Given the scope and severity of climate change, and the mission of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) and the SCB Marine Section, the IMCC5 Organizing Committee has taken steps to ensure the congress does not become "part of the problem." The recent Paris Agreement was a watershed moment, where a call for action rather than words was made in relation to the cutting and eliminating of carbon emissions. Given the particularly severe threats to ocean environments, IMCC5 should lead the addressing of climate change and ocean acidification. All congress registrations include a contribution to the carbon offset project (opt-out available upon registration). The contribution for developed country professionals is $13. The contribution for students and professionals from developing country professionals and Small Islands States is $5.
More information on the Chairty that the carbon offset will donated to will be annouced in the future. Check back for updates soon!
