Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York

Date: 10/9/2024 - 10/11/2024

Type: Conferences

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): New York


Join us for the 15th annual Student Conference on Conservation Science-New York (SCCS-NY)! This year's hybrid conference will have both virtual and in-person programming. We will host three days of conference events and activities at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC, and virtual attendance will be supported by live-watch parties of presentations, interactive Q&A sessions, and virtual workshops and mentoring sessions.

Conference events include a workshop organized by the Ecological Design Lab at Toronto Metropolitan University, Telling Species Stories: Visualizing Futures for North American Habitat Dioramas, on October 9, from 1:00 to 5:30pm. The legacy of habitat dioramas is undeniable. During this workshop, attendees will dive into collaborative exercises that will reshape the way we view and interpret these iconic displays. Together, we'll craft compelling stories rooted in conservation science and fueled by boundless imagination! This event is OPEN TO ALL, and would especially benefit students across design, conservation, and environmental disciplines.

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, or early-career professional (from anywhere in the world!) pursuing or considering the field of conservation, we encourage you to attend! Whatever your focus—biology, social sciences, medicine, economics, architecture, law—if it has relevance to conservation, we want to include your perspective.

If you are a conservation professional or faculty member, consider attending and contributing to SCCS-NY as a mentor! Providing mentoring for our student and early-career professional attendees is central to the mission of SCCS-NY. Mentors can participate by reviewing abstracts, providing feedback on presentations, and/or hosting a mentoring session or workshop. Opportunities for asynchronous, virtual, and in-person mentoring are available!
