DATA INSIGHTS

Species Protection Index (SPI)

AVERAGE AREA OF SPECIES DISTRIBUTION UNDER PROTECTION

SPI measures the average area of species distributions in protected areas in a country and provides a measure of how many wildlife species and how much of their habitats are under protection. It is developed to quantify biodiversity loss and improve the conservation status of wildlife species and habitats. The Aichi Biodiversity Targets (orange dotted line in the plot) serves as a benchmark for countries to conserve at least 17% of national terrestrial and inland water areas (particular importance for biodiversity and ecosystem services) by 2020. Each dot in the plot represents a country and its SPI score (Y-axis). Countries at the bottom with the relatively poor score are behind in terms of species protection when compared to the countries at the top of the graph.


As of 2018, nearly all countries are not on track to achieve the Aichi Biodiversity Targets. In order to achieve the global Targets, increasing financial and technical support to assist those countries lagging behind in terms of species conservation is one key area of action.


SPI use remote sensing data, which can help to track changes in ecosystems on a large scale with improved efficiency and standardization. However, remote sensing and aerial photography are limited in their ability to assess all changes in biodiversity. Thus, assessment of certain measures of biodiversity still requires human-assisted data collection a process often hindered by a limited number of professionals with adequate funding.

No. of Bird Species threatened

NUMBER OF THREATENED BIRD SPECIES PER COUNTRY

The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List is a crucial indicator for tracking progress and achieving the SDGs. This indicator evaluates the status of endangered species and provides a list of endangered and threatened species around the world. Each dot in the plot represents a country and the number of bird species threatened in each country. This plot uses threatened bird species to demonstrate how human activity impacts on wildlife. 


Brazil and Indonesia both have over 150 threatened bird species, far more than other countries around the world. They also have the highest level of deforestation for resource extraction, agriculture, and urbanisation. Together they hold nearly 35% of the world’s tropical forest and are home to more than 30% of the world’s known bird species.  According to BirdLife, agriculture is the biggest threat, affecting 1,091 species (which is 74% of all threatened species). Logging is the second leading threat against birds and impacts 734 species (50% of all threatened species). (World Bank, 2017; BirdLife, 2018)
