All strategies for conservation of biodiversity involve Relationships between local residents who live in the critical Habitat of threatened and endangered species, government agencies,international organizations, and scientists, especially conservation biologists. International Conservation was founded in 1987 by a group of conservationists whose goal was to save endangered places and rare species by finding ways for people to live in balance with nature International Conservation has worked with local communities and formed partnerships with non-governmental organization and corporations to integrate conservation goals into community life and corporate business models.

How they spend their money:
• 84.6% of expenses go towards conservation projects
• 10.2% of expenses go towards administration
• 5.1% of expenses go towards fundraising.

The role of international conservation organizations is a vital one, particularly in terms of brokering international agreements between governments concerned with protecting their national interests. The most far-reaching agreement on biodiversity in recent years is the Convention on Biodiversity, signed by 156 nations at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio in 1992. Many international conservation organizations including WRI (World Resources Institute) and IUCN (The World Conservation Union) contributed to the formulation of the documents signed at the convention.

International conservation organizations play an important role in the wide publicizing of environmental information. IUCN was responsible for the idea of compiling lists of threatened species as a means of drawing attention to the plight of species faced with extinction. These lists became known as Red Data Books. It is point the way for government agencies charged with environmental protection, as well as for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) concerned about maintaining diversity.

IUCN--THE WORLD CONSERVATION UNION
The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources is the most important world body of 74 sovereign states, 105 government agencies, 674 nongovernmental organizations and 32 affiliates, that is concerned with the conservation of nature worldwide. The headquarters of the IUCN is situated at Gland, Switzerland. IUCN is the world's oldest and largest global environmental organization, with more than 1,200 government and NGO members and almost 11,000 volunteer experts in some 160 countries. IUCN's work is supported by over 1,000 staff in 45 offices and hundreds of partners in public, NGO and private sectors around the world.
