The IUCN SSC Threatened Waterfowl Specialist Group identifies which Anseriformes taxa are globally threatened, monitor their status, produce international action plans, and carry out and exchange information on conservation projects on globally threatened Anseriformes. To date, the TWSG has helped bring about about major advances in the conservation of many threatened waterfowl, such as the Hawaiian Goose, Red-breasted Goose, White-headed Duck and White-winged Duck.
