Animals of the List of Threatened Species

Background

Unfortunately, more and more animals (and plants) are becoming extinct. Many others are on the Red Lists of threatened species.

I would like to photograph these animals to document the loss. The first step - parallel to the other project and during the times when I cannot take care of dragonflies of the Black Forest - is to photograph the birds. For this purpose, I evaluated the Red Lists of the western federal states, the Geamtliste of Germany and Switzerland. The result was depressing...

In the Red List, the level of endangerment is divided into categories. These are:

Germany International (IUCN)
0 extinct  (EX) / extinct in the wild (EW)
1 critically endangered (CR)
2 endangered (EN)
3 vulnerable (VU)
Vorwarnliste near threatened (NT)
