Seabirds-- Endangered Species
It is really heart-aching to watch how the recent oil spills and the global climate change have made seabirds endangered species along with many others. In the recent ecological disaster in the Black Sea an estimated 30,000 seabirds died (here). More of them died in the San Francisco oil spill. Six species of seabirds are proposed to be added to the long and not ending list of endangered species (here).
While the official list of world-wide endangered species does not seem to be long (here), it is really non-exclusive.
