Conserving biodiversity involves addressing three categories: species and their sub-populations; genetic diversity; and ecosystems. Hundreds of projects are underway around the world aimed at saving species and ecosystems and providing the knowledge needed for successful conservation action. IUCN's biodiversity conservation work is carried out by its various programmes including Water, Forests, Marine, Species, Ecosystem Management and Protected Areas.
Conserving biodiversity, as the backbone of all life on Earth and the core of what IUCN does, is the basis for our four other priority areas of work: tackling climate change, sustainable energy, managing nature for human well-being and greening the economy.
