more Listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ since 1969 and despite over 4 decades of global conservation efforts, tigers continue to be threatened with extinction to this very day.
Human induced changes have reduced the tiger's historical range to about 7% in which a little more than 3800 tigers are estimated to be found.
Almost half of the plants (22) have a modified level of threat compared to the 2005 assessment.
21 plants species have a lower threat level and only one has a higher one. more Pteridophytes, which include ferns and lycopods, are spore-producing plants usually found in humid environments.
more The climate mitigation potential of coastal carbon-rich ecosystems such as mangroves, saltmarshes and seagrasses – often referred to as coastal ‘blue carbon ecosystems’ – is often overlooked in national climate change policies, according to an article published in the journal Aquatic Conservation by IUCN experts.
Blue carbon ecosystems are unique in that they sequester and store carbon dioxide (CO2) at much higher rates per unit area than terrestrial forests – up to six times more than undisturbed tropical rainforests. more Natural protected areas like forests, beaches, mountains, scrublands and river ecosystems provide a wide variety of benefits to both people and nature.
When managed within the context of important conservation landscapes, they serve as refuges and movement linkages for endangered species of global significance, such as tigers and elephants.
Long-term conservation of endangered wildlife increasingly requires focus on connectivity, or functional linkages between wildlife populations and...
Pangolins are scaly insect-eating animals that live in Asia and Africa.Disruption to natural ecosystem services such as water provision, soil formation and retention, regulation of climate, carbon storage, oxygen production, and the provision of wood, honey, etc. more Each year, between March and August, migratory birds from three continents descend on an island in Indonesia in the tens of thousands, joining over 100 species of bird – among them kingfishers, terns, sandpipers, sunbirds, curlews and sea eagles – that nest permanently on the island.Well-known for its importance as a breeding site for water birds, Pulau Dua was established as a nature reserve in 1937. more Gharials are a unique crocodilian threatened with extinction and with wild populations that have decreased precipitously due to habitat destruction and accidental killings by fishermen when caught in nets.more Limiting global warming to below 2°C in line with the Paris Agreement provides the only chance for the survival of coral reefs, warns David Obura, Chair of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s Coral Reef Specialist Group, writing today in the journal Science.Latest data show that globally reefs have a chance of long-term survival if warming is limited to under 2o C, though even this may be too little too late for many reef systems.
