Yes, there are hundreds and hundreds, maybe even thousands of animals in Ecuador that are threatened or endangered. This is mainly because of the rainforests in Ecuador that are being cut down and destroyed at alarming rates, and the rainforests have such great biodiversity. All in all, the Ecuadorian rainforeset has about “1,640 species of birds, 4,500 species of butterflies, 345 species of reptiles, 447 amphibian species, 258 species of mammals, and more than 16,000 species of plants (with 4,000 species of orchids alone)” (http://www.tropical-rainforest-animals.com/Ecuador-Rainforest.html). Animals in the rainforest can go extinct every day, and many animals haven’t even been discovered yet.
