About Us


We apply the best science and technology available to accelerate the conservation, recovery, and adaptation of biological diversity in a fast-changing world.  


What We Do

The world is a complex place, and solutions to problems are seldom obvious or accomplished in isolation. We collaborate with a wide diversity of partners and use a range of tools - both social and technical - to support wise planning, policy, and management for biodiversity, ecosystems, climate, energy, and water resources. Our toolbox includes:

We work dynamically, finding creative new ways to solve problems. Whether your interest is endangered species, energy or water planning, or taking rapid climate adaptation or mitigation steps, we help you make complex decisions in efficient ways, using the best available evidence.

A Remarkable Journey 

The Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 1997 in Corvallis, Oregon. At CBI, we believe that saving the natural treasures on this planet is of paramount importance, and we feel a world without things "natural, wild, and free" is a lonely and dangerous one for our present and future generations. We are committed as scientists and as human beings to doing our best to create a better future. We believe humanity is responsible for the current ecological crisis, but we also believe humanity can create an alternative future - one that benefits all life. By blending our talents and skills with others who share our passion, we hope to contribute to finding solutions to conservation's greatest challenges.
