In 2013 the IUCN Guidelines for Reintroductions and Other Conservation Translocations (available in several languages under downloads) were launched to support policy - makers, managers and practitioners in the conservation of imperiled species. These guidelines are based upon, but differ significantly from, the 1998 IUCN Guidelines for Reintroductions. RSG seeks to further the understanding and application of these guidelines to promote responsible conservation translocations, particularly in global regions where such techniques may currently be rare but have high conservation potential.
In May 2015 RSG partners from the Durrell Trust, Zoological Society of London, Otago University, Oxford University, and the Calgary Zoo met to explore the development of potential training, certification, and facilitation programs. By completing the following 10 minute survey by August 20th, you will help us to strategically prioritize your needs (Please also note that overall results may be used for scientific publication purposes). Thank you in advance for your contribution.
