Conservation of Biodiversity
The Species sub-goal measures the average status of conservation of marine species using data on their risk categories (i.e. how many are categorized as endangered or threatened). The reference point for this sub-goal is for all species within a country to be categorized at very low levels of extinction risk, or “least concern” on the IUCN’s (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) Red List, and for none to be listed as vulnerable, threatened or endangered. It is important to recognize that this score represents a small sample of existing marine biodiversity, since IUCN data currently only exists for about 10% of known marine species and at least three times as many species are estimated to exist but have not yet been described.

About this score

The score is highest when all native species in a given country are free from risk (invasive species are excluded), and it is 0 when up to 75% of native species are at high risk (this is a level comparable to prehistoric mass extinctions).
Current Score
The current score indicates that the desired reference point has not been achieved and that there is a potential risk of losing a proportion of marine species diversity.

risk of extinction data is available for about 25% of the species Israeli med
