List of Conferences for Wildlife Conservation

The world of wildlife conservation is filled with so many unsung heroes, giving everything they have to save our environment, but the funding crisis is so severe that high-level organization of their work is almost non-existent.

Case in point, there was no single place a conservationist can go to discover which professional conferences, symposiums, or meetings are coming up since there’s no way to monetize it. The Biodiversity Group is far more concerned with creating usable services than padding our bank account, so we are happy to freely provide the only legitimate conference list for conservation biologists.

Note that there are other repositories out there but they are nearly all spam postings, so don’t fall prey to any links on sites like: or

If you would like to add your conference to our list, simply contact us with the link and we will add it.
