  7. It's A Puzzle written by Bogert/Grimwood/Idlet
  8. B.O.L.I.
  9. Crocodile Shoes
  10. There's Life At The Zoo
You'll find many a beat to groove with, from country to hip hop with some reggae and blues thrown in, The Endangerbles CD is a feast of musical entertainment!  You will not be able to stop tapping your toes as you enjoy the happening sounds coming out of your speakers, and the lyrics all pertain to helping our fellow animal brother and sisters!

We just loved the sound and my children boogied down like there was no tomorrow!  We really enjoyed Girls Rock & Roll as well as, Crocodile Shoes and Extinction for Extinction!  My 7 year old daughter had her head be-bopping and my 5 year old grand-daughter kept asking for more!  You couldn't ask for a better response than that!!

The Endangerbles were created to bring awareness to children and adults alike.  The danger of extinction faces many of the animals today!  Each creature represented on their web site features animals who are facing extinction, those who are vulnerable and those which are threatened! 

Bucksnort III the Indian Rhino: 
- The West African black rhino once ranged throughout the savannah zones of central-west Africa. The last  survivors of this subspecies remained in northern Cameroon.
- The extinction of this subspecies of black rhino was caused by pouching for their horn, lack of finance, limited anti-poaching efforts, limited local capacity for conservation management, failure of courts to hand down sentences that can act as a deterrent to potential poachers, and genetic and demographic factors.

Croc-A-Billy the Crocodile:
- Listed as endangered in the Caribbean, Central and South America, Florida, and Mexico.
This species was once threatened by hunting for its hide (to make belts and handbags) and capture by humans for commercial farming. It is now legally protected throughout most of its range, and hide hunting has been eliminated, but some threats still remain, such as habitat loss, pollution, and accidental deaths by fishing nets, cars, and boats.
 


Miss Scarlett the Scarlet Macaw:
-The Scarlett Macaw is the only threatened Macaw while the other 18 are listed as threatened.
Humans poach these birds for their colourful feathers, as well as, the international black market pet trade.
Due to human expansion, the natural habitat of the Scarlett Macaw is being threatened!

Sasha the Baby Seal:
-Thousands of Harp Seals are being slaughtered by clubbed, hooked, and skinned for their fur.
Canada's Annual Seal Hunt is the largest slaughter of Marine Mammals in the World.
Every Spring, thousands of seal pups are born on the ice floes off the Canadian Atlantic coastline of Newfoundland and Labrador, the St. Lawrence River and the eastern shores of Quebec.

Ulysses the Bald Eagle:
-When America adopted the bald eagle as the national symbol in 1782, the country may have had as many as 100,000 nesting eagles. The first major decline of the species probably began in the mid to late 1800’s, coinciding with the decline of waterfowl, shorebirds, and other prey.
- By 1963, with only 487 nesting pairs of bald eagles remaining, the species was in danger of extinction. Loss of habitat, shooting, and DDT poisoning contributed to the near demise of the Bald Eagle.
 -  Based on the most recent population figures, the Service estimates that there are at least 9,789 nesting pairs of bald eagles in the contiguous United States. Bald eagles have staged a remarkable population rebound and have recovered to the point that they no longer need the protection of the Endangered Species Act.

 
Kuhl the Tiger Cub:
-  Since 1900, the endangered tiger's habitat and numbers have been reduced by up to 95 per cent. 
-   Poachers continue to poison waterholes or set steel wire snares to kill tigers and tiger prey, selling their skins and body parts for use in traditional Chinese medicine.
-  Of the eight original subspecies of tigers, three have become extinct in the last 60 years, an average of one every 20 years.The Bali tiger became extinct in the 1930's. The Caspian tiger was forced into extinction in the 1970's. And the Javan tiger followed in the 1980's. 

 Milton the Orangutan:
The destruction and degradation of the tropical rain forest, particularly lowland forest, in Borneo and Sumatra is the main reason orangutans are threatened with extinction.
-  Caused primarily by human activity (intense legal logging, illegal logging, conversion of forest to palm oil plantations and timber estates, mining, clearing forest for settlements, and road construction) and also by large-scale fires facilitated by the El Nino weather phenomena.
-  The total number of Bornean orangutans is estimated to be less than 14% of what it was in the recent past (from around 10,000 years ago until the middle of the twentieth century) and this sharp decline has occurred mostly over the past few decades due to human activities and development.
