Solution

As a biology student, I would suggest the below given method that can protect these threatened species from becoming extinct:

  • Ex situ conservation - The threatened species of plants and animals are taken out of their habitats and are kept in special settings such as zoological parks, botanical gardens and wildlife parks.
Nowadays, the gametes of endangered species can be preserved by methods such as cryopreservation and can be fertilised in vitro followed by propagation through tissue culture methods. Similarly, seeds can be preserved in seed banks.

This method is an off-site conservation method.

Concept: Extinction
