Your participation is important because this funding:

  • Contributes to the marketing, planning and operation of the conference, allowing important research and policy ideas to be communicated to a wider audience.
  • Ensures students, and attendees from regional and remote locations have a greater opportunity to attend, as registration fees are kept low.
  • Promotes conservation and ecological research and education.

Your organisation will benefit by supporting ESA-ESBO 2022 because you will receive:

  • A unique opportunity to gain exposure to an interested, relevant and influential audience in an informal yet informative environment.
  • The opportunity to demonstrate your organisation’s positive environmental and social values, and commitment to indigenous issues.

Indigenous travel support scheme

The Ecological Society of Australia and Society for Conservation Biology Oceania strive to facilitate stronger and better links between non-Indigenous and Indigenous people concerned with the conservation and management of Australia’s land and water resources. ESA and SCBO recognise that discourse around the understanding and management of ecological systems often centres on non-Indigenous values and methods, creating a disadvantage for Indigenous people lacking opportunities to participate in such discussions. Indigenous communities are the custodians of much of Australia’s biodiversity, and as such, perspectives derived from Indigenous socio-ecological knowledge systems are a crucial component for future biodiversity conservation.

The connection between Indigenous scientists, researchers, land managers and the wider ecological community is facilitated through the hosting of the Indigenous Ecological Knowledge symposia at ESA conferences. They provide an opportunity for Indigenous people to access wider networks and to have their perspectives considered within this important meeting of the Australian ecological community.

ESA conferences provide valuable and rare opportunities for Indigenous people from throughout Australia to share expertise, experiences and ideas with non-indigenous scientists. Indigenous attendees face economic barriers that can often prevent participation in this important event.

Please support Indigenous education, and the sharing of Indigenous ecological knowledge by participating in the Indigenous Travel Assistance Sponsorship Scheme.

Your contribution of AUD$1,800 (inc GST) per participant will assist with travel and registration for one Indigenous attendee. Up to 20 Indigenous participants will apply for Indigenous travel assistance. Your support to sponsor more than one attendee is greatly appreciated.

Contributors to the Indigenous travel assistance sponsorship scheme will receive the following acknowledgement as a supporter of the scheme:

  • Your logo in the conference handbook and on the conference app
  • Your logo on the conference website with a link to your website
  • Your logo on the holding slide displayed at the beginning of each plenary session, and the Indigenous Ecological Knowledge symposium

You may like to also consider sponsoring the Indigenous Ecological Knowledge Symposium (AUD$3,300 incl GST), in which Indigenous participants will present.
