In September 2016, the ASU Center for Biodiversity Outcomes became an official partner of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. As of February 2020, we are proud to announce the center is an official IUCN member.
Many of the research projects we conduct revolve around ecosystem restoration, reversing the global biodiversity crisis and improving human wellbeing. The IUCN membership provides an exciting platform to interact with other organizations around the globe to discover and implement solutions to alleviate environmental challenges.
The IUCN is a worldwide organization striving to conserve nature by encouraging societies worldwide to use their natural resources sustainably. Through research, advocacy and education, the IUCN aspire to influence the actions of corporations and the government.
Through this partnership, the center joins over 1,300 member organizations in advancing sustainable development.
