Tuvalu Endangered Species



The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for TUVALU in Oceania lists no critically endangered species and 9 endangered species. Tuvalu's endangered species are as follows: two species of Teatfish (Holothuria nobilis and Holothuria whitmaei), Green Turtle, Micronesian Skink (Steindachner's Emo Skink), Phoenix Petrel bird, Prickly Redfish sea cucumber, Sandfish sea cucumber, Undulate Wrasse fish, and White-Throated Storm Petrel bird. Even though the Micronesian Skink species is listed as endangered, these animals might actually be extinct or critically endangered in Tuvalu. They also live on the islands of American Samoa, Cook Islands (associated with New Zealand), Swains (Olosenga) Island (United States), Tokelau (New Zealand), and Wallis and Futuna (France).
