DEADLINE: COMPASS Fellowships for Journalists @NACCB2018

Event Date: 
March 9, 2018

COMPASS will provide travel fellowships for journalists from the United States and Canada to attend the North American Congress for Conservation Biology (NACCB) in Toronto, Ontario, July 21-26, 2018. A range of activities is planned for this year’s NACCB, based on feedback from both previous journalist fellows and the scientists attending the conference.

Past COMPASS journalist fellowships to the North American Congress for Conservation Biology have proven wildly successful for journalists and scientists alike. At the previous two NACCB conferences in Missoula, Montana (2014) and Madison, Wisconsin (2016), journalists were woven throughout the conference activities, including being introduced during the opening plenary, and in some cases acting as moderators or discussants in sessions and symposia. A range of activities is planned for this year’s NACCB in Canada, based on feedback from both previous journalist fellows and the scientists attending the conference. An evening  ‘Pitch Pit’, where researchers pitch their science and received feedback from the journalists, will be back by popular demand.
