Welcome to Cambridge Conservation Forum (CCF)

Cambridge Conservation Forum's purpose is to strengthen links and develop collaborations across the diverse community of conservation practitioners and researchers based in and around Cambridge working at local, national and international levels. Some 60 organisations based in the Cambridge area, whose primary focus is the conservation of biodiversity, are currently members of CCF including non-governmental conservation organisations, government agencies, university departments and consultancies. CCF is a founder member of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative (CCI), which grew out of long-standing collaborations between Cambridge Conservation Forum member organisations. These organisations remain important contributing members of CCF, as well as forging more formal working arrangements in collaborative projects as part of the CCI.
