The male stands up to ten feet high to its shoulder, and weighs up to six tons. The female is slightly smaller, and weighs up to four tons. It is classified as an endangered species due to a reduction of at least 50% of the African elephant population over the last three generations based on an index of abundance. Hunting of the African elephant is now banned in several countries, but poaching for ivory still exists . </li></ul>
  4. 4. Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus) The Asian elephant is classified as a member of the order Proboscidea (Elephants) and is a member of the family Elephantidae. It stands up to ten feet high and twenty feet long. It weighs up to 10,000 pounds. The Asian elephant is classified as an endangered species due to a reduction of at least 50% of the Asian elephant population over the last three generations based on an index of abundance and a decline in area of occupancy. The Asian elephant has four subspecies: the Indian, Ceylon, Sumatran, and Malaysian elephants.

The Aye-aye is about the size of a rabbit, and is brown. It is a nocturnal animal. The Aye-aye is classified as an endangered species due to a projected reduction of at least 50% of the Aye-aye population over the next ten years based on levels of exploitation and a decline in area of occupancy. Also, the Aye-aye has an estimated population of less than 2500 and an observed continuing decline in the form of severely fragmented subpopulations. The Aye-aye builds nests out of twigs to hide during the day. It can be found on the African island of Madagascar . </li></ul>

The blue whale is classified as an endangered species due to a reduction of at least 50% of the blue whale population over the last three generations based on direct observation, an index of abundance, and actual levels of exploitation. The blue whale is the largest mammal to have lived on the earth, but it feeds on some of the smallest marine organisms: plankton .
  11. 11. Red Wolf (Canis rufus) <ul><li>The red wolf is classified as a member of the order Carnivora (Carnivores) and is a member of the family Canidae.

It is classified as a critically endangered species due to a reduction of at least 80% of its population over the past three generations because of a decline in area of occupancy, extent of occurrence, or quality of habitat. The Amur Leopard population is also estimated to be less than 50 mature individuals. Amur Leopards can be found in eastern Asia . </li></ul>
