Our Role In Conservation

WRS is proud to support the IUCN Species Survival Commission

By supporting the IUCN SSC WRS, alongside with some of the best Zoos and nature organizations globally, contributes to the conservation of biodiversity at its highest efficiency level. By supporting the work of the IUCN SSC we support at the starting point for the conservation action that is needed to save the building blocks of nature from extinction. Through the IUCN SSC we are participating in providing a straight forward way to factor biodiversity needs into decision-making processes and with that contribute to deliver results where they are most needed.

IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organisation, with more than 1,200 government and NGO Members and almost 11,000 volunteer experts in some 160 countries. IUCN supports scientific research, manages field projects all over the world, and brings governments, NGOs, the UN and companies together to develop policy, laws and best practice.

With biodiversity loss as one of the world’s most pressing crises, and many species declining to critical levels, the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) drives its efforts and expertise to conserving nature through positive and informed action. For over 50 years, SSC has provided the conservation and development communities with the information and tools needed for sound decisions about species, ecosystems, and the people who depend on them.
