Archived: Preliminary decisions for the 2012 Red List

2012 forum topics provisional decisions

The attached spreadsheet lists preliminary decisions for the 2012 Red List. Please use the filters to look for your region or species group of interest.

There will now be a further final opportunity to make any comments on these decisions, and to add any further information to the discussion topics, before we make final decisions on 16 February, so do please send any further comments before then.

Any discussions of species for which we do not feel we have had sufficient feedback to enable us to make a decision will be held open and we will continue to seek comments on these species for the 2013 update. The species which are likely to be held over (unless we receive further information before 16 Feb) are marked ‘pend’ in the spreadsheet of preliminary decisions.

    Following a paper by Medway (2010), the 2012 Red List will include the addition of an already extinct species: Tongatapu Rail Gallirallus hypoleucus.


    Medway, D. G. (2010) The Tongatapu rail Gallirallus hypoleucus (Finsch & Hartlaub, 1867) – an extinct species resurrected? Notornis 57: 199-203.

    Please note that the posting of final decisions will now be delayed until Monday 20 February to allow the consideration of late contributions.
