Quick Talks

NRCC extends an open invitation to submit abstracts for Quick Talks at the 2023 Jackson Hole Wildlife Symposium. We’re seeking professionals from government, non-profit, and academic institutions to give 6-8 minute presentations on a current project or program. We welcome work in the areas of science, management, conservation, education, or policy situated in Jackson Hole or the GYE. This includes current research, as well as a new program or initiative at your organization or agency.

Presentations should provide an (a) overview of the project or program, (b) the significance to the broad environmental and social dynamics at-play in the GYE, and (c) the strategy you employ for achieving success. The focus should be on your personal and professional strategy to overcome barriers given the resources you have and contexts you work within.

An open Q&A forum with all presenters will be held at the end of the session.

Presentations should relate to one of the following topics:

  • Human-wildlilfe coexistence
  • Innovative conservation
  • Socio-ecological issues
  • Policy and management
  • Governance initiatives

We encourage submissions to emphasize how and why this work is important to living in coexistence with wildlife and each other, while sustaining a healthy future for all in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
