What are Endangered Species?

Endangered species refer to all species whose wild population has a great possibility of extinction in the near future resulting from their own reasons or the impact of human activities, natural disaster. The extinction of a key species may destroy the local food chain, cause instability to the ecosystem and eventually lead to the breakdown of the entire ecosystem.
