K3: Status of endemic and globally threatened species in the UK Overseas Territories

In development In development

Short description

UK Overseas Territories are home to rich, globally important biodiversity, with many species found nowhere else in the world. This indicator will track change in the status of key endemic and globally threatened species found in the Overseas Territories.

This indicator is not available for reporting in 2021. Further work is required to develop the indicator. To-date, preliminary work has been undertaken to explore potential sources of endemic species information. This includes the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species.

This table provides metadata for the interim or final indicator presented above.
