This week (July 21-25): The International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB) holds its bienniel meeting of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB), the world’s largest professional society dedicated to the science and practice of conserving Earth’s biological diversity.
Close to 2,000 scientists, including conservation professionals and students, policy experts, and government officials are attending ICCB, making it an ideal venue for journalists to cover the latest in conservation research, trends, news and policy. Some of the biggest topics in conservation will be discussed and presented at ICCB, including illegal wildlife trade and traffic, resource extraction, climate change, human-wildlife conflict, regional and national conservation policy, and more.
- Is there a directory of participants?
- Is there live and recorded video of presentations?
- What would locals like visitors to know about Kuala Lumpur?

It's been almost two decades (gulp!) since I was in KL to visit Malaysian friends, incl. Yusoff & Ida, who used to live with us when I was growing up in Illinois. Last night we saw each other again. Wonderful reunion & another reason I'm so happy #ICCB2019 in KL. @Society4ConBio pic.twitter.com/xlYU7rthrz

Addressing the underlying #genomic traits relating to inbreeding depression in #kākāpō which manifests in high rates of hatching failure is hugely important according to @Birds_py #ConSERTeam @UCNZscience: >50% failure across the population. #ICCB2019 @OSNZBirdsNZ pic.twitter.com/oLacv4Gg6B

Great talk from @KitaAshman about habitat use by Koalas in eucalyptus plantations. Highlights that we need to conserve habitat for this (and other!) iconic Aussie species #ICCB2019 pic.twitter.com/qI1JcroepG
