The Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) has just hosted its 25th International Congress for Conservation Biology with over 1300 global attendees converging in Auckland, New Zealand. FISHBIO is very grateful to the local organizing committee and the Society for another fabulous Congress, hosted with great Kiwi style. Researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world shared their work and exchanged ideas. The Mekong Basin made a few appearances, along with Sakhalin Island in Russia (the home of a previous FISHBIO intern). Getting involved in SCB can connect you with a global community of conservationists, and FISHBIO is working to get more freshwater specialists engaged. We encourage you to visit www.conbio.org and learn more, or just drop us a line and we can help you find your niche.
