DAD-IS is the acronym of the World Organization for Animal Welfare of the United Nations .  It includes a searchable database of information about breeds , the Global Databank for Animal Genetic Resources; It also holds tools for management, and contacts for the National and Regional Coordinators for the program.  Data from the Global Databank is used for reporting on the global status and trends of animal genetic resources.
Breeds in the Global Databank
There were 11,116 mammalian national breed populations in DAD-IS as of February 2016, and 3,799 avian national breed populations.  These national breed populations represent a total of 8,822 breeds, which includes 643 breeds (7%) which are reported to be extinct.  7 761 of these breeds are local breeds and 1 061 are transboundary breeds , meaning they are found in more than one region.
17%, or a total of 1 500 out of all breeds (including those that are extinct) are classified as being at risk and 58% are classified as being of unknown risk status. These statuses have been retained since 2014.
