CD stands for conservation dependent. "Vulnerable," "endangered," "critically endangered," and "extinct in the wild" are to its left.

A conservation-dependent species is any plant, animal, or other living thing that would become endangered or die out if human beings did not help it. It is a conservation status. The IUCN Red List is one group that decides which species are conservation dependent and which are not.

Some conservation-dependent species live in zoos or aquariums. Others live in places that park rangers and other people protect from illegal hunters. So some conservation-dependent species are extinct in the wild and others are not.
