ASI welcomes Wildlife Conservation Society as its newest Civil Society member, bringing the number of civil society members to 10, and the total number of ASI members to 62.
WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. WCS envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on earth.
WCS’s goal is to conserve the world’s largest wild places in 16 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the world’s biodiversity.
WCS wishes to support ASI industry members in adopting best practice standards for mitigation of impacts on biodiversity. By contributing to ASI’s Standards Committee, WCS can raise the quality of the Standards and improve industry practices more widely.
