An animal with the conservation status of Lower Risk is one with populations sufficiently high so as to ensure its survival in the long run. Animals with this status do not qualify as being Vulnerable, Endangered or Critically Endangered.
This classification is sub-divided into three types:
- Conservation Dependent - where cessation of current conservation measures could result in it being classified at a higher risk level.
- Near Threatened - close to becoming Vulnerable but not meeting the criteria.
- Least Concern - where neither of the two above apply.
