Endangered is the looming threat of harm and or extinction. Many things could fall into this category but it is generally referring to species. According to the species directory animals are ranked on a conservation status; critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, near threatened, and least concern.
Here are few of the critically endangered: Amur Leopard, Black, Javan, & Sumatran Rhino, Hawksbill Turtle, Sumatran Elephant, Orangutan, & Tiger, South China Tiger, Yangtze Finless Porpoise, the Mountain & Western Lowland Gorilla. There are many more on the endangered species list. You can access the full list here:
This is a great opportunity to shed some light on the endangered species around the world. We must work together to promote awareness, render solutions, and implement actions to ensure the future of these species. Not to mention there are Orangutans, Chimpanzees, Bonobos, Black Spider Monkeys and Gorillas on those lists… which hits a little close to home in our Side Bars!
So please join us for Endangered on Sunday, September 7th!
