Endangered Animal Pictures

Selection of endangered animal pictures, photos and photo galleries, photographed by professional photographer Rolf Hicker.

These pictures are of some of the most rare creatures on the planet. Thousands of animals are threatened or endangered worldwide, and many more vulnerable to extinction. Species are disappearing from every continent. There is no time like the present to get to know these animals and they role they play in the global ecosystem.

The list is not discriminatory- land reptiles, marine mammals, birds, insects, and everything in between- the overwhelming cause of animal population decline is human intervention.

The New Zealand Kaka bird is a red parrot that lives on the North and South Islands. The National Wildlife Center is breeding these birds in captivity to reintroduce them to the wild.

Other animals are not so lucky. Fin whales, humpback whales, and sperm whales, to list a few photographed here, are at the mercy of ocean pollutants. These gentle giants may one day be gone from our oceans for good. ...More information below photos...

A world away, on the dryer continent of Africa, a picture of mating African Elephants is reason to hope that these animals, indeed all endangered animals, can make a comeback.

This category is dedicated to pictures of some of the endangered animals of the world.

There are many species that have found themselves on the endangered animals list, with many reasons for their decline, but the most prominent being human intervention causing loss of habitat.

As the list of pictures in this category grows, I hope that the protection of endangered animals continues, so future generations can experience more than pictures of these unique and beautiful creatures that roam the earth.

Please make sure to visit our picture gallery pictures of animals with many other interesting and cute animals.
