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.

Tree Planting Day – UQ Campus, Brisbane (1 July 2015)

We are excited to announce that the first planting event for the SCB Brisbane-UQ chapter / UQ Sustainability habitat restoration project at the St Lucia campus will be occurring on Wednesday 1 July. Please see the link below for more details, and to RSVP (which is essential for catering purposes).


A meeting of the SCB restoration committee will be held prior to the planting event (i.e. week commencing Monday 22 June – location and time TBC) to discuss logistics for the day. In the meantime, please book in the morning of Wednesday 1 July to come and help out at what should be a really enjoyable event. Finally, for all those who are contributing to the collection of baseline bird data associated with this project – a huge thanks, and let’s keep the momentum going in the lead up to the first planting day!
