Endangered Species in Our Care

Established in 1964, The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi and plant species.


The IUCN Red List has the following main categories in order from least to most threatened:

Least Concern, Near Threatened, Vulnerable, Endangered, Critically Endangered, Extinct in the Wild, and Extinct.

The following species in our care at the Lee Richardson Zoo

are listed as Endangered or Critically Endangered.
