Become a Member
All Australian based international members of IUCN are automatically invited to join ACIUCN and get involved in our strong and growing local network. Our Members and Associates are a diverse group of over 30 organisations and individuals including government, NGOs and Indigenous People’s organisations, working towards a shared vision for nature conservation in Australia.
How to become a member of IUCN
If your agency or organisation is not currently a Member of IUCN, we invite you to join this global community. IUCN Membership is open to States, government agencies, NGOs, Indigenous Peoples’ organisations and academic institutions working in fields related to conservation or equitable and ecologically sustainable development. Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis. For more information on IUCN membership including membership dues, visit www.iucn.org.
ACIUCN membership fees
ACIUCN is a small organisation with a modest budget and capacity. As an independently funded organisation, we rely on the financial support of our Members and Associates to enable us to continue our work to serve Australia’s IUCN network. Funding is provided in the form of membership dues, partnerships and in-kind support. Our Membership dues are reviewed every few years and are kept modest to ensure that they do not act as a barrier to membership, whilst facilitating the committees work. Membership rates vary depending of the size and scope of your organisation or agency.
2018-2020 ACIUCN Membership dues
Please see the table below for all membership dues. It is important to note that ACIUCN membership dues are separate to the dues paid for global IUCN membership. ACIUCN’s membership fees contribute specifically towards facilitating the work of the Australian Committee for IUCN.

Join an IUCN Commission
While only organisations and agencies are eligible for IUCN Membership, individuals who want to play a role can make a significant impact by joining any of IUCN’s six expert Commissions.
This global network of expert volunteers plays a major function in driving IUCN’s conservation and sustainable development work by providing vital knowledge, expertise and policy advice, while making it easier for Members to connect with the resources and support they need.
