The goal of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is to help "the world find pragmatic solutions to our most pressing environment and development challenges." To accomplish this broad set of goals, they manage field projects across the globe, support scientific research, and also bring a variety of stake-holders together to work on developing meaningful policies and laws. The best way to find out more about their work is to glance over the news stories featured on their homepage. Visitors here will find everything from reports on restoring mangrove swamps in Myanmar to the global population status of different oceanic sharks and rays. After that, it's a short jump to the "What we do" area, which will lead users to a thematic list of all of their projects organized around "Species", "Ecosystems", and "Issues". Next up is the "Resources" area, which presents a formidable array of IUCN position papers, research works, conference documents and so on. Additionally, this area also contains the "Tools for Organizations" section, which offers up a number of "how to guides" that cover conservation management, assessment and monitoring, and conservation policy.
