As amazing as it is to hear about lucky animals being taken off the endangered species list, there are still far too many creatures out there on the brink of total extinction.
It’s heartbreaking to imagine our planet letting all of the beautiful animals listed below “go the way of the dodo,” as they say. As the great panda proved when the species was de-classified as endangered, conservation is something that can truly make a difference for the animals who share our planet.
I know I’d personally love to see the very same thing happen for all of the names below. You might be surprised to learn just how hard times have been for each one. Or perhaps their plight happened to slip your mind over the years — something I’ve definitely been guilty of in the past.
Take a look to learn which animals we might be losing and what might be their biggest threat to survival.
