Mali Endangered Species


White-headed Vultures are critically endangered in Mali.The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for MALI in West Africa lists 1 regionally-extinct species (Scimitar-horned Oryx), 7 critically endangered species, and 11 endangered species. The Scimitar-horned Oryx is Mali's only extinct species listed by the IUCN. While not believed to still remain in the wild, these antelopes are fortunately living in captivity — being reintroduced to Senegal and introduced near Morocco's western coast. Mali's seven critically endangered species are the African Slender-snouted Crocodile, Addra Gazelle, Hooded Vulture, Northern Bald Ibis, Rueppell's Griffon (Vulture), White-backed Vulture, and White-headed Vulture. Acridocarpus monodii shrub plants (endemic to central Mali's Dogon Plateau), Cape Hunting Dogs, Common Chimpanzees, Egyptian Eagles, Lappet-faced Vultures, Philochortus zolii lizards, Pteleopsis habeensis plants, Rhim Gazelles, Saker Falcons, Steppe Eagles, and Vepris heterophylla plants are endangered in Mali. Species named after Mali include the Mali Agama lizard and Mali Firefinch.
