Barometer of Life

SSC plays a key role in providing the scientific knowledge that underpins the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. IUCN aims, by 2020, to complete 160,000 global assessments or reassessments of species for the Red List. Working together with the Global Species Programme and IUCN Members, SSC will continue pushing forward to successfully fulfill this goal.
