Red List Partnership

Initially formed in 2000 (as the ‘Red List Consortium’), the Red List Partnership provides support for The IUCN Red List and the wider biodiversity assessments initiative.

The production of The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ is made possible through the active participation of the Red List Partners and their respective networks. As a result, the growing number of species included on the Red List represents an enormous investment of time, expertise and financial resources by a large number of individuals and organizations. IUCN gratefully acknowledges the contributions, dedication and commitment from the extensive network of volunteers who make the production of The IUCN Red List possible.

The Red List Partnership currently involves the following organizations:

IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature helps the world find pragmatic solutions to our most pressing environment and development challenges by supporting scientific research; managing field projects all over the world; and bringing governments, NGOs, the UN, international conventions and companies together to develop policy, laws and best practice.  The world's oldest and largest global environmental network, IUCN is a democratic membership union with more than 1,000 government and NGO member organizations, and over 13,000 volunteer scientists and experts in some 160 countries. IUCN's work is supported by over 1,000 professional staff in 60 offices and hundreds of partners in public, NGO and private sectors around the world. IUCN's headquarters are located in Gland, near Geneva, in Switzerland. For more information, visit their website, or follow them on Twitter (@IUCN) or Facebook.
