Dear {cudar.best_name},

We are delighted to announce the launch of our fundraising campaign for 2019, which focusses on two key areas for the Department: support for research and for students to attend the final-year Field Course. If you would like to make a donation, of whatever size, we would be most grateful.

I would like to draw your attention to THREE great events happening this year:

Saturday 25 May 2019
Field Outing to Totternhoe Quarry in the Chilterns, led by Dr Ed Turner

Saturday 7 September 2019

Zoology Alumni and Friends Open Day, with Prof Nick Davies as the headline act

Friday 27 September 2019
Zoology Happy Hour 25th Anniversary Party

Celebrating 20 years of the Student Conference on Conservation Science
The Student Conference in action
Starting today, we are hosting the Student Conference for Conservation Science for the 20th time. The series gives opportunities for young conservation researchers from around the world to present their work and meet other young researchers. They also receive training in a range of new skills and meet the large numbers of practitioners from Cambridge's conservation community and beyond.

The SCCS is a joint venture between the University, the RSPB, and the Tropical Biology Association and its conservation supporters. It serves as a flagship event for the Cambridge Conservation Initiative.

So far more than 3,200 delegates from 133 countries have taken part, with more than 440 receiving SCCS bursaries and taking part in the Arcadia-funded post-conference internship scheme.

This year's event will be the last run by founder-organiser Rhys Green and also sees the retirement of long-time administrator Shireen Green.

Special events to mark the 20th conference include plenary talks from former SCCS-delegate Amy Hinsley, from Rhys Green himself, and from the chair of the Paris climate talks Christiana Figueres, as well as a student-focused question-and-answer session with Sir David Attenborough.
