PRIORITY SPECIES LIST

This is not a comprehensive list, but is a list of species the ASTSG have identified for priority conservation actions and/or further research and assessment. The list does not include all threatened Asian songbird species, but instead focuses on the species whose survival is directly affected by the illegal and unsustainable trade. 

Please note that the list below is currently under review by the ASTSG core team.

It will also be continually updated as new information becomes available.
