The 25 largest un-fragmented wilderness Areas in the Arctic
United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre

The main purpose of this project was to explore where the last remote wilderness areas, resorts for nature, man and biodiversity can be found in the Arctic, as well as the pressures they are subjected to and their main threats. Since the Arctic Environment Protection Strategy (AEPS), the awareness of large undisturbed areas in the Arctic has grown, as well as the realisation of the threats and the speed of fragmentation.

1996 IUCN Red List of Threatened Animals
International Union for Conservation of the Nature and Natural Resources

The Red List of Threatened Animals is a warning flag, signaling for global attention to the perilous status of many species. In its approach, this Red List is different from all its predecessors and the existing Red Data books. It employs a more rigorous system for assessing degree of threat of extinction, a system reflecting current knowledge in population biology in relation to conservation concerns. This more objective approach should help focus attention on the causative factors behind the diminished geographic ranges, declining populations, and small numbers that characterize endangerment in many species.
