19th Student Conference on Conservation Science

Date: 27 March 2018 - 29 March 2018
Location: University of Cambridge

The Student Conference on Conservation Science series in Cambridge, Australia, Beijing, Bangalore, New York and Hungary 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 17 years, SCCS Cambridge has hosted over 2,800 delegates from 128 countries worldwide.

Who can attend?

The conference is designed for young conservation researchers from biological, environmental and geography departments of universities as well as conservation and resource management agencies.

Talks and posters

Each day the programme starts with a plenary lecture from a leading conservation scientist, and is followed by around 10 student talks. About 100 students also present their work at the three poster sessions.

Workshops and networking

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.
