How we could save 515 animals on the brink of extinction
Recently, scientists analyzed 30,000 species and found that 515 of them contain fewer than 1,000 living individuals.
These animals are on the brink of extinction.
The list includes 74 mammals, 335 birds, 41 reptiles, and 65 amphibians.
But there's still hope.

Here are just 10 of the species that could be saved.
