Today, scientists say the universe is about 13.7 billion years old. Our world is about 4.5 Billion years old. Our world had to go through certain stages in order to provide today’s living conditions. It took billions of years for our world, which does not exist in its current position in terms of both atmospheric and climatic conditions and which is in a very chaotic order, to attain the potential of living space.
The evolutionary process, which started with the transition to single-celled and then multi-celled, has continued with the evolution of man today, during this process, the derivation of many plant and animal species, the change and development of some, and some of them are the result of natural selection, natural phenomena, and the human factor. It continued in the form of exhaustion. In this article, we take a look at what are the endangered animals in the world.
Endangered Animals: Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs, whose scientific name is “Dinosauria”, will be the first creatures that come to everyone’s mind if the subject is the extinct animals in the world. At a time when man was not yet on earth, almost all of the terrestrial regions of the world were dominated by dinosaurs. Various theories have been produced about the extinction.
The most generally accepted theory is the negative destruction caused by a large meteor falling from space around Mexico and the dense dust and gas particles created in the atmosphere, and the extinction of all living things over 25 kg, as our world enters the ice age, which cannot benefit from sunlight. However, today it is a complete mystery why dinosaurs with species under 25 kg could not continue their lineage and adapt to new conditions.
The Endangered Animals: The Persian Tiger
The scientific name “Panthera Tigris virgata” the Caspian tiger or Persian tiger, also known as Turan tigers, including in Afghanistan, Turkey, Iran, is a species were observed in the Caspian Sea region. Although it looks like a Bengal tiger, their body is smaller than them. It is known that the last Persian tigers died in 1970 in Russia.
It is known that in our country again in Sirnak the last Caspian tiger was shot dead in Turkey in 1970. In other words, the reason for the extinction of these tigers, which are on the list of endangered animals, is, as expected, people living in their regions.
Endangered Animals: Hubara Bird
Its scientific name is “MacQueen Undulata” the Houbara Bustard birds, completely exhausted generation in Turkey, the homeland of Afghanistan, Pakistan, is an endangered species extinction in North Africa and the Canary Islands. It is among the endangered animals in the world due to the wrong hunting and the belief that its meat has an aphrodisiac effect.
The famous Arabian Prince Fahd Bin Abdullah carried out the biggest massacre of the hubara birds, whose lineage was taken under protection within the scope of the international CITES contract, which was reflected in the press, by hunting about 2000 hoard birds.
Endangered Animals: Pandas
Pandas, whose scientific name is “Auliropoda Melonolouca”, are our most important natural friends that come to mind when it comes to endangered animals. There are both carnivorous and herbivorous species. It is known that the herbivorous ones generally feed on bamboo, while the carnivorous ones do not have more than 2000 in Asia, especially in the Himalayas. The People’s Republic of China is regarded as the spiritual homeland of pandas today.
It is among the information that those interested in pandas do not know much about being born blind when they are born, feeding on their mother’s excrement. Pandas, which were included in the list of rapidly endangered animals, especially as a result of the destruction of the natural environment and wrong hunting, have established a throne in the hearts of many animal lovers with their cuteness.
Endangered Animals: The Bald Ibis
These birds, whose scientific name is “Geronticus Eremita”, like hot and arid climates. North Africa, the Middle East and Mesopotamia region are generally accepted as their true homeland. When they are first born, the hairs on their head begin to fall over time, and they take their common name from their feathers, which are not these. In the early 1960s, the intensive use of DDT in agricultural activities among the notables of Birecik put their lineage in serious danger. Today, with sensitive animal lovers, especially as a result of the unique efforts of the Nature Association, contributions to the struggle of bald ibises have been continued, they have been ensured to continue their lineage with artificial cages, and pedigree protection is tried to be provided with the support given to their feeding.
