Welcome to the website for the BES Conservation Ecology Special Interest Group.

The Conservation group provides a platform for facilitating exchange between theoretical ecologists, applied ecologists and practitioners interested in conservation issues. The Conservation Ecology group is open to all BES members and non-BES members with an interest in conservation.

The aims of the group are:

  • Hold collaborative meetings and workshops to highlight emerging challenges and/or conceptual and methodological advances relevant to conservation.
  • Facilitate the production of syntheses relevant to conservation and policy whilst supporting the BES journals to communicate practical messages to the widest audience possible.
  • Encourage and support early career researchers as a growing network of people interested in conservation science.
