Indian subcontinent has already scene complete extinction of animals like Indian Cheetah and Sumatran Rhinoceros in recent times and unfortunately many more species are on the verge of complete extinction. It would be shocking to know rate at which some of these animal’s population is going down.
A century ago, we had an estimated 100,000 tigers in the wild, and today we as few as 3000 live in the wild today. Unfortunately current rate tigers may disappear from earth by 2022. Animals such as Gharial, Nilgiri Thar and many others are declining in population at almost same rate or faster.
