Use digital conservation maps, websites and books to identify and list animal species that are at risk of extinction. Choose three animals from the list, including one each from the UK, a European region and North or South America. Find out what factors are endangering these species, such as human activity, habitat or climate change. Create a poster to inform others about the factors that are endangering the three species. Write captions that explain the importance of the species to the world as a whole.
There is an information sheet below about some animal species that are at risk of extinction. Use the websites listed below, as well as any others that you find, to explore more animals before choosing your final three for your poster.
We are WWF | WWF - The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) website has a species directory that lists the conservation status of each animal. Even before humans were a factor, endangerment and extinction were caused by natural factors, including overspecialisation, competition, sudden climatic change and catastrophic events like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
