The main objectives of the IUCN SSC Spider Specialist Group are to assess the extinction risk of a representative sample of arachnid species globally; assist on international law and agreements (e.g., Habitats Directive, Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species - CITES); contribute towards national and regional legislation protecting threatened species; develop scientifically sound species conservation strategies in cooperation with relevant authorities; and promote the public knowledge of arachnids.
