Threatened Species of the Day Website from IUCN
To coincide with the International Year of Biodiversity 2010, to increase awareness of the huge variety of life and to raise the profile of threatened species, IUCN has launched The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species “Species of the Day”.

Each day in 2010, a different species will be featured as Species of the Day on the IUCN and IUCN Red List websites. The species will be selected from across all taxa, representing all regions and detailing the threats to their existence.
Three cat species have been nominated for inclusion by the IUCN Cat Specialist Group. They have selected a small cat from Asia, Africa and South America.

The African golden cat will be profiled this week on Wednesday 27 January, and the marbled cat on Wednesday 3 February 2010. You will find the profiles here. Be sure to check it out to learn more about the world's most threatened species.
