The new Chief Executive of Icon from January next year will be Sara Crofts. Sara will take over from Alison Richmond ACR who has been in the role since 2010.
Sustainability is a word that we are starting to hear more and more in our field, but it still has an air of mystery to it; how exactly does this concept apply to conservation? Sustainability in Conservation (SiC) is addressing that issue. The next generation of conservators holds the key to creating a more sustainable profession, and by incorporating these ideas at the training level, the field will organically grow towards a sustainable future. The SAP (Student Ambassador Program) puts the power in the hands of students.
