While the Stellar Sea Lion population in the East has grown, the West has declined. Due to boat collisions and pollution, crucial habitat and protected zones have been put up for sea lions.

Despite the ongoing threat of habitat destruction, the population of these cherished gentle giants has increased thanks to stricter hunting restrictions and conservation measures.

Scientists believe that the number of lowland gorillas has dropped by half during the 1990s due to poachers taking advantage of the unstable political climate in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Green Turtle is the real-life analogue of Crush from Finding Nemo. Overharvesting of eggs, hunting of adults, entanglement in fishing gear, and loss of breeding beaches threaten green turtles, according to the WWF.

This species of ape, which may be found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, actually shares 98.7% of its DNA with humans (DRC). Similar to the Eastern Lowland Gorilla, this species has been subject to poaching and threats of civil strife in recent years.


Native to Africa's woods and savannahs, these resourceful apes have extensive social rituals and use tools to eat. Unfortunately, endangered chimpanzees are illegally hunted for their meat, which is considered a delicacy in parts of Central Africa.


Two giraffe subspecies are now listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Both habitat degradation and poaching contributed to the extinction of the native African Kordofan and Nubian giraffes.

Due to poaching and habitat destruction, there are only about 10,000 adult red pandas left in the wild. As part of conservation efforts, the killing of red pandas has been made illegal in some regions, but the species' low birthrate means that progress is slow.

Poaching and damage to habitats have put four of the five species of tapir in South America, Central America, and Southeastern Asia at risk or in danger. The slow rate at which tapirs have babies makes it hard to protect them. 13 or 14 months pass during a pregnancy.


Because of uncontrolled hunting in their natural environment in the Sahara, addax in the wild are considered to be in a state of critical endangerment.
