2013 Student Conference on Conservation Science - New York
The fourth annual Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York (SCCS-NY) was held at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from October 7-9, 2015. Over 200 students, postdocs, and early-career scientists, representing 53 countries and 25 U.S. states, got together at the museum to take part in the only international series of conservation conferences featuring students.
Emerging conservation scientists were provided with opportunities to present and get feedback on their work, gain experience and make contacts to help them launch their careers. In addition to plenary talks, panel discussions and mentorship from 51 leading conservation professionals, selected participants presented their research through 90 talks, speed talks and poster presentations. Participants were offered 7 in-depth, interactive workshops on a variety of conservation topics, and a Resource and Career Fair with more than a dozen representatives from NGOs, government agencies, and universities.
