32 Endangered Species, Ranked by Their Current Population Left #infographic

Around 20 animals are about to go extinct according to the World Wildlife Fund and the World Economic Forum. Many species may have fairly small numbers, but they are not necessarily # 1 on the WWF priority list and some species tend to have large populations on the list. This has to do with their reproductive rates and periods.

It's alarming how quickly the populations for certain species are decreasing! For example, the hawksbill turtle has a population well into the thousands but their delicate egg-hatching reproductive cycles position them high on the priority list. Furthermore, those on our list are currently endangered in the wild, including the Hawaiian crow, and attempts to push them back into the wild have been unsuccessful given that they only have a population of around one hundred.

First, start with the information. Look at our list of endangered animals and why they are threatened, and try to prevent acts that may specifically endanger them, such as hunting, adding ocean waste, or developing traditional Chinese medicine that contains endangered parts of the species. Then look at the facts and see what you can do to help wild, endangered species become extinct.

You might be able to donate to the WWF, volunteer in the community, inform others, get in touch with your state's wildlife resources and put pressure on local governments if they endanger local wildlife or trade with communities doing so. Let's work together to keep the most at risk animals in the world alive!
