Endangered Species

Endangered Species: Save Our Species Coloring Book

There are over 1,300 different species in the United States that are listed as threatened or endangered. This picture book will introduce you to 21 plant and animal species found in the United States, nearly all of which are either endangered or threatened. The plants and animals shown here are not necessarily threatened by pesticides; however, they are examples of the many different species EPA is protecting.

Print the pages and use your crayons to bring to life oceans, swamps, deserts, islands and a variety of plants and animals. If we all work together, we can continue to share the earth with these fascinating and important species and enjoy them in the wild -- not only in the pages of books.
