WhenMay 11, 2015 10:00 AM - May 15, 2015 02:00 PM
By the latest numbers, there are 2,464 animals and 2,104 plants around the world labeled "critically endangered." These species face a high risk of extinction in the wild. For 40 years the Endangered Species Act has worked to protect animals and plants from extinction and helped put those species on the path to recovery.
