About the Swan Specialist Group

The Wetlands International / IUCN SSC Swan Specialist Group (SSG) is a global network of over 400 swan specialists from 38 countries who undertake monitoring, research, conservation and management of swan populations.

The SSG strives to facilitate effective communication between members and others with an interest in swan management and conservation world-wide, in order to improve national and international links for cooperative research, to identify gaps in knowledge and to provide a forum for addressing swan conservation issues.
