Conserving cacti and succulents worldwide
The Cactus and Succulent Plants Specialist Group
Welcome to the home of the Cactus and Succulent Plants Specialist Group (CSSG)!
We’re a global network of volunteers working towards the conservation and sustainable use of cacti and succulents. We currently have members in Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, and South America.
The CSSG is part of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)'s Species Survival Commission (SSC); the IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest international conservation organisation, and the global authority on both the status of the natural world and the measures needed to protect it.
