In response to Mascia et al.'s editorial “Conservation and the Social Sciences” in the June 2003 Conservation Biology, I am pleased to announce that the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) is working to meet the challenges set forth therein. In association with Peter Brosius (one of the editorial's authors) and others, the SCB is developing some foundational initiatives under the auspices of the Social Science Working Group (SSWG). The goal is to advance the role of the social sciences in both the SCB and the conservation community at large. We plan to launch a new website to collect information and resources ( http://www.conservationbiology.org/SSWG/ ) and have established an email discussion list ( firstname.lastname@example.org ; see http://list.conbio.org/mailman/listinfo/sswg/ for more information and to join) to keep interested parties apprised. I am also happy to report that several very competitive social science symposia are proposed for the annual meeting in New York City in 2004 and more are in development for the annual meeting in Brasilia in 2005. Finally, although the dialogue with sister societies in social sciences is just beginning, I am optimistic there will be many opportunities to promote cross‐disciplinary communication, learning, and collaboration with these organizations.
