September 14, 2021: Conservation Discussion Group Welcome Session


September 14, 2021: Conservation Discussion Group Welcome Session

The Conservation Discussion Group (CDG) meets every other week on Tuesdays to discuss any and all things conservation-related. Speakers and participants from many departments across UBC, and from inside and outside academia are invited to try to broaden our exposure to conservation ideas and practices. To give you an idea of conservation topics, last year we introduced the CDG/Conservation Science Initiative Spotlight series (which we plan to bring back) and addressed anti-racism in ocean sciences, and conservation across many scales of research. More details about past meetings are available on our website: https://zoology.ubc.ca/conservation/.

This year, CDG will start with meeting by Zoom, but when conditions allow, we’ll have hybrid meetings to accommodate Zoom participants and those who want to meet in person! Meetings will be every other Tuesday from 3-4pm, starting with a welcome session next Tuesday September 14th. We’ll send out a Zoom link later in the week to the CDG listserv – you can subscribe by sending a message with ‘subscribe’ in the subject line to ‘conservation-request@zoology.ubc.ca‘.
