Redlist Revival identifies and promotes success to inform and inspire us all in sustaining life.

To achieve this the charity provides THREE products:

The Life Circle that shows us the balance between the needs of the earth and mankind,
• the Sustainable Life Indicators that provide us with the information, in an accessible and understandable format, that we need to achieve that balance, and
• The Life Map that connects our actions consistently, between individuals, governance, education and society

… for today’s generations – and tomorrow’s.

Today’s needs

To identify and promote success in sustaining life, our three products are linked by SIX core functions:

Awareness to enable people to show their interest in sustainable life
Engagement for people to see where data has been submitted
• Acknowledgement to promote success in communities across the UK
Research to quantify features associated with different performances
Governance to meet approved standards and inform policy
Education to support the curriculum, higher education and adult life

… for today’s generations – and tomorrow’s.

Sustaining life

Sustainable life is the responsibility of each and every one of us and you can…

• Register your interest in sustainable life through The Life Circle and receive details of the Land in your community and, in due course, the human population.
• Receive details about the international targets within the Sustainable Life Indicators to which we are committed and see how they relate to you
• Collect and submit data for benchmarking against the first national performance standards for use in The Life Map that presents performance at community level whilst protecting your identity and location

The system has already connected a number of previously disparate datasets and, so far, has the formal endorsement of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, the British Trust for Ornithology and the Board of Natural England.

The primary focus (and material) is on the Life on Land Indicator addressing the foundation that the natural world provides for our lives. The material for the other 15 Indicators will follow in due course.

The Life Circle balances the needs of the Earth and mankind. The Life Circle uses the Sustainable Life Indicators and The Life Map to promote sustainable life for the benefit of today’s generations – and tomorrow’s Register to receive details about the broad habitats in your community and your part of the population.

Each of the 16 Sustainable Life Indicators has detailed information about it individual contribution to sustainable life.
Each Indicator also has information about its relationship within each sector and throughout The Life Circle

What are the Sustainable Life Indicators?

The Sustainable Life Indicators are the things that really matter in life. They relate to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals but are presented in a simple and sequential format that is relevant to the way we live our lives.

The Sustainable Life Indicators aim to provide ‘open data’ that is both publicly accessible and also publicly understandable.

Through The Life Map people are able to contribute data whilst protecting their exact location and identity whilst publicly demonstrating the collective contributions of Communities towards protecting and enhancing sustainable life for the benefit of today’s generations – and tomorrow’s.

This is how our actions are consistently connected between individuals, government, education and society at national, county and community level.  It also connects the different components of sustainable life.


This is about the proportion and area of each of the six Broad Habitats at national, County level and scroll right to see Community level.

How it works

The Land Map shows the percentage and actual areas of Broad Habitats within the cities, towns and parishes allocated to each 10km x 10km Community in The Life Map. The information is drawn from the Land Cover Map 2007 produced by the Natural Environment Research Council and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology. Land use either influences or is influenced by every Sustainable Life Indicator and satellite imagery is now being produced at an increasing resolution and increasingly accessible to provide quantitative assessments and the ability to measure change.

We have the capability to produce Sub Habitat maps showing the next 20 land uses that align with the formal UK Habitat Classification and international reporting. The maps can also quantify linear features such as hedgerows and watercourses as well as including the World Protected Areas identified within the United Nations Environment Programme.

People Map

This is about the population density, gender and age profile at national, county and community level.  We look forward to creating this in due course.

How it works

This People Map will show the relative population density, gender and age profile at national, county and community level.  The data source is available through the Office for National Statistics and will provide the foundation for quantifying the different human needs.


This is about the area of land managed by people registering an interest in sustainable life at national, county and community level.  Currently all land registered has an interest in Life on Land.  The population details will follow in due course.


This is about the area of land at national, county and community level where surveys have been undertaken using standard methodologies so that performance can be compared against national benchmarks. Scroll right to see example of Certificate presented to individuals and right again for County reporting.


This is about the sites receiving national Sustainable Life Awards.  Currently this covers Life on Land and the number of bird species where data submitted has shown abundance of numbers exceeding the national, approved threshold in the UK benchmark. Scroll right to see species where national abundance threshold has been exceeded and right again for example of Award for individuals.


This is about collecting further data about the features associated with the most successful sites, and the other levels of performance.  This is starting with decisions regarding habitat management and will lead to other quantifying of features associated with success.


This is the number of organisations with which we are discussing our programme, how it will help with their objectives, and further materials we are in the process of designing.  It includes different levels of government and commercial and non-commercial organisations.


This is the number of people we reach to ensure all of us, through primary or secondary education, higher education and research, and throughout adult life, acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote human responsibility for sustainable life.


This details the funding that has been received for Counties and scroll right for future requirements.
