Libya Endangered Species


The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for LIBYA in North Africa lists 9 critically endangered species, 19 endangered species, and one extinct-in-the-wild species (Scimitar-horned Oryx). Libya's nine critically endangered species are the Addax, Addra Gazelle, Balearic Shearwater bird, Callitriche pulchra aquatic plant, European Eel, Leith's Tortoise, Maltese Ray, Monkfish, and Slender-billed Curlew bird. Endangered species include the Dusky Grouper, Lappet-faced Vulture, Rhim Gazelle, Rough Ray, Violinfish, Philochortus zolii lizard, and White-headed Duck. The aforementioned lizards might be found in isolated locations in several North African countries, including Algeria, Egypt, Mali, and Niger. In Libya, these lizards might live near the city of Al 'Uqaylah, which is located beside the Mediterranean Sea.
