Many, many exotic, one-of-a-kind species of animals roam the corners of our planet. If you have seen Netflix's latest documentary Our Planet*, narrated by David Attenborough, then you must be aware of how blessed our planet is with the wide range of life that inhabits it. (*If you haven't seen it, then you really are missing out). These charismatic wildlife species are dispersed across a wide of natural habitats.
Whether it be the snow-capped Himalayan Mountain range, the sultry Sahara Desert, or even the lush green labyrinth that is the Amazon Rainforest, each area houses an uncompromising and unique range of wildlife. Sadly, though, many of these eye-catching species are endangered, many on the verge of extinction.
India, for one, is an unparalleled abode for animals. Nearly 500 wildlife sanctuaries and national parks across its wide geography provide shelter to many such magnificent creatures. The Indian Cheetah, Aurochs, and Pink Headed-Ducks are some species that have become extinct in our country. Excessive hunting, poaching, deforestation and climate change over the years have disrupted the balance shared by nature and animals, leading to the current state of the situation.
Following is a list of the most endangered species found in India. We need to take care of them.
