Cause 1: Habitat Loss and Conflict with Humans
· Logging – legal and illegal for overseas markets and for agriculture including rubber, oil , palm and pulp plantations
· Development: A proposed road through the Gunung Leuser National Park which threatens the last stronghold
· Permits: Forests are continued to be logged but plantations are not being planted. Permits are still being given to clearing virgin forest despite cleared land being available

Cause 2: Natural Disasters following tampering with habitat
· The government cleared wetlands for rice production and dug canals to drain soil – but peat soil was not fit to grow rice
· The wetlands drained to the extent that tree roots could not support them and all the trees died
· In 1997 massive fires swept through Borneo releasing 30% of the world’s carbon emissions for the year
· Approximately 10,000 orang-utans were lost.

In the early 1990s, an outbreak of haemorrhagic septicaemia, a cattle disease rare among elephants, was responsible for the deaths of several animals in Sri Lanka's Uda Walawe National Park in May 1994. This diesease is very dangerous between large heards as it spreads at a fast speed.
WWF-Asian Elephant

Cause 2: Lost of Land(Habitat)
Large development projects (such as dams, roads, mines and industrial complexes), plantations and spreading human settlements have fragmented what was once contiguous elephant habitat into small fragments.
As the population of humans increases the population of the Asian Elephants decreases.
WWF-Asian Elephant

Cause 3:Hunting(Poaching)
In Asian elephants, only males carry tusks and therefore poaching is aimed exclusively at males. Poaching of Asian elephants for ivory and meat remains a serious problem in many countries, especially in southern India (where 90% of the bulls are tuskers) and in north-east India where some people eat elephant meat.

Cause 1
Loss of Habitat
In order to survive, the SiberianTiger needs a large amount of forest space. Unfortunatly illegal and legal loggers have been cuting down the Siberian Tigers natural habbitat making it fragmented. Meaning that thy cannot travel to other areas to hunt for food or to reproduce.

Hunting (Poaching)
Siberian Tigers are one of the largest animals around, and they are often hunted for their fur. The Siberian Tigers body parts are sold for great amounts of money to Chinese chemists, that use the limbs from the tiger to create traditional chinese medicines. They also beleive that hanging a tigers head above their front door will scare off bad spirits and welcome good ones.

APA Reference
Cause 1: Poaching
The trade in rhino horn has been banned by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species since 1980, but poaching still poses the greatest threat to the species. Rhino horn is high in price in parts of Asia, especially China, where it is used as a medicine for rheumatism, arthritis and fever, although there is no evidence that the horn really works. This is not the only reason poachers poach this animal. The horn can also be carved into statues and even the Rhino meat can be sold for quite a lucrative price.
BBC Site
(BBC, April 2009)
Cause 2: Civil Unrest
The local wars have left governments short of money to help save the Rhinos. Not only this but the amount of poverty in their native African countries has lead to families poaching just for food. Civil unrest in countries such as Angola and Uganda has taken an heavy toll on the population since the 1960's.
BBC Site
(BBC, April 2009)
Cause 3: Habitat Loss
Rhinos need an sizable area to support themselves from. The Rhinos have been driven into more and more smaller pockets of land much like the orangutans. However unlike the orangutans 1 km of land may be able to hold up to orangutans(estimation), but if more than a single Rhino was put into this space they would fight and 1 would die. Then unlike the orangutan the Rhino would be extinct in that part of the wild. Even elephants, which suffer the same problems as Rhinos, sometimes clash with the Rhinos over space. Efforts to create corridors, so the Rhinos can move, have been severely delayed due to problems noted above and the fact that a corridor of habitat would have to be large, otherwise the Rhino would not feel comfortable entering an sparse expanse of vegetation.

Cause 1: Habitat Loss and Clan Isolation
  • Development:People cut forests where tigers live, to do farming, build houses & buildings. This leads to tiger becoming homeless and foodless. Animals which the tiger eats also die when forests are cut. This leads to tigers becoming weak and ultimately they die.
  • Logging: Many untouched Indian forests even like National Parks, are being cut down for their extensive amount of wood and other agricultural uses.
  • Clan Isolation: Due to the destruction of the Bengal Tiger's habitat, these predators have nowhere to go; separate populations are isolated and it is difficult for them to find mates. Therefore, they have no alternative but to inbreed, which in turn results in serious genetic disorders.

Cause 2: Poaching
  • They are hunted for their teeth, nails and skin.
  • Tigers are killed to make rugs and coats out of their skins, and also because in many Asian cultures medicines made from tiger parts are believed to cure diseases.
  • Some are kept by households as status symbols
  • Captured for the entertainment industry

Cause 1: Habitat Loss
· Human Competitors : African Elephants need a large amount of space to live in as they eat a lot.
· The human population has quadrupled in Africa and Asia over the last century.
· This means the habitat of the elephants are being converted into agricultural land and timber the trees are logged due to the timber needed for the housing.
· Local people from nearby villages are shooting these animals as they are rampaging into their villages during breeding season. This is regarded as an intimidation technique to keep the humans away.
Bagherra - African Elephants
(Bagherra, 2007)
Cause 2: Overexploitation
· Hunting elephants for their ivory tusk which can be sold for a high price
· Hunting elephants was illegal, however, poaching elephants was legal until only recently.
· Motorised vehicles and sometimes airplanes are used to catch elephants by the hundreds.
· Poachers normally aim for the bigger elephants as they have larger ivory tusks. This leaves the young with no protection which also destroys their social structure.
· Sudden oil shortage caused economy to collapse which made ivory even more valuable than gold. It is also reffered to as 'white gold' because of its beautiful exterior, easiness to carve and high durability.
Bagherra - African Elephants
(Bagherra, 2007)
Cause 3: Reproductive Flexibility and Migration
· Amount of habitat has decreased and food supply has decreased. This affects the reproduction rate as females rely on food in order to stay healthy enough for another calf.
· Reproductive rate of certain African elephants vary.
· African Elephants will not travel far if food is plentiful. If there is a shortage of supplies then the elephants will travel long distances in order to find resources. However, the speed that elephants travel, around 2km's per hour at long distances, does not help.

Cause 1: Habitat Loss and Conflict with Humans
The Leopards habitat will be destroyed when the Siberia- Pacific oil pipeline will be constructed because it passes right through the breeding ground of the Amur Leopard. The clearing of forest habitats to build homes is also the main reason why their habitat is disappearing so quickly.

Pacific Environment 2005
Cause 2: Natural Causes- including declining numbers of prey and forest fires.
The leopard feeds on deer, wild boars and hares. Recently the number of those species have dropped, reducing the available food supply of the leopard. Forest fires have also been responsible for the deaths of many tigers.

Cause 2: Construction of Roads
Tigers have lost 93% of their historic range. Tigers have lost their habitat due to road construction, road networks, agriculture and timber trade. In the last 10 years, tiger habitat decreased by an alarming 45%. Today, tigers occupy just 7% of their historic range.
Quick Tiger Facts
(WWF, 2010)
Cause 3: Conflict with people
Tiger prey species are also killed by villagers in retaliation for destroying essential crops. This further exacerbates the problem by reducing the availability of the tiger’s natural source of food.In addition, many local communities living around tiger habitats depend on forests for fuelwood, fodder and timber.

(NSW government, 2008)
Cause 2: Wild Animals
- As the wombats are forced to seek new habitat due to habitat destruction
they encounter many wild predators such as wild dogs
-These animals are extremely aggressive and are far to quick for the wombats
-This wild animal problem is mainly due to the habitat destruction if they
did not have to move habitatsn they would be safe in their burrows
NSW goverment conservation
(NSW government, 2008)
Cause 3: Human Intervention
-The Australian goverment has built many main roads very close to the
habitats of these wombats
-This means when the wombats are in search of food and they attempt to
cross the road there is the potential danger of the animals being hit and
intern being killed
-Another example of human intervention and another key reason to why the
Southern Hairy-nosed wombat is critically endangered is because of farmers
they are known to shoot them because their burrows make the ground unsteady and creates
caos aswell as the wombat tearing down farm fences

IUCN
(IUCN, 2009)
Cause 2:
Lack of natural habitat, food.
Animal Info
(Animal Info, 2010)
Cause 3
Illegal poaching and killing for food or for fur, or capture for sale as pets.


Cause 4:
Largest reason for decline is land development, which is continuing to take away natural habitat from it.

Cause 1
Devil Facial Tumour Disease, (DFTD), is an infectious, spreading cancer. Population declines of up to 80% from the disease started. These declines have mostly happened in North-Eastern and Central Eastern parts of Tasmania
Decline in Tasmanian Devils
(Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts, 2010)
Cause 2
Introduced species, foxes. Foxes and Tassie Devils share the same preferences for den sites and habitat.

Cause 3
Persercution. This is by in the 1990's farmers were given permits to kill Tassie Devils as it is assumed that they ate animals. There are still being some permits given out.

Cause 1
the main cause for this animals decrease is the dissapearence
of its main habitat(forests througout the country of India) and some other
parts of eastern Asia.

Cause 2
residents of the jungle are stealing the Dholes kills and using them for food for there
own personal gain, the way they do this is they follow it till it makes its kill and once
it has done so they scare it away and steal it food source.

Cause 3
A nasty disease is sweaping through the Dhole population decreasing the
amount of Dholes left in the wild
