who are we?
We specialise in using cutting edge science to understanding complex social and ecological systems.
We work with a broad range of practitioners, primarily in the conservation sector, to help them identify, understand and overcome the barriers that they face. To achieve this, we collaborate closely with leading scientists and experts from the NGO, academic, private and public sectors to translate their specialist knowledge into clear, practical recommendations.
Our work is led and overseen by our directors, and we draw on a wide range of associates to ensure that we have the most relevant expertise for each client.
Because we bring together experts who have dedicated their careers to solving real world problems, we can work with you to help you conceptualise and understand your problems. We then draw on our extensive network of collaborators to bring in the expertise needed to develop innovative, scientifically informed solutions.
The central purpose of Biodiversify is to actively forge a stronger connection between science and practice.
We achieve this by working with a wide selection of colleagues from around the world to develop solutions that draw from both cutting-edge theory and leading practice.
Our specialty 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 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.
