62 species of mammals of Argentina are threatened with extiction.

The populations of most mammal species are diminishing, mainly due to transformation of wild habitats and other problems caused by the expansion of the human population: deforestation, hunting, roadkill, poisoning, etc.
 
In the year 2003 some 62 species of mammals of Argentina are threatened with extiction, but doubtlessly many others now have very reduced and fragmented populations. Land clearing, crops, highways - even cities - result in the elimination of wild habitats, which are the only places in which these animals can survive.
 
As populations become fragmented there is no chance of genetic exchange between the isolated groups, leading to high risk of local extinction and eventually global extermination. Many species of Argentina are no longer found in vast parts of their original ranges, where they might still have been found only a few years back.
