The 6th International Marine Conservation Congress

To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science and use it to inform policy and management to catalyze change. The International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.

With over 700 marine conservation professionals and students in attendance, IMCC is the most important international event for anyone involved or interested in marine conservation. The meeting brings together marine conservationists from many walks of life including but not limited to scientists, practitioners, educators, policy-makers, artists and journalists.

IMCC6 takes place in the sailing city of Kiel, Germany. Join us in Kiel as we come together to help Make Marine Science Matter!
