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 (e.g. Bern Convention, CITES, EU Directives), UK legislation (e.g. Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981), UK country lists, or having a particular status (e.g. red lists, Nationally Rare or Scarce). JNCC has collated several lists as a downloadable spreadsheet of species' designations.
We do not claim that these lists are 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.
