Endangered Species

The time that threatened or endangered plants or species have left in this world is limited, but there are steps you can take to help them continue. The cutting down of forests, loss of habitat, pollution, and pesticides all impact upon plant and animal life, as do natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions. It is important to teach children about endangered animals, so they can learn how their actions effect wildlife, as well as how to protect these animals from extinction. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has several publications that explain how a plant or animal becomes endangered, and what is being done to protect them. Publications include Endangered Species and Why Save Endangered Species?
