Endangered Animals

The conservation status of a species indicates the likelihood that it will become extinct. Many factors are considered when assessing the conservation status of a species; e.g., such statistics as the number remaining, the overall increase or decrease in the population over time, breeding success rates, or known threats.

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species is the best-known worldwide conservation status listing and ranking system.

Over 40% of the world's species are estimated to be at risk of extinction.
