Habitats and

Species
By Raquel S
Define: A Threatened Habitat and
An Endangered Species
• A threatened habitat is a type of
environment, where a particular animal lives,
which is in danger of extinction in the future.
• An endangered species is a group of animals
that are in danger of being ‘wiped out’ from
the world very soon.
Define: Extinction
Extinction is when something no longer
exists. There is absolutely no more of a
particular species or ‘thing’ in our world, as
it has been completely wiped out.
