Social and Networking

Even though we’re an online conference, we can still network with each other!

The organising committee is planning a range of events to allow for networking with a bit of fun thrown in.

Diversity at ESA

Monday 30 November, 1230-1330

At ESA we are committed to equitable opportunity, promoting diversity and an environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. This event is meant to celebrate diversity, while also raising awareness of issues regarding inclusion.

This year our very own Ayesha Tulloch will lead a discussion about how to make events more inclusive for diverse participants, with a focus on results from a recent review of LGBTQIA+ inclusion in global ecology and conservation events. All are welcome to participate in the discussion.

Stay tuned for more information!

ESA Queer Mixer

Monday 30 November, 1900-2000

Join us for the second annual ESA Queer Mixer! Grab a drink (or non-alcoholic beverage) and relax while you meet new people and chat in a safe and welcoming space.

This event will kickstart what we hope will become a Queer Ecologists Network, where people can raise issues, make friends, or just find a sense of community within the field.

Stay tuned for more information!

Online Trivia

Wednesday 2 December 2020, 1900-2030

Are you itching to flex your mental muscles? Sign up for the ESA Trivia Night and show off your knowledge of all things esoteric, with questions about butterflies, supercontinents and everything in between! Sign up as a team, or individually if you want to meet new people. Stay tuned for more information.

Some sample questions:
1. What is the next perfect number after 6?
2. In the original Wizard of Oz movie, what did they used to make the snow in the poppy field scene?
3. What does ENSO actually stand for?
4. What is the deepest lake in the world?
5. What was significant about Hesperia busiris, one of the world’s rarest butterflies?’
