The Blue Duck (Whio) is only found in New Zealand. It is a nationally vulnerable species and faces a risk of becoming extinct. Whio are the only NZ duck that lives only in clean, fast flowing rivers and are well adapted to their environment. Their presence is an indicator of a river’s health. Stoats are the Whio’s number one predator. During the late Summer moult period whio are flightless, making them even more vulnerable to attacks. Whio feature on the NZ $10 note.

The Silky sifaka (Propithecus candidus) is a large lemur native to Madagascar.  This beautiful lemur is one of the world's rarest mammals with only several hundred left in the wild. The species is threatened by habitat destruction. Recently, however, educational programs in Madagascar show hope for better protection of this vulnerable species.(Source: digdaga, via beverleyshiller)

The polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species, with eight of the nineteen polar bear subpopulations in decline. For decades, large scale hunting raised international concern for the future of the species but populations rebounded after controls and quotas began to take effect.

It is estimated that there are less than 10,000 Sunda clouded leopards living in the wild, with a decreasing population.

Petition - Protect Lions From Cruel Trophy Hunting. between 1999 and 2008, 5,663 lions were trophy hunted and killed for sport, most by U.S. hunters.The debate is also revealing the lack of information available to the public on the state of this majestic species.
