Thousands of endangered species around the world are on the brink of extinction. And human beings are biodiversity’s greatest enemy: we’re responsible for the endangered status of 99% of at-risk species.
A handful of conservationists have been hard at work changing the story for a number of endangered populations. But in the U.S., hundreds of species are still fighting a losing battle for survival.
NetCredit created a series of posters celebrating the wildlife that each State could lose forever. The image above is the humpback whale of Massachusetts. The Humpback Whale is classified as Endangered species both in Massachusetts and under the Federal Endangered Species Act. About 10,000 Humpback Whales remain today, with 5,700 frequenting the wester North Atlantic.
