how many endangered species are there?



  1. 0 Votes

    As of 2002, there were at least 11,000 species listed on the World Conservation Union’s Red List of endangered species.  Due to climate change, fishing/poaching, and continued habitat destruction, the number has likely greatly increased over the past 8 years.  There may also be several unique species (in areas such as the Amazon) that have never been formally identified by researchers, but may have since gone extinct before ever being classified.

      Thank you, because I just went on this site that said there were about 2,000. Obviously it wasn’t updated recently. But I would like a more modern answer, as in how many there are right now. I appreciate your input!
