Red List, Green List!

No, silly, it's not a new twist on an old schoolyard game. 

The IUCN Red List, in case you didn't know, is the world's most comprehensive inventory of conservation statuses of threatened and endangered species.

In other words: bad news.

But now, the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) is mobilizing to create a Green List, which will catalog and, essentially, congratulate conservation efforts that are succeeding in bring species and their habitats back toward long term sustainability.

In other words, good news--at last.
