Endangered species: The species that are on the verge of extinction and require protection and conservation are termed endangered species. Governments and international organizations work to safeguard endangered animals. Laws limit hunting and habitat degradation. Individuals and organizations who breach these regulations incur sanctions. As a result, many endangered species have recovered. Example: tiger, wild buffalo, etc.


Extinct species: Species that no longer exist on the earth are termed extinct species. A species is extinct when the last surviving member has died. The National Biological Diversity Act (NBA), 2002, protects endangered species and their habitats. Threatened species are notified under Section 38 of the NBA, 2002. Example: Dinosaurus.


All the animals, big as well as small, face extinction. Certain small animals like insects, butterflies, birds, etc., along with large animals like dinosaurs, face extinction when the habitat or population of certain animals or species is destroyed or reduced at a faster pace for a certain reason.
