About the SCB Marine Section
The Marine Section of SCB provides a home for Marine Conservation Biology in order to further marine conservation science, research and public policy. Unlike other SCB Sections, the Marine Section does not have a specifically regional focus as marine issues are global.
Information on the new SCB Marine Conservation Research Small Grants Program is available. Dates for the first call for applications and application directions are coming soon.
The 4th International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC4) will take place Saturday, 30 July - Wednesday, 3 August 2016 in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada (YYT). (There will be pre- and post-conference workshops and activities, as well.) The theme of IMCCs is Making Marine Science Matter.
The 4th International Marine Conservation Congress will feature the new IMCC initiative OceansOnline, an optional add-on day on Thursday, 4 August 2016, aimed to show how internet tools can help ocean scientists and conservationists with research, education and outreach. OceansOnline is inspired by the former ScienceOnline Oceans.
