The Berkeley Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology is hosting the 16th Bay Area Conservation Biology Symposium on May 2nd, 2015. Our theme for this year is "Bridging Boundaries for Effective Conservation," which will foster discussion around connectivity across institutions, disciplines, research methods, and landscapes.
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.
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.
This event is open to all Berkeley students and the general public; register online at bacbs2015.com.
