Habitat loss, climate change, poaching, and pollution paint a bleak picture for threatened and endangered species around the world. The loss of a single species is a tragic event and yet we lose an estimated 10,000 species to extinction every year

Endangered animals in the U.S. include the gray wolf, manatee, ocelot, panther, and many types of bats and whales, but there are countless other undiscovered species threatened by extinction without our knowledge.

Biodiversity refers to the variety of life in any given area. Humans have identified 1.7 million species (groups of living organisms that interbreed) but estimates of total number of species on the planet may total 100 million. Tropical rainforests contain the most biodiversity, and invertebrates (animals without backbones) comprise half of the world’s identified species.
