The wildlife of Ethiopia has drastically declined due to deforestation, frequent hunting and the practice of raising livestock. These factors led to the loss of natural habitats for the country's diverse fauna, with some of Ethiopia's endemic animals currently listed as endangered species. Other animals that roam the highlands of Ethiopia are lions, hyenas, foxes, buffaloes, monkeys, leopards, caracals, bushbucks and duikers. Ethiopia is also famous for its various species of birds, including lammergeyers, eagles, kestrels, falcons and buzzards.
