Eduardo Julia Miranda ICCB2017 edWe've just launched our third issue of Decision Point en Español at the ICCB 2017 conference in Colombia.

Decision Point en Español is our Spanish-language edition of Decision Point magazine. The third issue in the series was released this July to coincide with the International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB) 2017 conference in Catagena, Colombia.

CEED researchers held a workshop, 'Bridging the gap between conservation science and practice in the Spanish speaking world', to introduce the series and discuss its future direction. CEED Director Prof Kerrie Wilson officially launched the issue, and was joined by CEED researchers and Decision Point en Español editors Eduardo Gallo Cajiao and Duan Biggs. The audience hailed from many different countries including Chile, Costa Rica, Peru and Colombia.

Decision Point en Español was very well received, with many conservation researchers keen to subscribe and contribute articles. Copies of the latest issue were given  to NGO staff, academics, and staff from government agencies.

ICCB is an important conference in conservation biology, attracting over 2000 delegates from around the world. CEED had a strong presence at ICCB 2017, with dozens of presentations involving CEED students, staff and alumni.  

If you are interested in Decision Point en Español, or distributing it to colleagues, you can download free copies from the Decision Point website at Decision Point en Español. You can also read the articles online as posts.
