Wednesday, April 28, 2021
11:00 am Eastern Time
Curious about conservation social science? Want to know more about what it is and the many ways it can help us learn about our fisheries stakeholders? Then this webinar is for you! This webinar is designed to introduce non-social scientists to the world of conservation social science. We will overview the diverse fields and subfields that make up the conservation social sciences, learn the many tools available to help us understand people, and cover some of the many different types of questions social science can ask and answer about our stakeholders. The webinar will help non-social scientists think about ways social science can integrate with their own fields of study and work, and how it can be incorporated in management and conservation.
