Ulysses S. Seal, CBSG founder and first Chair, began publishing CBSG News in 1990. It was printed and distributed by mail to CBSG members and colleagues. Back then, it served the same purpose our eUpdates do now, which is to relay information about current and upcoming projects to our members and donors. Over the years CBSG News evolved from a twice-yearly publication about all of our activities to what it is now: detailed proceedings of our Annual Meetings published once a year. Not only does this archive tell the story of CBSG history, but it also examines global species conservation efforts throughout the last 20 years.
