So far we've been talking only about extinct animals, but what about the animals the are GOING extinct? That is what this page is all about. These animals are called endangered animals. There are quite a few endangered animals and there are many people who are trying to save them. If you would like to learn about what you could do, visit the Take Action page. If you would like to learn about some of the reasons animals are going extinct, visit our Threats to Survival page.
Here's an interesting fact to get you thinking...
128 our of 10,000 species of birds have disappeared in the last 500 years and 1,200 are currently threatened with extinction. We may lose 500 more bird species in this century!
