About the International Congress for Conservation Biology

SCB's 28th International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB 2017) will focus on Insights for Sustaining Life on Earth, responding to the need for conservation science to help create a better tomorrow for both biodiversity and people who depend upon it. 

Conservation science must inform local, national, and international efforts for effective, just, and enduring conservation of biodiversity. Accordingly, ICCB is more than just a forum for showcasing the latest in conservation science. It’s also a place to address the greatest conservation challenges of our time, for training early-career professionals, and for catalyzing conservation action.

We welcome participants interested in conservation science and its application to policy and practice. We invite researchers, students, agency personnel, environmental educators, practitioners, and other conservation stakeholders to join us for lively discussions on the nexus between biodiversity conservation and genetics, ecology, biogeography, anthropology, history, psychology, economics, conservation marketing, religion, and more.

Please be aware: the Society for Conservation Biology and Conservation Biology journal are not associated with the WASET conference called ICCB 2017: 19th International Conference on Conservation Biology planned for April 2017 in London, UK.
