Outreach and science communication are key to advancing SCB’s mission of conserving biodiversity on Earth. This is why we partner with like-minded organizations to raise public awareness of science and conservation. 

Skype A Scientist

Inspiring and fostering environmental values amongst the next generation is an important endeavour for advancing SCB’s mission of conserving biodiversity on earth. That's why we are partners with Skype A Scientist. Skype a Scientist creates a database of thousands of scientists and helps them connect with teachers, classrooms, groups, and the public all over the globe. They aim to give students the opportunity to get to know a real scientist and get the answers to their questions straight from the source.

Part of our partnership includes a “Conservation Week”, during which three live stream events focused on biodiversity conservation will be scheduled covering three broad time zones across most of the world (the Americas, Europe/Africa, and Asia/Oceania). This is a great opportunity for SCB members to reach out to the next generation and get them excited about conservation science.

If you are interested in sharing your research and passion for conservation with school classrooms, consider signing up to Skype a Scientist.

Current Conservation Magazine

Current Conservation works with scientists, science writers, and artists across the world to tell written and visual stories from the field of conservation in a manner that engages both scientific and non-scientific audiences.

This partnership seeks to create an opportunity for eliciting submissions from SCB members, as well as to help increase the visibility of this great magazine. Submissions can include written contributions as well as artwork. Additionally, as part of this partnership, Current Conservation welcomes applications for handling editor positions, a great opportunity for graduate students and early career researchers.
