While the majority of species at Zoos SA are threatened with extinction, there is hope that by working together we can reverse this threat. As a conservation charity we, along with many other like-minded organisations around the world, are working tirelessly to ‘reverse the red’ through aassessment planning and action.
To present the positive outcomes, the Red List assessment process has been expanded to show species recovery and conservation impact, known as the Green Status of Species.
The IUCN Green Status of Species complements the Red List by providing a tool for assessing the recovery of species’ populations and measuring their conservation success. Hence Reverse the Red!
Everyone has a role to play in protecting species – whether we’re government agencies, NGOs, zoos, aquaria, botanical gardens, multinational agreements, communities, or individuals
