An endangered species is an organism that is at risk of becoming extinct because it is either few in numbers or threatened by changing environmental or predation parameters. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has calculated the percentage of endangered species as 40 percent of all organisms based on the sample of species that have been evaluated through 2006.
The last century was the witness as to how fast the endangerment of animals has become. What is alarming is that the current extinction rates are 1000 times higher than natural extinction rates. The culprit of the unprecedented rates? No other than human demand. Habitat loss and fragmentation, natural and wildlife trade (e.g. poaching, fur and bush meat trade) and trades for biomedical research have been the direct reasons as to why many of the animal species are in the brink of extinction.
This list enumerates the ten most endangered animal species in the world. They are icons: living animals that compel people to work for their conservation, raise awareness, and motivate individuals to champion the cause of saving their kind.

Social norms and religious teachings have taught us that killing is a sin worthy of condemnation. Taking a life in one’s hand is something unforgivable and something unjustifiable both in the rule of law and in the eyes of God. Deciding on other people’s death and/or life is never on the hands of mere mortals like us. It is decided by fate and by an almighty God who chooses who lives and who perishes.
But for some who are blinded by hate and ego, killing in massive proportions gives them the justice, the joy and the overwhelming recognition and affirmation of their strength and power making them “demons” in the process.
This top 10 biggest massacre in the world list exemplifies how the evils of men create a blot in history. A blot that signifies the lives lost a blemish that will ever be remembered in history as a moment of great terror, an instance to remember.
