    There are over 9000 species of plants and animals that are native to the Galapagos Islands. I couldn’t find an exact number of endangered species because apparently ‘endangered species’ are further divided up into multiple categories.
    This fantastic site has a section for each type of animal and tells you how many species are in each category of ‘endangered-ness’.
