Netherlands Endangered Species


The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for The NETHERLANDS (Holland) in Western Europe lists one extinct species (Houting fish), eight critically endangered species, and eight endangered species. The Netherlands' critically endangered species are as follows: Balearic Shearwater bird, Baltic Sturgeon, Blue Skate, European Eel, European Mink, Slender-Billed Curlew, Sociable Plover bird, and Spengler's Freshwater Mussel. Altantic Bluefin Tuna, Common Rorqual baleen whales, Great Knot birds, Halibut fish, Steppe Eagles, Thick-Shelled River Mussels, White-Headed Ducks, and Yellow-Breasted Buntings are endangered in the Netherlands. Since the aforementioned species are listed for plenty of other countries, the IUCN may need to list more localized species that are endangered.
