Swan Specialist Group website

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the first Wetlands International-IUCN/SSC Swan Specialist Group website! We hope that the website will provide a platform to facilitate effective communication between members and others with an interest in swan conservation and management worldwide.

The Swan Specialist Group is a global network of over 400 swan specialists from 38 countries who undertake monitoring, research, conservation and management of swan populations.

“Many swans cross international boundaries, so it’s only through international co-operation that we can protect them effectively. The Swan Specialist Group helps swan researchers, conservationists and international organisations to work together on joint solutions for the swans and for the important wetland habitats they rely on.” - Dr Eileen Rees, Chair of the Swan Specialist Group
