Wildlife species in Maine that are endangered or threatened and how to protect them

Johanna James-Heinz / maine.gov

Endangered Species Day on May 19 calls attention to the many wildlife species in decline, often due to human threats—and also celebrates those species that are coming back due to conservation efforts. We learn about the fish, insects, birds, mammals, plants and other species that Maine scientists are most concerned about, as well as some success stories that are no longer endangered or threatened.
