Endangered Animals

Many endangered species of animals, endangered, almost extinct, are under constant attack by poachers who hunt them for the purpose of obtaining internal organs, skins and other body parts in alternative medicine.

Today, these species living on our planet are on a very dangerous extinction side, this issue is particularly acute if we take into account the information that at the moment they are going through the next phase of their extinction, a combination of factors, such as the destruction of their natural habitat. , hunting, poaching, climate change and the introduction of alien species leads to the extinction of some animals.
Poaching - for obtaining resources, followed by their use in traditional medicine - is the main reason for the extermination of entire populations, a huge number of various endangered species of animals.

WILD WATER BUYVOLS (ASIAN BOILER)
Endangered Animals
Despite the fact that buffaloes (Bubalus bublis) are widespread in the world today, wild water buffaloes (Bubalus arnee), which are their ancestors, fall under the protection of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, as an endangered species. Domestic water buffalos are grown for meat, hides, horns, milk, and physical strength (in order to be used for plowing fields). Although wild water buffalo are protected by law, poachers continue to exterminate them because of the value of body parts.
In Southeast Asia, especially in China, the horns of these animals are used to prepare traditional Chinese medicines and are considered, in certain circles, an alternative to the rhino horns. This threatens to exterminate a large number of wild buffaloes in southern and southeast Asia and to complete extinction in countries such as Bangladesh, Laos and Vietnam.

RHINES
Endangered Animals
Today, virtually every one of the five existing rhino species, including the Indian and White rhinos, is threatened with extinction. One of the most important causes of this kind of catastrophe was the demand for the parts of the body of these animals, which are obtained by poaching.The fact is that these “products are used in non-traditional medical practices. Despite the fact that there are studies proving that rhino horn contains only keratin (a substance that is included in human hair and nails) - the use of rhino horn in traditional practices is the place to be. In the nineties, the Chinese authorities issued a decree that prescribed the removal of a product such as rhino horns from pharmacology and banned their use for medical purposes.
This bore fruit, and in several years the recovery of the rhinoceros began. Unfortunately, this encouraging situation did not take long to establish. Soon in Vietnamese society, interest in the rhinoceros horns flared up. Against the background of the rumor that it was possible to cure liver cancer with the help of rhino horn, when this information became widespread - and official confirmation, the rhino poaching was resumed with a new force, and now this process has reached its peak.

MALAI BEAR
Endangered Animals
Malay bear (Helarctors malayanus) - the victim of human thirst for profit and greed.These bears are grown in large quantities in China, Vietnam, South Korea, Myanmar and Laos, because of the bile, which is extracted from the gallbladders of these animals. It is believed that it can cure sore throat, gallstones or hemorrhoids. Animal welfare organizations and wildlife lovers are alarmed by the fact that no one is responsible for the cruel treatment of these representatives of the fauna.
Throughout their lives, they are kept in very cramped cells, in which they often cannot straighten their backs. And the procedure for extracting the gallbladder is carried out with a risk to the life of the animal, often in conditions of unsanitary conditions, and very often carry it to the konovalov. Also, wild bears are constantly caught and killed due to the gallbladder.

KABARGA
Endangered Animals
Musk deer (musk deer) refers to those 7 species of deer that belong to the genus Musk. These deer are well known, thanks to the glands that produce a special sweet aroma - musk. For years, they were attacked by poachers because of him. Musk is used in perfumery and traditional Chinese medicine.A large population of musk deer is actually exterminated in Russia and Mongolia, the reason for this was the use of these animals for commercial purposes.
For more than 5,000 years, musk has been treating diseases of the nervous and circulatory systems, and it also finds application in perfumery and as a strong sedative. The great demand for it leads to the fact that annually in Russia from 17,000 to 20,000 musk deer are killed. All species of musk deer are currently under threat.

Bissy
Endangered Animals
Despite the fact that such a species of sea turtles as the bissies (Eretmochelys imbricata) are widely distributed in different parts of the world, today they are protected by an organization that fights for animal rights (IUCN), there is a sharp decline in the population of this species due to the extermination poachers - this is due to parts of their body.
The shell of these turtles is used to create souvenirs, which are usually brought from travels, and for other decorative trinkets. They also emit a special oil that is traditionally used in some areas of Southeast Asia. Also, many of these turtles lose their lives, as they fall into the net, like bycatch.Although the trade in turtles is prohibited in most civilized countries, they still remain on the edge between life and death, and the reason for this is human greed.

ZEBRA GREVI
Endangered Animals
This is an endangered species of zebras, Grevy's zebras (Equus grevyi) - the only one of the currently existing artiodactylians living in the forests of Kenya and Ethiopia in Africa. From the end of the 90s to the beginning of the 21st century, their population declined critically from 15,000 to 3,500, the main reason for such a sharp decline in the number of these animals is poaching. Locals hunt zebras, making it harder to find food, they use pastures to walk their own livestock, thus bringing their extinction closer.
Some ethnic populations of zebras are being attacked by poachers because of valuable meat, skins and fat. The meat and fat of these zebras are often used by African healers for the preparation of medicines for tuberculosis. The dialogue, initiated in Kenya and Ethiopia, about the need to preserve these animals, gave certain results, and this to some extent, helped stabilize the decline in the population of zebras.

CHINESE ALLIGATORS
Endangered Animals
Chinese alligators, on the verge of extinction, because of the constant hunting for them, because of the meat and organs, which, as is commonly believed, are able to beat a cold or even cancer, these products are used in traditional Chinese medicine. These alligators are endemic to eastern China and today their small population in the wild is concentrated in this area.
However, a large number of alligators are kept in captivity, in nurseries, where they are also bred for commercial purposes. Nurseries sell alligator meat, use them as entertainment for tourists and sell them on European markets.

WILD BULLS
Endangered Animals
The wild bull is an endangered species of animals, whose traditional habitat is Southeast Asia. Although the population of domestic bulls is quite large, the population of their wild counterparts is 2000-5000. For many years, they have been subjected to various kinds of attacks due to meat and other parts of the body, like other types of wild animals in Southeast Asia, parts of their bodies are very often used for the manufacture of medicines.

CHINESE TIGERS
Endangered Animals
Asian tigers are suffering a massive loss of numbers.Each of the 8 species of tigers is located at a critical feature of extinction, and in each of these species there are only a few thousand individuals living in the wild. Despite the fact that the main reason for their extinction is the loss of natural habitat, poaching is another important factor causing concern in order to get tiger's body parts. Each of these parts, whether bones, claws, skin or teeth, are used in the manufacture of alternative medicine, they also play a special role in traditional Chinese medicine.
Local healers believe that medicines made from parts of the tiger's body can relieve a number of diseases, including severe toothache. Although modern research refutes this claim. In whatever environment these animals live, they are protected by law, but despite this, they become victims of poachers. The thirst for profit and the usual human greed, still put the tigers at risk of extinction.

ASIAN ELEPHANTS
Endangered Animals
Unlike African elephants, only some male Asian elephants have tusks.Theoretically, this could protect their population from poachers. But, unfortunately, in reality, the situation is diametrically opposite. Humanity continues to exterminate Asian elephants, poaching, hunting these animals for meat, hides and other parts of the body.
In Myanmar, a paste made from parts of the legs of these elephants is used in alternative medicine to eliminate hernia. Illegal hunting (poaching) of these animals, deterioration of living conditions in their natural habitat, degeneration of individuals, all this leads to the extermination of the elephant population, according to the Organization for the Protection of Animal Rights (IUCN), these elephants are recognized as endangered species.
