The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species is a critical indicator of the health of the world’s biodiversity – that is, the variety of life on earth. The IUCN Red List tells us what we need to know to save our wild species.
So far more than 76,000 species have been assessed. Our target is to assess 160,000* species by 2020 to enable better conservation and policy decisions. Your contribution will help us reach that goal.
*160,000 species is around 8% of all described species. This sample will enable us to have a better indication of how life on Earth is faring.
