3 Supplemental Activity includes eight pages of information and six question and answer activities. Also included are links for video viewing. The Supplemental Activity is intended to enhance News-2-You and Unique (ULS) content. Newspaper Overview Topic: Endangered Animals Some of the world’s animals are endangered; some animals have even disappeared forever. Every continent on Earth has some endangered animals. One endangered animal in North America is the Island Fox, on the Channel Islands in California. Nature groups helped the Island Fox and now its numbers are growing again. ULS Overview Topic: Government People share the world with each other and with animals. Government leaders can make choices about the environment that are good and fair for all living things. Some choices people have made have caused animals to become endangered. Citizens have a responsibility to make good choices about many things in our country and world. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

4 Every continent has endangered animals. Let’s learn more about some of these endangered animals. 2 We listed a few of these in the newspaper. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

5 Sometimes many animals die because of disease. Animals also die because of very bad weather, like hurricanes. Some animals die because of things that people do, like polluting the places animals live. People and other animals have also over-hunted some kinds of animals, and now there are few left. 3 Animals become endangered for many reasons. Let’s learn more about some of the endangered animals from different continents. Human pollution can hurt animals. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

6 How is a Black Rhinoceros like an elephant? How is it different? The Black Rhinoceros comes from southern and eastern Africa. 4 Black Rhinoceros Rhinoceroses are herbivores, which means they only eat plants. They use their large horns to dig up roots and break branches. The Black Rhinoceroses have been over-hunted because their horns are used for medicines and carvings. Some kinds of rhinoceroses are completely gone and only a few are left of some other kinds. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

7 Humpback Whale What other animals live in the ocean? Another endangered animal is the Humpback Whale. 5 The Humpback Whale is found in oceans around the world. During the summer, this whale swims to the waters near Antarctica, where it eats the fish there. Humpbacks are some of the largest living animals, 40 to 50 feet long. The Humpback was once nearly gone because of hunting, but new laws helped bring them back. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

20 How would you feel if all these turtles were gone? The Short-necked Turtle is a very endangered reptile. 6 Short-necked Turtle The small Short-necked Turtle lives in freshwater swamps in Australia. Many swamps in Australia have been drained to make farmland, so the turtles have lost their homes. Turtles are omnivores, meaning they eat other animals and also plants. Scientists think there are only about 15 to 25 Short-necked Turtles left in Australia! © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

21 Have you ever seen a jaguar in a zoo? The jaguar is the only “big cat” in South America. 7 Jaguar Some jaguars also live in Mexico and other parts of Central America. The jaguar is a carnivore, meaning it only eats the meat of animals that it hunts. The spotted cats hunt many animals, such a deer, foxes and fish. The jaguar used to live in the United States too, but people have hunted them until they were gone. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013

22 What would you like to do to help animals? Can people do something to help animals nearby? Yes! 8 Plant a tree! Pick up trash tossed on the ground, along roads or on beaches. Animals could eat the trash and get sick. Always throw trash in a trash can, not on the ground or in a lake. Do not kill good insects, like spiders. They eat smaller bugs and are food for birds and other animals. Plant trees. Trees provide homes and food for birds and small animals. © n2y Endangered Animals April 1, 2013
