The RSG coordinates and publishes various general, taxon and species-specific re-introduction guidelines. Each of these guidelines can be accessed by clicking the relevant link.
A. Re-introduction Guidelines
Guidelines for Reintroductions and Other Conservation Translocations
These guidelines are designed to be applicable to the full spectrum of conservation translocations. They are based on principle rather than example and are designed to provide guidance on the justification, design and implementation of any conservation translocation.
Call number: IUCN-2013-009
B. Andean Bear Rehabilitation Guidelines
C. Best Practice Guidelines for the Rehabilitation and Translocation of Gibbons
D. IUCN Guidelines for Confiscated Animals
i. IUCN Guidelines for the Placement of Confiscated Animals
These guidelines were formulated to address the placement of increasing numbers of animals being confiscated from illegal and irregular trade worldwide. It was approved by the 51st Meeting of IUCN Council in February 2000.
E. RSG Guidelines for Non-human Primate Re-introductions
This set of guidelines covers the main steps in the reintroduction of non-human primates. It is based on the existing framework of the IUCN Guidelines for Re-introductions with specific reference to primates.
F. IUCN/SSC AfESG Guidelines for the in situ Translocation of the African Elephant for Conservation Purposes
African elephants (Loxodonta africana) are being confronted by large-scale habitat loss and degradation and increasing incidents of human-elephant conflict. To address these issues, this set of guidelines was developed in conjunction with the African Elephant (AfESG), Re-introduction Specialist Group (RSG) and Veterinary Specialist Group (VSG) to provide a set of "best-practices" for translocating African elephants.
G. Guidelines for re-establishing grey partridge through releasing
In the UK, numbers of grey partridges have declined by over 80% during the last 25 years, and in many parts of the country the species has become locally extinct.These present guidelines provide specific advice to assist the recovery of the grey partridge where numbers have fallen below self-sustainable levels or where it no longer exists.
H. Guidelines for Guidelines for the Re-introduction of Galliformes for Conservation Purposes
The guidelines for the Re-introduction of Galliformes for Conservation Purposes have been compiled by WPA and the IUCN/SSC Reintroduction Specialist Group and have just been published by WPA and IUCN.
