A federally endangered poweshiek skipperling (Oarisma poweshiek) at the Minnesota Zoo. There are only five adults in captivity, all at this zoo. There are just a few hundred left in the wild. Reason for its decline is still a mystery, but the catastrophic loss of prairie habitat due to farming/ethanol production are detrimental.

A biologist holds up an endangered (IUCN) relict leopard frog (Lithobates onca) near the Hoover Dam. This animal’s habitat has been reduced over the years substantially. Though it is a candidate species for federal protection, federal and state agencies are working to ensure that it doesn’t need to be listed.

Red knot (Calidris canutus), a candidate species for listing due to a rapid decline in population. The bird is dependent on one food during it’s northward migration: horseshoe crab eggs. Overfishing of the crabs has led a dramatic the decline of both knots and crabs. This bird was captured as part of a banding study by the Delaware Bay Shorebird Project.

With one of the world’s largest migratory routes, the red knot (Calidris canutus rufa) finds itself especially susceptible to any disruption in its feeding areas along the way. Overfishing of horseshoe crabs along the eastern coast of the US has taken away a much-needed source of energy for the species. (US: Candidate for listing)
