Other Activities

Nature Art Station
  1. What if you are given the chance to let nature inspire your creativity in a different way than to write papers and grants?
  2. How about taking a quick break from the Conference marathon of academic presentations?
  3. Would you like to meet new people from the Conference and from our host city Kuching while having fun and creating a piece of art to take home?

If you do, then come join us! For the first time ever at an ATBC meeting, we are offering Nature Art Station (NAS) on Ceramic mug paining that will take place daily for 1 to 2 hrs (time and venue TBC). There are 20-25 spots open each day. Please email Patricia Sampaio (NAS instructor) if you have questions.

WWF Education for Nature Global Conference

WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) is hosting its second global conference in Kuching, Malaysia from June 30 – July 1, 2018. The event is taking place between two significant international conferences (IMCC and ATBC) and will provide a unique space for conservationists from across Africa, Asia, and Latin America to share ideas, foster collaboration, and build understanding of important conservation issues.

During this two-day event, current and past WWF-supported leaders will facilitate discussions on issues of importance to the global conservation community, including: inclusion and diversity, data gaps, capacity development, and expanding participation through the creation of local NGOs.

WWF has a limited number of spots open to ATBC members. If you are interested in attending, please contact Andrea Santy, Director, Education for Nature at Preference will be given to proven and potential conservation leaders from Africa, Asia and Latin America.
