The 1st European Congress for Conservation Biology was organized by the
European Section of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB-ES) in Eger
(Hungary) in 2006. It brought together scientists, practitioners and
policy formers from all parts of Europe and beyond. It was a unanimous
decision of this first Congress that the event should not be a one-off and
a second Congress should be held in 2009 to maintain a regular forum for
exchange on conservation science and nature conservation practice.

The Congress theme, “conservation biology and beyond: from science to
practice” reflects the fact that delivering effective conservation
requires a range of actors. Conservation still suffers from these
different actors being poorly coordinated and there is work to do to
ensure a concerted effort. Conservation science needs to cover a broader
range of disciplines than just biology to be relevant to practice and
needs feedback from application on successes, problems faced and research
needs. In addition, conservation biologists often remain poor at
communicating the importance of their science to policy and practice;
mechanisms for better communication exist but need to be agreed upon and
invested in.

The European heads of States in 2001 have agreed to the target of halting
the loss of biodiversity by 2010. As we approach the deadline, we realize
that biodiversity loss continues – and in many parts of Europe may even
accelerate. Beyond 2010, halting biodiversity decline and restoring
ecosystem functions continues to be a challenging and ambitious endeavor
that needs the close interaction and cooperation between science and

The ECCB2009 will bring together the full range of conservation
professionals not only to report on latest results, but also to explore
the role of conservation science in policy formation and effective
practice. The congress will provide unique opportunities for exchange and

These are both exciting and challenging times for conservationists and we
expect Prague 2009 to be an event that will remembered as a milestone for
nature conservation in Europe and beyond! Andrew Pullin & Martin Dieterich
