    The Canid Specialist Group (CSG) of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the world's chief body of scientific and practical expertise on the status and conservation of all canid species. The CSG is composed of 75 experts, representing over 30 countries. All CSG members are actively involved in canid conservation and research, and serve as honorary advisers, bringing with them the experience and the knowledge gained in their professional careers.
