The following websites and encyclopedias are great places to start searching for information about your endangered species.
Step 1: Find your species on the IUCN Red List, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Endangered Species List, or the national Oceanic and Atmospheric Association's ESA Threatened and Endangered List.
Step 2: Use these two lists to find basic information about your species' behaviors and status.
Step 3: Use other Reference Sources to find any basic information that was not included in the two lists.
Step 4: Use journal articles to find more up to date studies on particular aspects of your species' lives, i.e. mating behavior, conservation efforts, communication, etc.
Reference sources are summaries of facts, definitions, histories, statistics, and other types of information on large subject areas, organized for quick look up.
Journal articles are the published findings of academic studies.
Search for information in the following sources if you did not find enough back ground information on the IUCN Red List or the Fish and Wildlife Service website.
