CGSG – CONSERVATION GENETICS SPECIALIST GROUP

The CGSG acts as a focal point for the conservation genetics community and provides advice on genetic policy and management for the IUCN and expert knowledge and assistance to IUCN specialist groups (especially those lacking genetic expertise). CGSG will also seek to establish guidelines for pressing genetic policy and management issues, including the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Aichi Target 13. CGSG will facilitate a fuller appreciation, evaluation and conservation of genetic diversity at all levels providing a forum for all stakeholders to explore this crucial element of Planet Earth’s life systems.
