The Center’s president Gary Tabor gave a presentation in Bonn, Germany on November 12th to representatives of governments and observers at meetings of the global Convention on Migratory Species (CMS). Discussions included how CMS can contribute to international action for ecological connectivity conservation, and Gary’s message highlighted the growing momentum around the world to deliver solutions. Participants were informed about the diversity of initiatives unfolding from local to international levels, and that urgent action can halt habitat fragmentation and species loss by strengthening commitments to maintain, enhance, and restore ecological connectivity.
The Center for Large Landscape Conservation and the IUCN WCPA Connectivity Conservation Specialist Group thank the CMS Secretariat for this gracious invitation. We look forward to increasing cooperation and partnerships across the globe to protect ecological connectivity as the unimpeded movement of species and the flow of natural processes that sustain life on Earth.
