Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York

The 13th annual SCCS-NY, October 3-7, 2022

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

The 2022 Conference

We are excited to announce that the 13th annual SCCS-NY (October 3-7, 2022) will be held virtually and on-site at the American Museum of Natural History! Talks, speed talks, poster sessions, and mentoring sessions will be held virtually, complemented by in-person events and workshops at the Museum. 

Who Should Attend?

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, or early-career professional pursuing or considering the field of conservation science, we encourage you to attend! Whatever your focus—biology, social sciences, medicine, economics, architecture, law—if it has relevance to conservation, we want to include your perspective.
