Earth’s Endangered Creatures
It is a well-known and sad fact that many animal species are in danger of becoming extinct. The Earth’s Endangered Creatures website is a wonderful online resource to learn about the lives (and plight) of various endangered animals. One can browse species profiles by geographic region or species group (arachnids, birds, etc.), or one can search for a specific creature by either its common or scientific name. In addition, the “featured creature” page allows you to learn about critters you may not have stumbled upon yourself. A profile page exists for many species on the site, and these profile pages include information such as geographic distribution, size, and other facts about the animals. Many of the species information pages are current; however, some of the pages haven’t been updated recently. Finally, beyond providing information about various endangered species, the website also provides a long list of links to conservation organizations so that site visitors can find volunteer or donation opportunities.
