Hello Tweeters,
"In the most recent Red List of Threatened Species, published last
December, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed
the snowy owl’s status, for the first time, as “vulnerable,” after research
showed that the adult population had decreased to 28,000, down from 200,000
in 2013. The IUCN cautioned that if the rate of decline “proves to be even
higher, the species may be eligible for further uplisting to ‘endangered.’”
