What is The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species?

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ (or The IUCN Red List) has a long established history as the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of plant and animal species. It is based on an objective system of assessing the risk of extinction for a species. Species listed as Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable are collectively described as ‘threatened’.

How is The IUCN Red List compiled?

Species assessments on The IUCN Red List are generated through the knowledge of thousands of the world’s leading species scientists through a peer review process. Contributions are made by members of IUCN’s Species Survival Commission, the IUCN Red List Partnership and other experts. Information management tools, collectively referred to as the Species Information Service (SIS), have been developed to collect, manage, process, and publish data on The IUCN Red List.
