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 ivory-billed woodpecker of Arkansas. Ivory-billed Woodpeckers, unique to Arkansas, used extensive stands of large trees and often foraged in areas where many trees had been recently killed by flooding, fire, and other disturbances.
