2012 Student Conference on Conservation Science - New York

The third annual Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York was held at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City from 9-12 October 2012. We welcomed current students, post-doctoral fellows, a small number of undergraduate students, and those who have recently begun working in conservation science.

This year's 260 participants represented 28 countries and 25 U.S. states. Nearly 60 mentors from over 20 institutions within science, policy, academia, and management gave generously of their time, meeting with students, providing written and verbal feedback, leading workshops, and offering guidance. The full agenda included 90 formal presentations (talks, speed talks, and posters), six workshops, two mentor-hosted lunches, two public programs, two receptions, and a resource and career fair.
