Working with partners from SEFARI, we have developed a world first genetic diversity indicator for wild species. We use a scorecard approach for wild species of cultural and socio-economic importance to promote long-term conservation of genetic diversity and address Aichi Biodiversity Target 13.
Of the 26 species assessed in this report:
- 14 species were classed as being at negligible genetic risk;
- Eight species were classed as being at moderate risk, with effective mitigation in place for five of these;
- Four species were classed as being at risk of severe genetic problems.
