About the GMA

The Global Mammal Assessment (GMA) is a programme carried out at the Department of Biology and Biotechnologies, Sapienza University of Rome, a member of the IUCN Red List Partnership. Our laboratory includes a mix of academics, researchers, graduate students and program officers dedicated to the assessment of mammal extinction risk, the development of mammal distribution maps, and the forecast of scenarios of future mammal loss driven by global change. The tasks of the GMA program include:

  • Monitoring the conservation status of mammals globally and updating the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
  • Prioritizing conservation actions across regions and species to prevent extinctions and foster recovery of biodiversity.
  • Publishing key findings in scientific and general literature to advance the science and policies on mammal conservation efforts
  • Engaing with policy makers to support informed conservation decisions

We aim to support conservation action with the best available data globally.
