Expand/Collapse Earth's Endangered Species | Photo Collection


This collection, featuring photographs of endangered species, may be used to support curriculum on endangered and at risk animals within the context of interdependent relationships and ecosystems for grades K – 8. The photos are of a variety of animal species that are considered endangered or at risk according to the conservation status of species classified by the World Wildlife Fund and the IUCN Red List.

Each of the photos has been individually selected from the prestigious collections of Getty Images for use by PBS LearningMedia teachers and students. Animals can be seen in their habitats - both wild and manufactured through conservation efforts, and represent animal species that are classified by the following risk levels: critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, and near threatened, as classified by the World Wildlife Fund.
