Read the following text and answer the questions!
Hello to you all! My name is Debbie Morgan. I am a zoologist and I work to preserve and save endangered species, that is animals which are disappearing from our planet, because of the changes in climate, hunting, or poaching, and the destruction of their habitat. I have just come back from the World Conservation Congress in Hawaii .Do you know that one of the last male white rhino has just died and here are some estimates for some very emblematic animals .There are only about 700 mountain gorillas left, 2,000 giant pandas, between 2,000 and 3,000 Bengal tigers, between 7,000 and 10,000 cheetahs , about 130 condors, less than 50 Amur leopards, between 4,000 and 6,600 snow leopards ,about 7,000 orang-utans, 80% of the population of the white shark has disappeared in less than 15 years, 80% of the population of the Irrawaddy dolphin has disappeared in the last 50 years. The Chinese dolphin disappeared in 2006, the giant Pinta tortoise in 2012, 50% of the Asian elephants were exterminated in one century. Many species are nearly extinct in the wild and can only be seen in zoos!!With the ice disappearing at the poles, polar bears are threatened (there are only between 20,000 and 25,000 left). Elephants are killed for the ivory of their tusks, their meat or body parts ( only 350,000 are still alive in Africa), rhinos are killed just for their horns as well , which are reduced to powder and supposed to have medical power. Big cats are killed for their fur, or hunted in safaris for fun! Cecil the most famous lion in Zimbabwe was killed by a Minnesota dentist during a safari!!!! The destruction of big forests leads to the death of many species of animals and plants. And what about whales ??Even the bees are dying massively because of too many pesticides and don’t forget that if they do disappear, men will follow soon after. So it is our responsibility and yours as well, you young generations to do our best to preserve the biodiversity of our planet!!
