Conservation Leaders Endorse Razan

Razan is a committed conservationist, a natural leader, and an excellent public speaker. She is deeply committed to IUCN, and I am supporting her campaign to become President of the Union.

Simon Stuart,

Director of Strategic Conservation, Synchronicity Earth and former SSC Chair

I have known Razan very well for a long time. She has supported Roots and Shoots both globally and founded the first Roots and Shoots in the UAE. She is a conservation leader for the next generation. I am happy to endorse her candidacy for IUCN President.

Dame Jane Goodall

Founder, The Jane Goodall Institute

Razan will make a great IUCN President. She understands conservation from both process and policy perspectives. Her experience in leading a large government agency, as well as a donor organization and an NGO gives her a unique and sophisticated perspective from which to lead the IUCN.
