There are a number of animals that are currently classified as critically endangered, which means that they are at high risk of becoming extinct in the near future. Some of the most well-known of these animals include, the black rhinoceros, the eastern gorilla, and the Bornean orangutan. These animals have all experienced significant declines in their populations due to a variety of factors, including habitat loss, hunting, and poaching.

Efforts to conserve these animals have been ongoing for many years now and involve a range of different strategies. Some conservation efforts focus on protecting the animals’ natural habitats, while others aim to reduce hunting and poaching. In some cases, captive breeding programs are also used to try and boost the populations of these animals. Despite these efforts, however, many of these animals remain in danger of extinction, and much more work needs to be done to ensure that they continue to thrive in the future.
