Cofrin Arboretum Center for Biodiversity
http://www.uwgb.edu/biodiversity/

This web site is an awesome place to go to look at endangered animals, plants and other living pieces of life. This site is a very good source of information for all species of living things. It has a chart of all animals with a scarce chance of existing. It shows and explains the diversity of animals and has a lot of links to extra pages for a better research. Produced at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, this quality site provides a great educational experience.

Endangered Specie.com: The Rarest Info Around
http://www.endangeredspecie.com/

I like this web site because it tells you what type of endangered species are in the USA. It will tell you how you can help endangered species and gives information about specific animals. The only problem with the site is that only endangered animals found in the United States are featured on this site. There are, however, cool games on the site which make up for the short fall. The games are found in the Kids Corner and are fun and helpful in learning how to help endangered wildlife.

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
http://www.redlist.org/

This website is the perfect resource if you need or want to find any endangered or threatened animal in the world. You just click on 'search', type in regions in which you want and press 'search' again. It also is a place in the website where you can find the animal you want and find links that will lead you right to a website given information about the animal you want to explore. It's easy to read and it makes it a fun learning experience. It's the website of all websites for the world of endangered animals.

White Tiger
http://nm.essortment.com/aboutbengalwhi_pnz.htm

This is a great place to find information on the White Tiger in Asia. It is also a good site to see animals that will soon be extinct! The features on this web page are easy to use and provide helpful information. The person who wrote this website was concerned about the welfare of the white tiger and obviously knew what they were talking about. This website made me more concerned about the White Tiger of Asia. What can you do for the White Tiger and other animals that may become extinct?

Wisconsin's Environment: 1975-1990
http://www.pepps.fsu.edu/segip/states/wisconsin/fishwld.html

This site summarizes the past 25 years for Wisconsin's Fish and Wildlife. I think it is a good site because they tell you about all the things that are endangered in Wisconsin from 1970 to 1995. There are two graphs about deer and eagle population in the state over 25 years. They tell you about the animals that had more babies in the last years. It is easy to read and it is short but still full of information.
