The International Union for the Conservation of Nature's four-yearly World Conservation Congress, concluded in Hawaii earlier this week.

Various conservation and environmental protection motions were passed, with the IUCN saying first steps have been taken on the road to "a sustainable future where nature and human progress support each other".

Yet none of the motions are binding, according to Earth Journalism Network fellow Cain Nunns who has been covering the congress.

He spoke to Johnny Blades who asked him how the congress went.
