Statistics say that every single day, between 150 and 200 species of plants, animals and insects go extinct.

Tim Flach is a famous photographer who wanted to raise awareness about this issue. He's traveled all over the globe photographing animals and recently compiled a new series of images, entitled Endangered.

All of the animals you see in these images are facing extinction.

The reasons for their imminent end may vary, but the vast majority of those reasons are the fault of humans. Poaching, habitat destruction, climate change, pollution, and other factors are all being caused by us and having a huge effect on our planet.

The photos are stunning, but there's a quiet sadness in the eyes of each creature as we realize that in a matter of months, weeks, or even days, their species will no longer exist.

Flach encourages people to ask themselves the question: "To whom does the term 'endangered' really apply?" 

Tim Flach

"We as humans are connected to animals through our origins. If we don't value them, we might lose them, and lose part of ourselves in the process."

It might already be too late for many of these animals, but there are countless other species that could still be saved.

Flach hopes his images trigger some compassion and action in those who see them, and we hope so too. The world isn't just ours. We need to do a better job of sharing it and looking after it.
