From the event website:
"Conservation science must inform local, national, and international efforts for effective, just, and enduring conservation of biodiversity. Accordingly, ICCB is more than just a forum for showcasing the latest in conservation science. It’s also a place to address the greatest conservation challenges of our time, for training early-career professionals, and for catalyzing conservation action."
