Global sharks and rays have been in decline and increasingly under threat of extinction since 2014, according to a new red list issued Saturday at a global conference to rescue dwindling species.

The Komodo Dragon is now at risk primarily due to rising sea levels and rising temperatures in its Indonesian habitat.

The IUCN Conference in France reported that the trees included eponies and rose forests in danger of logging, with the list being compiled for the first time during 2009.

There are signs of hope: a set of quotas have enabled several species of tuna to “path to recovery,” under the conditions of the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Communication on fish rights.

The main message of the IUCN’s International meeting on wildlife conservation, which opened Friday in Marseille, France, is that extinction and ecosystem destruction are no less existential threats than global warming.

Overfishing, loss of habitat and climate change account for the uptick, they said.
