Summer is networking season. Hints for students (and the rest of us)

Drew, Joshua Adam

This summer I will be attending the 26th International Congress for Conservation Biology in Baltimore. I am quite excited, as these meetings are usually quite exciting. It will be an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and colleagues, to talk about new developments in conservation and to get feedback on my somewhat unorthodox idea of using population connectivity estimates to quantify shifting baselines. I am also attending this year for the first time as a director of a conservation biology MA program, so I’m excited to meet up with my colleagues and learn from their experience. Lastly I am going to be serving on the student networking panel. And to help me prepare for that panel I thought I’d write a piece about the values of networking.
