The IUCN Red List has recently been updated and now more than 1000 Orthoptera species are included in the global red list. These come mostly from the recent activities for the European red list. By clicking on Initiatives – Europe in you can access the European assessments. In January 2017 the European red list of Orthoptera will be formally published.
