It is not a secret that human intervention into the world of nature makes many mammals and other animals disappear from the earth.

But this article is not about ruinous activity of humans; it is about the most endangered animals that can be found today. Yet.
The complete list of endangered species is very long (over 10 000 species), so we will not list them all. However, here are some of the most vulnerable ones.
