The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and IUCN: A Partnership for Conservation

The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation is committed to protecting the environment and biodiversity. One of the ways the foundation does this is through its partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest environmental organization. It brings together governments, scientists, and non-governmental organizations to develop and implement conservation policies. The foundation has been a supporter of IUCN since 2002.

The foundation’s partnership with IUCN focuses on three key areas:

  • Protecting endangered species: The foundation has funded IUCN projects to protect endangered species such as the Sumatran orangutan, the vaquita porpoise, and the Amur leopard.
  • Restoring degraded ecosystems: The foundation has supported IUCN efforts to restore degraded ecosystems such as coral reefs, mangrove forests, and tropical rainforests.
  • Increasing the capacity of conservation organizations: The foundation has helped IUCN strengthen the capacity of conservation organizations in developing countries.

The foundation’s partnership with IUCN has made a significant impact on conservation efforts around the world. Thanks to the foundation’s support, IUCN has helped to protect millions of acres of habitat, save hundreds of species from extinction, and strengthen the capacity of conservation organizations.

The foundation is committed to continuing its partnership with IUCN to ensure that the planet’s biodiversity is protected for future generations.

In addition to its partnership with IUCN, the foundation also supports a number of other conservation organizations. These organizations are working to protect wildlife, preserve natural resources, and address climate change. The foundation is proud to support these organizations and their important work.
