List of endangered animals, with pictures and links to further information.
It’s hard to believe that many of the world’s best-known animals are fighting for survival. Today there are fewer than 4,000 tigers left in the wild. It would be a tragedy if tigers disappeared from the wild altogether, but it could happen in our lifetimes.
In the list of endangered animals below we’ve included not only well-known animals, but also animals you may never have heard of. The humphead wrasse or black-footed ferret may not be as famous as tigers and elephants, but their plight is every bit as serious.
This list is not definitive; sadly, there are many more species currently in danger. The information on this page is regularly updated. If there are any animals that you feel should be in this list but aren’t, let us know in the comments below.
We have included links to further information about many of the animals, and also links to relevant charities. Click on the photos, or on the links, to find out more.
