Publishing science is at the heart of what we do as the world’s largest society of ecologists, and not only did we publish an incredible number of articles in 2021, we also saw the effects of that publishing ripple across the scientific and popular media.
ESA’s efforts to build both a more inclusive society and a more diverse science of ecology had a banner year in 2021. We celebrated our historical successes while simultaneously making great strides in the present and looking ahead to new ways to make ESA a place for all ecologists.
The challenges posed by pandemic made it hard for us to be the same kind of well-connected community we’ve been historically, but members’ loyalty to their Society and community was truly inspiring. We are able to grow best when we grow together!
Our support for sound policy supported by science continued unabated in 2021, and we even expanded some of our work. ESA members continued to show their commitment to engaging in scientific policy, while the leadership made sure that ESA was always part of the discussion in federal decision-making.
As a professional society, the career advancement of our members is central to our mission. In 2021, our members found that our support for careers in ecology took a big step forward, and they resopnded in kind by enthusiastically jumping into our programs.
Our science — and therefore the Society — benefit from having a great core of supporters. Volunteer leaders, donors and members who respect their peers and nominate them for leadership roles are vital to our ability to serve the international community of ecologists.
