Title: The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
Url: http://www.iucnredlist.org/
Publisher: International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources
Description: The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources Red List of Threatened Species conveys information about plant and animal species on its website, and is regarded as "the most comprehensive, objective global approach for evaluating the conservation status of plant and animal species." Visitors will find that the website is divided up into the seven categories they use to classify the threat to plants and animals. The categories are "Extinct," "Extinct in the Wild," "Critically Endangered," "Endangered," "Vulnerable," "Near Threatened," and "Least Concern." Visitors can click on each category to see an alphabetical list of the species, or to search by other criteria. The "Photos" section has pictures of threatened species by type from 2000-2011. Each photo has a brief paragraph about the state of the species next to it. Visitors shouldn't miss the photos of the Red-Crested Tree Rat, Blessed Poison Frog, or the Violet-Spotted Reef Lobster.
