Our Ten Most Endangered Species

As you view the endangered animals on our list of the 10 Most Endangered Animal Species, please keep in mind is that there currently are thousands of birds and animals that may not be with us in a couple of decades. The many threats facing the world’s wildlife include habitat loss—in many cases due to the rapid destruction of the world’s rain forests—as well as illegal hunting (which has increased astronomically in recent years), and global climate change, which is having a great effect even on wildlife habitat this is not being directly destroyed by humans.

So as we’ve said many times previously on this site, a top 10 endangered species list is just a list, and a ten most endangered animals list put together by one organization or publication is likely to be very different—an no more right or wrong—that a roster of endangered creatures assembled by a different organization or publication. We create our annual list solely for the enjoyment and illumination of our readers, and we hope that you, as a reader, view this top 10 list of endangered animals as a starting point, rather than any kind of final word, in your explorations of the world’s precious and dwindling wildlife.

To view the most endangered list, click the list link in the first paragraph. Those of you who’ve seen it in previous years may note that this time around, we’ve decided to stand pat. That is, our 2019 endangered species list is contains the same lineup of critically threatened animals that we offered in 2018.
