Quiz: How Many of these Endangered Mammals are Left?

There are probably countless endangered mammals in the world but you will recognize all fifteen in the latest quiz from our sibling site, the Ark in Space.  Your job is to guess just how many individuals of each species are alive in the world today.  Some of the answers may surprise you (and some will make your heart a little heavy, but this is a quiz about endangered mammals, after all).  

There is little irony to be found in the fact that if you added up the total numbers of all fifteen of these species they would probably only be a fraction of a percentage in terms of numbers compared to us, homo sapiens (there probably is irony in the sapiens bit). In fact we’re probably more of a virus than a mammal in many ways…
