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

According to the World Wildlife Fund and the World Economic Forum, about 20 species are about to go extinct. Some species may have relatively low numbers, but they are not necessarily # 1 on the WWF priority list, and there are some species on the list that appear to have high populations. That has to do with their rates and cycles of reproduction.

It's worrying how quickly populations are declining for some organisms! The hawksbill turtle, for instance, has a population well into the thousands but their fragile egg-hatching reproductive cycles position them high on the priority list.However, those on our list are currently extinct in the wild, like the Hawaiian crow, and efforts to drive them back into the wild were futile, given the fact that they still have a population of about a hundred.

First, begin with the knowledge. Look at our list of endangered animals and why they are threatened, and seek to avoid doing actions that might directly endanger them, such as hunting, adding to ocean waste, or creating traditional Chinese medicine that includes threatened animal parts. Then, look at the evidence to see what you can do to help wild, threatened, to critically endangered species get extinct.

You might be able to contribute to the WWF, volunteer in the community, educate others, get in contact with wildlife resources in your state, and place pressure on local governments if they threaten local wildlife or trade with communities that do. Let's work together to keep alive the animals most at risk in the world!
