Definition of IUCN Red List

The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List is an invaluable tool when it comes to understanding the conservation status of species around the world. It is a comprehensive, objective global listing of both Threatened and Extinct species that have been assessed on characteristics such as population size and trends, geographical range, and rate of habitat loss. The IUCN Red List also informs conservation efforts by helping identify species that are in need of urgent action in order to avoid further decline or extinction. With its continued use and improvement, the IUCN Red List can help ensure the survival and continued success of threatened species operating within diverse ecosystems around the world.
