A Call from the Wild
The newsletter of IUCN Save Our Species and the Integrated Tiger Habitat Conservation Programme
From politically volatile landscapes to unforgiving climates, dedicated conservationists are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to protect our planet’s wildlife. Join us as we delve into their projects and learn from their experiences in our latest webinar.
While many conservation efforts occur in relatively stable and hospitable environments, there is a growing need to carry out conservation action in unique and, often overlooked, challenging areas. These environments encompass a wide range of demanding circumstances, from politically volatile landscapes to remote ecosystems strained by harsh climatic conditions.
Extreme environmental conditions, such as relentless heat, cold, and dense humidity pose massive challenges to species, habitats and people. They often undermine sustainable development gains, and combined with political instability, social unrest, and logistical challenges, further complicate conservation action. In these adverse contexts, wildlife conservation assumes exceptional significance, standing as a beacon of hope in the face of adversity.
By sharing lessons learned from IUCN Save Our Species and Integrated Tiger Habitat Conservation Programme projects on the ground, in addition to the expert knowledge of the IUCN Species Survival Commission, this webinar will profile stories of conservation action taking place in challenging conditions. Participants will also share key principles, approaches, and best practices to scale conservation impacts in challenging contexts.
This webinar will be facilitated by Dr David Mallon, Special Advisor, IUCN Species Survival Commission. Full list of speakers and bios coming soon.

IUCN Save Our Species contributes to the long-term survival of threatened species, their habitats and the people who depend on them by supporting civil society organisations. It aims at building the capacity of many of these organisations and communicating about the successes to inspire more people to support this universal cause. This is IUCN’s response to the challenges identified by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ mobilising IUCN’s unique knowledge and expertise of the members of the Species Survival Commission and its many Specialist Groups.
The Integrated Tiger Habitat Conservation Programme (ITHCP) or ‘Tiger Programme‘ is an initiative funded by the German Cooperation via KfW Development Bank,‘ which contributes to the Global Tiger Recovery Programme (GTRP) and the Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) by supporting landscape level conservation work benefiting species, communities and habitats. Coordinated actions enhancing conservation skills, developing new livelihoods and improving governance and infrastructure are delivering results in terms of better protected tigers across these landscapes.
