Earth's Endangered Creatures lists endangered plants and animals of the world that are threatened with extinction. It is split into 11 parts–seven of which are the seven continents of our planet and also an Oceanic, Middle East, and Central America category. Hawaii is the endangered species capital of the world and has been individually categorized. Be sure and visit this section as well when searching for North American endangered species.
Because many different governments and agencies keep different endangered species lists, there is not one official endangered species list, but many. EEC has chosen a select list of official lists, listing creatures with certain list-specific statuses (i.e. endangered (FWS), critically endangered (IUCN), etc.) Below is a complete list of endangered species lists that we monitor. If there is an official endangered species list that you feel we should include, feel free to contact us, providing the name of the endangered species list and the agency/organization that maintains it:
US Fish & Wildlife List of Endangered Species (US FWS)
-Endangered (EN-US FWS)
IUCN Red List of Endangered Species (IUCN)
-Critically Endangered (CR-IUCN)
-Extinct in the Wild (EW-IUCN)
-Near Threatened (NT-IUCN)
Though species profiles and accounts are edited for accuracy, it is not guaranteed that all information provided in these profiles are 100% accurate. Wherever possible EEC provides references to books and websites believed to be reputable, but cannot guarantee that all information is current.
