Red List

Red List

ASG is the designated Red List Authority for antelopes and is therefore responsible for assessing the Red List status of antelopes and other species within its remit, in line with the SSC programme. The last full assessment took place in 2016-2018 as part of  the Global Mammal Assessment. Species may be reassessed at any time in response to major changes in status. ASG maintains datasheets on all threatened antelope species and updates them regularly .

Details of the Red List Categories and Criteria, guidelines for their application, and further details of the process may be found on the Red List website https://www.iucnredlist.org/

For the current Red List status of antelopes see the table.

Three antelope species have gone Extinct since 1500, Bluebuck, Saudi Gazelle, and Yemen Gazelle.

One species, Scimitar-horned Oryx, is Extinct in the Wild, but will soon be recategorized due to a highly successful reintroduction programme.

Four species are Critically Endangered and 9 Endangered, the two highest categories of threat. 15 species are Vulnerable.

28 antelope species (30%) are currently categorised as ‘Threatened’
