Bay Area Conservation Biology Symposium The 16th

May 2015, UC Berkeley

The Berkeley Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology hosted the 16th Bay Area Conservation Biology Symposium on May 2nd, 2015. Our theme for the year was "Bridging Boundaries for Effective Conservation," which will fostered discussion around connectivity across institutions, disciplines, research methods, and landscapes. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success!


This symposium creates a forum in which to share and discuss recent scientific findings and policy issues in conservation biology. Although the primary purpose of this symposium is to showcase graduate student research, we welcome participants from all backgrounds. This an excellent opportunity for Bay Area students and faculty, as well as those working for government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private consulting firms to meet and exchange ideas. The symposium has rotated among different Bay Area universities for over 15 years; if you are interested in hosting the next symposium, we would be happy to provide advice and materials to facilitate!

This event is co-sponsored by UC-Berkeley's Dept. of Environmental Science, Policy, & Management and funded in part by grants from the Society for Conservation Biology Chapters Committee & UC-Berkeley Graduate Assembly.
