20 August 2012 | News story

IUCN deeply mourns the loss of Martin Schneider-Jacoby who worked at IUCN Member EuroNatur since its foundation. We will all remember Martin as a truly passionate, inspiring person with a genuine sense for nature conservation. 

Always on the move, Martin has built an immense legacy over time. He was instrumental in creating numerous protected areas, launching major conservation initiatives, always participating in countless field projects.

Martin was one of the pioneers of IUCN presence in the Balkans. His vision contributed to the setting up of the IUCN Office for South-Eastern Europe in Belgrade, Serbia. We feel it is now our task to take up this great legacy and let it live up to Martin’s expectations.

Thank you for everything. Your spirit will always shine as a beacon.
