The SCCS is the only international series of conservation conferences aimed entirely at students. It is a great conference to network and meet students from all over the world and meet with professional from world renowned NGO’s such as Tropical Biology Association, Flora & Fauna International, Society for Conservation Biology, etc. This year, the SCCS had around 180 delegated from 43 different countries.

Patrícia was able to speak with several master and PhD students, giving them the scope of the TROPIBIO project and contacts to follow up. 

Felipe gave a talk on his recent paper entitled "Social media data reveals multiple cultural services along the 8.500  kilometers of Brazilian coastline", that highlights an innovative way to assess cultural ecosystem services and the importance of strictly protected areas on providing such benefits for coastal users.
