The First Regional Red List Assessment of Selected Species in the Kingdom of Bahrain

The regional assessment of the Kingdom of Bahrain is considered the first of its kind to assess the current status of selected species using the guidelines and techniques adopted by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It was undertaken with the participation of a panel of national experts.

The panel compiled a list of 29 priority species which they believed should be the first batch of species to be evaluated according to the IUCN Red List Regional Assessment Guidelines. Out of the 29 species proposed for evaluation, 23 were actually evaluated; the remaining six were not evaluated due to lack of data.
