Donors to the SSC

Donors to the SSC Conservation Communications Programme and Dolphins, Whales, and Porpoises: 2002-2010 Conservation Action Plan for the World’s Cetaceans The IUCN/Species Survival Commission is committed to communicate important species conservation information to natural resource managers, decision-makers and others whose actions affect the conservation of biodiversity. The SSC’s Action Plans, Occasional Papers, newsletter Species and other publications are supported by a wide variety of generous donors including: The Sultanate of Oman established the Peter Scott IUCN/SSC Action Plan Fund in 1990. The Fund supports Action Plan development and implementation. To date, more than 80 grants have been made from the Fund to SSC Specialist Groups. The SSC is grateful to the Sultanate of Oman for its confidence in and support for species conservation worldwide. The Council of Agriculture (COA), Taiwan has awarded major grants to the SSC’s Wildlife Trade Programme and Conservation Communications Programme. This support has enabled SSC to continue its valuable technical advisory service to the Parties to CITES as well as to the larger global conservation community. Among other responsibilities, the COA is in charge of matters concerning the designation and management of nature reserves, conservation of wildlife and their habitats, conservation of natural landscapes, coordination of law enforcement efforts as well as promotion of conservation education, research and international cooperation. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) provides significant annual operating support to the SSC. WWF’s contribution supports the SSC’s minimal infrastructure and helps ensure that the voluntary network and publications programme are adequately supported. WWF aims to conserve nature and ecological processes by: (1) preserving genetic, species, and ecosystem diversity; (2) ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable both now and in the longer term; and (3) promoting actions to reduce pollution and the wasteful exploitation and consumption of resources and energy. WWF is one of the world’s largest independent conservation organizations with a network of National Organizations and Associates around the world and over 5.2 million regular supporters. WWF continues to be known as World Wildlife Fund in Canada and in the United States of America. The Ocean Conservancy (TOC). The mission of The Ocean Conservancy (TOC), formerly the Center for Marine Conservation, is to protect ocean ecosystems and conserve the global abundance and diversity of marine wildlife. Through science-based advocacy, research and public education, TOC informs, inspires and empowers people to speak and act for the oceans. In all its work, TOC strives to be the world’s foremost advocate for the oceans. With its headquarters in the US, The Ocean Conservancy provides invaluable in-kind and funding support to the marine work of SSC. The Ocean Park Conservation Foundation (OPCF) was founded by the Ocean Park Corporation in 1993. OPCF aims to advocate and facilitate the conservation of marine mammals and their habitats in Asian rivers and coastal waters through scientific studies and education. For more information, please visit their website at www.opcf.org.hk. The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). IFAW’s mission is to improve the welfare of wild and domestic animals throughout the world by reducing commercial exploitation of animals, protecting wildlife habitats, and assisting animals in distress. IFAW seeks to motivate the public to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote animal welfare and conservation policies that advance the well-being of both animals and people. The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) is a global voice for the protection of cetaceans and their environment. The objectives of WDCS are to reduce and ultimately eliminate the continuing threats to cetaceans and their habitats, and to raise awareness of these wonderful animals and the need to protect them in their natural environment. The Wildlife Conservation Society International Program believes in the intrinsic value of the diversity and integrity of life on earth and in the importance of wildlife and wilderness to the quality of human life. WCS saves wildlife and wild lands by understanding and resolving critical problems that threaten key species and large, wild ecosystems around the world. 1
