Did you know that up to 35,000 species are endangered in the US alone?

Worldwide, that’s a sobering 30 to 50 percent of all species that could disappear by 2050.

Scary, isn’t it?

Perhaps scariest of all, common animals that you know and love are in danger right now.

Here are 5 surprising animals that are at risk of disappearing and what you can do to help!

1. Sperm Whales 

Whales are endangered

Sperm whales are a vulnerable species due to a number of factors, including: tanker traffic, fishing and harvesting of their food supply, and ocean pollution.

2. Peacocks

Habitat loss due to widespread clearance of land for palm oil production is putting peacocks at risk.

Hunting with snares is also a main concern for the livelihood of this specie.

3. Hummingbirds

Hummingbirds are endangered

Originating from South America, these majestic birds are at risk due to habitat loss resulting from severe deforestation.

4. Squirrels

Most species of squirrels are thriving. However, the California native “San Joaquin Antelope Ground Squirrel” is endangered due to agricultural development and urbanization.

5. Sea lions

Sea lions are endangered

These beautiful creatures are presently near threatened on the West Coast of America due to being caught in net fisheries and deliberate killing by fishermen.

How to help

Go vegan

Habitat loss due to farming and animal exploitation is the number one reason species are going extinct. By switching to a plant-based diet you can reduce this negative impact!
