Cross River Gorilla/Western Gorilla
Experts forecast that the number of this critically endangered species will have declined by 80 percent by the middle of the 21st century. The Western gorilla is a subspecies of the Cross River gorilla group, and both are anticipated to be extinct in the next 30 years due to excessive poaching and hunting.
This critically endangered turtle has lost a full 80 percent of its population during the last decade. Prior to this, population numbers only decreased at a rate of 10 percent over the past century. Hunting and the pollution of its natural habitat have placed this species on the critically endangered list.
