A list of topics and sites that talk about "living organisms from any source, including but not limited to terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are a part" present in our world at all levels of organization (from genes to more complex forms).
In practice, all biodiversity, that is, those living beings that we are used to calling "different". We believe it is important to introduce this category as it is fundamental for the life of the whole planet to have the full awareness of what is around us and what is being done in the world to preserve and / or destroy it.
Suffice it to say that we still do not know how many living species exist on earth: several scientists claim 2 million, another 3 million and according to some 100 million. It is essential to have a precise knowledge of the exceptional value that biological diversity is as the extinction rate of the different species is rising to almost incalculable levels compared to those that would have been expected if the natural habitats had been preserved and this it involves a destabilization of all existing ecological systems.

IUNC Red List of Threatened SpeciesThis is the so-called red list of endangered species. It is the most authoritative and important document that exists today in which the species (animals or plants) that are at risk of extinction are highlighted. The taxonomy, population status, geographical spread, environment and ecology of each species are provided, what threatens its survival and the actions that must be taken for their conservation. There is also information on extinct species. All the different species are categorized into: extinct, extinct in the wild, critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, threatened, less concern, lacking and unassessed data.
