I found something that you guys would probably find interesting.

Notable changes include-

1. IUCN finally separated the Galapagos giant tortoise into 9 different species. Two of these are extinct. One is extinct in the wild. Two are critically endangered. Two are endangered. Two are vulnerable.
I wonder if cloning could eventually help these species come back?

2. Whale shark is endangered now. I think this was news here. Was vulnerable.

3. Winghead shark is now endangered. Was near threatened.

4. Bornean orangutan is now critically endangered. Was endangered.

5. Leopard now considered vulnerable, was near threatened

6. Reindeer/Caribou is now considered vulnerable, was least concerned (matches the game now)

7. Walrus is now considered vulnerable, was data defecient (also matches the game)

8. Koala now Vulnerable, was least concerned

9. Platypus is now near threatened, was least concerned.

10. Eastern quoll is endangered now. Was near threatened.

11. Six rock wallabies were considered more threatened than previously

12. Atlantic horseshoe crab now vulnerable, was Near Threatened.

Now the good news ones.

12. Indiana bat now near threatened, no longer endangered.

13. Rusty spotted cat now near threatened, was vulnerable.

14. Darwin's fox now endangered, no longer critically endangered.

15. Frilled shark now least concerned, was near threatened.


Expect this IUCN list to be updated more as the year continues!

Actually many more have increased, I just included some big names. There was a Hawaiian plant that was rediscovered, so it went from extinct to critically endangered!

Biophilia man, Even if it's only an hypotesis,but still, people that are more genetically set to feel empathy for other creatures are needed more than ever in these days, since the majority of humantity didn't care and carry on.

But...

-As most of us know Pandas are no longer endangered. They were downlisted to vulnerable.

-Eastern Gorillas were uplisted to Critically Endangered.

-Eastern Quolls were double uplisted to Endangered after being Near Threatened.

I'm not slow! That's just my moe!

Red squirrels increasing isn't a good thing by any means as they are an invasive in many areas, and wild boar, wild dogs, and raccoons are still overpopulated so a decline would be a good thing.

That being said all of that is complete gibberish so... report troll?

Carlos Armstrong, do you have any source for your claims ? Because some of them sound rather vague and hard to believe, not to mention the reasons you listed (Illegal hunting doesn't threaten all those species, and what does "getting friendly" even mean ?)

Since when are "dog breeds" a species? And how in the world are they decreasing and threatened? They are like the most common pets in the world.

Bison are definitely getting friendlier.
