2017 Student Conference on Conservation Science - New York


The eighth annual Student Conference on Conservation Science - New York took place at the American Museum of Natural History October 11-13, 2017. Over 300 students, postdocs, and early-career scientists, got together at the museum to take part in the only international series of conservation conferences featuring students.

Emerging conservation scientists were provided with opportunities to present and get feedback on their work, gain experience and make contacts to help them launch their careers. In addition to plenary talks, panel discussions and mentorship from leading conservation professionals, selected participants presented their research through 96 talk, speed-talk, and poster presentations. Participants were offered 9 in-depth, interactive workshops on a variety of conservation topics, 6 ‘behind the scenes’ museum collection tours and a Resource and Career Fair with 26 representatives from NGOs, government agencies, and universities.
