7 Endangered Animals I Don’t Want to See Become Extinct

I have always loved animals. When I was a little kid, I thought for sure I was going to grow up to be a veterinarian or a zoologist and would spend my days with these amazing creatures.

While my life path went a little differently, I have carried that love of animals everywhere with me and am always so fascinated with all the cool animals in the world.

Earth Day is coming up and with that, I think it’s a good time to reflect on the animals that our endangered of becoming extinct. It’s a reality that it could happen, it’s happened to so many already and these animals, I really don’t want to see go.
