Some of Canada's Endangered Species


The Northern Curlew

The Northern Curlew breeds in the tundra of the western arctic. At one time it may have been one of the most numerous shorebirds in Canada. But hunting diminished their numbers. They are now a protected species. http://www.audubon.org/species/eskcur?quicktabs_2=2

The Salish Sucker

Found only in small lakes and streams in B.C.'s Fraser Valley, they are a small freshwater fish. Agriculture and a growing urban population have taken their toll on the Salish Sucker's small population. http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/species-especes/species-especes/salishsucker-meuniersalish-eng.htm

The Federal Liberal

Once a common site in urban areas across all of Canada, the last election has seen a dramatic decrease in their numbers. Today there are sometimes unconfirmed sightings of the Federal Liberal in downtown Toronto. http://www.liberal.ca/
