I am at ICCB-ECCB (27th International Congress for Conservation Biology) in Montpellier (France) this whole week (I have blogged about this some weeks ago). That’s a tremendous gathering of more than 2000 conservation scientists and biodiversity experts from all over the world and a fantastic opportunity to exchange views. So far, I have met numerous people working on or interested in discussing biodiversity offsets — both in my own symposium (Biodiversity management and development: challenges, opportunities and new directions) and spread all over the various sessions.
I will cover some of my observations (as well as my personal insights or take home messages) in a blog post, soon. This will also include a summary as well as the presentations that were part of the symposium. For the moment I’ll leave it there and simply share some visual impressions of the congress and surroundings.
Visit also the ICCB 2015 website for more information on the scientific program and check out twitter for the latest news and numerous personal observations…
