The Iucn Pink List In A Nutshell

In 1988, it was added to the record of animals in menace of extinction. The Red Ape, the orangutan (actually ‘folks of the forest’) continues to suffer precipitous declines from deforestation. Sumatran orangutans are designated as Critically Endangered by the IUCN, with a inhabitants of just a few thousand, while the Borneo orangutan is considered Threatened. The IUCN expects the critically endangered Gregg’s stream frog to lose over 80% of its population in the subsequent 10 years as a result of chytridiomycosis fungus illness. Habitat loss in Guatemala and particularly Mexico, has also led to the decline.

Also often known as the Mindoro dwarf buffalo, the Tamaraw is the one recognized bovine that’s indigenous to the Philippines. Until the twentieth century, the unique habitat of this species was primarily intact and unharmed. They were as soon as discovered all over Mindoro Island, from the plains up to the mountains. But now the inhabitants has been decreased to about 200, with many being rigorously bred in captivity.

Species Directory

Gregg’s stream frogs live in cloud forests and breed in freshwater streams. The Williams’ brilliant-eyed frog , called one of the most threatened species in Madagascar, lives under fixed threat of fires and habitat loss ensuing from unlawful logging. It lives on the mountain top of Ankaratra Massif, at an altitude of over eight,000 toes above sea stage.

Another critically endangered animal according to the IUCN, the principle causes of the Tamaraw being on the record of endangered animals within the Philippines are unlawful searching, logging, and residential land clearing. The IUCN has the Philippine eagle on its purple record of critically endangered animals because of several components.
