Wildlife Facts

 

BALD EAGLE

Status: On July 12, 1995, the bald eagle was reclassified from endangered to threatened in the lower 48 states. It remains unlisted in Alaska.

Population: 80,000 to 110,000 eagles exist in the wild; 4,500 breeding pairs in the lower 48 states.

Threats: Habitat loss because of development in coastal areas, PCB poisoning, and shooting for feathers.

Survival: Over 30 years in the wild; longer in captivity.

 

 

GRAY WOLF

Status: All gray wolf populations in the lower 48 states are listed as endangered except in Minnesota, where they are listed as threatened. Populations in Alaska are unlisted.

Population: In the U.S. there are an estimated 6,000 to 8,000 wolves in Alaska and 2,700 in the lower 48 states. 

Threats: Because wolves need wildland habitat and an abundant supply of prey, human encroachment into wolf territory has become a leading threat to their survival. The illegal killing of wolves is also a serious problem.

Survival: Wolves live eight to 12 years.

Elk

Status: stable.

Population: Total population unknown.

Threats: Elk once lived throughout most of the United States and Canada, but the species range has dwindled because of uncontrolled hunting for sport and food and because of land development. In the 19th century, ranchers shot them to reduce competition with livestock for food.

Survival: Elk generally live about 15 years in the wild and 25 years in captivity.

GRIZZLY BEAR

Status: Threatened

Population: Approximately 850 bears exist in the lower 48 states.

Threats: Threats to the survival of the grizzly bear include habitat destruction caused by logging, mining and human development and illegal poaching (illegal killings).

Survival: Grizzlies can live up to 30 years in the wild.

Moose

Status: stable

Population: Total population unknown.

Threats: Moose once lived throughout most of the United States and Canada, but the species range has dwindled because of uncontrolled hunting for sport and food and because of land development. In the 19th century, ranchers shot them to reduce competition with livestock for food.

Survival: Moose live up to 20 years.

LYNX

Status: The lynx is currently proposed for listing as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.

Threats: Once hunted and trapped for their fur, the lynx is now protected from all hunting in the U.S., except in Montana and Alaska. The greatest threat faced by lynx today is the destruction and overuse of their habitat. Because lynx need large areas of undisturbed forest, road building creates barriers and isolates populations. Recreational activities such as skiing, snowmobiling, and the use of sport utility vehicles also displace lynx from forests.

Population: In the lower 48 states, as few as 700 to 1,200 lynx exist.

Survival: Lynx in the wild tend to live 10 to 15 years.

Mountain Lion, Cougar, Puma

Status: The Cougar is currently proposed for listing as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.

Threats: mountain lions  once  roamed almost all of the lower 48 states; in fact, they ranged from northern British Columbia to southern Chile and Argentina, but the species range has dwindled because of uncontrolled hunting and because of land development. 

Population: Total population unknown.

Survival: The Cougar has an average life span of 12 years in the wild.
