Almost all the world’s most iconic species are threatened by extinction. Tigers, elephants, lions, panda and polar bears, zebras, sharks, whales, eagles, turtles and more are effected by deforestation, poaching, human impact on the environment and the black market trade in wildlife. Here’s a photo collection of the world’s most endangered species.

Today is Earth Day, a time where citizens can engage their love of the planet with making a difference for the environment: by recycling, conserving energy and raising awareness for climate change.
This year, more than 192 countries participated in the Earth Day Network’s global “Face of Climate Change” by uploading a portrait picture to create a global mosiac. You can participate in the Face of Climate Change mosiac here.
Earth Day is also about raising awareness about the issues affecting all species, with some participants choosing to eat meat-free, participate in charity runs, front beach clean-ups and get active in World Week for Animals in Laboratories.
Here’s a tweet that reflects those principals of Earth Day. Join in:
