TuskPhoto looks ahead at what’s in store for Africa’s most endangered species and their findings have few surprises.
There are worries that more wildlife species might be extinct in regions of Africa in the next 5 to 10 years. Some rare species, like the Bubal Hartebeest, Dodo bird and the Western Black Rhino, have already been lost. Sadly the day may not be far hence when Africa’s most endangered species will only be seen in textbooks or as fossils in museums. The reasons for this slide towards extinction range from habitat loss and poaching for body parts to human-wildlife conflict and road kills.
Has the time have arrived? Should we seriously consider this our final warning for preserving Africa’s wildlife and their habitat?
