American Trail showcases species that are gems of North American wildlife, and treasures to us all. These animals represent the triumph of the American spirit and conservation success stories. The majority of American Trail species have rebounded after facing severe threats. Many of the residents of American Trail have been listed as endangered. Conservation efforts—including efforts made by the National Zoo—have helped their populations recover and thrive.
