There is a Federal endangered species list and states can have their own endangered species list. If an animal is on the Federal list it is federally protected, but if it is only on a state list it is not Federally protected.
The Endangered species list is categorized by state here: http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/StateListing.do?state=all. It can also be found by country here: http://www.earthsendangered.com/full_list.asp
Each state should have its own endangered species list, such as Illinois, whose link is provided below.
The IUCN Red List provides one of the convenient and informative lists I know. Their list of endangered species is categorized by those species whom are closest to extinction and whom we should be most concerned about to the species that are furthest from extinction, but still considered threatened.
It also provides information on how the animals are threatened and where they reside.
