WHAT IS AN ENDANGERED SPECIES?

Poster competition at the NC ZooAn endangered species is an animal or plant that is in danger of becoming extinct, meaning it would no longer be alive on our Earth. There are more than 1,000 animal species endangered worldwide. North Carolina alone has 35 threatened and endangered animal species. There are many reasons why a species may become endangered, including habitat destruction, introduced species, disease, pollution, animal trade, population, and the list goes on. But remember, Endangered means there is still time!

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Everyone can help. The smallest things we do every day can make a difference.
