Endangered Species Day
Florida panthers, big sea bass, and the red wolf are just a few of the animals listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. As the human population grows and the rich nations continue to consume sources at voracious charges, we are crowding out, poisoning and eating all other species into extinction.
Scientists inform us one of the simplest ways to protect endangered species is to guard the particular places where they reside. Wildlife should have places to find meals, shelter and lift their young.

Still others, just like the polar bear, are going through extinction due to fossil fuels driving catastrophic international warming. Protect wildlife habitat.Perhaps the best risk that faces many species is the widespread destruction of habitat.
With the world population hitting 7 billion, the Center is marking this milestone by releasing a listing of species in the United States dealing with extinction brought on by the rising human population. The 10 species represent a spread of geography, as well as species diversity – however all are critically threatened by the results of human inhabitants. Some, just like the Florida panther and Mississippi gopher frog, are quickly losing habitat as the human population expands. Others are seeing their habitat dangerously altered – like the small flowering sandplain gerardia in New England – or, like the bluefin tuna, are buckling under the weight of huge overfishing.
