The National Geographic website has an interactive photo map of animals in the United States that are on the Endangered Species List. The map accompanies their January 2009 print and online article entitled "Countdown to Extinction," and also includes a photo gallery and the story of the successful rebound of the white rhinoceros in southern Africa. By clicking on the photo of the pygmy rabbit or "View Photo Map" on the homepage, the visitor will be taken to a map of the United States with clickable locations of 20 animal species that are endangered or threatened. Visitors should not miss taking a look at the photo and accompanying facts about the "Alabama Beach Mouse" in Alabama and the "Ocelot" in Texas. In order to learn more about the Endangered Species Act under which the creatures on the map are protected, visitors should click on the "Feature Article" link above the photo map. The "Photo Gallery" link, located above the photo map will take visitors to some arresting and elegant photos of various animal and plant species, some of which were not on the photo map. The photo of the Loggerhead Sea Turtle is beautiful, and not to be missed.
