NatSCA Conservation Twitter Conference

Call for Papers: NatSCA Conservation Twitter Conference, January 2021


NatSCA is hosting a Twitter conference which aims to promote projects and stories relating to the conservation of natural history collections. The subject of each submission can be as diverse as the field of natural history itself, from storage projects, preventative work, treatments, new innovations, or to how recent world health events are shaping the way we work with collections. Join us for this great opportunity to explore conservation work relating to the range of natural materials including bone, taxidermy, fluid preserved collections, geology, botany and entomology.
