All people should try to keep in mind the fact that the animals should be protected, otherwise, they may become extinct. That is why, hunting for any animals should be strictly forbidden. Everybody should try to provide endangered animals security for the beasts not to be extinct.
WWF collaborates with partners from local to global levels in approximately 100 countries to preserve the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife.
On May 20, 2022, Endangered Species Day will be observed. On this day and every day, WWF raises awareness of the numerous species of animals that are endangered or critically endangered and works to create partnerships with local communities, governments, corporations, and the rest of the world to take action to protect them.
In the past, rhinos were common in Asia’s tropical forests and Africa’s savannas. But today, just a very small number of rhinos remain outside of protected areas. Successful conservation initiatives have contributed to the population growth of subspecies like the greater one-horned (or Indian) rhino. Although the total number of black rhinos in Africa has increased over the past 20 years, it is still a small portion of the estimated 100,000 that were present in the early 20th century. Poachers are killing rhinos more frequently for their horns. WWF aims to support law enforcement in their efforts to combat wildlife crime. To assist deter poachers and create a future where rhinos can thrive, we set up hotlines, trained law enforcement, tracked rhino movements with transmitters, and other measures. Tiger populations are increasing after a century-long fall. Although there are still 3,890 tigers in the wild, much more needs to be done to safeguard this species, which is still in danger of going extinct. Although tigers are among the most revered creatures, they are also in danger of going extinct. According to WWF, we can conserve wild tigers. By the time the following Year of the Tiger is observed in 2022, we have set a lofty but doable target of Tx2: doubling the number of tigers in the wild.
The majority of a polar bear’s life is spent on frozen Arctic sea ice. The biggest threat to their survival right now comes from the melting of sea ice habitat brought on by climate change. The high richness of polar bear habitats is one of WWF’s main conservation priorities. We collaborate with local communities and partners to develop a management strategy for the “Last Ice Area” in Canada and Greenland, where experts predict that sea ice will persist longer than anywhere else. The strategy safeguards the local population’s cultural heritage and economic requirements while preserving habitat for all animals that depend on the Arctic ice.
There have been significant population decreases for orangutans. There were probably more than 230,000 orangutans living in the wild a century ago. The population of Bornean orangutans is thought to be around 41,000, and that of Sumatran orangutans is thought to be around 7,500. Their habitats are rapidly decreasing. Since the 1970s, WWF has been involved in orangutan conservation. We work to protect orangutan habitat, deter poaching, advance sustainable forestry and agriculture, and end the trade in orangutans as pets.
The majority of marine turtle species are considered to be endangered too. Hunting, poaching, habitat damage, and unintentional capture in fishing gear are all human actions that have made it more difficult for these ancient sailors to survive. The WWF is dedicated to halting the decrease of marine turtles and promoting the species’ resurgence. Eliminating marine turtle bycatch from fisheries, lowering the unsustainable harvest and illegal trafficking in marine turtles, and halting the destruction of vital marine turtle ecosystems are all part of our efforts to ensure the survival of this species.
Projects Strengthening Wild Cat Landscapes in India with Global Significance for Conservation and Resilience. This initiative, which is a part of the Global Wildlife Program, aims to protect wild cat populations and habitats in key Indian landscapes, with a particular emphasis on small cats and leopards. Ginette Hemley, senior vice president of wildlife conservation, Leigh Henry, director of wildlife policy, and Allard Blom, managing director of the Congo Basin, Arnaud Lyet, Lead Specialist, Wildlife Conservation, Jan Vertefeuille, Senior Advisor, Advocacy, Colby Loucks, Vice President, Wildlife Conservation Program Director of Wildlife Policy and Conservation.
Join us as we effect change, to advocate for species and locations.

Entering the United States with Pets and Wildlife | U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Websites for pets and wildlife resources from partner government agencies. When your pet enters the US, several authorities may have regulatory control over it. It is crucial to inform and work with the relevant governmental organizations. Each individual pet page contains a contact form and more information. Travel with pets and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Visitors commonly ask about bringing their pets on vacation to the United States. All such imports may be subject to federal quarantine, agricultural, wildlife, and customs restrictions and/or prohibitions, as well as state and local veterinary health rules. Pets that have left the United States and returned there can be subject to the same rules as animals coming in for the first time. Reentry may be forbidden for some species that are occasionally thought of as “pets.” U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) advances a comprehensive approach to border security and management, working in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state, local, tribal, territorial, and international law enforcement agencies to strengthen its capacity to safeguard and deter the introduction of foreign animal disease, protect an endangered species, and prevent the transnational spread of illegal drugs.
Controlling the introduction and spread of infectious diseases (including those that can be transmitted from animals to humans) into the United States is the responsibility of the CDC, which serves as the country’s focal point for developing and implementing human disease prevention and control strategies. The U.S. requires that all imported dogs and cats be in good health when they arrive. An additional examination by a qualified veterinarian at the owner’s expense may be necessary if a dog or cat at the port of entry appears to be ill. For dogs coming from nations where there is a significant risk of dog rabies, the CDC also demands acceptable confirmation of rabies vaccination.
There is a temporary ban on importing dogs from nations where there is a significant danger of dog rabies starting on July 14, 2021. The prevention of the introduction and spread of infectious diseases in regulated live animals and animal products is under the purview of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA APHIS). Additionally, the USDA APHIS program known as Animal Care (AC) ensures the humane treatment of animals protected by the Animal Welfare Act. If you are importing canines with the intent to resell them, such as through retail or wholesale networks, adoption for a fee or gift, or sales through these channels, AC has extra restrictions. Additional standards are set forth by USDA APHIS Veterinary Services (VS) for canines arriving in the United States from nations where certain diseases are prevalent.
Pets. Endangered animals security
Not all animals can be considered pets. Only the following animal groups are included in the USDA APHIS definition of a pet, which is an individually owned companion animal not intended for study or resale: dogs; rats; ferrets; birds; rabbits; cats; hedgehogs; tenrecs; and reptiles. APHIS’ rules could change based on the types of birds you own. Some pet birds are regulated as poultry and are subject to different rules because they may harbor or transmit specific diseases to the U.S. poultry industry.
Endangered and threatened species deserve special attention as critical habitat destruction may influence them greatly. Wildlife habitat is sometimes not safe for some animals. Some bigger animals may be especially dangerous for them, which is why protecting endangered species is one of the most important tasks of ours. Conserving endangered species will prevent them from going extinct. The federal government should take it under its care. Protecting listed species should be a must for everybody. Species recovery is possible if threatened and endangered species are taken care of. Continued existence is not the whim, it is the right and safety for those who need our help.
