    People organise Breeding in Captivity in zoos, then release them into the wild to keep the species going.

    There are big charity organizations like World Wildlife Fund, that raise money to help educate the public, stop illegal poaching of endangered species, and prevent habitat loss, but it's an uphill battle, and we most certainly will lose many species in the coming years. There are only 85 Irrawaddy Dolphins left in the Mekong River. They will very likely go extinct. In the early 1900's there were around 100,000 tigers. Now there are only 3200 left. There's only about 700 mountain gorillas left. Polar bears are also in great danger due to global warming.

    There's about 7 billion humans though. That's the simplest reason why animals are going extinct. People don't like tigers and gorillas in their backyard.

    Conservation is not all about hugging pandas its is also about choosing the stuff you buy carfully.
