Message from Rebecca Degagne at SCGIS (Society for Conservation GIS):
We hope you're staying well and will join us for our upcoming SCGIS-CBI Webinar Series, which kicks off in two weeks.
We have a wonderful line-up, featuring a diverse group of speakers with presentations on using citizen science data to monitor threatened species, tracking land degradation with remote sensing, building relationships for career development, creating partnerships with Indigenous communities, and mapping bird migrations and threats.
If you register for a webinar and can't make the live presentation, you'll be sent a link to the video recording to watch at your convenience. The whole recording archive can be accessed here: https://scgis.org/webinar/index/past/1.

We're also planning on holding more SCGIS-CBI mixer-style meetups later in the year at rotating times, so folks from around the world can join in.
If you want to fast-track your involvement in the conservation community, volunteer for SCGIS! - Reliable people with time to contribute (though fall 2021, at least) are especially needed to support our virtual SCGIS Conference activities.
