5 of the Most Endangered Species on the Planet

This year experts at the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) have put together a list of the world's 100 most endangered animals and plants. These species are near the brink of extinction—each with a population that is dwindling fast—but also species that human beings have little use for. That's a problem because the calculus of conservation is increasingly being driven by economics. So IUCN's new list is dedicated to the highly endangered species that may be allowed to die out because they don't provide humans with clear benefits. But that doesn't mean they don't deserve to live.

While I think you have done a good job on reporting about the species falling off the planet, I was expecting that you might report on White Bellied-Heron. It's a big bird, but it is at the edge of falling off the planet as well. They number between 150-200 in the world. About 4-7 couples of the birds are found in Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park in central Bhutan. IUCN should be aware of the grave threat this bird is facing. WWF is doing a lot to save this bird!!

Are you crazy? Top ten? How about 1 billionth in line on the list from problems caused world wide by racists. White supremacists are on their crippled last breath. Their continual obsession with violence amp; social pathology is the reason for their imminent coming extinction amp; not just in South Africa. You are one of the handful of racist crackpots on this planet still trying to exact their insane fantasies of violence. Too bad for you that you are on the losing side of history.
