Pandas What's an endangered animal?
A species is called endangered when there are so few of its kind left that it could disappear from the planet altogether and become 'extinct.'

Extinct means an animal hasn't been seen in the wild for 50 years.

In total 762 plant and animal species are now recorded as extinct.
