As of July 2016, The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has noted that their are 1,368 animals and 2,269 plants that are endangered or threatened. These include some of the following animals, which World Wild Life considers as critically endangered:

Amur Leopard • Black Rhino • Cross River Gorilla • Hawksbill Turtle • Jaban Rhino • Leatherback Turtle • Mountain Gorilla • Pangolin • Saola • South China Tiger • Sumatran Elephant • Sumatran Orangutan • Sumatran Rhino • Sumantran Tiger • Vaquita • Western Lowland Gorilla • Yangtze Finless Porpoise

Critically Endangered species and habitats face a very high risk of extinction in the wild. In an open letter published in July by BioScience, 43 scientists working as wildlife researchers have called for increased efforts to protect the Earth’s largest and most enchanting species before humanity wipes them out. The situation is bleak for elephants, gorillas and nearly a hundred lesser-known species.

“Extinction is forever,” said William Ripple, a professor at Oregon State University and lead author of the letter. Ripple hopes the letter will bring awareness to the problem and more importantly action. Read the full letter - click here
