Several species of tiger beetles are considered to be threatened or endangered, mainly as a result of habitat loss from human activities. As an example, the Puritan tiger beetle is limited to only a couple of locations in the Northeast United States, due to destruction of its fragile stream side habitat. Puritan tiger beetles were officially listed as a threatened species in 1990. In another case, the salt march tiger beetle is confined to remaining health salt marsh habitat in Nebraska; destruction of this ecosystem has led to the beetle’s total population dropping to only a few hundred individuals. The salt marsh tiger beetle was listed as endangered in 2005.
