Most of the endangered species are victims of 


Acid rain


Competition with introduced species


Habitat destruction




Endangered species are prone to become extinct. When there are no more individuals of a species (plant or animal) alive anywhere in the world, the species is said to be extinct. Extinction is also known as the process of dying out. The process is a completely natural part of evolution. But sometimes extinctions happen at a higher and a faster rate than usual. Factors such as large body size, small population, massive habitat loss and position at a higher trophic level favor extinction. As forests are the main habitat for the wild animals, their loss favors the extinction of the same.
So, the correct answer is 'Habitat destruction'.
