Animal Endangerment Map

More and more animals are being classified as critically endangered as climate change worsens, but do you know which country has experienced the most significant population decline over the past ten years? Animal Endangerment Map charts the number of reported extinct, endangered and vulnerable species in each country to reveal where in the world is most at risk of complete extinction.

Click on a country to see the species that are currently extinct, endangered and vulnerable, as well as a breakdown split by taxonomic class. Each country is shaded to reflect the current level of endangerment, highlighting the locations which have experienced the largest population decline over the past ten years and identifying the current most endangered species in select countries.

Did You Know?

At least one in five wild mammals in the UK faces a high risk of extinction within the next decade, including the Scottish Wildcat, with just 200 left in the wild. Other at-risk species include wild rabbits, the black rat and the turtle dove. The greatest risks these species face are habitat destruction, industrialisation and deforestation.
