The Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) is an international professional organization dedicated to promoting the scientific study of the phenomena that affect the maintenance, loss, and restoration of biological diversity. The Society’s membership comprises a wide range of people interested in the conservation and study of biological diversity: resource managers, educators, government and private conservation workers, and students make up the more than 10,000 members world-wide.

In 2014 the SCB-UQ/Brisbane chapter revised its strategic plan to focus our efforts on imminent threats to Queensland’s biodiversity and ecosystems, as well as indirect threats to conservation efforts in the region.
