The IUCN World Conservation Congress is taking place this year from 1-10 Sept in Hawaii. On Monday (4 Sept), the revised IUCN Red List, a global status assessment of the world’s species, was released. Some species have improved enough through diligent conservation measures to be downgraded to a less threatened status, while others are worse off. Read the release from the IUCN website here and search for species here.
