The 10 days gathering of IUCN World Congress Starts in Hawaii

The world's largest conference on the conservation of nature and natural resources is currently taking place in Hawaii, USA. Known as the IUCN World Conservation Congress, the open ceremony of it's 25th gathering took place at the Neal Blasdell Centre on the theme of 'Planet at the crossroads'.


More than 9,500 participants from 192 countries gathered to discuss the correct utility of natural resources and the way to conserve ecosystem.

The ceremony began the morning of  September 1st with keynote speeches from political leaders including presidents, governors, senators, and MPs addressing an audience of scientists, NGO representatives, students, indigenous peoples and conservative communities from around the world.

During the opening ceremonies, Hawaii Governor David Ige said that, "Hawaii is often referred to as the endangered species capital of the world adding the major issue is due to the global climate change. However, it will be much easier if we all devote to protect our planet".

US secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell also said, "the world must move from random acts of kindness to strategic conservation and to come up with further measures to tackle the scourge of wildlife trafficking. The US is part of the problem and must be part of the solution".

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) was established on October 1948. Members of the congress already met 24 times before and the last conference was held at Jeju, Korea in 2012. The 25th conference holding presently at USA is the first time ever been held at the states and the 100 years anniversary of the national park service of the government.

The 10 days gathering congress is divided into two sessions. September 2-5 as forum/workshop and September 6-10 will be an assembly.

The IUCN Director of general, Anger Andersen said, "ambitions for this conference are very high and it is the largest environmental gathering ever adding to carry out a successful outcome on nature conservation and biodiversity.
