    In order for an animal or plant to be placed on the endangered species list, a long process must first ensue. It’s not so dependent on a magic number as it is a series of criteria, which include the following:

    -the present or threatened destruction, modification, or curtailment of its habitat or range;
    -overutilization for commercial, recreational, scientific, or educational purposes;
    -disease or predation;
    -the inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms;
    -the natural or manmade factors affecting its survival.

    Rather than magic numbers, it’s all a matter of meticulous, weighted criteria as projected by the field’s authority, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) and its Red List.
