What is an endangered species?
WWF doesn't determine which species are considered endangered. The IUCN (the World Conservation Union) is the organization that WWF and other conservation groups, government agencies, scientists and academics look to for that information. IUCN brings together the world's leading scientists, including those from WWF, to assess the conservation status of species, subspecies, varieties and subpopulations on a global scale, highlighting species threatened with extinction and promoting their conservation.

||I'm relaxed and a good listener. I enjoy listening because I learn a great deal about others. People issues are the most important to me since what we do affects everything in life. I have a positive attitude although I am moody at times. I cherish my family and friends. I don't follow the crowd. I think for myself and say what needs to be said but I choose my words.
