The IUCN/SSC Afrotheria Specialist Group facilitates the conservation of hyraxes, the aardvark, sengis (or elephant-shrews), golden moles, tenrecs, and their habitats by:
- providing sound scientific advice and guidance to conservationists, governments, and other interested groups;
- raising public awareness;
- developing research and conservation programmes.
