World Conservation Congress
The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s 2016 World Conservation Congress runs from Sept. 1-10 in Honolulu. The IUCN gathering will bring together thousands of government leaders and decision-makers from around the world, island and indigenous peoples, and environmental advocates, including experts from Pew. Attendees aim to address the global challenges facing the environment.
This collection of Pew resources covers a range of environmental issues, including efforts to increase protections for special places on land and in the ocean, such as the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, the boreal forest, and the high seas, as well as to improve conservation and management of threatened wildlife, including sharks, rays, and penguins.
