SECREATRY BIRD & HOODED VULTURE NOW GLOBALLY THREATENED
Posted on the 17th June 2011
FYI - Following the recent release of the 2011 IUCN Red List update, you will note that two of the big African birds (Secretarybird and Hooded Vulture) were up-listed to join the list of globally threatened species. Further, 4 species in the islands of Sao Tome & Principe were uplisted to higher threat categories (3 joined the list of globally threatened species). In fact the Principe Thrush is now considered Critically Endangered, the highest level of threat.
