The need for the formation of the Biological Society of Ethiopia was recognized as far back as the early 1970s. However, it took about 20 years of effort to bring the Society into being. Founded by 30 members in December 1989, the current number of members has reached to about 1000. The Biological Society of Ethiopia was formed at a critical moment when many issues related to biology were being raised. Among these are the conservation-development issue, population and food security, degradation of life support systems, loss of biological diversity and the like. To this end, the Society has been and is still organizing regular events where Ethiopian biologists and related professionals, interested in basic and applied research, as well as in education and environmental awareness, can deliberate on issues of common interest.
