As part of a periodic review, New York's wildlife officials are now assessing which of the state's species are in greatest conservation need. This review has brought together an unlikely set of threatened animals -- three bats, the giant eastern hellbender salamander, and a bird called Bicknell's thrush.
But all five have at least this in common: They're native New Yorkers, their long-term survival is in jeopardy, and protecting them would be good for us too since we all need stability in the face of disease, water pollution and climate change.
