The ZSL Award for Outstanding Contributions to Conservation recognises individuals who have made exceptional, long-term contributions to the conservation of wildlife and habitats. ZSL is delighted to present the award to Simon Stuart, Chair of the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Species Survival Commission. Simon has been pivotal in shaping the species work of IUCN into a global force for nature. Amongst his many achievements, Simon has been central to the development of categories and criteria for The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species; producing the first-ever assessment of the conservation status of world’s amphibians; contributing to the development of criteria for listing species on the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES); advising governments about the formulation of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets; influencing a host of international biodiversity-related policy negotiations; and creating strategic relationships between non-governmental organisations, governments and the private sector to promote holistic approaches to conserving biodiversity. His vision and leadership have been endorsed by his colleagues and peers at the SSC, where he has twice been elected as Chair. Simon is one of the most prominent figures in international species conservation in the world today and ZSL is delighted to honour him with this award.
