Watch the First IUCN Save Our Species Webinar

By examining our successes and failures, this is the first in a series of webinars that highlights how our various initiatives contribute to Species, Habitat and People.
What makes community livelihoods work? You're invited to the first IUCN Save Our Species webinar

Communities across the world depend on natural resources for their basic needs. To ensure the survival of both people and nature, appropriate livelihood options and the communities’ motivation to implement conservation action have to be considered.

This webinar focuses on what can be achieved, both in terms of biodiversity and livelihoods. It aims to demonstrate how our projects around the world not only implement effective short and long-term conservation strategy, but also build capacity among the conservation community.
