Endangered Species

On this page you will find wildlife that are on the endangered list. You can help the plight of these animals.

Endangered animals are animal species that need our attention. They are having difficulty, for one reason or another, staying alive in their natural environments. Many of them are in so much danger that scientists have made a list of them called the Endangered Species List. This is to let everybody know which animals need the most help. Unless we take action now to help these animals, many of them will become extinct.

Why do we need animals and plants?

Because the world would be less beautiful and wonderful without them.

What's more important, all of the animals and plants on earth are linked together. Each specie has a special role in keeping the world of nature going. Every time a specie disappears, the natural world does not work as well as it used to. If too many become extinct, we may find the world doesn't work anymore.

Many people have attitudes toward nature that are selfish and destructive, for this reason, the only thing that we can do is to get people to change some of their attitudes. Below is a link to things that you can do to help these animals.
