We are an inclusive team that brings together researchers interested in conservation and ecology to engage in applied and cross-subject research. Our research covers a wide range of themes within terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems, including biodiversity monitoring, species and habitat conservation, restoration ecology, wildlife parasitology and ecosystem services. 

Our research ethos is “science for society”
