Threatened Habitats and Endangered Species By Raquel S
Define: Define: A Threatened Habitat and An Endangered Species A threatened habitat is a type of environment, where a particular animal lives, which is in danger of extinction in the future. An endangered species is a group of animals that are in danger of being ‘wiped out’ from the world very soon.
