The Argentine Species Survival Center is an alliance between the Species Survival Commission of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN SSC) and Fundación Temaikèn. Its mission is to promote biodiversity conservation strategies in Argentina and Latin America, by connecting key actors to strengthen local and regional capacities and promote the evaluation, planning and implementation of conservation actions in the region to achieve the goal of Reverse the Red. One of the main objectives of the CSS-ARG is to identify species conservation priorities in Argentina and Latin America through the use of consistent and globally recognized tools. Among the prioritized lines of work of the Center, it has been established to position the ex-situ conservation strategy in accordance with the IUCN 2021-2025 guidelines. One of the first steps was to bring together more than 50 specialists from 22 NGO organizations, zoos, universities, and government agencies to assess the relevance of ex-situ conservation strategies for threatened species in Argentina, identify needs, and outline future actions. This space made it possible to establish a consensus on the need to give continuity and revalue the contribution to ex-situ conservation as part of an integral approach that is essential to carry out efficient actions for the conservation of species in the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. The promotion of intersectoral and multidisciplinary participation meetings with government agencies and other civil society organizations has also been prioritized, and the creation of a technical construction platform to identify needs and future ex situ actions for these species. There are emblematic success stories in the world and more and more efforts in the region to be able to share many of these significant steps for the conservation of species. These cases also serve as inputs to establish recommendations that allow establishing sustainable and replicable policies.
