How Many Endangered Species Can You Name?

Since it is never too late to celebrate National Endangered Species Day (May 21) and support #EndangeredSpecies , here is a great guide to some ‘Cool Critters’ on the endangered list.

Thanks to this law, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service have been protecting and working to recover threatened and endangered wildlife species and their habitats ever since.

Here are 10 of the incredible animals protected by the Endangered Species Act:
