1 Department of Conservation, Wellington, New Zealand

Every three years a national process led by the Department of Conservation (DOC) lists plant, fungal and animal taxa acording to the risk of extinction they face. The next review off the lists for terrestrial invertebrates is due to be carried out in 2013-14. The New Zealand threat Classification System will be briefly explained, the findings of the 2008-11 cycle of listings of terrestrial invertebrates will be reviewed, and information will be provided on information needed for the next review of the lists and how to contribute.
