Day 1: Diogo reporting from the SCB Conference

Reporting from Beijing!

So today was pretty much day 0 with no presentations just a few short courses and workshops. Most participants will only arrive tomorrow. Today I participated in the Human/wildlife conflict workshop which was nice, few cards were exchanged.

I have scanned the program and from what I can see there is only one presentation from Costa Rica (about green turtles from Spotila's team). There are a couple of relevant jaguar presentations and some few turtle things. Our presentation titled "Conservation Volunteers: can anyone make a difference? is tomorrow at 17:10. I have practiced quite a bit and feel confident it will go well.

I will keep you updated on the new stuff I find. I think there is a lot of potential for good things, let see what happens.
