Asian Species

Advancing Knowledge

Successful conservation relies on in-depth understanding of species and ecosystems. To underpin conservation efforts for Southeast Asia’s wildlife, it is essential that better knowledge and data are gathered and disseminated.

As long as gaps in the data for Southeast Asia remain, the chances of species being wiped out by accident will continue to be worryingly high. The highest priority is to complete and maintain data for two key International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Standards: the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and Key Biodiversity Areas.
