Student Conference on Conservation Science, Brisbane, Australia
The Oceania Section supports the Environmental Decisions Group at the University of Queensland which held a Student Conference on Conservation Science (SCCS) in Brisbane, Australia in late January 2013 (download the flyer). We raised enough funds to fully cover 30 students from countries that have limited funding options. SCCS represents an enormous opportunity for students interested in conservation research to network and gain valuable skills.
