The biodiversity present on planet Earth is truly marvelous and priceless. Research conducted by the American Museum of Natural History found that there may be nearly 18,000 bird species in the world, which is incredible and awe-inspiring to imagine. This infographic explores 55 bird species from across the globe, illustrated and ranked by size. In addition, it provides insight into their natural habits and conservation status. Each and every bird included on this vibrant, colorful chart plays an important role in their ecosystems, which is part of why it is so important to protect and preserve as many animal and plant species as possible.
By understanding birds, their habits, and what threats they face, we can become more informed and passionate advocates for creating a world that is safe and secure for all species. While some extinction is natural, most of it is accelerated by human activity, but there are steps we can take to reduce our impact.
