“Black History Month is a time to celebrate black history, heritage and culture, and the iconic figures that have contributed so much, but this year, let’s make it about so much more. If you’re serious about allyship, it’s Time for Change: Action Not Words.” – Catherine Ross, Black History Month Editor.
In addition to this, we are excited to announce a month-long blog series, as we did back in 2020, from our journals which aims to promote and profile the work of Black ecologists and ecological practitioners. The aim of the series is for you to showcase your ecology and connect with other ecologists/collaborators or even potential employers! We want this to be an opportunity that opens doors across our international community.
We want to provide more of a platform for Black ecologists, not just during Black History Month, but as part of our ongoing commitment to promote Black voices in our community. Thank you to all of our past and ongoing contributors, and, if you would like to participate yourself, please get in touch!
