Endangered Species

Extinction and endangerment can occur naturally in the course of evolution. Since humans became the dominant species on the planet, however, the rate at which other species have become extinct has increased dramatically. At present, scientists believe extinctions caused by humans are taking place at 100 to 1,000 times nature's normal rate between great extinction episodes.

Take a closer look at 24 endangered plants and animals:

Arabian Oryx Manatee
Bats Nichol's Turk's Head Cactus
Condor Northern Aplomado Falcon
Desert Bandicoot Owls
Desert Monitor Panamanian Golden Frog
Eastern Prairie Fringed Orchid Queen Alexandra's Birdwing Butterfly
Fishing Cat Short-necked Turtle
Golden Parakeet Snakes
Harpy Eagle Southern River Otter
Hine's Emerald Dragonfly Spix's Macaw
Jaguar Sumatran Orangutan
