Beauty of Nature by Young Artist Eden Znaty. All Rights Reserved. The Green Peafowl has been classified as an endangered species since 2012. They are ranged from 10,000 and 20,000 specimens. The reason I chose the peacock is because of their beautiful feathers and variety of colors. They are said to be nuisance to farmer’s crops. Because of that, farmers poison them which leads to extinction due to human structural development. They are driven out of their habitats with no home left. As you can see peacocks are such a beautiful species and are very under-appreciated.
