Endangered or Threatened

Animals that are endangered are closer to extinction that those that are threatened. When they are endangered, it means that the number of animals in the wild have decreased by more than 50%, and they could go extinct in 20 years. The animals that are threatened or vulnerable have a greater chance for surviving, but are still losing their population at a rapid rate. They also have a lower probability of extinction at 10% within the next century. While extinction might be worse, any animal that is on the vulnerable list needs help to increase its numbers. Awareness is key.
