This infographic outlines areas of wildlife preservation where we have been successful, battles we are losing, and battles we have already lost. For example the American Bison was hunted down to 750 in 1890, but thanks to preservation efforts this has increased to 350,000.
Unfortunately there are other battles we are losing, such as with the beautiful Amur Leopard. There are now only 30 left, and we face a difficult fight to save them. The important thing is that there is still time to make a difference and it’s not too late.

It is not uncommon nowadays to hear about one or more animals facing the verge of extinction. For as long as the world has been habitable, species have come and gone but nowadays, due to poaching, deforestation and other issues associated with greed and monetary gain, we are now facing a rate of extinction that hasn’t been seen since that of the dinosaurs. Inis Environmental Services created this infographic on some of the endangered animals to raise awareness in people and maybe we can help to make a difference by sharing it.
Follow Inis Environmental Services on:
We have lost 97% of all wild tigers in a bit over 100 years. Instead of 100,000, as few as 3000 live in the wild today, last year it was 3200! A number of Tiger species have already been extinct.
Tigers may be one of the most admired animals, but they are also vulnerable to extinction.
