#IMCC5 Press Room
To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science, and use it to inform policy and management, and ultimately to catalyze change. The Society for Conservation Biology's International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy. Organized by the Society for Conservation Biology’s Marine Section (SCB Marine Section), IMCC is recognized as the most important international meeting for marine scientists, marine conservation professionals and students. IMCC is global, bringing together professionals, organizations, government agencies and universities from around the world. The theme of IMCCs, Making Marine Science Matter, is featured throughout the Congress.
