2015 Student Conference on Conservation Science - New York
The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation thanks our SCCS-NY partners:
The sixth 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 29 countries and 15 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 leading conservation professionals, selected participants presented their research through 15 talks, 15 speed talks, and 38 posters. Participants were offered 7 in-depth, interactive workshops on a variety of conservation topics, 4 ‘behind the scenes’ museum collection tours and a Resource and Career Fair with 22 representatives from NGOs, government agencies and universities.
The Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York 2015 was organized by the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at the American Museum of Natural History in partnership with the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Science, the Arcus Foundation, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, and Harvard Forest. The CBC is grateful to the Edgar M. Cullman, Jr. Family, Vivian H. Donnelley, Strachan Donnelley Family Charitable Lead Unitrust, and an anonymous donor for their generous support of the conference. Conference participation of students in the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program is supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
