On July 23, 2018, Arun Dayanandan (President) and Kristen Hirsh-Pearson (Ex-Situ Board Member) of the Montreal Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology presented an interactive session titled ‘Conservation Outreach in Urban Schools: A Facilitated Discussion’ at the 4th North American Congress for Conservation Biology in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Centered on a conservation biology workshop pilot project started by Arun Dayanandan and Charles-Alexandre Plaisir (Vice-President, SCB Montreal) at a local high school for students from at-risk backgrounds, the primary goal of the facilitated discussion was to share the successes of the project, as well as to gather feedback from members of the Society for Conservation Biology community-at-large, in order to improve the project before a formal launch. Additionally, the discussion sought to create a shared resource for other chapters of the Society for Conservation Biology to implement in their respective regions.
