World Species Congress

15 May

The World Species Congress, hosted by Reverse the Red, will amplify our collective conservation efforts and facilitate critical connections that accelerate our impact for species. Reverse the Red is a coalition of organizations, groups, and agencies co-chaired by IUCN Species Survival Commission and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, committed to accelerating and amplifying successful species recovery efforts through collaboration, innovation, and national capacity support.

196 countries committed to the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, agreeing to meet Target #4 by 2030, where: Threatened species are recovering, genetic diversity is being maintained and human-wildlife conflict is being managed.

The World Species Congress offers a forum for collaboration and a roadmap for success for anyone striving to create a healthier planet. We will celebrate and learn from successful strategies, tools, and partnerships in order to replicate, amplify, and accelerate action.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, registration for the World Species Congress is free for everyone who wants to participate. You’ll have access to:

  • the 24-hour live stream
  • live chat discussions with presenters post-presentation
  • downloadable resources, tools, and strategy frameworks
  • next steps in training and collaboration, taking your conservation work to the next level

In place of a registration fee, your response to a few questions will help us shape the experience of the World Species Congress to create the most impactful agenda possible. The registration form will let us know who is participating and where you are from. It will also help connect you to relevant tools, contacts, and interests. Finally, it will later allow us to know if the Congress has achieved its goals to inspire, to provide you with replicable models for success, and to connect you with applicable knowledge products and actions to accelerate your conservation impact.
