|Bison skull pile|
Today we are going to talk about endangered species. Some species become extinct naturally. For example, dinosaurs became extinct because of a natural disaster. However, some species become extinct because of human behaviour. Look at the picture on the left. Hundreds of Bison were killed in order to make this pile of skulls. The Bison nearly became extinct because of hunting in the 19th century.
