    I'm the last flower, I'm almost gone.
    I'm shouting protect me.
    Put me in the Red Book.
    But they are not saving me.
    But in response, I hear People saying they are are saving extinct fish!

    Is it a real world list/book, or is it just a colloquial term for the set of endangered species?

    WIKI has in my opinion the best answer for that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IUCN_R...ical%20species.
    and while it does not say anywhere explicit that is is a book that has a red cover,as far as i know it is indeed one. Russia also has one of her own.https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/...ederation.html
    and when clicking through the pics here, you can see that each and every country has one of its own . and at least a red cover.. https://images.search.yahoo.com/sear...g&action=click
    though most of the time it is a coloquial term used for a list of endangered or even extinct or on the threat of extinction, flora and fauna of the world.

    well i was not so far off with my 10.000 ruble note. read the last sentence. Though now with all those ATM hassles, with the new 100 ruble note,wonder if all that will be over i n3 years time?

    adding new...
    and while doing a quick round with Jhinn the dog, something just did not leave me alone. We HAVE the 5000 ruble note and also the 1000 rubles already... so why would they write -next year-?
