Conservation tools

One of IUCN’s key objectives is to share the knowledge gathered by its unique global community of 10,000+ scientists. IUCN's knowledge products consist of conservation databases and tools which have already proved helpful to hundreds of organizations.

Conservation databases

Access directly Species, Protected Areas, Key Biodiversity Areas, Law, and Ecosystem databases:

  1. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species assesses risk of species extinction
  2. The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems assesses risk of ecosystem collapse
  3. The World Database on Key Biodiversity Areas assesses sites important for biodiversity
  4. Protected Planet assesses protected areas
  5. ECOLEX provides a gateway to environmental law.
