The Policy Section (founded in 2011) fosters interactions among ecologists who work at the intersection of science and policy – and those who have an interest in this nexus. This presentation will provide an overview of the section; highlight activities and collaborations among section members and with other ESA sections, chapters, and committees; and discuss ways that the Policy Section is working within and outside of ESA to communicate and exchange ideas to more effectively integrate science and public policy. Come learn why the Policy Section should be your home in ESA!
