23 Most Endangered Animals in Asia

Asia is the world’s most extensive, populous, and rapidly developing continent.  It also appears to be the hub where most wild animals face extinction due to human conflict.

South China Tiger

As stated by the WWF, this Asian tiger is on the verge of extinction. This species was initially discovered in parts of China. Approximately 60 of these big cats now live in Chinese zoos.

Sumatran Orangutan

The Sumatran Orangutan, which originated in Indonesia, has been deemed a vulnerable species by the IUCN. Especially poaching and habitat degradation are threatening the Sumatran Orangutan community.

Wild Bactrian Camel

Bactrian camels, as opposed to single-humped Arabian camels, have two different humps on their backs. This species lives in northern China and southern Mongolia.

Javan Rhinoceros

In the Rhinocerotidae family, the Javan rhinoceros, commonly known as the Sunda rhino or one-horned rhino, is unique. Compared to other rhinoceros, their horns are shorter.

Giant Panda

Giant Pandas rely entirely on bamboo forests, and in the old days, they could wander from region to region in search of adequate quantities of food.

Mekong Giant Catfish

Only a few hundred individuals are left of this species. This is determined by the number of captured fisheries rather than a population parameter estimate.
