My organization—Wildlife Conservation Network—is hosting our annual Wildlife Conservation Expo in San Francisco on Oct 8 this year. 15 of our conservation partners + 2 guest conservationists will be speaking during the full-day, dual track sessions. The remaing 3 of our other partners aren't speaking but will be there at their tables all day for 1:1 interactions. Plus we have 50 other wildlife NGOs exhibiting. It will be a day of drinking from the conservation firehose. If you're in the area on that day, I highly recommend attending. The networking opportunities alone are worth it, not to mention the talks. We pride ourselves on investing in training all of our partners on effective presentation and communications skills, so you will hear some amazing stories from the field about how their work is making a concrete difference in conservation.
Also this year we will be live streaming the talks. So for those who can't make it in person will be able to watch via Facebook Live or YouTube. More details to come on this.
Hope to see some of you there!
