Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York

The Marshall M. Weinberg SCCS-NY - October 5-8, 2021

As a part of the only international series of conservation conferences featuring students, SCCS-NY provides opportunities for emerging scientists to professionally network, gain experience, and present and get feedback on their work. Interactions with peers as well as leaders in science, policy, and management will encourage collaborations, inspire further research, and create lasting professional connections.

“This is the only conference where I’ve seen mentorship being provided to students, and this is absolutely amazing. The feedback is very helpful and a chance to talk to mentors during lunches and during breaks is extremely valuable.”                 - Ph.D. Student

SCCS-NY 2018 presenter

Who Should Attend?

If you're currently an undergraduate or graduate student, postdoc, or have worked in conservation for three years or less since finishing your last degree, we encourage you to participate! Whatever your focus—biology, social sciences, medicine, economics, architecture, law—if it has relevance to conservation, we want to include your perspective!

The 2021 Conference

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and per SCCS-NY's contingency planning guidelines, the 2021 SCCS-NY will shift to running entirely virtually. Days 1-3 will run as originally planned, filled with virtual talks, poster sessions, mentor cafés, online workshops, and a special SCCS alumni panel event. Day 4 programming will now pivot to online: the networking-leadership skills event and all Friday workshops will be held virtually, via Zoom.
