Once They’re Gone, There’s No Bringing Them Back
The Carolina Parakeet, the Golden Toad, the West African Black Rhino, and so many others… whether they’re long-gone, recently gone, or soon-to-be gone, they’re a loss to the world. No one will ever get to enjoy seeing these magnificent animals. They won’t play the role in nature that they were destined to have.
Currently, more than 3,000 species of animals are considered endangered. In the United States, the Endangered Species Act was passed in 1973 to help with conservation efforts, but there are now three times as many endangered species as there were just ten years ago. To learn more about those animals, explore the Faunalytics library articles and other resources below.
Our Most Popular Endangered Species Articles
Laws Are Not Enough To Protect Endangered Sea Turtles
In Madagascar, the laws in place are not enough to protect sensitive marine wildlife. Animals are still being illegally killed due to inadequate enforcement.
Should Humans Intervene In Nature To Stop Wild Animal Suffering?
Should we intervene in nature to reduce the tremendous amount of suffering endured by wild animals?
The End Of Captive Zoo Breeding
Captive breeding programs in zoos have reached the limit of their effectiveness, and population growth is declining. Where do we go from here?
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, we are now losing animal species at more than 1,000 times the “normal” rate. Here are the top endangered animals in the world… some of whom may sadly be next:

Faunalytics helps save threatened and endangered animals.
We do that by providing animal advocates with the crucial knowledge they need to succeed. We give them information to help them plan programs that get better results and get them quicker. See our articles devoted to endangered animals.
Our annual public opinion poll is the only source of trends on how people think about and act toward animals, including endangered species.
We’ve created the largest online library of research on animal protection issues, with more than 4,000 abstracts, articles, and reports.
Free & Discounted Services
We give free help to select small groups and bring custom research to bigger groups for far less than they’d pay for-profit firms.
