There is an urgent need to prioritise conservation action for ASAP species, in particular because many ASAP species are not the focus of any conservation attention.

ASAP catalyses conservation of ASAP species which leads to greater and more effective conservation outcomes. We do this by supporting and promoting information exchange, collating and tracking information on ASAP species and calling for the conservation status of species in the region to be kept up to date.
