From the spammily named BestCollegesOnline comes a pretty excellent interactive tool to check out the 100 most endangered species in the world--before they're gone. The list includes plants and fungi as well as animals, and you can sort the list by location, type, or habitat, in case you were particularly curious about creatures that live in the air above Oceania.
The most endangered species in the world may come as a surprise: it's nothing famous, like the giant panda or Amur leopard, but instead the forest coconut, native to Madagascar. It's estimated that there are fewer than ten adult forest coconut trees left, so, um, yeah, sounds pretty endangered.
Check out the rest of the interactive list here.
I thought the most endangered species was the honest man...at least it is according to Rush.
While we are tracking one species here and there individual towards endangerment, animals are not a species that live by themselves but in fact depend upon an extreme variety with the environment. When enough animals of the environment become endangered, a tipping point will happen and suddenly humans might find themselves crashing towards extinction!
But of course we humans are too smart to believe that could ever happen .......... right.
LOL, yup yup.
Looking for honesty, check out my blog. I was surprised that none of the endangered species were in the United States. It was a little difficult navigating to the website so keep that in mind in the future.
Wrong, there are multiple endangered species on this list in the United States. Including the Franklin Bee, located in Oregon and California, the Hibiscadelphus Woodii, a flowering tree in Hawaii, and the Dusky Gopher Frog located in Harrison County, Mississippi.
Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that are forever blowing through one’s mind.
100 down, 10 million to go... bwahahahahaaaa...
