Most of us can relate to a love of animals. We’ve always had a favorite animal – or, a more recent trend, discovered our “spirit animal.”
But did you know that more than 23,000 animal species are identified as threatened with extinction, according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species? Animals that we know and love have populations that are rapidly decreasing, and many of them are losing their natural habitats. Even surprising species like bumblebees are now considered endangered.
