species become extinct every year. According to researchers, about 27,000 species are becoming extinct every year. The main reason behind their rapid extinction is mostly illegal hunting for meat, fur or entertainment. Here are 25 of the most endangered animals on the endangered species list.
