    The IUCN identifies “critically endangered” as meaning the population of a species has declined or will decline 80% within three generations.

    The IUCN puts together the definitive list of endangered species, ranking their threat level from “least concern” to “extinct.” One of the possible rankings is “extinct in the wild,” meaning that there are no longer any individuals of that species that survive in the wild, and the entire population is in captivity. This is an extremely precarious position for a species to be in, not only because of small population numbers but also because the tiny size of the gene pool will put a great deal of strain on the species as attempts are made to rehabilitate its population. Several examples of these kinds of species include the Hawaiian crow, the Guam rail, and the socorro dove.
