IUCN SSC Mangrove Specialist Group
Established in 2013, the IUCN SSC Mangrove Specialist Group (MSG) aims to support mangrove research and conservation projects by bringing together experts in the field to share their knowledge. Hosted by ZSL, the group aims to assess the conservation status of mangroves; identify, quantify and prioritise threats; and develop plans to conserve the most threatened species and habitats.
In 2014, ZSL and the IUCN Mangrove Specialist Group are organising a symposium.
