“It is with pleasure that I wholeheartedly endorse Razan Al Mubarak as the next president of the IUCN. Her accomplishments and outstanding leadership over the past decades in addressing specific issues and raising awareness about the urgent need to protect and restore wildlife and natural areas across the globe have helped change the way the public and international leaders view the fundamental importance to humankind of safeguarding nature. She has an extensive background in conservation organizations including WWF and has served as Secretary General of Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi. Razan's ethics, intelligence, and heart will serve IUCN well as we navigate our way through a complex and challenging future. She is the right person at the right time, a time of unprecedented peril — and an unprecedented opportunity for humankind to develop an enduring, peaceful relationship with nature.”
