The SCB-O Board has revised its Strategic Plan for 2013-2018. We use the vision and goals of the global SCB organisation in its 2011-2015 Strategic Plan, adapted to for our region. We have five main goals in our Strategic Plan (Conservation Science, Conservation Management, Conservation Policy, Education and Building our Capacity). These will underpin our annual work plan. We are keen for feedback from our members on the plan and our direction. We will review our plan each year and adjust our work plan accordingly. Hopefully we will provide members with feedback during the year via the listserver on our activities. We look forward to working with you the future.
