According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) at least 12% of the world’s bird species are threatened with extinction, and an additional 8% are near threatened.

  • This means one of every five bird species could be extinct in the next 50-80 years.
  • This equates to more than 2.000 species.

The primary threats are deforestation, extreme weather events, introduced species and the use of pesticides.

Birds are excellent indicators species and provide valuable insights into how and why the environment is changing. Researchers can measure the changing status of biodiversity and the response to those threats – conservation, new laws or policies, and public knowledge.

Climate change and commercial fishing are threatening penguin populations around the world. They are forced to compete for the fish they eat and the ice they rely on to breed is disappearing.
