Endangered Species of New Zealand
New Zealand has 2,788 species endangered with extinction. A further 3,031 of New Zealand's species are believed to be endangered, but cannot be classified as such because not enough is known about them. If the long and short term trends continue, all that stands between us and witnessing mass extinction, is time. The birds page is the first to fit within the framework of the New Zealand Threat Classification System Lists:2005.
