who are we?

The central purpose of Biodiversify is to actively forge a stronger connection between science and practice.

Biodiversify is a conservation consultancy which advises a range of private, public and third sector clients who want to act for nature. We work at the cutting-edge of scientific research to employ creative and disruptive techniques to challenge the status-quo of how biodiversity is managed in practice. Our focus on social research and processes puts decision making at the heart of everything we do; this ensures that we can use evidence to effect change and work towards tangible benefits for biodiversity. Through our experience studying the negotiations and psychological biases that underpin governance processes, we are able to improve the use of evidence in collaborative decision-making processes. This enables people to make better decisions, supported by the social capital essential to delivering meaningful, long-term change.

Our speciality is addressing complexity.


Sometimes this can be high level; we are working with The University of Oxford to develop academic theory into the practical foundation of international biodiversity agreements. Alternatively, it can be highly applied, we have collaborated with the award-winning Dr Hinsley to translate her work on the illegal trade of orchids into actionable steps for international law enforcement.

We excel at helping clients understand, study and overcome complex, multifaceted problems.


Bringing together colleagues from around the world, Biodiversify makes it easy to connect with leading experts in various aspects of biodiversity conservation and access a diverse and expansive range of skills, knowledge and experience.
