As part of the Country Study Project, students are to research a threatened or
endangered animal from their country and create a poster to display what they
The first step is to find a threatened or endangered animal
from your country. One good place to look is Animal Info's Index of Countries,
which can be found here.
Click on the country name, and it will give you a list of endangered animals
from that country. Below are some other web resources that you can use.
Sites to Help Find an Endangered
- Animal Info - Click
on "Country Index" to search for endagered species in your country.
Some of the organisms listed may also have some info about
- Earth's Endangered Creatures - Search by country or region, filter by type of animal
(bird, fish, plants, etc.).
- ICUN Red List - Click
on "Search". At the next screen, go down into the red area and set two items:
Red List Categories to EN (endangered) or
CR (critially endangered), and Select One or More
Countries to your country. Then run the search.
Sites for Finding Info on
Your Chosen Species
- Arkive - You will need
to search based on the name of your animal, but has pictures, maps, video, etc.
- Encyclopedia of Life - A bit technical, but seems to have good info and some nice pictures.
Facts Sheet - Has some info - animals are listed by continent, not country.
Be careful - some are threatened, not endangered. This site would be more
useful if you have already chosen your animal.
- World Wildlife Fund - Try clicking on the "Species" tab on the top, then selecting "Endangered Species".
