An endangered species is in immediate danger of extinction, or of disappearing from the earth forever. A threatened species will like become endangered if steps are not taken to protect it. The mountain gorilla is one of thousands of species around the world at risk of becoming extinct and in desperate need of protection. In the United States alone, more than 1,200 wildlife, fish, and plant species are considered threatened or endangered

While species have evolved and disappeared throughout time, experts warn that today’s rate of extinction is alarmingly high. Scientists say that it is natural to lose one species every 100 years. Yet North America has lost more than 500 species since 1620. The National Wildlife Federation, an organization that encourages Americans to protect wildlife, estimates that today nearly twenty plant and animal species around the world are lost every hour

A habitat is the place where an animal or plant lives that includes essential things for its survival—food, water, shelter, and space. Habitat loss is the main reason a species can become endangered or threatened. Other causes include the over-killing and over-collection of animals and plants for food or trade, the introduction of nonnative plants and animals to environments, pollution, and disease. Humans are changing the air, water, and land faster than species can adapt. When the changes are too severe, they cannot survive

Why is it important to protect endangered and threatened species? The U.S. Congress answered this question in the Endangered Species Act of 1973, which helps protect threatened and endangered animals and plants. The introduction of the law states that endangered and threatened species “are of esthetic, ecological, educational, historical, recreational, and scientific value to the Nation and its people.” More than 1,200 U.S. species and more than 500 international ones—including Africa’s mountain gorilla—are protected under the Act. The Endangered Species Act has been 99 percent effective in preventing the extinction of listed species. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) includes thousands of other endangered and vulnerable species from around the world and identifies their threats on its annual Red List of Threatened Species

Plants and animals are part of ecosystems—communities of living things and their environments that interact and are linked together. Losing one species can greatly disturb the balance within an ecosystem and trigger the loss of several other species. According to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, a government agency that works to save America’s plant and animal species from extinction, the loss of one plant species can cause the disappearance of up to thirty others. About 40 percent of today’s medicines, used to treat illnesses from heart disease to cancer, comes from plants or animals. If the mountain gorillas’ habitat in the Virunga Mountains is destroyed, countless other animal and plant life will also lose their home and be at risk of dying out

Extinction leads to a decline in biodiversity—the number and variety of different living things and the ecosystems that they form. It results in less variety of life on Earth, leaving humans with fewer resources, and even harming the air that we breathe, water that we drink, and soil that we need to grow nutritious food

By raising awareness of the threats to the world’s animals and plants, and by starting projects to protect them, you and your students will help preserve Earth’s biodiversity
