Species conservation science

Animals, fungi and plants are essential to a healthy planet, but growing pressures from human activities are increasingly putting them at risk of extinction. Understanding the health of the world鈥檚 biodiversity is essential to inform and guide conservation action. 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 is at the forefront of the global fight to save species from extinction, through our work in species conservation science.

Leading global species conservation science

澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 leads in the production of conservation tools to monitor the status of the natural world and measure progress towards achieving global goals.

Assessing biodiversity

The 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Red List of Threatened Species鈩 is the world鈥檚 most comprehensive information source on the global extinction risk status of animal, fungus and plant species.听The shows trends in overall extinction risk for species groups.

The Environmental Impact Classification for Alien Taxa (EICAT) is the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 global standard for measuring the severity of environmental impacts caused by animals, fungi and plants living outside their natural range. The听听is managed by the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Species Survival Commission Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) and the听听is an ISSG led initiative.

Science underpinning conservation planning and action

As part of the Key Biodiversity Areas听Partnership, 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 supports the vision of the KBA Programme to identify, document, manage, resource and safeguard a comprehensive network of sites that contribute significantly to the global persistence of biodiversity.

Based on 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Red List data, the Species Threat Abatement and Restoration (STAR) metric听estimates the contribution that investments can make to reducing species鈥 extinction risk.

The brings together 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 established metrics, including STAR and the Restoration Barometer, to calculate the proportion of global goals that conservation work could deliver in a given place.

Taking the measure of conservation

The 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Contributions for Nature platform shows how 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Members' conservation and restoration actions are helping to achieve global goals. This will be valuable in measuring progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the鈥

Science-based policy engagement

澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 provides scientific information and technical advice to support the development of international, regional and national conservation policy, including the听听(CBD),听听and听.

The 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Red List provides indicators for the United Nations听, particularly听听and听.听

The Global Species Action Plan听offers support to assist governments and other stakeholders to take all the actions needed to meet global goals to prevent extinctions and improve the status of wild species.

The听Reverse the Red movement aims to unit tools and partnerships to support countries in delivering CBD targets.

Local to global expertise

澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 Members, Commissions and Secretariat from all over the world work together on species conservation science.

The active participation of 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Members and Commissions supports the production of conservation tools hosted by the Secretariat. For example, the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Red List is made possible through the , and the听 is open to all 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 constituents to submit their work. 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 co-hosts the KBA Secretariat with Birdlife International, and is one of 13 organisations in the KBA Partnership.

The Species Survival Commission is a science-based network of more than 10,500 volunteer experts, who provide specialist knowledge of animal, fungus and plant species.

The Secretariat鈥檚 Science and Data Centre includes the Science and the Biodiversity Assessment and Knowledge teams, with experts on the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Red List, freshwater biodiversity, invasive alien species and key biodiversity areas.
