Discovering the IUCN in Canada: Ariadne Angulo

There are over 500 people in Canada who are actively involved with the work of the IUCN and/or the CCIUCN. Many are members in one or more IUCN Commissions. Others belong to IUCN or CCIUCN member organizations. This occasional series will highlight their IUCN-related work in Canada.

I am Co-Chair of the IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group (ASG), a 270+ member, 7700+ species specialist group with a global and class-level remit. The ASG’s mission is to provide the scientific foundation to inform effective amphibian conservation action around the world. The ASG Secretariat works to coordinate ASG’s amphibian research and conservation activities through three main pillars: the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP), ASG Regional Groups, and the Amphibian Red List Authority.
