MEET THREATENED SPECIES RECOVERY NETWORK
We at Threatened Species Recovery Network (TSRN) have long had an interest in efforts to preserve wildlife. We recently formed our organization as a grant-making charity designed to help those out in the field doing work to protect and re-introduce threatened and endangered species in the United States. TSRN hopes to raise public awareness for species whose existence is in danger, as well as raise funding for and contribute grants to individuals, volunteer groups and researchers working on the front lines to preserve threatened and endangered plant and animal life.
Our logo above depicts one of the first endangered species that sparked our interest in forming the organization. It's the leaf of the Presidio Manzanita. There's only one known plant left, and it lives in a special section of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. In December of 1998, we were happy to contribute a donation earmarked to aid in the protection of this last surviving Presidio Manzanita.
Time is running out for far too many of our native species. Since Congress passed the Endangered Species Act in 1973, the status of 40 percent of the 632 species classified as endangered, and approximately 200 more listed as threatened, has declined -- and at least 2 percent have become extinct. Of the remaining species, the status of 30 percent is stable, 10 percent have experienced improvement and the fate of the remaining 20 percent is unknown.
