Endangered species

  1. 1. ( Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office, 2009)
  2. 2. (@ Doug88888, 2011) The Siberian Tiger Population: Around 3,500 subspecies Faces extinction due to illegal hunting and habitat loss
  3. 3. (Henderson, 2008) The Amur Leopard Population: less than 40 individuals left Faces extinction from illegal hunting, habitat loss, and lack of diversity due to small population size
  4. 4. (Richardson, 2008) The Florida Panther Population: Around 80 Faces extinction from habitat loss, Fragmentation, and mortality due to automobile strikes
  5. 5. (Cloudtail, 2012) The Polar Bear Population: 20,000- 25,000 Faces extinction due to declining habitat and climate change
  6. 6. (Gunther, 2004) The Giant Panda Population: 1,000-2000 Faces extinction due to decreasing habitat
  7. 7. (Luna, 2009) The Cheetah Population: 7,000-10,000 Faces extinction from habitat loss
  8. 8. The Grizzly Bear Population: more than 500 in the U.S. lower 48 States Faces extinction from illegal hunting and habitat loss (Calleja, 2011)
  9. 9. International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List A list established in 1994 that contains explicit criteria and categories to classify the conservation status of individual species on the basis of their extinction.
  10. 10. Red List Criteria • The rate of population decline • The geographic range • Whether a species already possesses a small population size • Whether a species is very small or lives in a restricted area • Whether the results of quantitative analysis indicates a high probability of extinction in the world
  11. 11. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 Obligates federal and state governments to protect all threatened life with extinction and this process is aided by the creation and continued maintenance of an endangered species list. It also promotes the protection of critical habitats essential to the survival of a given species.
