Endangered animals are plants and animals that exist in small numbers that may be lost forever if we do not take quick action to stop their decline. This blog will provide a list of endangered species that live in each of the five oceans. Saving endangered species is critical to marine ecology. If a plant or animal becomes extinct, it could affect the survival of another organism. This could aid in disruption of a an ecosystem. Loss of a species could also potentially mean the loss of a cure for cancer or a new antibiotic drug. Each living plant or animal is critical to the environment in which they live in. Thus, endangered species should be protected and awareness about these organisms should be increased as well.
