2011 IUCN Red List

The current round of review of revisions for the 2011 IUCN Red List has now ended. BirdLife International has assessed these contributions and finalised the list of decisions affecting the 2011 IUCN Red List. For all species, the final list can be viewed on the forum: click here. The updated documentation and categories will be incorporated into the 2011 Red List, which will be released by BirdLife in May 2011, and by IUCN in September 2011.

Two species occurring in Mongolia are affected: Lesser Kestrel Falco naumanni and Baikal Teal Anas formosa, both listed as Vulnerable in the 2010 Red List, will be downlisted to Least Concern, i.e. they won’t be considered globally threatened or near-threatened anymore!
