SSC Members' Area

How to become an SSC member

Specialist Groups and Task Forces are composed of experts who volunteer their time to represent and do work on behalf of the Species Survival Commission (SSC).

The Chairs of the Specialist Groups and Task Forces are the driving force of all SSC groups. They provide leadership, guide the activities of their Group and have responsibility for the overall governance, conduct, administration and activities of their Group.

Membership of a Specialist Group and therefore of SSC is at the invitation of the Chair of a Specialist Group and should you wish to be considered as a member you should contact the relevant Specialist Group Chair.
