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 black footed ferret of South Dakota. Black-footed ferrets are endangered because of diseases, prairie dog eradication programs and much of the prairie habitat on which the ferrets depend has been plowed for crops.
