The article provides information on some of the world's most endangered species. There are now only about 1000 giant pandas left in the wild as of 2006. Giant pandas are usually victims of shrinking habitat and poaching. The only habitat left for giant pandas are in China's Qinling Mountains. Once widespread right across Asia, from Bali to the Caspian Sea, tiger populations shrank drastically over the 20th century. Shrinking habitat and hunting are the culprits.
