Close to 2,000 scientists, including conservation professionals and students, policy experts, and government officials will attend ICCB, making it an ideal venue for journalists to cover the latest in conservation research, trends, news and policy. Some of the biggest topics in conservation will be discussed and presented at ICCB, including illegal wildlife trade and traffic, resource extraction, climate change, human-wildlife conflict, regional and national conservation policy, and more. 

SCB offers complimentary registration to credentialed journalists (reporters, editors, news photographers) who work for a news service or broadcast outlet and who cover the environment, science or related news. Local media who cover business and tourism will also receive complimentary registration. 

Bloggers seeking press credentials must be affiliated with a conservation news site and have a history of posts to their name. Consideration will be given to student writers enrolled in journalism or science communication courses or are involved in producing editorial content for university publications or news sites.
