IUCN Report Released: Bonobo (Pan paniscus): Conservation Strategy 2012-2022

This month, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), "the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organization," released a report titled, Bonobo (Pan paniscus): Conservation Strategy 2012-2022 (2013). The 72-page report is available here, as a downloadable pdf. According to the abstract,
[t]he new strategy aims to ensure the long-term protection of bonobos across their range through the implementation of conservation actions designed to reduce, and if possible eliminate, the direct threats and contributing factors that are causing bonobo populations to decline. Given the extremely difficult context (institutional, security, accessibility), particular effort was made to ensure that the choices of strategies and actions were pragmatic and realistic.
