Title: The World Conservation Union
Url: http://www.iucn.org/
Publisher: IUCN--The World Conservation Union
Description: Headquartered in Gland, Switzerland, The World Conservation Union (IUCN) was founded in 1948 as the International Union for the Protection of Nature. Today, it is a network which brings together 83 nations, 110 government agencies, and 10,000 scientists and experts. For anyone with the remotest interest in conservation, this site will be quite a find, and one that might be worth returning to multiple times. From their homepage, visitors can learn about their latest research findings, which include everything from reports on the economic contribution of drylands to their annual investigation into at-risk species around the world. A series of tabs near the top of the homepage will help visitors navigate to sections that include "Our Work", "Commissions", "Regions", and "Get Involved". Users looking for research reports and general interest newsletters will want to click on over to the "Publications" area, which includes access to their in-house magazine, "World Conservation Magazine". Additionally, visitors can sign up to receive RSS feeds from the site.
