Short Summary

Furthering marine conservation in developing is incredibly important for global and local conservation, local economies and more. This campaign is to to help sponsor delegates from developing countries to attend the International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC), so they can bring back knowledge, skills and tools to further marine conservation in their countries, as well as present marine conservation issues and projects to marine scientists from around the world.

The Society for Conservation Biology's IMCCs are the most important international meetings for marine conservation professionals and students. To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science, and use it to inform policy and management, and ultimately to catalyze change. IMCC brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.

What We Need & What You Get

All funds received from this campaign will be used to help sponsor travel for students and marine conservationists from developing countries to attend IMCC3, 14-18 August 2014. IMCC3 will be held in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Impact

IMCC provides tangible outcomes in the advancement of marine science and marine conservation. Delegates from developing countries who attend IMCC make important contacts with international organizations who may help further their work, gain knowledge of successful marine conservation strategies, gain skills and access to tools to help marine conservation in their countries and present on issues and stories from their countries to make public their needs and efforts.

Improving marine conservation impacts many facets of life. In many developing countries, as well as others, improving marine conservation also leads to the betterment of public health issues, better management of fisheries leading to increased access to food sources, improved local and national economies, job creation and more.
