Five species in the Canidae family are currently considered endangered.
Scientists have been trying to reintroduce some of these species as canids help maintain the habitats they live in.
They also play an important role in helping the ecosystems they are a part of.
But canid populations are still dwindling because of things like habitat loss and climate change.
Please sign this petition to urge authorities to protect canids from becoming extinct!
