Animals that are on the verge of extinction

ANIMALS THAT HUMANS GOING TO BE MISSED ...

Over the years, the planet has witnessed the extinction of several species of animals, ranging from dinosaurs to frogs, and now even many species of bees and bats. Some were mass extinctions, while the others were virtually brought to the brink of extinction by human activities. 
Studies have revealed that approximately a quarter of animal species will be wiped off the planet owing to human induced climate change apart from what we have already lost due to Hunting & Deforestation.
It is painful to note that during our time we are witnessing the largest mass extinction since the end of the dinosaurs. Every animal that disappears from the earth is a tragedy with enormous repercussions.
Let us see some of the most beautiful animals that are on the verge of extinction and are alive now only in few hundreds :
