Partners and Credits

The production of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ is made possible through the active participation of the Red List Partners and their respective networks. The growing number of species covered by the Red List represents an enormous investment of time, expertise and financial resources by a large number of individuals, and collaborating partners. IUCN gratefully acknowledges the contributions, dedication and commitment from the extensive network of volunteers who make the production of the IUCN Red List possible.

Compilation and production of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ would not be possible without the financial support of many donors. IUCN would like to thank all the donors who have generously provided funds to support this work, and in particular would like to acknowledge the ongoing financial support from The Rufford Maurice Laing Foundation and the MAVA Foundation for Nature Conservation (MAVA Stiftung für Naturschutz / Fondation pour la Protection de la Nature) that enable the production of the Red List.
