Red list assessments of the ca. 1000 European species of grasshoppers, crickets and bush-crickets has started in 2011. The red list status of 60 species has been published in 2012 on the IUCN red list. In spring 2013 a red listing workshop was held in Leiden to coordinate the red list assessments of all European species. We aim to complete the assessments of all European Orthoptera by end of 2016.
