Endangered Species of the World

Also some endangered plants, flowers and more!

The water buffalo is really a big surprise for this list as we think of it as a domesticaed animal, but like horses, it’s the wild cousins of the domesticated beasts that are at risk. There are as few as 2,500 mature individuals left and researchers estimate the species has experienced a population decline of at least 50% over the last three generations. The major threats include interbreeding with feral and domestic buffalo, as well as hunting and habitat loss.

Even the most charming of animals is endangered. The South Asian River Dolphin has two subspecies based on the river systems in which they are found, the Ganges River Dolphin and the Indus River Dolphin. Though a strong effort has been made to research and conserve the species, there is still relatively little known about them. Of the Ganges River Dolphins, there are about 1,200-1,800 left, while there are an estimated 965 Indus River Dolphins left.

the San Joaquin Antelope Ground Squirrel of California has less than 20% of its former range and an estimated 124,000-413,000 individuals left.
