2016 World Conservation Congress
Aloha and welcome to the website for the effort to bring the IUCN 2016 World Conservation Congress to Hawai`i.
The World Conservation Congress is organized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and held once every four years to bring together the global conservation community to network and share with each other in the world’s largest and most diverse conservation event. Living in Hawai`i with one of earth’s highest concentrations of endangered species, we truly appreciate the importance of the IUCN’s mission of conservation.
To host the 2016 World Conservation Congress would be an unparalleled opportunity to welcome the world’s conservation community to the U.S. and Hawai`i, and also a chance for Hawai`i to share with the world our biological diversity and vibrant indigenous culture.
We are a community-based effort that has broad support throughout many sectors of Hawai`i and we welcome you to explore this site and to contact us about how you can support this important undertaking.
Me ke aloha no,
Chipper Wichman, Director and CEO
