What is the IUCN Red List?

The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species is a critical indicator of the health of the world’s biodiversity. It was established in 1964, and today is the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi and plant species.

The IUCN list provides information about the range, population size, habitat and ecology, use and/or trade, threats, and conservation actions that will help inform necessary conservation decisions and is used by government agencies, wildlife departments, conservation-related etc.
