Tunisia Endangered Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for TUNISIA in North Africa lists 11 extinct species, 1 extinct-in-the-wild species, 16 critically endangered species, and 29 endangered species. Here are some of Tunisia's critically endangered species: Addax antelope, Addra Gazelle, Balearic Shearwater bird, Baltic Sturgeon, European Eel, Maltese Ray, Mercuria punica aquatic snail (possibly extinct), Monkfish, Slender-Billed Curlew bird, and Vicia fulgens flowering plant. Endangered species include the Barbary Ape, Blackchin Guitarfish, Blanc's Fringe-Toed Lizard, Bushy Coral, Common Rorqual baleen whale, Edmi (Cuvier's Gazelle), Egyptian Eagle, Giant Devil Ray, Mediterranean Monk Seal, Rough Ray, Sandy Skate, Steppe Eagle, Tortonese's Goby fish, Undulate Ray, Violinfish, and White-Headed Duck. Tortonese's Gobies live in mostly in the Mediterranean Sea's Sicilian Channel, along the Tunisian coast from Bizerte in the west past Tunis (Tunisia's capital) on the way to the city of Chebba. These fish also live in water surrounding the Aegadian Islands (west of Sicily) and in southeastern Tunisia near Zarzis.
