The CBSG falls under the organizational umbrella of the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).
The mission of the CBSG is to save the most endangered species from extinction by increasing conservation efficiency worldwide.
For 40 years, we have done this by using scientifically sound collaborative processes that bring together people with diverse perspectives and expertise to catalyse positive change in conservation. We provide species conservation planning expertise to governments, specialist groups, zoos and aquariums, and other wildlife organisations.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature promotes, through education and conservation, the formation of a commission to lay the groundwork and oversee management guidelines for ex situ conservation projects. The Parques Reunidos Foundation actively collaborates in this endeavor.
