Solution

The correct option is B Endangered and threatened
The IUCN 'Red List of Threatened Species' is also known as the IUCN Red List or 'Red Data List'. It was founded in 1964, and it is the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of biological species. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the world's main authority on the conservation status of species.
A series of 'Regional Red Lists' are produced by countries or organizations, which assess the risk of extinction to species within a political management unit. The IUCN Red List is set upon precise criteria to evaluate the extinction risk of thousands of species and subspecies. These criteria are relevant to all species and all regions of the world. The aim is to convey the urgency of conservation issues to the public and policy makers, as well as help the international community to try to reduce species extinction.
