Greater bamboo lemur
There are only 60-100 greater bamboo lemurs left on this planet. Earlier, they were thought to be extinct, but luckily some of their species are still alive. However, they are highly endangered at the moment.
These gorillas are also one of the critically endangered animals on planet. There are several measures being taken to protect them from hunting, diseases and other reasons that lead to their death.
The Rhinoceros is killed for its horn, which is quite expensive - according to an estimate a rhino horn can be sold at a price 100 times to that of ivory in the black market. Although its situation is better than some of the other animals, yet the population is coming down.
