Bird data of Namibia: conservation status

As part of Namibia's first Red Data book on birds, all species of birds occurring in Namibia were evaluated against a set of IUCN conservation criteria to determine if they warrant special attention. The list of species below are those that met one or more of the criteria set by the IUCN for inclusion into the Red Data book, or have subsequently been uplisted - such as Secretarybird which was recently uplisted to Vulnerable, and Ludwig's Bustard which was uplisted to Endangered by BirdLife International in 2010.
