2010 Student Conference on Conservation Science - New York

In early November 2010, the American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation hosted the Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York (SCCS-NY). Designed for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early-career professionals, the conference specifically targeted those pursuing or considering a profession in conservation science.

We welcomed more than 400 participants from 34 countries and 27 states within the U.S.  Among these were 153 presenters (31 talks, 36 speed talks and 85 posters), some 74 mentors from 33 institutions, and an ambitious agenda that encompassed more than 18 hours of presentations, seven workshops, three hosted lunches, two receptions, and evening program, speed-mentoring event, and career fair.

SCCS-NY provided a unique opportunity for those beginning their careers to present their work before established leaders in science, policy, and management. In addition to formal presentations, there were numerous opportunities to interact with senior-level conservation professionals at workshops, information gatherings, and networking events.
