International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Established in 1964, the IUCN's Red List is the most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungus, and plant species.
The RedList serves as a barometer, measuring the pressures acting on species. Ripley utilizes the Red List to track its species and better understand what is happening in the wild.
The United States tracks and conserves imperiled species with the Endangered Species Act. Variations in listing do exist between the Endangered Species Act and the IUCN Red List, as Ripley works primarily with international species, we list our species' status in the wild according that that of the IUCN's Red List.
