IUCN Status

Lowest risk category. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Least Concern - Lowest risk category. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.


The IUCN Red List assessments presented here may deviate from the global IUCN listings for the following reasons:

  • for well-known species groups, such as vascular plants or vertebrates, updates proposed to the IUCN are shown, rather than the outdated, but currently-used status;
  • for poorly-known species groups, such as lichenized fungi, a general assessment is not currently possible, therefore the list presented here is the regional IUCN Red List for the Galapagos Archipelago.
