The World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists 108 species of freshwater copepods, all of which are found only in caves or underground springs. Three species are listed as Extinct, or no longer in existence; six are Critically Endangered, or facing extremely high risk of extinction in the wild; 73 are Vulnerable, or facing a high risk of extinction in the wild; six are listed as Lower Risk, or at risk of becoming threatened with extinction in the future, and 20 are listed as Data Deficient, which means there is not enough information to make a judgment about the threat of extinction.
