A Look at America’s Endangered Species (VIDEO)

“At least 100 species go extinct every day.” 

That’s how this amazing video by National Geographic photographer, Joel Sartore, begins. And there’s no better way to grab someone’s attention. 

The video — a companion to Sartore’s book, Rare: Portraits of America’s Endangered Species will give you a brand new appreciation for what we stand to lose if changes aren’t made immediately.

I try to ensure that everything is just right so as to not affect negatively the environment and other children of the earth.

Save wildlife and animals before it's too late, and our planet, the environment, biodiversity...!

We are lucky enough to have and enjoy these beautiful animals. Let us make changes so our children, their children, and so on can also enjoy.

Let's make the changes necessary to keep these beauties around for eons and eons.

awww its sad that these cute creatures of Gods are dieing ever day and some people are to selfish to even relies it

This is sad but true. People don't really care if animals are no more. But when the animals die off we will follow. Humans must learn there is a balance that God made. Destory that balance and you seal you'r own fate. People will learn this too slow for the animals and ourselves.
