What is the difference between endangered animals vs threatened animals vs extinct animals?
Threatened means that the animal is vulnerable to extinction and the population of the animal is declining. (ex: Certain species of whale population are being threatened.) Endangered means that the animal will soon be extinct if nothing is done about it. Some endangered animals are being bred in captivity until their numbers increase enough to be released back in the wild. (ex: Bald Eagles are an endangered species of bird. Pandas are an endangered species of bear.) Extinct means that the animal has completely died out and there aren't any left of this species. (ex: Dinosaurs are an extinct species of reptile. Dodo is an extinct bird.) Here's a visual: Threatened-------------> Endangered---------------> Extinct

This answer has been fully researched, and is as complete and detailed as is practical in this format. If you'd prefer a shorter, more condensed version, please see the question listed below this answer in the "Related Question" field above the "Related Links". The answer has been done in concert …with this answer, and follows the progression of this information, if you find you need more details.. An Endangered Species is any species, plant or animal that is "in danger" of dying out, or suffering population reductions to such an extent that the species can no longer recover and faces extinction in the wild. According to the "International Union for Conservation of Nature" (IUCN) Red List, a species would be considered endangered when the best available evidence indicates that the species is facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild. Extinction is usually referring to the species in the wild. Although there may be some specimens in zoos, or controlled environments, if there is really no reasonable doubt that the last specimen has died, then after surveys have been conducted, over the lifespan of the species, in its native, or known habitat, then a species should be declared extinct. But this is a long drawn out process, taking at least the length of the average lifespan of the species suspected of extinction. There are many different things that cause species to be endangered, and/or become extinct. Depending on the individual species involved, there can be specific causes directly related to that species. Also much information may depend on the adaptability, and what type of species. But generally speaking, there are certainly some things that can be applied to almost all species on average, across the board. Most involve humans to some degree, and are linked to their behavior, or their lack of proper behavior.. Commercial hunting or fishing without regulations or restrictions can, and has driven species to extinction. Even when it is apparent that the species population can no longer support extensive hunting or fishing losses, many times the immediate profits seem more important than the long range health, or even just sustaining the life of the population of the very animals which are making those profits possible. They "harvested" the Passenger Pigeon until its extinction in 1900. The term is used in the Fishing and Birding Industries today, but to call it "harvesting" a wild animal, is putting a pretty picture on it. To harvest something, when you have no hand in the seeding of it, the nurturing, or the growing of it, is not really harvesting. Then when a species has been recognized as in need of protection, and as such is granted a protective status, many will ignore those regulations and laws. Sometimes even whole countries will ignore the rulings and laws passed to protect species, and continue to hunt or fish the protected animals. This places an unbearable strain on the animals, unnecessary tension between countries, and makes the task of catching the illegal black market sale of protected animals, and the products produced with them nearly impossible. Poaching is widespread, again with profits being considered before the health of a protected population of animals. These are animals, that are making the profits for the poachers. The poacher is ignoring the fact that their daily efforts at killing, and/or capturing the protected species could be the very actions that drive the animal's population past the point of no return. When the population collapses, they put themselves out of a job. This includes the animals that are taken alive, when tiny babies, so they will bond with their human owner. While others are captured in mass, no matter their age, or health, to be sold as exotic pets. The number that die in transport is staggering, but then, they do it all for the profit, and to meet a demand. The poacher does not care about the species, or any parasites, diseases, or viruses it might spread to other people, or animals it may come in contact with. The poacher's only concern is the money they can make " literally" off the animal, in whatever way brings them the most profit. In many areas of the world poachers are willing to kill guards posted to protect lands and the species that inhabit them, just for the chance to hunt the animals. This ability to look without seeing the impact of one's actions seems especially strong in those who poach animals.. The buyers demand these black market items. Some of the poached items are pelts, organs and bones, which are often used in Traditional Chinese Medicines ; the Rhino's horn, often mistakenly thought to be an aphrodisiac in the powdered form, but really used in Traditional Chinese Medicine also, as a fever reducer and prescribed for convulsions; the Elephants' tusks, and Gorilla paws (hands). These are other examples of what will be taken for profit, and set for sale in small back street markets. Many things bought from these types of markets are merely trophies. The person buying these products is no better than the poacher, who sneaks through the woods or jungle, trapping or shooting a species that is protected. The buyers need to be held in same contempt as the poacher is! Without the demand, the value of these items would not make the risk of hunting and selling endangered species profitable, and the poacher might not be hunting the animal in the first place. The "Traditional Chinese Medicines" originated thousands of years ago, and is still in use today in much the same form. It is still using now endangered species as ingredients, rather than trying more modern approaches to replace these ingredients, and continues to fuel the illegal sale of endangered species from all over the world. This inaction, and sometimes ignorance of the ramifications, just continues to drive endangered species closer to extinction.. Then you have the loss of habitat . This can be caused by the loss of complete access to all of their habitat, due to the fragmentation of the land, or water; isolation or disruption of breeding grounds; or altered migration routes; and/or the habitat itself is changed to such a degree that it can no longer support the species, with the necessary food sources, water supplies, and shelter requirements. Small isolated species groups become increasingly stressed due to the lack of biodiversity, making the chances of a long term growth and birth rate increase highly unlikely. Changing land for whatever purpose, such as logging, mining, urbanization, roads or rails; changes to rivers; and draining wet lands to build up and on, all effect the animals living in the surrounding or general area, so the entire ecosystems need to be taken into account before these actions are taken. But most often, especially in countries on the fast track of growth, this is done without consideration for the overall impact to the species of the area. Migrating species and those with specific breeding grounds, or other specialized habitats need to be considered carefully before starting the work. Major changes can create havoc in breeding cycles, disrupt the migration routes, or end whole life patterns, and may start the species down the path of endangerment and extinction.. Also, with all the growth of humans and their encroachment into animals' habitat , comes the trash and debris that seems to be a constant around humans. Something that seems perfectly harmless to us, can be deadly to a hungry, or curious animal. Just touching some of the by-products we leave can be dangerous to different species, but most often the damage is from eating something that is poisonous, or being exposed long-term, to something that we use daily. That can destroy their finely balanced systems, injuring them, and have long ranging effects on them and their offspring. Just the normal curious, playful nature of many species can get them into trouble. Finding something they are not familiar with, and investigating, or playing with it, they can become entangled, trapped, or get it snagged on their body, and not be able to get it off. This can strangle a limb or their life off. Or, they simply see something that looks, and behaves like food, so they grab it, and gobble, only what they have eaten wasn't food. Their intestines become blocked, and their life span will be shortened. The shortened lifespan may mean that species couldn't produce its offspring, and that decreases the number of young produced for the next generation. Thus a small piece of trash, that seemed of no importance, may help a species step on the first rung of the endangered species ladder.. All the pollutants that are part and parcel of our industrial age, are disposed of in all manner of ways, with some in the correct, and approved methods. While we hope most people use the correct and legal methods, we know that others are just handling them in the easiest, and quickest way, and these pollutants will end up in the soil, water, air, plants, and eventually in small animals, only to work their way up through the food chain. This will apply pressure on all species it touches along the way, and create another obstacle for the healthy growth of a species population. Many times the most profound effect of these chemicals can be seen in the top of the food chain, the hunters, or predators. The predators are exposed to all the different kind of toxins from all the different animals they prey upon. Each carrying traces of the chemicals it was exposed to, and that trace accumulates in the upper levels of the food chain, and certainly in the top predator, increasing their exposure enormously. All these toxic chemicals, oil spills, acid rain, and other man made pollutants can kill off plants, algae, insects, etc, causing a domino effect. This is the food or water supply of any number of species, where some may already be under strain from other factors, and with the introduction of the pollutants another harmful factor has been added to their environment. This factor can be passed down through generations of a species, through habitats to different species, and even leach into new ecosystems. Sometimes, it is estimated that it will take decades for an area to recover from an accident, or intentional dumping, even after an official clean up.. To add to the list of overall causes of endangerment to species is the introduction of uninvited species. These party crashers of the critter world are the nonnative species , an exotic species released either intentionally, to help control some "pest" only to become a bigger pest themselves or accidentally. The escapees from pet shops, or many times, those released to avoid detection of trafficking in protected animals, and from personal homes once the animal becomes too big, or is more trouble than expected. These "foreign species", once established in an area, can be invasive, and replace, undercut, and push out the native plants, and animals. The native species can be completely defenseless against the invading species and any hijacking diseases, or parasites. The native species can suffer great losses to their populations. If the exotic species flourishes, it will probably have no natural enemies or predators in the new ecosystem to help control its growth, allowing it free rein to overrun the species that naturally inhabit that range. They can have long ranging effects, replacing food sources for other species, and spreading through many ecosystems, destroying the balance that many species rely on for breeding and survival. So, an uninvited guest can ruin habitats, and put many other species at risk just by showing up.. Also, you can't leave out diseases, not only exposure to new diseases from exotic invasive species, but mutated viruses, and diseases . The constant growth, and mutation of some diseases has even stunned some of the doctors working with the primates, and other mammals. This seems to be a field that is growing by leaps and bounds. As with the rabies virus and distemper, at one time, thought to be some what under control, but now out of control in parts of Africa . It is infecting wild carnivores because of exposure to domestic animals, coming into contact with the wild carnivores, and other wild animals, that have no natural protection or immunity. Include, the transference of viruses, and other infectious disease between humans, and wild animals. As humans move ever closer to wild species, and into their habitats, the exposure increases, and with that the risk.. Probably the most debated, and widely contested cause of endangerment for species is climate change . Whatever your beliefs about the causes or the extent of this event, it needs to be listed as one of the overall factors that may have widespread and far-reaching effects on species. The US Fish & Wildlife Service Endangered Species List listed the Polar Bear as "threatened" due to the resulting effects of "climate change" on their habitat, the sea ice. According to IUCN Red List, who have already completed studies regarding the effects of "climate change" on Amphibians, Corals, and Birds, the reported evidence indicates that climate change will impact all species, especially those with "certain traits" (IUCN has identified five groups of traits believed to increase susceptibility to climate change) throughout the coming century. This group of researchers has developed criteria for the classification of "Climate Change Susceptible", and are continuing to expand their studies to other species threatened and non threatened to determine which species are most likely to be adversely impacted by climate change, and what, if any, actions might be taken to ensure their survival, and preservation in the years to come.. Some animals are already such specialized species , that they are at a disadvantage, right out of the gate. The fact that they must have specific circumstances either for normal life, to trigger breeding, or for some other growth stage of life, gives them a risk that many others don't have to contend with. These finely balanced needs, if not met, can cause populations to suffer a collapse. While others clearly have a broader spectrum of habitats, climates, and food sources within their acceptable ranges to adjust within, giving them a more flexible chance for survival. So, the nature of the species also makes a difference in the fate of the animal itself.. All of these factors combine in one way or another to determine which species' populations will be stressed beyond the breaking point and if that population will suffer extinction or recover and flourish. All of these things play a role in the life of a species' population.. With the variety of species in the world today, and the working estimate between 8 to 14 million species planet wide just a portion, around 1.8 million have been "described" or studied. Only 2.5% of the described species has been assessed for their threatened status by the IUCN Red List. The debates rage on about the numbers of species on the planet, the causes of declining populations, and who or what is the root of those causes, for the few species we are aware of. The world spins as the debates do, and time passes quickly. The debate needs to be raging about what we can do to stop species endangerment, and extinction, or about reversing any long term damage done by human activity, and methods to discover other species, record them so they too, can be tracked and protected if need be. We might learn from them, and their circumstances, ways to better protect other species, and maybe ourselves. (MORE)
Endangered does not mean extinct. . Extinct means all specimens of that species are gone. . Endangered means that the species is in danger ofextinction.

Well... What do you mean, by how do you download animator versus animation? You mean the Media type one or the Flash game on the web one? Becouse there's no such thing as the actual software. If you actually believed that, which from the way you speciffied the question, i think you did, i must a…sk you, how old are u? Oh and talking about the way you speciffied the question, in which way is the game actually is Rock band Video Game? Well... There's flash game's: Animator vs Animation II and Animator vs Animation I I don't see reason why you would want to download the flash file trough... You can play it right from the page. Unless you want to store it in some other device, or usb stick or whatever. Or if you just want to play the game by not connecting to the internet. You can download them from the page using firefox, (or some other software), and then later drag the files into the browser, or play them using GOM player for example. In my opinnion gom player is good, it can play almost any video or audio or flash you want... Well, atleast i think soo... Also, i think that it can play some other formats too... But that's only my opinion, use any software you want. If you have meant, how to download the movie, from youtube, for expample, use one of these sites, that you enter the URL to the page of youtube, and it downloads the file for you. Once you store it in your HD (hard drive) you can play it with your selected player. Also you can use the firefox browser too, but it might take some time, to figure out, which one of these files is the actual SWF (i think it was SWF format (the video on the youtube) (MORE)

According to which reporting organization, and their list, you will receive different numbers. These are some numbers from one of the main organizations that research and report on endangered and threatened species. The Endangered Species List currently shows in the U.S. 612 animal species listed,… along with 746 plant species. Out of these 1128 species have approved recovery plans according to the list. Also, 520 of these species have U.S. designated critical habitat. (MORE)
Animal species that are threatened are on the way to becoming endangered. Endangered animals are on their way to becoming extinct.
Endangered Species are ones that have a very small population and that population is at a greater risk of becoming extinct. Many species that become extinct never make to the endangered species list.. Extinct Species are ones that are either known (documented) to be extinct or are so few in populat…ion that a recovery is considered highly unlikely even under excellent conditions.. (MORE)

extinction is the death of every member of a species or group of taxa (A taxon plural: taxa ) or taxonomic unit is a name designating an organism or a group of organisms). A species becomes extinct when the last existing member of that species dies. Extinction therefore becomes a certainty whe…n there are no surviving individuals that are able to reproduce and create a new generation.A species may become functionally extinct when only a handful of individuals survive, which are unable to reproduce due to poor health, age, sparse distribution over a large range, a lack of individuals of both sexes(in sexually reproducing species),or other reason. An endangered species is a population of an organism which is at risk of becoming extinct because it is either few in numbers, or threatened by changing environmental or predation parameters. (MORE)

Because of many reasons. 1. Because other animals (or humans) are competing for it's food. 2. Because humans are hunting for it's body parts. If this keeps continuing and people don't do anything to protect the species, animals (and plants) will eventually become extinct. 3. its habitat is b…eing destroyed. Endangered animals become extinct because they are in danger of dying out and sometimes they do. They can lose their habitat and people have hunted animals to extinction because they are greedy and want them as a trophy. (MORE)
The difference is an endangered animals only has about a couple thousand of its kind left. Threatened animals still has a fair amount left. And extinct animals are all gone.
An extinct animal means there are none left; they all have died. Endangered means there is a small amount left of that animal and they are about to become extinct. Threatened means they are about to become endangered.
I tried to find some, but the only thing I can say is that there are secrets that you can unlock. If I were you I would try animator vs animation SE it is much more fun. ADD-ON BY TRUTHPOSTER: Yes, it does have cheats. You can play the hacked version at Arcade Pre-Hacks.com
You have to buy the software and then you draw a person and go to the top bar and make him alive.
Well extinct means this animal species has died out, while endangered means there are very few of this animal species left and they will soon be extinct if not helped. Animals are usually poached for their parts. It could be for meat, fur, skin, horns, feathers, etc.
No. Animator Vs Animation was Only a Video.. There are no games about it. . yes there is a game made about it its on http:/www.addictinggames.com/anivanigame.html . and more
You can't shoot fire in ordinary Animation vs Animator, but you can in Special Edition by pressing "E".
extinct means that there are no more of that animal at all like dinosaurs. endangered means that the animal is about to become extinct and there is only a small amount of them still alive.
endangered means that there are not many left in the wild and extinct means that there are none left in the world. They animals skin has been used for making things with or they have been poached and eaten. This can be why they are extinct. 1. Endangered: Not very many left 2. Extinct: None left
Endangered animals are animals that are almost extinct. Therefore, animals that are not endangered are not almost extinct.
Their are three main reasons: 1- Many animals are being hunted, killed, or sold for their meat, fur, and sometimes just for sport. 2- Large numbers of animals and plants species are being consumed at a faster rate than the time needed to produce new species. 3-Dirtying of the air, water and soil by… humans, which harms all living things.

Extinct- died out Endangered- on the verge of dying out easily answered by a young person!
The answer would seem to be, extinct animals are gone forever, so they cannot be considered endangered. However. Sometimes, animals thought to be extinct can be found existing in isolated areas of their former habitat. Two examples are the ivory billed woodpecker and Bachman's warbler of the sou…thern U.S. Both species were declared extinct, then strong video and eyewitness accounts by qualified observers show they are still with us.

the extinct animals are in heaven and the endangered animals are all over the world in the wild and in zoos.
Endangered animals are animals where there are so few survivingthat they are at risk of dying out entirely. . Common animals are animals that survive in such big numbers thatthey aren't at risk of disappearing.
The lion, tiger, leopard, and margay are all endangered animals along with the polar bear, the gray wolf, and the beluga whale. Some extinct animals are the Japanese wolf, and the Caspian tiger.
because humans are destroying their ecosystems and the animals are eating stuff that has been tainted by our chemicals.
Yes. It's a flash animation about a flash animator drawing a stick figure in Macromedia Flash, converting it to a symbol naming it The Chosen One. It comes to life and causing chaos in the program and on the desktop.
When every last one of that species dies and there is no more left to breed
Yes, You can. Get Dreamweaver and put the game on the page. Save it as HTML and set is as your desktop.
Extinct species have none living on the earth Endangered species are in danger of becoming extinct
extinct means there are no species alive today eg a dodo, endangered means is in danger of dying out eg a panda. i suggest you look in a dictionary for a more accurate answer :)
well to be threatened means that smeone or something is being..........UGH IM BORED I DONT WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/(LETS SURF!!)
Endangered means there are still some of that animal but not many extinct means they are all gone
Anime is the animation, manga is the comics, and chibi is the over-exaggerated, super cute version.
an endangered animal is an animal that is almost extinct. a common animal is an animal that has lot's of its kind alive.
1. Endangered animal means there are not many left. 2. Extinct means that are completely wiped out. There are none left in the whole universe.
An endangered animal is a animal that is going to be extinct (never going to live again) unless its situation improves. An extinct animal is a animal that is dead and there are no more of its species to carry on.

Because we are using up resourses too quickly and people are over hunting/fishing. That is basically the reason. If we stoped cuting down forrests it wouldn't be such a big deal.
If there extinct there is none of them left if they are endangered there is a small or unstable population of them left
An extinctt animal cannot be endangered. Do you mean how an endangered animal becomes extinct? Endangered animals become extinct by various reasons. It depends what animal it is. Most animals are killed by humans, or habitats destroyed. E.G: Tigers have become endangered because of poaching, and if …this continuses, then they will become extinct. Animals become extinct becuase of a particular reason, which makes them endangered, then if carried on, extinct. (MORE)
There is a big difference between endangered and extinct species. Endangered species are not yet extinct but have very low numbers. Extinct species are completely gone and there are no survivors.
Many animals are endangered because of human activity. There areactually trillions of species. 1% of all the animals are extinctand 99% are endangered. The examples of extinct animals aredinosaurs, dodo birds, sabe-tooth tiger, woolly mammoths, etc. Thepercentage of extinct animals are very slowly i…ncreasing because ofhunting, habitat destruction, global warming, or loss of food.
