IUCN is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018 and, with growing momentum to meet ambitious global goals, the wind toward sustainable development is finally at our backs. But there is no time to lose. Species are going extinct at alarming rates. Climate change is threatening communities, economies and the ecosystems on which they depend.
No one government or organisation can correct humanity’s course alone. With 70 years of experience, vision and impact, the world needs IUCN’s diverse and powerful Union more than ever.
