Pakke Tiger Reserve Birds' Check-list

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature, in short IUCN, has been maintaining IUCN Red List of Threatened Species since 1964. It is recognized as the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of all biological species. While mentioning about IUCN Red List, the official term 'threatened species' is popularly used referring to a group of three categories: Critically Endangered, Endangered and Vulnerable. 'Critically endangered' species means extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. 'Endangered' refers to mean high risk of extinction in the wild. 'Vulnerable' means high risk of endangerment in the wild. And finally, 'near-threatened' refers to mean likely to become endangered in the near future.


Total number of bird species recorded: 256

Number of globally threatened species found: 4
