What's Conservation?

Conservation biology is a mission-oriented science that focuses on how to protect and restore biodiversity, or the diversity of life on Earth. Like medical research, conservation biology deals with issues where quick action is critical and the consequences of failure are great.


Thus, to preserve biodiversity, scientists must answer three general questions:

  1. How is the diversity of life distributed around the planet?

  2. What threats does this diversity face?

  3. What can people do to reduce or eliminate these threats? And when possible, how to restore biological diversity and ecosystem health?

Who can participate?

The congress will present projects and innovations that are being developed to conserve natural resources and biodiversity from different points of view like biological, political, social, innovation and technology development, etc. 


If you have a project to conserve biodiversity, this is your opportunity!   

I'm a high school teacher. How can my students participate?

We have different activities in which students can learn in an interesting way and at the same time get connected with researchers. Keep an eye for more information.
