Uzbekistan Endangered Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for UZBEKISTAN in Central Asia lists 12 critically endangered species and 16 endangered species. Uzbekistan's twelve critically endangered species are as follows: Calligonum calcareum shrub, Dreissena caspia freshwater mussel, Dwarf Sturgeon (Little Amu Darya Shovelnose) fish, Pyrus korshinskyi pear tree, Ribes malvifolium gooseberry plant, Saiga antelope, Shovelfish, Slender-Billed Curlew, Snow Crane, Sociable Plover, Syr Darya Sturgeon, and Zygophyllum bucharicum flowering plant. The Calligonum calcareum shrub is endemic to the Sokh River valley in eastern Uzbekistan, near Kyrgyzstan. Even though Syr Darya Sturgeons are currently considered to be critically endangered, they may be extinct in Uzbekistan as well as in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan. Some endangered species are the Asiatic Wild Dog, Common Aldrovanda, Egyptian Eagle, Snow Leopard (Ounce), Saker Falcon, Steppe Eagle, Tiger, White-Headed Duck, and Wild Apricot.
