What are Mammals?

Mammals include humans and all other animals that are warm-blooded vertebrates (vertebrates have backbones) with hair. They feed their young with milk and have a more well-developed brain than other types of animals.


What is IUCN Red List?

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List uses a set of precise criteria to evaluate the extinction risk of thousands of species and subspecies. In this Blog, I’ll show the process of creating a dashboard based on IUCN Red List Data.


Dashboard Creation

a) Divide mammals by Habitats Type

The terrestrial animals are the most.

b) Add the orders of mammals

In the Taxonomy System, Kingdom Animalia is the largest of the five existing kingdoms on Planet Earth. The scientific classification system is divided into seven major groups, (1) kingdom, (2) phylum or division, (3) class, (4) order, (5) family, (6) genus, and (7) species. Order is ranked right after the class. Mammals are one of the classes of animals.

c) Show their status

It’s good news that most of the mammals are in the least concerned status.

d) Arrange the Layout and Finalise the Dashboard
