Two iconic birds make a striking comeback, but much work remains

  • BirdLife International has revised the information for the conservation status of more than 2,300 bird species this year.
  • Overall, 31 species of birds were moved to lower threat categories, while 58 species were uplisted to higher threat categories.
  • The pink pigeon, which has been downlisted to vulnerable from endangered, and the northern bald ibis, which has been downlisted to endangered from critically endangered, have shown some of the most dramatic improvements.
