natural spaces are shrinking & wildlife numbers are on a rapid decline
We don’t own the planet Earth, we belong to it. And we must share it with our wildlife.
As modern society continues to demand more natural resources, wild habitats are being diminished and wildlife numbers are declining. WWF's 2022 report shows global wildlife populations have plummeted by 69% on average since 1970. Wildlife is in critical danger.

There are an estimated 42,100 species threatened with extinction
according to the iucn, there are over 150k species on the iucn red list, with more than 42k species threatened with extinction: including 41% of amphibians, 37% of sharks and rays, 36% of reef building corals, 34% of conifers, 27% of mammals and 13% of birds.visit the iucn red list
every species is
exquisitely adapted to the particular environment in which it has survived. Who are we to destroy or even diminish biodiversity?
The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchild may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?
David Attenborough on the current rapid rate of global biodiversity loss
nature is amazingly resilient.
places we have destroyed, given time and help, can once again support life, and endangered species can be given a second chance. Despite some recent success stories, many animals are still endangered, and it's mostly due to unsustainable human-led activities

Classified as Critically Endangered
according to the IUCN Red List
So what exactly classifies as a critically endangered species?
The Red List defines the severity and specific causes of a species’ threat of extinction. Classifying a species as endangered has to do with its range, habitat, and its actual population, so a species can be of least concern in 1 area and endangered in another.view criteria on national geographic
The Red List has seven levels of conservation, ranging from 'least concern' through to
from the oceans
to the forests
The definitions of the three threatened categories (vulnerable, endangered, and critically endangered) are based on the following five criteria. each category has a different qualifying threshold for these key criteria. As the population and range of the species decreases, the species becomes increasingly more threatened.
Rate of Reduction
A critically endangered species’ population has declined between 80 and 90 percent. This decline is measured over 10 years or three generations of the species, whichever is longer.
A critically endangered species’ extent of occurrence is less than 100 square kilometers (39 square miles). its area of occupancy is estimated to be less than 10 square kilometers (4 square miles).
Size of Population
A species is classified as critically endangered when there are fewer than 250 mature individuals, or when the number of mature individuals declines by at least 25% within 3 years or 1 generation, whichever is longer.
A species is classified as critically endangered when its population is restricted to less than 50 mature individuals. When a species’ population is this low, its area of occupancy is not considered.
A species is classified as critically endangered when the probability of extinction in the wild is at least 50 percent within 10 years or three generations, whichever is longer.
