The Society for Conservation Biology Oceania is hosting its 5th Oceania Congress for Conservation Biology in Wellington, New Zealand. The conference, which takes place from July 3-5 2018, is an opportunity for scientists, managers, students, and other conservation professionals to meet, discuss, and share new findings and opportunities to address conservation challenges. Four members of our group will be presenting their work at this important conference (and getting to experience the beauty of New Zealand to boot!) in the Modern National Museum, Te Papa, in New Zealand’s “Natural Capital.”
