'The Great Grey Owl'
 This owl grows to a length of 59 to 85 cm and is found in the northern coniferous forests of Europe, North America and Asia. Its size consists mainly of feathers, which protect it from the northern cold. The Great Grey Owl hunts birds and small mammals such as mice. His specialty is his phenomenal hearing. With its striking, disc-shaped head it scans the snowy landscape and is able to detect the smallest movements under the snow.

For centuries, rhinoceroses were widely present in the African savannas and Asian tropical forests. Today, few rhinos live outside of national parks and reserves. These animals have few natural predators, but their habitat is endangered. The fertile grasslands are used as agricultural land, forests are being cut down. Unfortunately is poaching the biggest threat to this animal.

Humanity has always flourished thanks to nature. In order to continue to evolve as a society, we will remain dependent on natural resources. Its protection and its evolution towards sustainable management are therefore essential conditions for a prosperous future.
Biodiversity is the colourful collection of all growing plants and animal species and how they together form a beautiful living whole. Balancing biodiversity is just as important for nature as it is for humans: from the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink to our physical and mental well-being. 

 Here are 10 reasons why animals are in danger of extinction
