Some sample questions from this category:

* This wild canine once lived in much of the southern U.S., but today has only a tiny fragment of its former range. Attempts are being made to reintroduce it into the wild.
* This wild cat was also once a common denizen of Southern forests; now only a handful survive in the wild.
* This is one of the few endangered hoofed mammals of the U.S.
* The addition of this animal to the ranks of endangered and threatened species in 2000 caused great controversy in Montana, where locals feared attempts to protect it would limit trapping and logging.
* This bird, to many people, symbolizes the conflict over enforcement of the Endangered Species Act.
