The Threatened Species Thematic Center, has a complete exposure on endangered species,
between them:

Quebrantahuesos: In the 80s there were hardly any Redoubt bones in Europe, and the Pyrenean population would be the only one that, thanks to the conservation measures developed, proved to be viable.

The last of the Andalusian bonebreakers disappeared from the Sierra de Cazorla at the end of 1986, the year in which these mountains were declared a Natural Park by the Junta de Andalucía. That same year work began on the reintroduction of the bonebreaker, always following the recommendations of the UICN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature): feasibility studies, social awareness, threat control.

Leonado Vulture (Bioindicador): The Leonado Vulture it is a species that does not appear to have conservation problems.

However, sufficient knowledge is not always available to anticipate future eventualities. The Leonado Vulture, as a carrion-carrier bird, can be a bioindicator species suitable for locating threats and in which to test the reintroduction systems of the quebrantahuesos.

Iberian lynx (Poblaciones): The Iberian lynx is the most threatened feline on the planet and is listed by IUCN «in critical danger of extinction.» Andalusia has the only viable populations in the world. The Doñana and Andújar-Cardeña cores are the last places where the Iberian lynx still finds well-preserved habitats and quality food. Currently, various conservation actions are being included in «The Conservation of the Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus) in Andalusia».
