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.
