The Latin America and Caribbean Section was formed in 2003 to unite conservation efforts in Central and South America. As part of the Society for Conservation Biology, the Section is able to pull on the influence and abilities of its members to facilitate efforts in this region.
More than 476 society members: practitioners, academics and NGOs from 19 countries of LACA (and 24 from other regions) are represented in our section. We look forward to diversifying membership from across LACA!
