The IPBES report published in May 2019 states that 75% of terrestrial and 66% of marine environments are " severely altered". One million animal and plant species - out of 8 million known - are threatened with extinction.
In the latest edition of the Global Red List (version 2014.2), of the 74106 species studied, 22176 are classified as threatened.
Of these species, 41% of amphibians, 13% of birds and 25% of mammals are threatened with extinction at the global level. This is also the case for 31% of sharks and rays, 33% of reef-building corals and 34% of conifers.
In this assessment, France is one of the 10 countries with the highest number of threatened species: a total of 1048 globally threatened species are present on its territory, in metropolitan France and overseas.
