We invite proposal submissions from August 31 – October 27 for the following categories: Symposia, Interactive Sessions, Short Courses, and Workshops. Please read the Proposal guidelines and instructions for each category.

You may create your NACCB 2018 Profile on our user interface and access the forms, guidelines, instructions, and policies.

If you have attended a past NACCB, chances are you already have an account in the system, which will be identified when you attempt to create a new one.  We highly recommend that you use your membership email when creating your NACCB profile (or update it to this one). That way, it will be easy for you to access the SCB member registration rates when they become available.

Not an SCB member? Join today! Be sure to check the box to also become a North America section member – here’s why!

Submit proposals, abstracts, register for the conference, and more, as features become available. Read carefully the Call for Proposals page prior to submitting.

SNAP: Scientific Integrity

SCB North America’s Policy Committee (SNAP) works to strengthen and advance scientific integrity to ensure that scientific knowledge relating to the conservation of biological diversity is used by decision makers when shaping policies that affect the planet’s biodiversity.

SNAP recently convened a transnational team of scientists to identify policies on scientific integrity which should be supported by scientists and scientific societies active on the issue. The result is a new study published in the journal Conservation Biology.

Advancing the science and practice of conserving earth’s biological diversity

The Society for Conservation Biology North America (SCBNA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in affiliation with The Global Society for Conservation Biology. The Society (SCB) is a global community with representatives from over 100 countries. It is organized into seven geographic sections, (including the North American section, SCBNA) that initiate activities relevant to conservation needs in their regions. SCBNA represents the North American continent north of Mexico, including Canada and the United States. Although Mexico is member of the Latin American and Caribbean Section (LACA), SCBNA members collaborate with Mexican colleagues on transboundary conservation issues. SCBNA strives to serve as a ‘boundary organization’ for the North American community of conservation practitioners that can assist members in bridging the gap between research and practice, and make their work more effective in facilitating on-the-ground conservation successes.
