NACCB 2020 and COVID-19 Updates

Updated 5/15/2020

After carefully monitoring the situation around COVID-19 over the last 2 months, NACCB 2020 organizers and the Society for Conservation Biology North America have made the decision to include a comprehensive virtual component to the conference, with the potential for a hybrid in-person/virtual event in Denver, depending on recommendations from health experts prior to registration re-opening in June. We are excited for the opportunity to host an engaging and interactive virtual or hybrid NACCB!

Additional details on the format and schedule will be posted in the coming weeks. A new NACCB 2020 registration form will open in June with reduced virtual registration fees at 1/3 of the onsite rates across all registration categories and additional need-based financial assistance will be available while funds last.

Please stay tuned for more emails and announcements about virtual and/or hybrid NACCB 2020 in the coming weeks. In the meantime, all session organizers, accepted abstract authors, registrants, exhibitors, sponsors and other partners will receive specific communications on how participating virtually will impact next steps.

If you have any questions, please email

We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility during this process and we look forward to sharing more news about NACCB 2020 soon!
