These rankings come from the Conservation Data Centre and are based solely on the organism’s status within British Columbia. A simplified view of this ranking system includes Red-listed and Blue-listed species.

Category Description
Red-listed includes species which have been been legally designated as Endangered or Threatened under the Wildlife Act, are extirpated, or are candidates for such designation
Blue-listed includes species not immediately threatened, but of special concern because of characteristics that make them particularly sensitive to human activities or natural events
Exotic includes species that have moved beyond their natural range as a result of human activity; also known as introduced or non-native species
Unknown conservation status of these species is unknown
