WATERCOLOR PAINTING FOR YOUTH: ENDANGERED SPECIES

Monday, September 19, 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.


Panda

Panda's area adorable. This class will include adding color to their black and white fur and including bamboo, their food choice.
Pandas are endangered mainly due to habitat loss. Humans have cleared much of the bamboo forests that pandas need to
survive, 
which is why including bamboo is so important. Because pandas eat only bamboo, they cannot adapt to live outside of
those forests the way other animals do. Pandas also have difficulty reproducing, even in captivity, due to their extreme choosiness
about their mates, their low-nutrient milk and the fact that they usually only have one viable cub at a time.
