In 1996, tigers, giant pandas, and black rhinos were all listed as endangered. How many of these three species are more critically endangered today? <br /> A: Two of them <br /> B: One of them <br /> C: None of them <br /><br /> And you select C as the correct answer. <br /><br /> I am a biologist who worked many years in Conservation issues at the Zoology Department at the University of Oxford and I woudl like to mention that your answer is incorrect. There are several species of black Rhinos and If you look at the IUCN list of endangered species you will see that the Black Rhino is Critically Endangered. <br /> Also tigers are in the Red List of the IUCN as Endangered. Only pandas are not so because of the breeding programme in China, but even then we can argue how many of the pandas are actually released in nature. problem 1 2 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7720874 7720874 health and wealth of nations does not load properly from the bottom of the gapminder.org page 2018-04-16T23:42:09Z 2018-04-15T04:37:22Z Margaret Waterman http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9628172 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11262010//platform/profilepic/_medium. margaret_waterman problem 1 2 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7720206 7720206 Single Story 2018-04-16T23:31:43Z 2018-04-13T17:10:23Z Virginia Vassar http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9626157 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11261304/photo_medium.jpg virginia_vassar Hi, <br /><br /> I think this is a really interesting site, but I am troubled by some of the country profiles (e.g. Nigeria) that do not show any of the country's range of wealth. It seems to contribute to the stereotypical single story of African life in many countries as poverty-stricken and rural. <br /><br /> I would also love to see more information on the site about how participants are selected, how approval and release of information are acquired and how participants are compensated as well. Is it just random or is there a process to try and get a diverse, accurate sample? question 1 2 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7719298 7719298 How to keep statistics - and opportunities up-to-date. 2018-04-12T07:54:55Z 2018-04-12T07:47:26Z Anthony Burton http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9623611 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11260437/photo_medium.jpg anthony_burton_dgnn2wesfmcss Not really a problem but your current link to the ignorance test/certificate at <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/news/help-us-spread-a-fact-based-worldview/" rel="nofollow">https://www.gapminder.org/news/help-u...</a> is awkward.

Is there a link to the source of this anywhere? As far as I can see the actual number (not as a percentage) has increased as the population has significantly increase even though the percentage has decreased. question 1 2 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7690560 7690560 UK families income heavily misrepresented. 2018-04-03T00:18:04Z 2018-02-20T10:49:56Z Philip Matyashevsky http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9545957 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11233388/photo_medium.jpg philip_matyashevsky_gv50mmseccpxh Income for the UK families is not right.

I was browsing and saw the oliver family in the uk - $780 per month seems off with 2 people working 70 hours between them - minimum wage is 7 pound so with even with one working 40 hours on minimum wage - its about 1000 GBP a month which translates to almost $1400 a month (todays rates) ref: <a href="http://www.netsalarycalculator.co.uk/what-you-need-to-know-about-minimum-wage-in-the-uk/" rel="nofollow">http://www.netsalarycalculator.co.uk/...</a> <br /><br /> Great idea /site , but this stuck out to me as wrong as is. problem 1 2 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/6505227 6505227 Missing Country? 2018-04-02T10:53:00Z 2015-01-12T03:22:08Z Don Kaufman http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/7321993 https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/d2974b4b32de7fa0a0c48e890bd9d249?d=identicon&s=55&r=PG don_kaufman Scotland is missing from your list of countries.

Okay let's move on. It is quite a nice idea I love it. But when I started to check United Kingdoms country and how there people are living. I came with a funny feeling that it's not true. Because I live in UK I can compare for example with me. My monthly earning are way a bit more than this family ( <a href="https://www.gapminder.org/dollar-street/family?thing=Families&amp;countries=World&amp;regions=World&amp;zoom=4&amp;row=1&amp;lowIncome=NaN&amp;highIncome=NaN&amp;place=5901b0750caee015a141b82d&amp;lang=en" rel="nofollow">https://www.gapminder.org/dollar-stre...</a> ) they have a massive house, a big family, earnings are lower than mine. I can`t afford a house, I even can`t take a mortgage because of my low income which is $ 1899.72/month. So now I believe that you can`t trust website, which is sad. People lies to you. problem 1 2 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7705579 7705579 UK Dollar Street data. 2018-03-23T17:05:42Z 2018-03-17T23:55:08Z A J Wright http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9586567 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11247579/photo_medium.jpg a_j_wright I think the UK data is per week rather than per month, minimum wages for a full time worker in the UK would be £909 ~1,310.67 USD. So the minimum monthly income for a two full-time earner UK household would be around $2,600. problem 2 3 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7708074 7708074 Why does Gapminder tool contain no data about Taiwan or HongKong 2018-03-22T12:28:02Z 2018-03-22T12:28:02Z shihnh http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9593913 https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/68cf1597bc2388b468b9cd18bebc4fc3?d=identicon&s=55&r=PG shihnh There is data about Taiwan in the web Gapminder World. However, While I try to explres more data about Taiwan, I found there is no data about Taiwan or HongKong. Taiwan and Hongkong, as important regions in East Asian economy, which is quite different from China, are quite informative. Anyone adds the data would be appreciated. question 0 0 1 create
