    Many mammals are in danger of extinction and its making conservationists are worried. Half of the world’s 5,487 mammal species are in decline and a quarter could decline altogether according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

    They say, hunting and habitat destruction are to blame.  So what do we do?  Each year more and more species are declining.  They have listed almost 200 species as critical.  Zoos are trying to help the campaign but is it only a last stand? 

    The key seems to be education in local areas.  Do you have any ideas on how we can help?  If so, leave your comments below!
