1 in 10 Marine Species Could Go Extinct in Tropical Eastern Pacific:

12 percent — 1 in 10 — of marine species in the tropical eastern Pacific face extinction according to a recent report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) . Some 1,600 species in such regions as the Gulf of California, the coasts of Panama and Costa Rica as well as several offshore oceanic islands and archipelagos in the tropical eastern Pacific were surveyed and 197 species found to be “critically endangered”, “endangered” or “vulnerable.” Among those species threatened are marine shore-fish, marine mammals, sea turtles, sea birds, corals, mangroves and seagrasses; overfishing, pollution, habitat destruction and impacts from El Niño have all played a part in endangering their survival.
