Feedback from past BWB conferences has shown that well over 90% of the
participants rate the event as one of the most high-impact, informative
and useful conferences that they attend. It fills an important niche
between academically focused meetings and policy focused conferences. BWB
brings together such a diverse mix of participants, with a sharp focus on
the science that guides effective conservation action, and plays a central
role in the NatureServe network’s ability to deliver on our mission. This
conference serves as our most important venue each year for introducing
innovations, knowledge transfer, training and coordination. It is also the
venue in which more than 100 of our partner organizations spend focused
time with us to share their own conservation challenges and solutions,
thus strengthening our future collaborations.
We hope you will join us in Baltimore.
