2016 has come to a close and it has been successful year for endangered animals. During this time of the year almost every publication, from tv gossip shows to serious news programs, do a recap of all of the important events that unfolded over the last 12 months. We, at Endangered Apparel, decided that we should highlight a few of the important events that took place around endangered animals in the past year and how we are helping endangered animals.
2. Giraffes have been placed on the endangered list, which came as quite a shock to the world. The iconic animal, which is one of Africa's most unique megafauna, is undergoing an almost silent descent extension. They have lost over 40% of their numbers over the last 30 years. Which is a very alarming rate that is also seen in Lion, and rhinos total population numbers. These two later groups receive lots of attention. So hopefully the sad move of giraffes to the endangered list will raise awareness and action. The guardian has a great article on the stories development.
These are only a few of the events that were seen in the animal world in 2016. Some were positive, some not so much. The yin and yang relationship that humankind has with our natural world will continue to play itself out in the future. One thing is very true, we strive to help those who are voiceless, because they cannot help themselves. We spread the awareness and inspire change, and keep the hopeful in 2017. We are looking forward to helping endangered animals with our apparel!
