About SCB

    Founded in 1986, the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) proudly serves as the premier international membership society of professionals, students, and non-profits who dedicate their work towards advancing the science and practice of conserving biodiversity.


    To advance the science and practice of conserving Earth’s biological diversity.


    We envision a world where people understand, value, and conserve the diversity of life on Earth and where SCB, a globally diverse, equitable, and inclusive community of professionals, students, organizations, and supporters, serves as a leading voice for the scientific study and conservation of Earth’s biological diversity.
