The CBC aims to foster conservation capacity at multiple levels, from individuals, to organizations, and the systems where they operate, by promoting collaborative, adaptive, and strategic thought and action in biodiversity science and stewardship.
We develop capacity for conservation through close, long-term collaborations with local and global partners, and by providing a diversity of open access resources. Our programs support conservation professionals at different stages of their careers; improve training and education; and target trainers and local leaders to continue to build capacity in others.
The CBC’s Biodiversity Informatics Program applies information technologies to collect, organize, and analyze biological and environmental data and develop new methods, software and training resources.
