At the Biodiversity Friends Forum Macaque Watch workshop last Saturday, we briefly discussed the conservation status of the long-tailed macaque.
The volunteers looked up the classifications defined by the IUCN Red List briefly and were able to recall various categories which we matched to a some Singapore species.
Then on Facebook I saw this comic by Rohan Chakravarty at Green Humour which tickled me to no end, because it is both informative and tragic.
He includes the five categories we battle for, from Least Concern to Critically Endangered, skipping the extinct and data deficient categories and makes a significant point:
I think we can use the cartoons in our workshops and we’ll add “Concerned” (anyone who tries) and “Least Concerned”.
