The Ecological Society of Australia is delighted to announce a new partnership with the Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment. Each year, the fund supports around 200 post-graduate students to conduct research in ecology, wildlife management, and natural history studies. The first round of applications are now open, and close on 31 March. Individual grants up to $22,500 (up to $7500 per year for up to 3 years) are available.

Welcome to the new look ESA Bulletin. Regular readers will have noticed a change to the type of content being featured. In the last issue, we featured three articles on how the Australian federal election might affect our funding, but the majority of content was the more traditional ESA Bulletin content (e.g., grant opportunities, job offers, general announcements).
This issue, the pendulum has swung the other way. We have five articles addressing the place of advocacy in science and five articles discussing potential career options for those who have just received their “Doctor” stamp; with several short pieces of ESA news and announcements. As an aside, the two themes in this issue pre-empt events taking place at the ESA Conference.
As the year rolls on, we are solidly preparing for the 2016 ESA conference in Fremantle. Abstracts have now closed and registration is now open for this exciting event. ESA previously had the annual conference at the Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle in 1999: much has changed since then and the Local Organising Committee is busy organising a very exciting event.
Those of you that have been reading the Bulletin for some years will notice that Ben Gooden is no longer editing the Bulletin. Ben has passed the torch onto me, and hopefully I will not drop it and burn the house down. As my first order of business, I would like to publically thank Ben for his work editing the Bulletin over previous years. Ben doesn’t get off scot-free however as he remains an ESA Director.
Another ESA annual conference is just around the corner and leading up to this year’s event in Adelaide the Society is offering a number of incentives to renew membership and spread the word to friends and colleagues. The Society is proud of the diverse range of opportunities we offer our members with new initiatives consistently being introduced for students and professionals across all ecology sectors so why not tell as many people as possible – and win a prize as well!
