To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science, and use it to inform policy and management, and ultimately to catalyze change. The Society for Conservation Biology's International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.
IMCC3 videos are undergoing processing and editing. We know you'd love to see them, but this process takes time. Please be patient. When videos are ready, we will post them online and make several announcements.
The program for the 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress is available for dowload. Be sure to check the website for updates. An additonal page for poster abstract can be found here.
We recommend downloading the IMCC3 Floor Plan, with key rooms highlighted, and keeping it handy to help you find where you need to go at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC). There will also be conference volunteers placed around the venue to point delegates in the right direction.
