Conservation Research Institute



Come and discover the varied and vital work that goes in the Cambridge Conservation Initiative in the David Attenborough Building

Conservation has many sides and is tackled in a wide variety of ways. Join us in the David Attenborough Building to learn about the many different approaches being used to help conserve the world’s wildlife and natural landscapes, and to find out how collaboration is key to securing a sustainable future for all life on earth. The Cambridge Conservation Initiative is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and 10 leading international conservation organisations, all working to halt the biodiversity crisis. Get involved in some ‘citizen science’ by mapping the tree-scape of Cambridge. See some weird and wonderful natural history objects. Explore artwork inspired by wildlife and landscapes, and by the people who spur us on in our conservation efforts. Young people can explore conservation issues in their local environments through a mental mapping exercise. Come and hear from academics, charities, stakeholders and farmers about the Fens of East Anglia and what the future holds for this and other precious and fragile landscapes.
