Pictured is the Black oystercatcher (Haematopus bachmani) and it’s almost extinct.  In 2020 it was estimated that its global population size is estimated between 8,900–11,000 individuals. The black oystercatcher is a species of high conservation concern throughout its range (U.S., Canadian, Alaskan, and Northern & Southern Pacific Shorebird Conservation Plans), a keystone indicator species along the north Pacific shoreline, a management indicator species in the Chugach National Forest, and a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service focal species for priority conservation action. Its range is the west coast of North America where it feeds on mussels, oysters, and other crustaceans found in the surf zones of the Pacific Ocean.  It’s estimated that it may be extinct within the next two to five years due to habitat loss, plastic pollution, and climate change.
