Welcome to the website for the brand new Santa Cruz chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology! We are an organization dedicated to bridging conservation science and practice by initiating partnerships across the Santa Cruz conservation community. Just like this Santa Cruz puma kitten (photo by Tom McElroy), we are young but ready to take on the world! Please follow us for updates on events to get involved with local conservation projects. Also, please like us on Facebook to learn about conservation stories in your backyard: https://www.facebook.com/SantaCruzSCB.
