Welcome to SCB Student Wiki!

The SCB Student Wiki was established by the Student Affairs Committee (SAC) of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) as a way for students, professionals, graduates and the general public to share relevant information on Conservation Biology.


On the wiki you will find information about - Scholarships, Courses, Events, Advice and Resources intended to be of service to Students, Graduates and New Professionals in the early stages of their career's in biodiversity conservation.
The SCB Student Wiki is a free, open resource that is constantly growing and expanding. Follow us using RSS feeds or on Twitter. To find out more about SAC and SCB check our Wiki's page About us or visit SCB's official web site.

We encourage contributions to the Wiki, so feel free to join and to post info about events, job-openings, course announcement, etc. Updating the wiki is extremely easy, you don't need to know any code, just type in the content you want to add. See the instruction at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, drop us an email with ideas, questions or content to scbstudentwiki@gmail.com
