Conservation designations for UK taxa - collation

The UK spreadsheet of conservation designations lists UK species and their designations, or 'badges'. Badges refer to species listed in international agreements, UK legislation, UK country lists, or which have a particular status (e.g. red list species, Nationally Rare or Scarce species). JNCC has collated several lists as a downloadable spreadsheet of species' designations.

These lists are not fully comprehensive. For example, the spreadsheet does not incorporate all marine species 'badges' or all Schedules in The Wildlife and Countryside Act. Local Red List assessments are not included, and for some categories only selected annexes/appendices/schedules have been added.

The Conservation designations spreadsheet and guidance for its use is available on JNCC's Resource Hub
