Reversing the Biodiversity Crisis
The urban pollinator project
Degradation of the natural environment is driving biodiversity loss on a global scale, affecting our own health and wellbeing.
One of the critical challenges of this century is to anticipate and then prevent further loss of biodiversity on land, freshwaters, and in the sea, given rapid climate change and the need to provide essential resources for a growing human population. Our research helps us to understand and predict how biological systems respond to environmental change, and how ecosystems can be managed to provide positive outcomes for biodiversity. We develop new approaches using the latest technology to further fundamental understanding of how biodiversity can be mapped, monitored and restored. Our research addresses this profound challenge at multiple scales, working with partners across disciplines, and generating impact through collaborations with industry and policy makers.
