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.
