Why Are They Endangered?
There are many reasons why all of the animals listed above are endangered. The main reason is because people are taking away the animals' space. Here are more specific reasons.
This possum is endangered because people are taking space to use for themselves. Farmers need to clear space to grow crops, builders are making houses for others to live in, etc.
The reason that these guys are endangered is that before, farmers believed that they ate a lot of the livestock. They began killing many tasmanian devils until the population was very low.
Northern Hairy Nosed Wombat
The hairy nosed wombat is endangered because the aborigines and early settlers hunted them too much for their meat and fur. They were killed with shooting and by poisoning plants that the wombats ate. Also, farmers cleared too much space for their cattle and sheep to graze. Many of these wombats are killed by road accidents.
Most dingoes are killed by poisoning, shooting, or trapping. They are hunted for their meat and skin.
