Conservation Status

Six of the eight species of bears are endangered.  There are thought to be as few as 10,000 sloth bears.  The IUCN1 Red List, which lists all rare species, classes the sloth bear as ‘vulnerable’.  This means the species ‘faces a high risk of extinction in the wild in the near future’.
