The Most Endangered Species In The US

In late September, Russell McLendon of Mother Nature Network posted an incredible infographic highlighting the dire situation of many endangered species of wildlife within the United States alone. The grim and depressing viral image also appears to indicate in this is the state of much of our wildlife in the USA, the picture is likely very bleak for other animals in the rest of the world. Not only that, but plants are endangered as well. The author uses facts and numerical data to support his claims and show the gravity of the situation.

Dubbed as a time period known as  the world’s Sixth Mass Extinction, McLendon makes it clear that this phenomenon is not normal, that we as human beings have the power to do something about this, and that there is plenty of space to ensure we peacefully coexist with other animals. The USA alone ranks 2nd worldwide in endangered species by country. The first country listed is Ecuador.

Here is the Infographic:
