Animal Planet Endangered Species

Fewer than 7,000 snow leopards are alive today. The world has fewer than 2,000 Yangtze Finless Porpoises. Only 60 Javan Rhinos remain. These statistics from Animal Planet's Endangered Species section are jarring, but not without hope. For each of the more than 40 species listed, the site curates a How You Can Help section, inviting action in a variety of forms, from supporting conservation organizations to educating yourself on reducing threats and harm to species. The site also provides general education on endangered species. Clicking on an animal of interest from the list, readers will locate information such as the animal's scientific name and endangered status, as well as video footage and related news stories. Many of the profiles also link to additional endangered species lists, including the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, where readers can learn even more about animals facing threats and how they can help. Launched in 1996, Animal Planet is a television network aptly named for its coverage of animals and wildlife.
