D looks fine.

A) endangered of is a bad idiom. It should be endangered by
B) wrong tense sequence.
C) contraction is unnecessary
E) it should be are in danger of even then the tense would be wrong.

The correct answer is D, which uses the form to be in danger of + a gerund (doing, being, etc.). All the other sentences use unidiomatic forms. Additionally, B uses an ambiguous and inappropriate they. E is also incorrect because it uses a present tense, and the date 1998 clearly puts this sentence in the past tense.
