Crocodile heads Why are they dying out?
  • Pollution, chopping down rainforests and building all affect animal habitats which means they have nowhere to live and nothing to eat.

  • Another big problem is humans introducing new plants and animals on to small islands. This can result in older species being wiped out.

  • Buying and selling some exotic animals for their skins like crocodiles is illegal in many places but people still do it.

  • Elephants are killed for their ivory tusks which are used for jewellery and medicine in some countries.
