Amsterdam albatross has shown a steady decline since a massive environmental threats such as the introduction of other species that have continually damaged its habit. While that problem has lessened considerably but recent issues of diseases carried by other marine birds have continued to destroy the population. Scientific research has detail that the only population of this part of the albatross family lives and breed on the island called Amsterdam Island. With all these factors taken in along with the staggering small population of about a 100, the IUCN has classified them as Critically Endangered since 1994. With the such a small population, residing on one island and spreading of various diseases the chances of its survival are at best being very slim to its extinction being inevitable.
The boat-billed herons average height for a full grown adult is about 20 inches. They weight usually about 600g or 1.3 pounds. They have a unique black patch at the base of the hind neck. The animals feathers are a pale grey to white color,they have a chestnut colored belly and black on their side near the hip and ribs. They also have a scoop like bill, so they can scoop up their prey. They have wings that they fly with, as their main source of transportation. The have eyes, ears, and a beak that help them to find their prey, but mostly rely on touch. To protect themselves they raise their dark feathers that are located on their heads.
Red-tailed hawks average between 48 to 65 centimeters in length. There wingspan is approximately 4 feet,or 122 centimeters. There is sexual dimorphism in size, females are 25% larger than males. This kind of sexual dimorphism, where females are larger than males are common in birds of prey. Wow! That is pretty amazing.

A seahorse is a fish that lives under water. Seahorses prey on plankton and shrimp. Seahorse’s predators are penguins and stingrays. Seahorses are fish although they are bad swimmers. They are also very small. The male seahorse is equipped with a pouch on the ventral or front-facing, side of the tail and this is why seahorses are called seahorses. Seahorses are mainly found in shallow tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. From about 45 degrees south to 45 degrees north and live in sheltered areas such sea grass beds, estuaries, coral reefs, or mangroves. Four species are found in pacific water from North America to South America. These areas are seahorse’s habitat. When the fry, or baby seahorse, are ready to be born, the male
Tristan Albatross is apart of the D. dabbenena species. The Tristan Albatross is a fairly big seabird known for spending time near the ocean waters. The Tristan Albatross, which is hard to differentiate from the Wandering Albatross, has a wingspan up to 9-10 ft. and is primarily white with a dark back. Compared to the Wandering Albatross, they are slightly smaller, a little darker and they never really obtain their full white plumage. Their geographic distribution is very tough for experts and researches to find know due to the simple fact that they look so much like the Wandering Albatross. Although experts aren’t completely uninformed, by using tracking devices there is research that shows them in a wide variety of different places. Males
Pterophyllum scalare, also known as freshwater angelfish, are a species of cichlid that many aquarists enjoy. Typically, these fish need very specific water conditions in order to ensure survival and are therefore not recommended for beginners. Along with that, breeding angelfish is difficult as well.
Pollution is one negative environmental factor that has had a huge impact on many of the bird populations around the world. The effects of global warming are predicted to affect approximately 11% of the bird species throughout the world. Rising levels of the ocean will also have an effect on many of the coastal bird species in North America. Because many coastal birds
Seahorses are one of the many miniature sized creatures of the sea. When endangered by predators, seahorses amazingly have the capability to change color and can camouflage themselves. A seahorse’s size can vary from a staple to a hammer. Although they are fish, they do not have fins; instead they use their long tails to move around. Because they use their tails for transportation, they are extremely poor swimmers. Since they aren’t strong swimmers, they spend most of their time hanging onto things, like seaweed. Although they eat up to fifty times a day, seahorses don’t have teeth. Instead of chewing on their food, they suck it up with their snout. Seahorses are renowned for many things, but one of them is the fact that the male seahorse carries and gives birth to the babies. Seahorses are an example of one of God’s spectacular sea creatures.

The Gymnogyps californianus, also known as the California Condor is one of the largest flying birds in the world. They have a wing span up to nine and a half feet and as a result, they can glide for long distances without having to flap their wings for hours. Originally, these birds lived in different parts of North America, but settlers often shot, poisoned, and captured these birds. Those that remained faced a shortage of food supply until they could no longer survive in most areas. By 1900’s the remaining birds were now limited to the mountainous regions of Southern California (wildlife.ca.gov).

Seahorses are creatures that live in the ocean. There name means “sea monster” which comes from the greek word Hippocampus. The male seahorse is the one who holds the eggs, not the female. When they mate, the female carries the eggs into the male’s pouch until the baby seahorses come out fully developed, but very small. There are many interesting creatures in the ocean, and the seahorse is no exception.
Seven species of sea lions exist in the world. They are categorized into a group of animals that are known as pinnipeds. The modern Sea Lions body was built for marine life (life in water). They have torpedo shaped torsos that are smooth with short and thick hair, for easy land and water gliding. Their torsos are pale in colour and the rest of their body is a dark grey or dark brown, depending on the seas lion species. Their flippers are very strong and powerful, there are 2 flippers at the front and 2 at the back. Sea lions are able to lift themselves up and walk on all four flippers when they’re on land. Their flippers also have 5 ‘fingers’ and do not have claws. Sea lions have small ears found at the side of their head. Their ears are small, long flaps that point downward to avoid water getting in their ears. The weight also differs depending on the type of sea lion. However, males will usually be
