Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources

Now IUCN that is international Union conservation of nature and natural resources has given the following classification to explain threat level or the danger level for extension so you have two species that are considered extinct so one is extinct that is they are no more for example dodo birds, then you have extinct in wild that means they are no more found in wild in their natural setting however under preserved setting let’s say under a century all a national park they might be present so they are present not in their natural surroundings but are artificially preserved.

The next is threatened species there are 3 threatened species that we talk about the first is the critically endangered then you have endangered and vulnerable critically endangered are very close to extinction so they are kind of present and very small amount, endangered and vulnerable are nearly extinction in near future. then you have near threatened which are close to a kind of threat that they might be threatened in near future unleashed concern means they are abundant in huge amount for example ducks, pigeons, cats, dogs so all these are least concerned species that means we are not much bothered about the extinction for these species.

The next is data deficient and not evaluated, not evaluated at the species that are not counted under the IUCN classification and data deficient means we do not have sufficient data to find out the level of threat for the species.

Critically Endangered

  • Cheetah

  • Pink-headed duck

  • Mountain quail

  • Forest spotted owlet

  • Madhuca insignis (a wild variety of mahua)

  • Hubbardia heptaneuron (a species of grass)

Now some of the critically endangered species that NCRT mention are these however in recent months in recent years there have been numerous endangered species that have come up we have the complete list in the details of all at the current affairs on Examrace, so you will have the link below the video so you can follow those for updates, so among the critically endangered once you have cheetah, Pink-headed duck, Mountain quail, Forest spotted owlet then you have wide variety of mahua and species of grass that are critically endangered.
