Conservation resources

The RZSS conservation team regularly contribute to global strategy and management plans for a range of endangered species.

  • Strategic planning for species is one of the three key elements in the assessment-planning-action cycle promoted by the IUCN Species Survival Commission
  • Species Action Plans provide global frameworks developed by stakeholders to foster cooperation, identify priority actions, and inform decisions on allocation of limited human and financial resources
  • Species strategies and action plans also contribute to the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Aichi Target 12 on improving the status of threatened species
