The Royal Society for The Conservation of Nature

The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) aims to create, manage and advocate for a national network of protected areas to conserve Jordan’s biodiversity and support local community development, while also promoting wider public support and action for the protection of the natural environment within Jordan and neighboring countries.

The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature is an independent non-profit non-government organization devoted to the conservation of Jordan’s natural resources. Established in 1966 under the patronage of His Majesty the late King Hussein, RSCN has been given the responsibility by the Government of Jordan to protect the Kingdom’s natural heritage. As such, it is one of the few voluntary organizations in the Middle East to be granted this kind of public service mandate. As a result of its pioneering conservation work, RSCN has achieved international recognition
