The fifth annual Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York (SCCS-NY) was held at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City from October 14-17, 2014. We welcomed graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, a small number of undergraduate students, and those who have recently begun working in conservation science.

This year’s 200 conference participants represented 26 countries and 16 U.S. states. Fifty-five mentors—established conservationists in policy, management, and academia from 34 institutions—met with students, offered guidance, provided written and verbal feedback, and lead workshops. The full agenda included 86 formal presentations (talks, speed talks, and posters), eight workshops, two mentoring lunches, two public programs, two receptions, and a resource and career fair.
