Red List Animals

Managed By: Icon Here Animal Kingdom
Description:
This category is to track and educate endangered and vulnerable animals as designated by the IUCN Red List.
Expanded Description:

The IUCN Red List is a list of plant and animal species put together by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources for the purposes of evaluating the extinction threat of those species.

This category is meant to track where these species can be viewed. In particular, we are interested in tracking animals that are Extinct in the Wild, Critically Endangered, Endangered, and Vulnerable species. These animals can be found in zoos, animal preserves, farms, parks, etc. The main condition is that they must be openly viewable by the general public, even if it is irregular such as in the wild or park.

It is of the utmost importance that no harm is done directly or indirectly to the species or its environment. This category is meant to help grow awareness of the animals and aid in protecting them.

Instructions for Posting a Red List Animals Waymark:

To log a waymark, please ensure that the area has not previously been waymarked. Once that is done get the coords of the viewing area and take a picture, and get any requirements that may be needed in order to view the animals (such as entry fees for a zoo or hours of operation).

Due to the nature of these pictures, a far off picture will be accepted. If you are unable to obtain a closer picture, please provide a link to an additional photo gallery on the web of the animal.

In addition to this, obtain the scientific name of the animal seen and a link to more information about the animal. Any sort of information that you can provide within the waymark about the particular species, including an estimation of how many exist in the wild, would be greatly appreciated.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To visit a waymark, take a picture of the animals (again do not put yourself or the animal in danger to get these pictures) as well as mark the time that they were seen and anything interesting that may have occurred on the visit. Please only log the visit if you have actually SEEN the animal. If the animal wasn't in the vicinity when you visited, it wasn't an actual visit.
