Can you guess the species at risk?
The global status of species is assessed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and maintained on its Red List of Threatened Species. Currently, Canada has 127 species on the Red List. An important impact of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) conservation work is that we protect and recover habitat for more than 50 Canadian species on the Red List or those that have been assessed as near threatened. Can you guess the species at risk that NCC is working to protect?
