Spain is European country with most species at risk of extinction

SPAIN is a European country with an endangered species of plants and animals, according to a recent study analysis.

Data from IUCN The Red Species of Endangered Species show that one of the seven most endangered species (14.51%) in Spain is classified as an endangered species.

Spain was followed by Greece with 14.24% of the endangered species, followed by Portugal with 11.64% and Italy with 11.35%.

Four of the six European regions that are at the top of the study are countries around the Mediterranean.

Although the report shows that half of Spain’s most endangered species suffer from agriculture – and more than a third of residential and commercial housing – most of Spain’s top resorts do not consider man-made products.

Spain was also the country with the highest biodiversity registered for the study (7,549) and found in all European countries (1,297 or 19.77%).

According to Jose Luis Postigo, a researcher at the University of Malaga, the endangered species ‘population is directly related to the population of all species in the world’.

He also said that Spain is on the island, which is probably the most endangered species because it is in danger of extinction because it is not found elsewhere.

According to to the European Commission, the Mediterranean coast is ‘one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world’.

“There are more plant species here than in any other part of Europe.”

In addition, the IUCN Red List lists other species as being at risk of extinction because they are located in the same area – not because their numbers are declining.

For example, the Iberian lynx in 2002 was one of the most endangered cats in the world with only 94 animals left in the world – by 2021, continued conservation efforts have led to that figure. 1,111 in the southern region of Andalucia in Spain.

According to the IUCN, eight species have become extinct in Spain, including:

  • Mediterranean monk seal
  • Eurasian lynx
  • European river laprey
  • Black grouse
  • Lanner falcon
  • Crane crawl

According to Spain’s official state bulletin (BOE) 32 species are known to be extinct in Spain, but have remained in some parts of the world and are important for discussion.
