I wonder if that isn't an out-dated reference because since 2007, with colony collapse disorder, I think honey bees are no longer in the least-concern category. (They are not on the wikipedia list for least concern). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alisar (talk • contribs) 12:11, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
i think so.. because there are BILLIONS of us and compare to least rated there are just a bit less then 8000. shouldn't we be on this...?
"Least Concern (LC) is an IUCN category assigned to extant species or lower taxa which have been evaluated but do not qualify for any other category."
Isn't this kind of redundant? I mean, you could say that about ALL living things on earth. (Except for humans, apparently.)

Hello fellow Wikipedians,
I have just modified one external link on Least-concern species. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:
- Added archive https://web.archive.org/web/20160128190606/http://jr.iucnredlist.org/documents/redlist_cats_crit_en.pdf to http://jr.iucnredlist.org/documents/redlist_cats_crit_en.pdf

You may set the
|checked=, on this template, to true or failed to let other editors know you reviewed the change. If you find any errors, please use the tools below to fix them or call an editor by setting

On the list or not
The last paragraph starts: While "least concern" is not considered a red listed category by the IUCN, the 2006 IUCN Red List still assigns the category to 15636 taxa I find this impossible to interpret. In my reading it means the species is both on the list and not on the list. Could someone please rephrase or expand this so that it is more clear what LC means? --Ettrig (talk) 10:55, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
