Abstract: Species at risk are relatively easy to identify. Saving them is another matter. There are few success stories. With increased human populations, and consequent demands for more space and more resources, there will be an ever increasing number of species at risk. Our current conservation strategies are largely ad hoc, unintegrated, and ineffective. They must be replaced with new strategies focused on saving species at risk in the context of functioning ecosystems, if there is to be any measure of success. We need to assess the effectiveness of current protected areas, and land use planning. Our conservation planning needs to be revised and revitalized. This could be done with some clearly stated objectives, using GIS-based heuristic algorithms. It could establish a minimum set of essential conservation areas, based upon the principles of irreplaceability and complementarity. It could document what we have so far achieved, and what needs to be done in the future...
