European Red Listing of Orthoptera

Red list assessments of the more than 1000 European species of grasshoppers, crickets and bush-crickets are currently conducted, funded by the European Commission. In January 2014 a red list workshop was held in Brussels to train the coordinators of the European red list assessments. We aim to complete the assessments of all European Orthoptera by the end of 2016.
