The biennial North American Congress for Conservation Biology represents an important facet of SCBNA’s work to foster communication among conservation scientists and practitioners in North America. Nereus fellow Gerald Singh, who is on the board of the North American section of the Society for Conservation Biology, will be representing the Nereus Program at this event.

This event brings together conservation professionals and students working across a wide variety of disciplines and institutions for discussion, innovation, and opportunities in science. The goal of NACCB is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing new research, developments, and strategies that will inform policy changes and conservation practices to address today’s conservation challenges. Most importantly, these conferences connect our regional community of conservation professionals and serve as the major networking outlet for anyone interested in conservation in North America.

Our attendees are concerned with the science and practice of conserving biological diversity. NACCB is continental in scope, bringing together conservation professionals and students from every sector of the field including the biological and social sciences, management, policy and planning. Attendees work for universities, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, First Nations, private foundations, and publications. They are scientists, students, managers, decision-makers, writers, educators, and other conservation professionals from throughout the world. Many come to present, learn, discuss and enjoy the incredible networking opportunities of this event.
