Solution

The correct option is E Domesticated species
The Red List created and maintained by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural resources (IUCN) contains the names of species that are in need of special and immediate care. This largely helps streamline the conservation process by prioritising conservation efforts and allocating our limited resources towards those species that are more in need of conservation. Domesticated species are different from species extinct in the wild, as they do not have a natural habitat. Species extinct in the wild are those that still continue to exist in zoological parks and wildlife rehabilitation centers. Therefore, domesticated species do not need conservation and are thus, excluded from the Red List.
