    In March, 1967 the first list of endangered species was issued under the act. It included 14 mammals, 36 birds, 6 reptiles and amphibians and 22 fish. At the time the fish and wildlife service was limited to vertebrates and so no invertebrates or plants were on the original list. The list can be found here

    It includes the Grizzly Bear, Black footed ferret, Florida Manatee, California Condor, Ivory Billed Woodpecker, American Alligator, Black Toad, And the Devils Hole Pupfish to name a few famous endangered species.
