IUCN/SSC Reintroduction Specialist Group

Day after day, an increasing number of animal and plant species are becoming rare, or even extinct, in the wild. In an attempt to re-establish these populations, species can – in some instances – be re-introduced into viable habitat. The Re-introduction Specialist Group (RSG) manages a Secretariat and network of global voluntary members and aims to provide re-introduction practitioners with tools such as re-introduction guidelines, networking resources and publications to provide a means for distributing information on re-introduction projects.

Our mission

To combat the ongoing and massive loss of biodiversity by using re-introductions as a responsible tool for the management and restoration of biodiversity through actively developing and promoting sound inter-disciplinary scientific information, policy, and practice to establish viable wild populations in their natural habitats.
