About Us

The Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) provides scientific expertise to support the conservation and recovery of biological diversity in its natural state through applied research, education, planning, and community service.

Our mission is to help save the diversity of life on this planet through applied conservation research and education. We conduct research - alone or in collaboration with others - to actively seek creative new ways to address a wide range of ecological problems from endangered species to regional conservation planning. We strive to develop better conservation tools, techniques, and analyses that can be used to stop what has been called the sixth great extinction episode on earth. Our education mission is focused on taking what we and others have learned and sharing that knowledge with the broader conservation community as quickly and as efficiently as possible. In both the research and education components of CBI, we welcome and encourage collaboration at every level.
