Each presenter will be given 15 minutes to present six tweets about their work, across the following themes:

  • Conservation effectiveness
  • Biodiversity and human wellbeing
  • Wildlife trade and sustainable use
  • Species monitoring and conservation
  • The value of nature
  • Landscapes and livelihoods
  • Human-wildlife coexistence
  • Designing conservation area networks

Professor Bob Smith, Director of DICE, said, “The DICE Twitter Conference will be a fantastic opportunity to connect with a worldwide audience and showcase our latest work. We have an extensive network of members, honorary and associate colleagues, students and alumni, dedicated to producing quality, applied conservation research and they are looking forward to sharing their insights over the two-day event.”
