FCAL 2022 Conference
November 18, 2022
St. George's University
True Blue, Grenada
Learn from conservation leaders in the Caribbean and from around the world
The first annual FCAL conference took place on November 19, 2021. It included plenaries from keynote speakers actively engaged in local and global marine conservation; invited talks from regional experts and alumni from different sectors in the Caribbean; workshops on tools to enhance visual and written communication skills; and a panel where Marine, Wildlife & Conservation Biology alumni from St. George's University discussed their experiences navigating academia, NGOs, and government. The overwhelming positive feedback from attendees highlighted the need for such an event and the next one will take place on November 18, 2022.
Students enrolled in the Marine, Wildlife & Conservation Biology (Honors) program are invited to sign up and participate to our one-day workshop during the Fall 2022 semester.
Coming this Fall!
Date: September 2, 2022

Stakeholder Engagement for Coastal Development:
MWC students will have the opportunity to review details of a local coastal development project. They will become familiar with local government regulations and experiences from a developer. Consider the point of view of various stakeholders in different steps of the project development and approach issues from regulatory, economical, and environmental perspectives. Students participating in this workshop will not only learn from a current and relevant coastal development case study but also have the opportunity to provide their own recommendations. This interdisciplinary workshop offers great real-work applications to concepts taught in International Natural Resources Issues (BIOL300) and Wildlife Ecology and Management (BIOL405). Hence, it is recommended, but not required, that students participating to this workshop have successfully completed at least one of the courses.
