Zimbabwe Endangered Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for ZIMBABWE in Southern Africa lists 7 critically endangered species and 17 endangered species. Cave Squeaker Frogs, Hooded Vultures, Hook-Lipped Rhinoceri, Mozzie (Kariba Tilapia) fish, White-Backed Vultures, White-Headed Vultures, and White-Winged Crake birds are critically endangered in Zimbabwe. Critically endangered species include the Cape Griffon vulture bird, Cape Hunting Dog, Chirinda Toad, Egyptian Eagle, Falcate Yellowwood tree, Inyanga Toad, Inyangani River Frog, Lappet-Faced Vulture, Malagasy Pond Heron, Pepper Bark Tree, Runde Cycad plant, Southern Crowned Crane, Steppe Eagle, and Zimbabwe Big-Fingered Frog (Forest Rain Frog). Besides the Zimbabwe Big-Fingered Frog, there is no other IUCN-listed species named after Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe is the last country in alphabetical order and is therefore the last country to be featured in the endangered-species posts series! Posts about endangered species living on some islands and territories are coming soon.
