SGA Action Planning
All IUCN SSC Specialist Groups develop conservation strategies for particular species or groups of species. These Action Plans assess the current situation of species throughout their habitats, and – most importantly – lay out the steps needed for their protection. One of the strengths of such Action Plans is that they combine overviews of the species with clear delineations of conservation priorities.
