The International Conservation Vision 2020 sets WSF direction and priorities for conservation of Caprinae outside of North America, with primary emphasis on conservation of Asian wild sheep populations. This strategy articulates WSF’s vision, mission, and purpose in prioritizing how resources will be applied to assist wild sheep conservation and management worldwide. The International Conservation Vision 2020 is a dynamic draft that will be adjusted, as necessary.
The taxonomy of some Caprinae species is confounded due to a lack of consensus between countries, among scientists, and conservation organizations; WSF prefers the CIC classification system for Caprinae. WSF works closely with CIC, Safari Club International Foundation, and other partner organizations to conserve and manage wild sheep and their habitats, globally.
