Endangered Species Status: CRITICALLY ENDANGERED The Sumatran Elephants which resides in the Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra, along with the Sumatran Orangutan, Sumatran Tigers and the Sumatran Rhino are, “all critically endangered and all clinging to survival in a small patch of rainforest. I am working with Wildlife Asia on the Elephant Patrols project and we are raising starter funds and this has never been done in the Leuser,” quote by Paul Hilton, renowned conservation photojournalist who is spearheading a project to try and protect the Sumatran Elephants, and all Sumatran species from extinction within this quickly disappearing Leuser ecosystem through his work as a conservation photojournalist.

Audubon Florida http://fl.audubon.org
Endangered Species Status:  CRITICALLY ENDANGERED The Florida Grasshopper Sparrow’s habitat is located solely in the dry prairie habitat located in central and southern Florida. It is estimated that more then 85% of their habitat has been destroyed due to their land being converted to pasture land for cattle.
What can you do? Eat less meat! Even if you still prefer to eat some meat just trying reducing the amount you eat every day or throughout your week and try to become conscious of your meat consumption.  The reduction of meat consumption will help reduce the amount of land being converted for cattle grazing which effects many species and adds greatly to the greenhouse effect. So try eating less meat and meat products in your daily living!

Endangered Species Status: These macaws are Least Concern status but their numbers in the wild are significantly decreasing due to habitat loss of the rainforest. Much of the rainforest is being destroyed for paper and palm oil production.
What can I do: A major change you can do is stop buying any products with palm oil in them! This will greatly help all rainforests throughout the world, not just in South America where the Green Winged Macaws reside. Also, don’t participate in the owning of the green winged macaw as a pet due to their reduction of numbers from illegal parrot trade.
