The Student Conference on Conservation Science (SCCS) – Australia will bring together 100 post-graduate students from the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere to develop their skills and forge lasting professional relationships in this, the most biologically and culturally diverse region in the world. With successful initiatives expanding from Cambridge and into Bangalore, New York, and now Brisbane, the SCCS is the only international series of conservation conferences aimed entirely at students. The purpose of SCCS – Australia is to build a network of early career conservation science professionals across the Asia-Pacific region, and to provide training in skills and tools for regional conservation scientists.
There are still some places left. So if you are a student interested in the conservation sciences get in quick and don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to learn from and interact with other students. There are also going to be some great workshops including an Introduction to the statistical software package R, lead by QAECO’s own Will Morris and John Baumgartner and an Introduction to Bayesian statistics lead by QAECO heavyweight Mick McCarthy. See you there!
