A-Z Endangered Animal Crafts


Welcome to our Endangered Animals unit round-up page, where you will find animals categorized alphabetically from A-Z. There were some letters that didn’t have an endangered animal, so I filled those in with animals from the Threatened or Vulnerable categories.

Definition of an endangered animal:
An endangered species is a population of organisms which is at risk of becoming extinct because it is either few in numbers, or threatened by changing environmental or predation parameters.

Learning about and crafting these animals was quite an adventure. There were many that we hadn’t even heard of before, such as the quetzal, numbat, and dhole. I was sad to learn that many of the animals on this list are endangered, and on the way to be critically endangered, because of deforestation, poaching, and other human causes. Overall, this was a fun unit. My animal-loving daughter had a blast painting all of the new printables and filling up her bedroom walls with these animals. =)
