When you walk around the San Diego ZOO look for a mark "ENDANGERED SPECIES" (there are many :-) next to info on exhibited animals - probably you will never have a chance to see these animals in their wildlife.

The status of "ENDANGERED SPECIES" is a legal designation conferred by the U.S. Department of Interior - Fish and Wildlife Service. Only species whose population in the wild are in immediate threat of becoming extinct are given this status. Rare species whose populations are not in immediate jeopardy, are designated "THREATENED" or "VULNERABLE".
