They are endangered species.

So, the reason for that is basically habitat loss.

So, bottom line is again human factor.

So we really need to change our behaviour as consumers, as human beings.

We have to decide that we are not the masters of this wild life, we are only a part of this ecosystem.

We have to work with this ecosystem, live along with this ecosystem, not try to run it, not try to manage it."
