What is the Red Book?

When the phrase “Red Book” is pronounced, a large volume in a red thick cover is immediately displayed. We all know that the Red Book contains rare species of animals on planet Earth. And what else can you tell about it, what is the Red Book?

As we wrote a little higher, the Red Book is a large list of all living beings and plants that are on the verge of extinction and require protection and protection. Such a book can also be called a list of objects of nature that need to be protected. All plants and living creatures that are in the Red Book fall under state protection, therefore, it is strictly forbidden to hunt animals or tear "red" plants. Even an accidental violation of such rules can lead to very big problems up to criminal punishment.

The necessity of the appearance of the Red Book arose from the fact that many species of animals and plants began to be destroyed uncontrollably. Industrial construction, hunting, extermination of many species of plants and living beings - all this led to the fact that at the moment many species simply do not exist.For example, before the existence of the Red Book, there was a constant hunt for whales, as they are an invaluable source of fat. As a result, some species of whales are now represented only by a pair of individuals around the globe.

The first edition of the Red Book was published in 1963 and has been constantly updated since.
