Monday, September 12, 2022
QUESTION: What is an "Endangered Species"?
ANSWER: An endangered species is an animal or plant that's considered at risk of extinction. Extinction is the state
or fact of being rendered nonexistent, physically unsound, or useless. In the U.S. alone, there are 1675
endangered species. Species become endangered for two main reasons: loss of habitat and loss of genetic
variation. We will also discuss extinction.
We will talk about grizzly bears, their habitats, and paint them in them in their “once comfortable habitats. One of the
reasons for the endangerment of grizzlies is human hunting. These bears are hunted for their meat and fur. This excessive
hunting is causing the bears to be at risk of extinction. The grizzly bear is also endangered due to deforestation, therefore,
painting them in their habitat is so important to our education about them.
