60th Annual Meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation

July 14 - July 18

The proposed theme, “Achieving Inclusive Science for Effective Conservation, Adaptation, and Resilience in the Tropics” resonates profoundly with current challenges and aspirations in tropical science and conservation. Tropical ecosystems, home to the majority of Earth’s biodiversity, face unprecedented threats from climate change, habitat loss, and overexploitation. The urgency to safeguard these vital systems aligns with global commitments, such as the Paris Agreement and the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, emphasizing adaptive and resilient conservation strategies.

Importantly, this theme acknowledges the critical need to address persisting imbalances in conservation science and a legacy of exclusivity. Historically, tropical conservation has often been guided by perspectives and priorities from the Global North, sometimes overlooking local contexts and knowledge systems. This imbalance has led to increasing calls for greater equity and inclusivity in shaping conservation priorities and methodologies, a call that demands our attention.
