To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science, and use it to inform policy and management to catalyze change. The Society for Conservation Biology’s International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.

With over 700 marine conservation professionals and students in attendance, IMCC is the most important international event for anyone involved or interested in marine conservation.

The 6th International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC6) will be held in the sailing city of Kiel, Germany located on the Kiel fjord it’s waterfront position and maritime history is the perfect setting.
