We are a founding member of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, a unique collaboration between the University of Cambridge and nine leading conservation organisations that have a common interest in finding innovative solutions to the interlinked biodiversity and climate crises. We are based in the heart of Cambridge in the David Attenborough Building, which was designed to enhance collaboration and the sharing of perspectives across organisational and disciplinary boundaries.
The Institute is one of the Interdisciplinary Research Centre of Cambridge University, with a network of more than 120 researchers from all six Schools of the University of Cambridge. It supports multidisciplinary research on biodiversity conservation and the social context within which humans engage with nature. Find out more
