One World, One Conservation, One Partnership

The Governing Board of the Marine Section, Society for Conservation
Biology (SCB) invites your participation in the 21st Annual Meeting of
the Society for Conservation Biology.
The Meeting will be Hosted by: The Centre for African Conservation
Ecology (ACE) of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port
Elizabeth, South Africa, and co-hosted by the Africa Section of the SCB.
The meeting will feature a diverse array of plenary sessions, symposia,
workshops, organized discussions, contributed oral presentations, and
poster sessions.

The Marine Governing Board is particularly hopeful that African and
other international marine conservation biology scientists,
practitioners, and students will join us at this important meeting.  The
Local Organizing Committee for the conference has met with the Marine
Section and encourages our involvement in this 21st annual meeting, so
this conference offers a wonderful opportunity for marine scientists!

SCB is dedicated to effective communications regarding conservation
science, policy, and practice in all habitats on earth, with emphasis on
both conceptual and habitat-specific issues. The Marine Section
Governing Board is striving to ensure that communications about
conservation science at SCB reflect an increased consideration of marine
ecosystems, both in conceptual and habitat-oriented contexts.  Your
participation at the 2007 Meeting will help us all achieve this
important goal.

Also please remember that South Africa has spectacular marine and
coastal biodiversity!
