The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for GUINEA-BISSAU in West Africa currently lists three critically endangered species and 16 endangered species. Guinea-Bissau's three critically endangered species are featured on the lists of many other countries. They are the Atlantic Goliath Grouper, Largetooth Sawfish, and Slender-snouted Crocodile. Endangered species include the African Wild Dog, Cassine River Worm Lizard, Chimpanzee, Common Guitarfish, Dusky Grouper, Rüppell's Vulture, and White Skate. The Cassine River Worm Lizard lives on and around the border between Guinea-Bissau and Guinea, northeast of the Atlantic Ocean coastline.
