International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) - The World Conservation Union

The World Conservation Union was founded in October 1948 as the International Union for the Protection of Nature (or IUPN). It supports and develops cutting-edge conservation science; implements this research in field projects around the world; and then links both research and results to local, national, regional and global policy by convening dialogues between governments, civil society and the private sector.
