New Guidelines on conservation translocations published by IUCN

As the world’s biodiversity faces the incessant threats of habitat loss, invasive species and climate change, there is an increasing need to consider more direct conservation interventions.

In response to this complex aspect of conservation management, the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) Reintroduction Specialist Group (RSG) and Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) have revised and published the IUCN ‘Guidelines for Reintroductions and Other Conservation Translocations’. …

Mali's Warzone Elephants

The year–long and now escalating conflict in Mali poses a real threat to the Gourma Elephants, so WILD Foundation, an SOS grantee, has adjusted its planning and on-the-ground work to anticipate issues that may arise. Originally awarded a Rapid Action Grant by SOS to train and deploy mobile anti-poaching teams, this activity has been put on hold until the conflict in the region calms down. Meanwhile the following article is an adaptation of an original blog post written by Dr. Susan Canney, Project Leader with the Mali Elephant Project in association with Nomba Ganame, Project Coordinator on the ground in Mali outlining other activities initiated by WILD Foundation. This article addresses the impact of the conflict on the elephant range; the status of the anti-poaching efforts and how the project is adapting through mobilising the young men of the area.   …
