The Student Conference on Conservation Science series in Cambridge, Bangalore and New York is the only international series of conservation conferences aimed entirely at students. SCCS helps young conservation scientists gain experience, learn new ideas and make contacts that will be valuable for their future careers. Over the past 12 years, we have hosted over 1,900 delegates from 110 countries worldwide. The thirteenth conference in the Cambridge series will be held from 20 – 22 March 2012, in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, UK.
The conference is designed for young conservation researchers from biological, environmental and geography departments of universities as well as conservation and resource management agencies. As well as attending presentations, conference delegates can take part in workshops, which cover skills such as paper-writing, fund-raising, social science tools, and much more. Other events include evening sessions where delegates can meet conservation professionals from leading UK and international conservation bodies.
