One of ESA's strategic goals is to create a better link with Indigenous people working in ecology and land management.
Over the last few years we have helped deliver a better connection through hosting symposia at our annual conference, producing a special issue in our EMR journal, and seeking sponsorship for Indigenous ecologists to participate in our conference.
