What is the difference between endangered animals vs threatened animals vs extinct animals?
Threatened means that the animal is vulnerable to extinction and the population of the animal is declining. (ex: Certain species of whale population are being threatened.)
Endangered means that the animal will soon be extinct if nothing is done about it. Some endangered animals are being bred in captivity until their numbers increase enough to be released back in the wild. (ex: Bald Eagles are an endangered species of bird. Pandas are an endangered species of bear.)
Extinct means that the animal has completely died out and there aren't any left of this species. (ex: Dinosaurs are an extinct species of reptile. Dodo is an extinct bird.)
Here's a visual:
Threatened-------------> Endangered---------------> Extinct
An extinct animal means there are none left; they all have died. Endangered means there is a small amount left of that animal and they are about to become extinct. Threatened means they are about to become endangered.
The difference is an endangered animals only has about a couple thousand of its kind left. Threatened animals still has a fair amount left. And extinct animals are all gone.
Animal species that are threatened are on the way to becoming endangered. Endangered animals are on their way to becoming extinct.
endangered means that there are not many left in the wild and extinct means that there are none left in the world. They animals skin has been used for making things with or they have been poached and eaten. This can be why they are extinct.1. Endangered: Not very many left2. Extinct: None left
Extinct- died outEndangered- on the verge of dying outeasily answered by a young person!
Endangered Species are ones that have a very small population and that population is at a greater risk of becoming extinct. Many species that become extinct never make to the endangered species list. Extinct Species are ones that are either known (documented) to be extinct or are so few in population that a recovery is considered highly unlikely even under excellent conditions.
a extinct animal that has no animals left in its species and a endangered animal has few animals left in its species
they are exstint
extinction is the death of every member of a species or group of taxa (A taxonplural:taxa) or taxonomic unit is a name designating an organism or a group of organisms). A species becomes extinct when the last existing member of that species dies. Extinction therefore becomes a certainty when there are no surviving individuals that are able to reproduce and create a new generation.A species may become functionally extinct when only a handful of individuals… Read More
1. Endangered animal means there are not many left.2. Extinct means that are completely wiped out. There are none left in the whole universe.
Endangered animals are animals that are almost extinct. Therefore, animals that are not endangered are not almost extinct.
extinct means that there are no more of that animal at all like dinosaurs. endangered means that the animal is about to become extinct and there is only a small amount of them still alive.
Well extinct means this animal species has died out, while endangered means there are very few of this animal species left and they will soon be extinct if not helped. Animals are usually poached for their parts. It could be for meat, fur, skin, horns, feathers, etc.
well to be threatened means that smeone or something is being..........UGH IM BORED I DONT WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/(LETS SURF!!)
Endangered animals are animals where there are so few surviving that they are at risk of dying out entirely. Common animals are animals that survive in such big numbers that they aren't at risk of disappearing.
An endangered animal is a animal that is going to be extinct (never going to live again) unless its situation improves. An extinct animal is a animal that is dead and there are no more of its species to carry on.
Extinct species have none living on the earthEndangered species are in danger of becoming extinct
What is the difference between an animal species that is threatened one that is extinct and one that is endangered?
Threatened means they could become endangered, endangered means they could become extinct.
an endangered animal is an animal that is almost extinct. a common animal is an animal that has lot's of its kind alive.
Snow Leopards , Pandas , African Dog , Siberian Tiger.
Endangered does not mean extinct. Extinct means all specimens of that species are gone. Endangered means that the species is in danger of extinction.
Endangered is when an animal is nearly extinct with only a few hundred or so left in the wild, whereas extinct is where the animal is gone for good and will never be seen again.
Endangered means there are still some of that animal but not many extinct means they are all gone
because humans are destroying their ecosystems and the animals are eating stuff that has been tainted by our chemicals.
No, in fact some have been removed from the Endangered Species List, or de-listed, at recovered numbers, the Bald Eagle is an example of this. I believe there are about 20 other species that have been de-listed due to their recovery numbers and breeding projections.
Because of many reasons. 1. Because other animals (or humans) are competing for it's food. 2. Because humans are hunting for it's body parts. If this keeps continuing and people don't do anything to protect the species, animals (and plants) will eventually become extinct. 3. its habitat is being destroyed.Endangered animals become extinct because they are in danger of dying out and sometimes they do. They can lose their habitat and people have hunted animals… Read More
Endangered means there aren't many of them left. Extinct means there are none left.
No, all endangered means is that there is a smaller than average amount of the animal. People could save it, by stopping hunting or reducing water pollution or air pollution etc.
Australia's most critically endangered animal is Gilbert's potoroo. Although captive breeding programmes are in place to try to save the last of these animals, their population is estimated at around 100 animals. They can only be found in isolated areas of far southwest Western Australia, including some offshore islands, to which captive breeding programmes have relocated some healthy specimens.
Manatees, Elephants, Rhinos, Pandas, Nile crocodiles, Okapi (they are awsome!!!!!!)
the extinct animals are in heaven and the endangered animals are all over the world in the wild and in zoos.
check the red list. It has every animal going extinct on it. :]
The answer would seem to be, extinct animals are gone forever, so they cannot be considered endangered. However. Sometimes, animals thought to be extinct can be found existing in isolated areas of their former habitat. Two examples are the ivory billed woodpecker and Bachman's warbler of the southern U.S. Both species were declared extinct, then strong video and eyewitness accounts by qualified observers show they are still with us.
extinct means there are no species alive today eg a dodo, endangered means is in danger of dying out eg a panda. i suggest you look in a dictionary for a more accurate answer :)
its the same, humans are animals!
Their are three main reasons:1- Many animals are being hunted, killed, or sold for their meat, fur, and sometimes just for sport.2- Large numbers of animals and plants species are being consumed at a faster rate than the time needed to produce new species.3-Dirtying of the air, water and soil by humans, which harms all living things.
when the last one of boy or girl is dead, they cannot reproduce
When every last one of that species dies and there is no more left to breed

According to which reporting organization, and their list, you will receive different numbers. These are some numbers from one of the main organizations that research and report on endangered and threatened species.The Endangered Species List currently shows in the U.S. 612 animal species listed, along with 746 plant species. Out of these 1128 species have approved recovery plans according to the list. Also, 520 of these species have U.S. designated critical habitat.
some animals are becoming extint because people hunt and kill animals for fur,tusks,skin etc.
Because we are using up resourses too quickly and people are over hunting/fishing. That is basically the reason. If we stoped cuting down forrests it wouldn't be such a big deal.
Endangered and extinct animals are similar because endangered animals sometimes become extinct.
An extinctt animal cannot be endangered. Do you mean how an endangered animal becomes extinct? Endangered animals become extinct by various reasons. It depends what animal it is. Most animals are killed by humans, or habitats destroyed. E.G: Tigers have become endangered because of poaching, and if this continuses, then they will become extinct. Animals become extinct becuase of a particular reason, which makes them endangered, then if carried on, extinct.
an endangered animal
dinosours, certain birds
Many reasons. Extinction is usually (but not always) preceded by a period of decline. The decline could be caused habitat destruction (either by direct human activity or climate change), disease or over hunting. Occasionally there is some dramatic event which causes the immediate or near-immediate death of all or most individuals of one or more species. This could be seismic activity, asteroid impact, extremely sudden climate change or a particularly savage disease.
yes unless a group of alot of people join in to save the animal
