National Wildlife Day

These are the creatures that could disappear

These are the creatures that could disappear from each U.S. state


When you think of endangered animals, species found far inside a tropical rain forest or deep below the ocean’s surface might to spring to mind. However, each state in the U.S. is also home to its own unique animal at risk of going extinct.


“Recovering species is a biological question, not an economic question […] The new rules completely undermine the strength of the ESA. The point of the act is to prevent extinction; this is going to do the opposite. It’s going to undermine efforts to recover species.”

Leah Gerber
Prof. of Conservation Science, Arizona State University
