We call on zoos, botanical gardens, aquariums and museums to scale up their commitment to species conservation.

Our Pledge: 

We, the members of IUCN Species Survival Commission, reaffirm our commitment to saving species and their

populations. We pledge to step up our efforts and engage with all stakeholders. We will strive for a sustainable future

for people in a world in which species are highly valued for their intrinsic worth as well as the benefits they provide.

We commit to providing knowledge and implementing action for species conservation. We pledge to bequeath the

wonderful diversity of species to future generations.

This was the call for urgent and effective action to address the unprecedented, unsustainable and growing impacts on wild species from human activities by the more than 300 species conservation experts at the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Species Survival Commission Leaders’ Meeting in Abu Dhabi, 6-9 October 2019.
