We believe in a world where biodiversity counts

Our dedicated team combines scientific excellence, outstanding technical ability and a passion for nature

The Team

The Centre is home to a team of highly qualified experts in the biodiversity and ecosystem services of marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments. We also employ numerous ecological modellers, social scientists, economists, lawyers, GIS specialists, policy analysts and programmers, as well as a small administrative support team.

To deliver our work, the team is organized into 12 programmes, some thematic and some cross-cutting. Administrative support is provided through the Directorate.
