How does an animal become endangered?

Animals and plants that are at risk of becoming extinct because of threats from changing environments or predators are considered threatened or endangered. An "endangered" species is any species in danger of extinction through all or a significant portion of its range.

What is the most common cause of extinction?

Since the dawn of human industry, the leading cause of extinctions has been loss of habitat — animals finding their homes destroyed to the point at which their survival is no longer possible. Habitat fragmentation will remain the sole cause of species extinction and sadly its increasing at a staggering rate.
