    Organization
    I really liked the pictures and their captions. My only critique would be that there are like two clumps of information. I think that if they were spread out that it may have looked more organized. This was one of my favorites though due to the amount of info and the pics.

    Problems
    Facing the Slender Loris!
    The Slender Loris is under threat from the #1 cause of extinction which is habitat destruction.
    They are also hunted for medicinal uses and food.

    Unfortuately, the Slender Loris is loosing much of its habitat to deforestation.

    Predictions:
    For the Slender Loris: It may have to leave the high elevation of trees for lower areas, where it may not find as much food. Unfortunately, in lower areas it will find many more predators.
    For the environment: Not only the slender loris but any number of animals may be forced out of the trees and into other, less apealing forests. This may lead to the endangerment or even extinction of many species.

    They are also hunted for medicinal uses and food.
    the forests in which they live in are now extremely small, isolated, and very populated by other animals.

    After a while, the population will go down.
    And the ones that do survive, or reproduce, will eventually drown, because they can't swim forever.
    Some scientists predict that the icebergs will be completely gone by the summer twenty years from now.

    {save-polar-bears.jpg} Due to Global Warming, these poor defenseless creatures are losing their homes.
    {irem_polar_bear.jpg} {Icebergs.jpg} They cannot survive without the icebergs. They will drown.
    Can the polar bears survive a habitat change?
    The answer is no. If the icebergs completely melt, leaving the polar bears with swimming as the only choice, then they won't surive.
    Why?
    Polar bears depend wholely on the icebergs because:
    *The seals that the polar bears eat live there because of the icebergs,
    *The polar bears need the icebergs in order to hunt for the seals
    If the icebergs melt, that means less food from lack of seals, and less ground to hunt for what's left.
    Polar bears reproduce less if there is.
    After a while, the population will go down.
    And the ones that do survive, or reproduce, will eventually drown, because they can't swim forever.
