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

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 population that a recovery is considered highly unlikely even under excellent conditions..
a extinct animal that has no animals left in its species and a endangered animal has few animals left in its species
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 when 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.
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.
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. Anim…als are usually poached for their parts. It could be for meat, fur, skin, horns, feathers, etc.
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 th…ey have been poached and eaten. This can be why they are extinct. 1. Endangered: Not very many left 2. Extinct: None left
Extinct- died out Endangered- on the verge of dying out easily answered by a young person!
Extinct species have none living on the earth Endangered species are in danger of becoming extinct
What is the difference between an animal species that is threatened one that is extinct and one that is endangered?
Threatened means they could become endangered, endangered means they could become extinct.
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.
they are exstint
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 the…re are no survivors.
