This heartbreaking map shows where the most endangered animals in the world are

Matthew Speiser

Close to half of all living species on the Earth could disappear by the end of this century, and several recent studies suggest humans will be the cause.

Keeping that in mind, the folks at Signature African Safaris put together a map uisng data from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to show where in the world the most endangered animal species are located. The dark red regions denote the areas where the critically endangered animals reside, while the lighter shaded regions signify animals living in that area that are endangered. The box at the bottom right is a map key.
