SER's 7th World Conference on Ecological Restoration
Share |

SER's 7th World Conference on Ecological Restoration took place in Iguassu, Brazil and was an overwhelming success! More than one thousand delegates joined us for five days of amazing plenary talks, oral presentations, field trips, networking and so much more. The conference provided a dynamic and engaging platform for knowledge sharing among not only scientists and practitioners, but also the many other stakeholders involved with ecological restoration. The delegates left feeling inspired by what they heard, saw and all the people they met.

SER's incredible conference partners, the Brazilian Society for Restoration Ecology (SOBRE), and Iberoamerican and Caribbean Society for Ecological Restoration (SIACRE), contributed greatly to the success of SER2017. This conference would not have been possible without their hard work and support.
