We want you to know what is going on in the BOD, our meetings, our actions, members leaving, the new ones elected,... but text written in this blog cannot be taken an official position or statement of the Society for Conservation Biology. Probably it is not even an official statement of the section... as these need to be approved by the members.

The BoD meets in Freiburg (Germany) 19-21 February 2010

The BoD of the European Section of the Society for Conservation Biology will meet at Freiburg/Breisgau. The Baden-Württemberg State Ministry has offered for us to hold our next Board meeting at the wine research Institute in Freiburg/Breisgau. This will include a field trip to a project "Nature conservation in Vineyards" and a talk on the implementation of Natura 2000 in Baden-Württemberg by the head of the regional conservation administration. In principle the State Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Nature Conservation has expressed his interest to welcome the BoD.
Freiburg is a beautiful city in the upper Rhine valley and famous for its eco-approaches (Ecological Capital of Germany). Its university is quite famous. I have close links to the on site regional conservation administration. Foto: Aerial Picture Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, 16 August 2004, Thomas Maier (CC)
