On her left side a huge scimitar was bound with iron, the free hand also wielding a short sword. Her face was calm, her eyes stared ominously at the beleaguered people as she raised her voice in the accusation.- Peikkar, I am Queen She-Ra. Go back, every last man, woman, and child among you!

Some female would have been afraid to be alone at that hour of night, and so she left the house. But this is the Bath of Vanessa, and there are no ghosts here."
Endangered species are those at risk of becoming extinct in the near future. Endemic species are more vulnerable, as they have more limited habitat. Other factors that can make a species endangered include pollution, deforestation, overharvesting, human diseases, climate change, and consumption of endangered species.
As human activity substantially changes natural patterns, fewer and fewer species will survive. Humans can help to prevent the extinction of endangered species by conserving land and water before it is too late.
