What Species of Stingray Are Endangered? Well, none officially have a conservation status of “endangered”, but there are four species that are currently listed as “vulnerable”:
Threats To Stingrays
Humans - although they’re not hugely popular as food, stingrays are often killed because they cause damage to shell-fishing grounds. In Japan, they’re farmed for their skin, which is used to make wallets, sword handles, shoes and jackets.
Pollution - oil spills are just one example of how pollution can cause harm to marine life.
Hammerhead sharks - these are the most common threat to stingrays.
Lemon sharks - another big danger!
Carnivorous fish - most fish wouldn't be able to fit a stingray in their mouth, so these ones must be quite big.
