What Are Endangered Species

Did you know that Lions are disappearing?

Endangered species are those species considered to be nearly extinct as per the IUCN.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) are responsible of categorizing all the world species as per their vulnerability to extinction. They have a Red List that places species into the following categories:

  • Extinct – No species still alive
  • Extinct in the wild – Species that disappeared and only lived in the captivity.
  • Critically endangered – Species with the highest risk of extinction.
  • Endangered species – Species with highest probability of extinction in the wild.
  • Vulnerable – Species with high risk of endangerment in the wild.
  • Near threatened – Species with a possibility of endangerment in the near future.
  • Least Concern – Species with the lowest probability of endangerment.
  • Data deficient – Species that have not been assessed enough to verify their risk towards endangerment.
  • Not evaluated – Species that have never been evaluated.
