The NZTCS provides a method to list any wild species according to its threat of extinction.

The long-term goal of the NZTCS is to list all species that exist in New Zealand according to their threat of extinction.

It is made up of manuals and corresponding taxa status lists. The status of each species group (birds, plants, reptiles, etc.) is assessed over a 5-year cycle.

Find out how we assess our species using the NZTCS, which outlines nationally understood and consistent categories and criteria to determine risk of extinction.

The next round of listings will be notified on the current consultations pages. You can also subscribe to updates of our new science publications, including the NZTCS.
