The European Red List of Hoverflies assessed the extinction risk of all hoverfly species native to Europe, and will contribute to guiding decisions and conservation action for these species at the European level. It is part of a continent-wide initiative that aims to raise awareness on the important role hoverflies play in our food systems and biodiversity.
This three-year project (2019-2022) was led by IUCN in close cooperation with the IUCN Species Survival Commission Hoverfly Specialist Group.
Please find below the publication that summarizes the results of the assessment. The publication will be soon also available at the Commission's European Red List webpage. This publication is accompanied by a plan on how how to move from assessment to conservation.
