Happy Giving Tuesday!


Dear SCB members,

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day in which millions of people contribute to organizations and causes that are making a difference in our world. Since 1985, the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) has been globally recognized and valued for its work in advancing the science and practice of conserving Earth's biological diversity. 

SCB's Global Sections, dedicated topical Working Groups, localized Chapters, and ~4,000 members dedicate their efforts towards creating and applying critically important areas of conservation science to management practices, policy development and educational programs. Likewise, SCB's peer-reviewed scientific journals, Conservation Biology and Conservation Letters, play an influential role in disseminating the latest developments in conservation science.

However, given the plethora of threats and challenges facing our planet today, I believe that the need to unify and amplify the diverse experiences and voices of those involved in conservation is more important than ever. To that end, 2018 will be an exciting year of growth for SCB, as we enhance membership services and build organizational capacity, empower our Sections, Working Groups, and Chapters to build local, national and international capacity, and advance the diversity and collaborative efforts of our members.

To accomplish these advancements, we need your help and I am asking not only for your financial donation to SCB on this Giving Tuesday, but also for you to share your recommendation to others in your circle of influence to consider making a donation to SCB throughout this holiday season.

Thank you for your continued support of SCB! Your contributions will directly advance the science and practice of conserving biodiversity around the world and are greatly appreciated!
