Susan Leopold and Alison Ormsby from United Plant Savers/Sacred Seeds attended the 2016 International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress in September in Honolulu, Hawaii. The World Conservation Congress is only held every four years. This year’s gathering brought 9,000 people from around the world together to discuss conservation successes and challenges, and set goals for the future. The IUCN is a well-known global conservation organization, based in Switzerland, that sets international conservation policy and produces the Red List publication that assesses that status of species.
