According to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund)
The WWF releases a new list every year and many of these animals will shift spaces on the list. There are many different factors that effect their place on the list such as annual habitat loss, success of captive breeding programs, fecundity of the animal, and population left in existence, just to name a few.
