About Molly Grace

I am the Co Chair for the IUCN Green Status of Species, which introduces a new method for assessing successful conservation. Historically, conservation success was measured in terms of the outcome we wish to avoid (extinction) rather than the outcome we wish to achieve: the recovery of populations carrying out their ecological roles throughout their indigenous range. The Green Status provides objective criteria to assess progress toward full species recovery. I am based at Oxford University at Washam College and as a Research Associate in the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science.
