About the CBI Associates program
Conservation and ecological sustainability issues are becoming increasingly urgent, complex and comprehensive in scope. Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) recognizes that it cannot house all of the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully address these growing challenges within a single institution.
The CBI Associates program aims to partner with researchers and scientists working in the fields of conservation and climate change, to further the reach and impact of science and technology in these fields. The program has been designed to enable researchers and scientists that are not in CBI’s employ to leverage the CBI brand and institutional infrastructure to obtain and manage grant-funded projects within an established and reputable non-profit organization.
