Biodiversity Without Boundaries 2021 Conference

The NatureServe Biodiversity Without Boundaries 2021 Conference has gone virtual! Join us for four days of sessions featuring leading scientists, policy makers, and more.

This conference is a must-attend for biodiversity & conservation scientists and other professionals who strive to ensure our shared lands and waters are thriving now and in the future. Working with all sectors of society, from scientific research institutions and government agencies to non-profit organizations and private industry, NatureServe’s role of connecting science with conservation has never been more in-demand. Register for the conference to learn more about the new developments in our efforts to make it possible—and easy—for people to use accurate, current scientific information as the basis for conservation decisions and actions.

This year, the conference will explore a variety of topics showcasing the latest data, tools, and technology to support decision-making.
