Endangered Animal Species in Uganda

Uganda has 362 species of mammals and 1062 bird species, and the fourth and nineteenth in Africa and the whole world respectively. A few of these mammal species are likely to be endemic, with such a large number. An endemic species is one whose habitat is unique. Endemism is different from indigenous or native species in that the latter is also found elsewhere. Endemic species run a high risk of extinction due to changes in their confined habitats, particularly due to hunting and habitat destruction. Tourism is a major foreign exchange earner in Uganda.
