Express your interest – new project to facilitate sharing of ecological information

We are looking for people to get involved by providing feedback and advice on a new project to facilitate information sharing in the ecological community. Our vision is to create an interactive online platform that allows applied ecologists – researchers and practitioners – to browse and search a wide variety of applied ecological content including grey literature reports, journal article summaries, and open access articles.

Representatives for the Public Engagement Working Group

We are seeking representatives for the Public Engagement Working group to help support the public engagement work of the Society. To achieve an appropriate balance of skills and experience on the working group, we would particularly welcome applications from Ordinary members with experience and expertise in equality and diversity, engagement evaluation, digital media or fundraising.

Full information on this opportunity can be found here.
