Overall, the excretory system acts in order to maintain a healthy fluid environment within animals. It works in order to remove nitrogenous wastes such as ammonia (which is a highly toxic compound). Due to the fact that osmoregulation is structurally and functionally linked in many animals, the process of osmoregulation will also be included.

Examples include the removal of carbon dioxide in the air we exhale, and unwanted nitrogen in sweat, nails and hair. (Don't confuse excretion with defecation. Defecation is getting rid of undigested foods from the body... via the colon.)
