    1. 1. Red List JOCV 23-1 Takatoshi AKAIK.W.S. Kenya Wildlife Service Malindi National Park
    2. 2. Outline What is Red List? What is happening now? Reasons of species faced to endangered Case Study: Raccoon in Japan Rank of Red List Endangered species in Kenya Case Study: Polar Bear in North Pole Conclusion
    3. 3. What is Red List?  List of endangered species.  Published by IUCN.  156,000 species are listed in 2004.  IUCN In 1948, GOV and NGO gathered and established biggest environmental NGO in the world.IUCN: International Union for Conservation of Nature
    4. 4. What is happening now? According to the report of IUCN, extinction speed caused by human is 1000 times faster than fossil age. If we continue development, extinction speed will accelerate 10 times, compare with today. Now, we conclude treaty to stop mass extinction, such as ・ Convention on Biological Diversity ・ Washington Treaty ・ Ramsar Treaty ・ Law for Preservation of Species
    5. 5. Reasons of species faced toendangered More than half species on the earth are living in Rain Forest For Fur→But… ←For medicine①Habitat loss For pets→② Climate change③ Introduced species ←For food④ Exceed hunting/poaching ( For food 、 ornament 、 commerce, etc…)⑤ Too much nutrient in the water ( water pollution )
    6. 6. Case Study: Japan Raccoon (Arai-Guma) Introduced from USA and Canada. Clever to use hands. People wanted it for pets. because of ANIME.Problem; Raccoon is fury.
    7. 7. Rank of Red List CR High possibility to extinct very soon. EW Extinct in nature, sustain by human. EN High possibility to extinct near future. VU High possibility to endangered. NT No problem now, but could be VU in the future, if habitat change.
    8. 8. Endangered species in Kenya  1 14 species are listed in endangered in Kenya. ● Anthreptes orientalis ● Atoconeura kenya ● Bauhinia mombassae ● Diospyros shimbaensis ● Euphorbia tanaensis ● Ficus faulkneriana ● Galagoides cocos
    9. 9. Endangered species in Kenya  2 ● Gigasiphon macrosiphon ● Lygodactylus grandisonae ● Micrelaps bicoloratus ● Serinus buchanani ● Surdisorex populus ● Synsepalum subverticillatum ● Ziziphus robertsoniana
    10. 10. Case Study: Polar Bear Reason ① Global Warming: Ice berg melt. Difficult to get seals, and also baby bear fell into ocean. ↓ ② Habitat Loss: Get hungry, so search food in human residence. And sometimes hurt people. ↓ ③ Now and Future:    Human use bear-dog and expel Polar Bear from human residence. However, if their habitat losing continuously, polar bear will be extinct in the near future.
    11. 11. Conclusion How can we protect species from extinction?①3R and to reduce using fossil fuel.②To understand what is happening on the earth in the past, now, and future.③To pay attention to movement of the world, such as new treaty, and conference.④And think about species faced to extinct.
