Bird Projects & Initiatives
SOS - Save Our Species
Save Our Species (SOS) is a global coalition initiated by the 3 founding partners IUCN, GEF and World Bank to build the biggest species conservation fund, supporting on-the-ground field conservation projects all over the world.
SOS will combine resources and funding experience from the World Bank and GEF (Global Environment Facility), the authoritative science of IUCN and the resources and ingenuity of the private sector to create a mechanism that ensures sufficient funding goes to species conservation projects where and when it will have the most impact.
Birds currently being supported by SOS include the Philippine Cockatoo and the Black Breasted Puffleg.
