The European Red List is a review of the conservation status of European species according to IUCN regional Red Listing guidelines. It identifies those species that are threatened with extinction at the regional level – this way appropriate conservation action can be taken to improve their status.
summarises results for Europe’s 533 native species of birds. Approximately 13% of these species are threatened with extinction at the European level as a result of threats including changing land-use practices, invasive and alien species and the illegal killing of birds.
The European Red List was compiled by BirdLife International and is the product of a service contract with the European Commission.
