Endangered Plants

About this Page

  • A species is is endangered when it is facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild in the immediate future. An animal is considered to be Endangered if it is likely to become extinct due to problems throughout all or a significant portion of its range. Some animals have such low population numbers or their habitats have been so reduced or altered that they are unlikely to survive without considerable assistance. Endangered Species are protected by both state and federal laws. It is not legal to have in your possession any part of such an animal, living or dead, without special permission. Some Endangered Species are of such international importance that they are listed in CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
