National Assessments

Countries around the world often undertake conservation assessments at the national scale in order to gauge their contribution to conservation and report on national biodiversity commitments such as the Convention on Biological Diversity. Such assessments can help a country to determine whether their environmental stewardship is adequate for the species within their borders. Although most countries follow the IUCN Categories and Criteria, others modify them based on their own needs, and some even take on their own assessments independent of IUCN protocols.

Working list of national conservation assessments of seahorses, pipefishes, seadragons, and their relatives coming soon. Please stay tuned.
