Humans are not the only habitants of this earth so are the wildlife that surrounds us. We are in symbiosis relationship with the animals that are around us. Due to the population boom of humans, we are at a constant clash between the natural world and the human world. When the habitats of these animals are under severe pressure and a large number of species of wild fauna have become endangered, the significance of wildlife conservation becomes urgent. The increase in human populations has had a negative effect on the wildlife population. Studies have shown that with an increase of human population, there has been a steady decrease in wildlife population. This is due to more land being used by humans which in turn decreases or damages…show more content…
The categories according to the IUCN are “Extinct (EX) when there is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died. A taxon is presumed extinct when exhaustive surveys in known and/or expected habitat. Extinct in the wild (EW) is when it is known only to survive in cultivation, in captivity or as a naturalized population. Critically endangered (CE) considered to be facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild. Vulnerable (VU) is when an observed, estimated, inferred or suspected population size reduction of ≥ 50% over the last 10 years or three generations, whichever is the longer. Near threatened (NT) when it has been evaluated against the criteria but does not qualify for Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable now, but is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future. Least concern (LC) is when it has been evaluated against the criteria and does not qualify for Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable or Near Threatened. Widespread and abundant species are included in this category.” The last two categories are data deficient and not evaluated and both categories are of least concern due to thriving populations or populations that have not been studied.
