In Pakistan, the list of endangered species is growing at a rapid speed. The reasons for animal extinction are a loss of habitat, environmental degradation, hunting, etc. Many animals in Pakistan, including Markhor and Indus river dolphins, are disappearing at an accelerated rate. Experts have speculated that a few species of plants are close to extinction as well.
This imbalance in the ecosystem carries a great risk to humans as well. It is estimated that, in Pakistan, at least 12 percent of the flora is threatened and several of the faunal species are threatened too. To protect endangered wildlife, the eco-sociological perspective or the human factor need to be made an important shareholder in the process of conservation. Steps should be taken to save wildlife.
