In the U.S., species are termed “threatened” when they are likely to become endangered in all or most of their territories in the near future; as opposed to “endangered”, meaning species are likely to extinct in the near future. Species that are threatened can be protected by state wildlife agencies, but not on the federal level. When they become endangered, they are eligible for federal protection under the Endangered Species Act.
Species that are not on the endangered species list but are still considered “threatened” are less protected, but efforts are still made to try to keep them from becoming endangered.
