The IUCN Green Status of Species is an optimistic new part of the IUCN Red List of Threatened SpeciesTM that provides a complementary tool for assessing species recovery and the impact of conservation. The system reports not only a species’ current recovery status, but also how conservation actions have affected this current status, what we might expect if conservation actions were halted, and how a species’ status might improve in the future with conservation action.
