    An ecosystem is a system of organisms living in an area that all depend upon one another for their growth and survival.  If a species is to be removed from its ecosystem due to going extinct is affects all other organisms of the ecosystem.  The animal it hunts might grow in number due to loss of a predator (which effects other prey and predators), the animal that preys on the species will lose its food source and might itself go extinct, the plant that the species eats might grow wild and destroy an area due to its growing properties, etc. There are many ways an endangered species going extinct could affect the ecosystem but that is only if it goes extinct. Even losing its numbers significantly can have some of the same effects.
